    Default Got a RAS 47 , and I am shocked at how nice it is.

    So after I saw the Zhukov Furniture I ordered a Plumb Set with the Idea of putting it on my AK74 but when it arrived I simply couldn't bring myself to cut the forward sling loop and Hand Guard retainer off so I set the furniture aside. I was considering building out a kit to put it on when I stumbled across a review of the RAS 47 .Then I looked at a couple online reviews . I priced a barreled kit and receiver and a RAS 47 was about 40 dollars more. So despite some past experiences with Century that had left me leery I decided to take a risk knowing that it would be likely I would have to address one of the QC issues mentioned in the early reviews.
    When it arrived I was shocked, fit and finish was so good that I would not have been surprised to have been taking it out of a box marked Arsenal or Krebs . ( currently own 3 Arsenals) The finish is consistent and very nicely colored and textured how it will hold up only time will tell.
    The blonde wood is some of the prettiest I have seen on a AK in a very long time. ( I considered leaving it on the gun it is so nice) everything is straight as an arrow. riveting looks perfect and everything is tight and there are no rattles. As others noted it lacks a cleaning rod and cleaning rod. It also has , what has to be the goofiest pistol grip I have ever seen or felt. Also the Century Shepards hook will be getting switched out.
    It was nice enough that I left it alone for a day then last sunday I rolled up my sleeves and grabbed a dremel and did the deeds

    I am no expert but if you are considering building a custom AK rifle the RAS 47 seems like a great foundation to start with and I hope Century will will produce a RAS 74

    Looks good. Thanks for the review. I've been wondering about if that furniture would grow on me, and it has. That looks nice. Modern and fresh.

    I actually didn't find all the stuff in the same place . When the local funshop guys got back from Shot and showed me the lit on the Zhukkov I decided I wanted it. I happen to be standing in-the about 3 months later when they were on the phone to a wholesaler who was taking the order when I heard one guy say to the other do we want any Zhukovsets , I butted in and said yes you do order me a Plumb set. It came through but didn't have the pistol grip so I just ordered in direct from Magpul. If you can stand paying retail ordering from Magpul may be the quickest way of getting everything.
