Brutus' Description

 I really like these rifles. They have really nice wood, a beautiful metal finish, and the fit and rivet work is excellent. 
To me these American Made AK-47 Rifles by I.O. are the finest bang for the buck of any AK type rifle on the market today.
Each rifle comes complete with two 30 round mags, cleaning rod, muzzle break and cleaning kit with pouch. Includes integrated scope rail. 
Beautiful wood furniture with a proprietary matching polymer grip... 7.62x39 caliber,
Accepts all high cap mags and drums. The Sporter rifle is semi-automatic, long-stroke piston-operated rifle which is chambered in the traditional 7.62x39mm cartridge. The construction and design is based directly from Polish AKM blueprints. The Sporter also features several upgrades over the traditional AK, including a CNC-machined scope mount rail on the left side of the receiver, a recoil buffer, an extended mag release, and a bolt hold open safety.

The only parts on this rifle that are not made in the U.S. are the beutiful laminated wood furniture sets which are custom made in Poland.

The sights on these rifles are checked for straightness by putting each rifle in a fixture and shooting a laser beam down the sight plane...
If the beam does not fall true on the sight path, the rifle does not ship. This prevents canted sights and allows the rifle to come outof the box closer to zero. 

These are super nice.   

Heat treated receiver, Brand new US made parts, improved trigger components, includes recoil buffer, wood furniture,extended mag
release for rapid mag exchanges, Nitrite barrel, CNC machined scope mount rail, bolt hold open feature, 2-30 rds magazines,
Built entirely in the US parts and labor. Comes with a foam lined hard case


 Rifle carries a limited lifetime manufacturer's warranty and is completely American-made

Note - Mag color or pistol grip color may vary from images depending on availability but will be either black or ruddy red.

I couldn't ask for much more from a $500 rifle. The fit and finish is solid and even my local FFL couldn't believe how much I paid for it. Minus some hammer snag, this rifle seems like it won't have any problems.

Great gun
Review by jon on 3/16/15

I took this gun to the range for the first time and it shot flawlessly no jams and was dead on the fit and finish is very good io needs to check the cleaning equipment though it does not fit the rod on the gun but no big deal also all my oil was spilled out of the tin contaner again no big deal just a heads up. Classic fire arms is a great site to order from as a matter of fact I put them on my home screen on my phone lol if your thinking about getting one its a perfect gun from top to bottom.
good deal

A great American made AK
Review by Outlier on 2/5/15
Quality
I picked up my rifle from my FFL yesterday. All in all, a great rifle right out of the case.

Pros -
AMERICAN MADE
Great price point
Overall quality is great
Furniture is REALLY nice!
Functions REALLY well!!
Fit and finish are great!

Cons-
The made in USA sticker... WTH???? on the stock? Sticky residue that the consumer gets to deal with??? Poor choice IO! Use alcohol to remove so you don't mar the finish.
Case had two broken latches right out of the box (who cares about a case anyway)
Plastic mags are junk (as are most plastic AK mags)

My only recommendation on improvement for Classic would be to sell the rifle by itself for $450 and tell IO they can keep their flea market accessories for their next rummage sale.

I definitely recommend the rifle for anyone looking for a quality made AK!
Great deal for the money
Review by khod6595 on 1/20/15
Quality
Lots of good things about this rifle!
Pros:
Beautiful finish on the wood and metal
Advertised to come with 2 plastic mags however when I opened the box there were 3 inside (pleasant surprise!)
Put 100 rounds though mine during its first range session and not a single failure to feed or extract with steel case and brass fmj bullets and factory mags
Zero mag wobble with the supplied plastic mags and very minimal wobble with some surplus metal Bulgarian mags I had on hand
Comes with a metal trigger pin retaining plate and a recoil buffer
The rivets were done perfectly
Very accurate! Mine can shoot about 1.5 to 2 moa with better quality brass case ammo and about 2.5 moa with cheap wolf ammo. Not too shabby for an AK
Iron sights were dead on out of the box
Cons:
The bolt tends to get stuck and be a little rough at a certain point on the slide but if you handle the gun like a man and polish up the internals that shouldn't be an issue. This tends to be an issue in almost all AKs out there though
The gaudy "made in the USA" sticker on the stock left a sticky residue however some isopropyl alcohol took it off without damaging the finish on the wood
I can't seem to get 30 rounds into the plastic mags that came with the gun. I can only get 23 in one, 26 in the second, and 27 in the third mag
Scope rail was slightly pointing down but my scope had enough vertical adjustability to make up for that to sight in at 100 yards

