I havent had one of their fully built guns in my hands, but have helped a local buddy build one from WBP parts, and the parts seemed to be of high quality and same spec as any surplus AK parts I had on hand.

The Lynx seems decent. Comparable to a Draco

the Lynx is a saiga12 clone. i will probably go to the hernando sportsmans club in a few weeks with it.

i am going to be pretty critical on it, seeing how i handled the warranty contract on the saigas for a wihle, nevermind how many of them ive worked on or handled.

Oh ok. I assumed you meant the WBP Lynx AK47 from Poland. Thats my bad.

Those Lynx shotguns from China, I think SDS imports brought those in. I've read somewhere that it's DDI's manufacturer from their DDI-12 shotgun, which was, from what I read about it, not the greatest of quality. I think the Lynx was the "improved" version of the failed DDI-12, so its probably better than it's predecessor.

The only Chinese "Saiga" clone I've ever had was the Catamount Fury, it wasn't a bad gun. A little rough around the edges for for its price point wasn't bad overall.

How'd it end up shooting for you? Does yours have the new (improved?) stainless bolt carrier?

Classic has the new (?) Lynx for $349 , its tempting. If yours ran well I may have to try to work on getting one.

it doesnt have the chrome carrier, wish it did. shot fine with 3" loads, but kisses the bolt buffer on lowest gas setting. i did minor polishing to the fcg and bolt underside, helped a little. may give it a serious fcg job in the future
