Personally, I wouldnt buy one without being able to hold it in my hands... Century AKs are not exactly known for their reliability...

Mine is pretty decent. Front site is canted a bit but it has been totally reliable. Got bad vibrations off the Tapco stock and it always bit my face a bit when shooting. Put a wood stock on it now and a '74 brake and it shoot wonderfully. The G2 trigger is very nice. Accuracy is less than great and the barrel isn't chrome lined. But yeah, buying anything Century is a bit of a gamble.

To me, Century guns are cheaply made, cobbled together toys that can be tuned into decent guns. If you can inspect it, and the gunshop is reputable, I'd get one just for the fun of it. Fwiw- I've seen Arsenals at gunshows lattely for like $600. Have fun with whatever you end up buying.