All in all i think IO Inc finally got it together and is putting out a quality product!
Great American Made AK Rifle!
Review by Christopher on 12/8/14
Quality
I bought this rifle a few weeks ago because of the Youtube video that was posted on the Classic Firearms page. I put full faith in them that they sell quality products, since I also bought a Waffen Werks AK-74 from them and it works like a charm. I probably put around 200 rounds through it with three different types of ammo brands (Wolf Military Classic, Wolf Russian Surplus and TulAmmo) and it fired every time with no malfunctions what so ever. The only issue I had was with the plastic magazines that came with it because they started to get chewed up already on the locking lug. I bought some BHO Yugoslavian metal surplus magazines before hand and those worked excellent in holding the bolt open after the magazine was empty and even worked very well with the safety selector in being able to lock the bolt open. Great rifle for an American made Polish AK-47.
would be five stars but....

I purchased this rifle a few weeks ago. It came with 2 black I.O.mags and a cleaning kit. The wood stock set is very nice except for the "made in USA" sticker on the butt stock, Taking it off required refinishing the stock. The bolt and carrier ride very tightly over the hammer when charging a round into the chamber. Iwas told that is normal for the tapco trigger group being used. Took it to the range and fired about 80 to 100 rounds.Between the 2 I.O.mags and 2 metal surplus mags ,I had about 6 to 8 rounds jam on the way into the chamber. Hoping that is a mag problem and not the rifle. Most rounds were tightly grouped about 4 inches to the left and low. I did not have a sight adjustment too; with me , so I changed my point of aim and hit the ceneter consistantly making one big hole in the center. I did adjust the sight pin when I got home waiting to try it again. I purchased some tapco plastic mags and was able to hand cycle each round without any catching on the way to the chamber. I hope these solve the feed issue. Overall I loved the way it looks and the way it shoots and it also appears to be very accurate. at least at 25 yds. If there was not any feed issues on my first trip to the range I would have easily given this 5 stars
super nice for the price

