The eary ones are the ones to get ahold of. The later ones in the past year seem to be questionable...

Another thing is to not look at the lifetime warranty as much of a selling point. First off... it is an AK. Second is that the warranty is only as good as the company is around. Lancaster's future is unknown due to a couple issues with this last year's production...

I have a milled Lancaster and it is great all around excep the furniture is soft wood and chips easy. The finish was beutiful though. I would not buy directly from them as their customer service is horrid and the owner has a proven lack of integrity. If you can buy one from a distributor in stock I say go for it as long as it is not a stamped ak74. They had some issues with the production of those. Again, only buy a Lancaster if it is in stock from a distributor.
