IO has always been meh =:wvr

not a bad price for a truck gun, but someone has M70 Yugos for $ 399
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

IO sucks. While Century imports a Wasr from Romania, hogs out the magwell & adds the 5 US parts, & they are pretty good, IO imports a Polish Archer, hogs out the magwell & adds the 5 US parts, & it's a turd. Plenty of video on facebook. If they totally build it here, it's got to be worse. GARY

Check out the glowing reports from AK47.net.

Yea stay away from I.O.

Their builds, parts they use, and quality is so subpar that they make Century builds look good by comparison.

Inferior barrels, over-drilled gas ports, poorly treated steel in the receiver as well as it being out of spec from the beginning.

Stay away.

there is a post on AKfiles right now where a guy ordered a rifle from IO and it arrived with a cracked rear sight, the newer RSB is a cast part, for christ sakes ( save a few bucks ) [-( , and here is the kicker, the dealer made the customer deal with IO directly and he's gonna have to send it back cause they have to remove everything on the barrel to change out the RSB, and then probably refinish it, all for the same crappy cast part, hopefully not broken this time.....nice QC =:wvr

don't start grining yet [smilie=011.gif] or your disposable $$ will get a little more disposed