I had purchased this rifle in early october, had a may of 2014 inspection sticker on it. It came with cleaning kit, 2 black mags and a hard carry case. The wood is nice although the "MADE IN USA" sticker on the butt stock did not remove easily and left residue which forced me to refinish it. I took it to the range and fired about 80 to 100 rounds using the io mags that came with it and some surplus metal mags. I had about 6- 8 jams where the bullet nose caught before it could make it into the chamber. I am hoping this is just a mag issue and not the rifle itself. I bought some tapco mags and hand feeding them was ok 100%. At 25 yds. the rifle shot low to the left by 4 to 5 inches but were all tightly grouped at 25 yds. Could have been me trying to shoot with eargear on at the range. I did adjust the sight pin over some when I got home, as I did not have my site tool with me. I hope that corrects that issue. That being said I made a few more shots just putting my aim over a little and they all landed near the center nearly punching out a big hole in the target. The bolt and carrier are very tight hand cycling the rifle, but I hear that is normal with the tapco trigger group that is being used. That did not result in any cycling issues while firing. The fit and finish is very good and overall so far I am liking this rifle despite the bad reviews I have read. Mostly those are on older rifles made before I.O.moved to Florida.I would have given this rifle five stars had there not been any feed issues when firing.Keeping my fingers crossed on that one.
Great features, but........
Review by Big John Georgia on 9/12/14
Quality
This rifle comes with some outstanding features, including a couple that are not mentioned in the description. It comes with a retaining plate in the reciever to replace that finicky trigger pin holder. The bottom foregrip wood is also augmented and bulged out, i'm assuming to help mitigate the heat radiation from the barrel when shooting. It grips nicely, too! Both of these features were an unexpected, pleasant surprise!
As mentioned in the description, it comes with an extended mag release, and these are NICE. Recoil buffer already installed upon arrival, wood is very nice, scope rail looks good.
Now for the operational parts; Reciever cover fits great! No loose wobble or rattling. It has the bolt hold-open feature, which is an awesome addition. However, the thickness of the recoil buffer interferes with the hold-open feature. The bolt carrier will not recede back FAR enough to catch. I suspect the recoil buffer face needs to be ground down just a tad to give the bolt carrier the clearance to catch on the safety indent. Quite self-fixable.
Trigger feels good, internal guts are all brand new parts, mag well was carefully cut, and mags fit appropriately right out of the box, no mag grinding or fitting needed. The reciever is dimpled as well to facilitate a nice mag fit. Front sight appears dead on and the sighting block is straight.
Now, for all of the stellar features this gun comes with, and there are many, I gave it a 3 star rating. Reason; The front end of this rifle was probably assembled at 4:45 pm on a Friday, and the front end jockey was anxious to start his weekend. That lever that holds the gas tube in place just flops around. The gas tube stays secure, but that latch just flutters around.
The second front end problem is that lower forearm securing bracket, Loose, and rattles around, won't lock up tight. Thus, the lower handguard slides back and forth loosely, at least 2 millimeters worth of movement. And then the cleaning rod will NOT come out. It is hung up on something inside, and it just spins around, but will not come out.
If not for those front end problems, this rifle would be the best deal of the Century purely for the extra features ALONE. But i will contact Classic tomorrow for a rifle exchange. Those loose levers are not acceptable, and I want the cleaning rod to function properly.
I hate returning something that i'm DYING to shoot, but I do not want to put any unwarranted mileage on the rifle.
My verdict? BUY it! This rifle is feature-rich, and a lot of bang for the buck. Just check out those issues upon recieving the rifle and ensure those latches are solid.

Review by mn9130sc on 2/8/14
Quality
This product was not actually in stock, even though website said it was, which caused delay in delivery. Even though I have had very good experiences with Classic in the past they were not forthcoming about this "not actually in stock" issue and I did not find out the real reason for the delay until I made multiple calls.
Rifle arrived as stated in add. Fit and finish appear to be very nice. Magazines with rifle would not fit without some minor filing/fitting. Additional poly mags I purchased also had to be fitted. I have not tried metal mags yet.
Had several jams in first 40 rounds or so, but none in subsequent 80 rounds. Acuracy may not quite be as advertised, but very good for an AK.
Overall a really nice American Made AK. I just wish I had been told up front that they did not really have my rifle in stock and there would be a delay of about a week.

Hi mn9130sc - Thanks for posting your review of this rifle. However, I do want to point out that anything you see advertised on our site as in-stock is indeed in-stock. In fact, the only way for a gun to be populated into our online available inventory is for the serial # to have been entered into our electronic bound book which then populates our website. Now, we were certainly behind in shipping for while (caught up now) as we recently were inundated with a high volume of orders. Sounds like there may have been a miscommunication somewhere and we do apologize. Thanks and God bless....

