When I bought mine a couple years ago, it came with 2 steel 30 round mags. One of them worked fine, but the other had follower problems. I just took the offending mag back where I bought the gun and they swapped it for another. That one worked fine, as do all tapco and the usual steel mags from various sources.
I have had no complaints at all with mine. Admittedly, the wood furniture is a little crude, but then it's not a collectors item either.
I plan to still have my AK post-apacolypse.
