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 with 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 1 - Rifle ships in a Hard Case with internal foam padding made by Royal Case Company. Case are new but are primarily intended for added protection during shipping and should in most cases provide years of service after receipt. However, the hard case itself is not warrantied by Classic Firearms and no returns or exchanges will be accepted on the cases. 

Note 2 - 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.

Review by Savio on 7/20/15
Quality
This was my first online gun purchase. The process was simple, shipping was fast and everything was as advertised. The gun is well built and the wood is beautiful, the pictures do not do the laminated stock any justice. The case is of good quality and the two mags fit real tight with no play, almost too tight. Im sure the mags will not be so tight after a little use.
Good value
Review by Ray on 7/17/15
Quality
For this kind of price, this AK offers a great value. The hard case and the extra name brand mags I received are great additions to this firearm and do an excellent job of sweetening the deal. My AK came in flawless condition. My only complaint is that the big "made in america" sticker was hard to remove without damaging the wood stock. But, for this price, it is a great entry level AK, especially with the scope mount, which makes it easy to use whatever optic you want on it. Has yet to jam and is very accurate as well.
Not an AR but awesome in its own way
Review by stefan on 7/8/15
Quality
Got the AK from classic and as always happy with classic's fast shipping and really impressed with their emails keeping me posted on the progress of the package as it worked its way to me. I had heard that I.O. was trash but thought that I would buy one since they moved to Florida and supposedly improved their quality. The AK looked good. I liked the larger front grip. My son and I took it to the range after I cleaned it and shot about 150 rounds. No troubles at all--the front grip area gets pretty hot pretty quick. We compared it to my AR and although I think the AR is superior, the AK is pretty awesome too. I would recommend I.O. to others.
Nasty stickers
Review by JJ on 5/22/15
Quality
The firearm looks and functions great, has a sweet smooth trigger and I would have given I.O. 5 stars if they hadn't put stickers on both sides of the rifle stock took some elbow grease, first with alcohol then Goo Gone to get it all off. I would most diffidently would recommend this firearm to friends and family.
Couldn't be more pleased

If you want to spend more for an AK go ahead. But you will be throwing your money away! I took a chance on I.O. Inc turning themselves around and I'm glad I did. This rifle is everything I hoped for. NO MAG WOBBLE AT ALL! Wood is beautiful. I have three different mags and all work great. NO malfunctions in the 200 rounds or so that I've put through it.
Great Rifle at a Great Price
Review by Grey98 on 5/16/15
Quality
I was very hesitant to purchase this rifle after hearing about Inter Ordanance's past issues, however I loved the look and price of this rifle and heard they have made major improvements with a new facility. I purchased this rifle along with a Serbian N-Pap. The N-Pap is difficult and somewhat costly to customize, but slightly better quality. This akm247c has not let me down one bit however. I.O. seems to be on track; this rifle looks great, fit and finish is much better than a WASR 10/63, and I've had no mechanical issues after a few hundred rounds. I'm very pleased with this rifle.
Great gun!
Review by Derrick on 5/6/15

I just picked mine up and I am very pleased with my purchase! The only "problem" i have is one of the lips to close the case is broken so it doesn't stay closed in one spot, But that doesn't bother me. It still holds the rifle. The rifle looks and feels amazing! I was told that my rifle would ship 8-10 business days, but mine shipped in 6. Took two days to receive so it shipped pretty fast. Overall I'm very pleased with my purchase. Want to say thanks to everyone at classic firearms, everyone was really nice and helpful. I will do business with you guys in the future.
great gun

I received my gun yesterday and I have to say I love it there nothing wrong with it and it just looks great I cant wait to time it to the range. I wanted to say thanks to classic firearms for great service and having great prices on there ak-47 I would do business with them again.
Best AK Trigger PERIOD
Review by AK shooter on 5/4/15
Quality
This is an awesome rifle, especially at the price. It has hands-down the best AK trigger I have ever felt (and I've pulled quite a few). It is a long but butter smooth pull. Plus, the rifle is made in the USA, so besides supporting American manufacturing, you don't have to worry about 922(r) compliance!

