yep was i there yesterday and they have it on sale for $519.00 sale ends at the end of the week.
anyone know if these take standard Ak mags???? can you just put a pistol grip on it and a solar tactical lock after you buy it?

I held one the other day. The little baby mag it comes with looks funny, but I think they take standard mags. It already has the pistol grip nut hole cut out of the receiver, so you just need the nut and grip. You'll need to add a mag lock and use only 10 round or less mags if you go with a pistol grip of course.

The thing I didn't like was the receiver on the one I held didn't seem to even be painted. It seemed like it was just bare metal, strange.

READ the post in the Centerfire Rifles forum here.

IO is somewhat like Century Arms in the ongoing quest for quality...they have yet to find it.

My $0.02 is that their quality is in keeping with the price, the rifles are generally in the POS class.

$519 is still a pretty big chunk of change for some sheet metal stampings of an unoriginal design that's basically in the public domain...

They had those at the Big 5 in Sac...I almost bought the Colt AR in .22 there.

Not these, I think you are thinking of the PAR-1.
