Rifle, NDS-3 receiver
Romanian parts kit
Tapco trigger
AK builder rivets
Fitted Monsterman Grip

I was sold this rifle from FEDUPWBS, looking for my first AK type rifle. I was looking for a rifle that would be good for tactital rifle matches and blasting in the woods. This rifle is way beyond my any expectations. Fit and finish is top notch. The rivets are perfect, the wood is a very deep red varnish. Looks way too good for an AK. The trigger is the best part of the rifle. It is so smooth and light which makes it awesome for shooting paper. Accuracy is very good keeping in mind the factory iron sights have a very short sight radius. I managed to get 3" groups at 50 yards with Wolf ammo.The rifle is very light. This had me a bit concerned about recoil. I was pleasantly surprised that recoil is very minimal. The slant brake gets the rifle back on target very quickly.
So far the rifle has have fired 450 rounds through it in 2 range sessions. Half of which were shot not by me but by curious folks that wanted to check out the rifle. All had nothing but positive things to say. I did have one problem that was ammo related. I had a primer blow out while a fellow calgunner was shooting it. I think a piece if primer got lodged in the firing pin hole causing 2 light strikes but once it cleared it ran 100%.
Fedup installed a side mount for an optic but since I got the rifle I decided to go with an Ultimak mount and a Burris red dot which is back ordered. Overall this is the best rifle buy in my collection, and the most fun.

No, thank you!! This rifle opened my eyes to the AK. I have heard so much negative talk about these things I never took a lose look at what they were about. The price of ammo forced me over the edge.
