Thumbs up Review of Interarms IAC 47 from Atlantic Firearms.

So I don't have pictures, but I did take my Interarms IAC 47 to an indoor range this afternoon. I will say I wad VERY pleased with the purchase.

It was also my first time shooting an AK in non-saiga sporter form. I was anticipating a lot more kick to it, but it wasn't bad at all.

It was only a 25yd range, but I managed a 1" group with 4 shots (for me, that's not that bad) with American Eagle 123gr FMJ.

Overall... I'm glad I bought it, and I would recommend it. Could I get the same results from a Wasr? Probably, but I have a nice rifle that isn't as common place as saiga converts and wasr 10s.

Plus... Atlantic Firearms and Afanas Guns Knives and Ammo in vacaville made the purchase and transfer painless.

Hope this is moderately helpful.

I shot more than that... I wanted to show an example of a grouping.

I won't be able to hit the range until after I move out, so until then... my four shot pic will have to do

Congrats, great it lived up to your expectations!

BTW, IAC make good AKs, I'm eyeballing their Polish Tantal, which can be had for about $600 with a chrome lined barrel & dark gray Parkerized finish:

Those Tantals are nice. It was that or the Polish UF...Having over 5k rounds of 7.62x39 made that choice easy. One day.