I bought some tapco mags and hand feeding them was ok 100%. At 25 yds. the rifle shot low to the left by 4 to 5 inches but were all tightly grouped at 25 yds. Could have been me trying to shoot with eargear on at the range. I did adjust the sight pin over some when I got home, as I did not have my site tool with me. I hope that corrects that issue. That being said I made a few more shots just putting my aim over a little and they all landed near the center nearly punching out a big hole in the target. The bolt and carrier are very tight hand cycling the rifle, but I hear that is normal with the tapco trigger group that is being used. That did not result in any cycling issues while firing. The fit and finish is very good and overall so far I am liking this rifle despite the bad reviews I have read. Mostly those are on older rifles made before I.O.moved to Florida.I would have given this rifle five stars had there not been any feed issues when firing.Keeping my fingers crossed on that one.
    Great features, but........

    This rifle comes with some outstanding features, including a couple that are not mentioned in the description. It comes with a retaining plate in the reciever to replace that finicky trigger pin holder. The bottom foregrip wood is also augmented and bulged out, i'm assuming to help mitigate the heat radiation from the barrel when shooting. It grips nicely, too! Both of these features were an unexpected, pleasant surprise!
    As mentioned in the description, it comes with an extended mag release, and these are NICE. Recoil buffer already installed upon arrival, wood is very nice, scope rail looks good.
    Now for the operational parts; Reciever cover fits great! No loose wobble or rattling. It has the bolt hold-open feature, which is an awesome addition. However, the thickness of the recoil buffer interferes with the hold-open feature. The bolt carrier will not recede back FAR enough to catch. I suspect the recoil buffer face needs to be ground down just a tad to give the bolt carrier the clearance to catch on the safety indent. Quite self-fixable.
    Trigger feels good, internal guts are all brand new parts, mag well was carefully cut, and mags fit appropriately right out of the box, no mag grinding or fitting needed. The reciever is dimpled as well to facilitate a nice mag fit. Front sight appears dead on and the sighting block is straight.
    Now, for all of the stellar features this gun comes with, and there are many, I gave it a 3 star rating. Reason; The front end of this rifle was probably assembled at 4:45 pm on a Friday, and the front end jockey was anxious to start his weekend. That lever that holds the gas tube in place just flops around. The gas tube stays secure, but that latch just flutters around.
    The second front end problem is that lower forearm securing bracket, Loose, and rattles around, won't lock up tight. Thus, the lower handguard slides back and forth loosely, at least 2 millimeters worth of movement. And then the cleaning rod will NOT come out. It is hung up on something inside, and it just spins around, but will not come out.
    If not for those front end problems, this rifle would be the best deal of the Century purely for the extra features ALONE. But i will contact Classic tomorrow for a rifle exchange. Those loose levers are not acceptable, and I want the cleaning rod to function properly.
    I hate returning something that i'm DYING to shoot, but I do not want to put any unwarranted mileage on the rifle.
    My verdict? BUY it! This rifle is feature-rich, and a lot of bang for the buck. Just check out those issues upon recieving the rifle and ensure those latches are solid.

    This product was not actually in stock, even though website said it was, which caused delay in delivery. Even though I have had very good experiences with Classic in the past they were not forthcoming about this "not actually in stock" issue and I did not find out the real reason for the delay until I made multiple calls.
    Rifle arrived as stated in add. Fit and finish appear to be very nice. Magazines with rifle would not fit without some minor filing/fitting. Additional poly mags I purchased also had to be fitted. I have not tried metal mags yet.
    Had several jams in first 40 rounds or so, but none in subsequent 80 rounds. Acuracy may not quite be as advertised, but very good for an AK.
    Overall a really nice American Made AK. I just wish I had been told up front that they did not really have my rifle in stock and there would be a delay of about a week.

    Hi mn9130sc - Thanks for posting your review of this rifle. However, I do want to point out that anything you see advertised on our site as in-stock is indeed in-stock. In fact, the only way for a gun to be populated into our online available inventory is for the serial # to have been entered into our electronic bound book which then populates our website. Now, we were certainly behind in shipping for while (caught up now) as we recently were inundated with a high volume of orders. Sounds like there may have been a miscommunication somewhere and we do apologize. Thanks and God bless....
