When you're buying a new AK, it's important to look it over and make sure it's not a broken piece of shit
Things to look for when you're buying a new AK are:
Quality of rivets, are they all flush or are they squished and fucked up?
Is the barrel CHF and chrome lined?*
Are the receiver rails done properly
Is it head spaced properly?**
What is mag lockup like, do they wobble like shit or will they feed properly? Is the cut done right?
Are the sights canted?
Are any other pressed/pinned parts canted?
*Does not apply to US made barrels which are nitrated
**Buy a few gauges for this, they're cheap and you'll use them a lot
