Removing the FCG and running the bolt through it cycle will verify if there is enough clearance. Slightly canted sights can also be cured by re-aligning them. Don't let very minor problems discourage you from buying an AK, but instead use them as a bargaining chip to get a better deal. The things I would mainly look for is:
(1) the rivets being flush
(2) the receiver being square
(3) the bolt closes fully on a go gauge/live round
(4) examine the mag well to make sure it wasn't poorly grindded open
(5) excessive mag wobble.

Arsenal SGL is overall, a good quality rifle. Although I believe they're a bit over priced.

If you can pick one up from a reputable builder, and there are a handful here on CGN, then personally I'd go that rout.

Welcome to CGN, and keep us posted with your progress.
