I can see it ... good enough for that point. Nice looking rifle!

My friend Kenny asked me once when I was going to shoot his photo, "Can you make me look good?" I said, NO, I am a photographer, NOT a magician!!!

The Russian Silver Bear ammo is quite good for the money...that is, before the panic. Can't find them now. For target practice, any of the Russian steel cased, non corrosive will work just fine. For self-defense, go with Corbon, Double Tap or Hornady, relatively expensive but you don't need much.

Well it's not a pure sporter nor is it modeled after an military ak. It's a blend between the to I suppose.

I didn't mean that in a negative way!
I wasn't saying it wasn't a izhmash! it just looks like a blend of their sporter models and a AK style one?

Can u PM details where you got it? I have a friend who would love that rifle!