The integrated side scope mount is a great feature--it is a pain to try and put optics on a rifle without it.

The rifle is built to original AK specs (minus being full auto), so it does not have a last round bolt hold open. That's fine with me, but might be off-putting for others. However, it is incredibly reliable and pleasure to shoot.

Again, I can't comment enough about how great the trigger is!
IO INC AKM
Review by Alex on 4/16/15
Quality
was hesitant to pick up an IO, saw the black poly one at a local shop and looked straight. I wrote classic to ensure I got a good one. Sights are dead on straight, mag wobble is nearly non existent and rivets look ok. If you look at the product pictures on the listing for the black plastic furniture M247 where it says Made in USA, there's a little gap between the rivet head and receiver, mine has one like this too but still seems solid. Overall I'm pleased with the rifle I purchased and the great service of Classic Arms! I added a surplus grip, sling and mag to mine! Looks wicked awesome!
Better than expected
Review by Charles on 4/10/15
Quality
Ok it took forever to get the gun. No case, upper hand guard doesn't match rest of furniture. Got case today which is better than io case. Took to range witth io mag, tapco mag, and Korean 40 rounder. It was flawless. Love it! Butter smooth. Thanks classic for doing me right!
So far, so good
Review by Tom on 4/3/15
Quality
Picked up my M247-C yesterday from my FFL dealer. First thing he said was it's one of the nicest AK's he's ever seen. That was an instant relief for me as I was a bit nervous about purchasing a weapon from I.O. based on other internet reviews.
The only issue my dealer found was that the lower wood fore grip was scratched up some. Looks like it happened during shipping from Classic, due to one of the mags scrapping against it(we found small wood flakes on a corner of the mag and on the foam of the case). The mags were not wrapped, just loose. I called Classic before taking possession and was told to call I.O. since the rifle has a lifetime warranty.
I spoke with Jim at IO, he said they will send me out a new wood grip, even though it was not a warranty issue.
The weapon itself is very nice. All the rivets are flush and straight and the finish is very nice. I absolutely love the trigger-almost no take-up then a crisp break. I used Goo B Gone to remove the sticker residue from the stock-worked great.
Took 12 days from ordering to delivery-9 days at Classic, 3 days shipping
So far, so good
Review by Tom on 4/2/15
Quality
Picked up my new M247-C from my local FFL dealer today. Took about 12 days from order to delivery, took about 9 days to ship out from Classic and 3 days for UPS.
Right away my dealer said it was one of the nicest AK's he's seen. He did notice that the lower wood fore grip on the bottom was somewhat scratched up. It looks to have happened during shipping caused by the loose, unwrapped AK mags doing the damage(there was small flakes of wood sitting on the foam liner of the case. Before I took possession, I called Classic and they told me to call IO, since there is a lifetime warranty on the weapon they can deal with it. I spoke with Jim at IO, he said it really wasn't a warranty issue, but they would send me out a new fore grip.

As for the rest of the weapon. the wood grips and stock are very nice, the rivets on the receiver all are flush and seated properly. The trigger is awesome-almost zero take-up with a crisp break. Came with 1 black and 1 orange mag(the culpirt of the scratched fore grip)
I honestly was a bit nervous about buying an IO product based on they're earlier reputation, but so far I am extremely pleased with my purchase and my dealers comments about the quality of the weapon. To be clear the scratched wood was caused by Classic and not IO. IO ships there weapons wrapped in brown paper and a plastic bag, nether of which were with my M247.
Great gun

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.

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....
Review by bibic682 on 11/11/14
Quality
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

The only "problem" i have is one of the lips to close the case is broken so it doesn't stay closed in one spot, But that doesn't bother me. It still holds the rifle. The rifle looks and feels amazing! I was told that my rifle would ship 8-10 business days, but mine shipped in 6. Took two days to receive so it shipped pretty fast. Overall I'm very pleased with my purchase. Want to say thanks to everyone at classic firearms, everyone was really nice and helpful. I will do business with you guys in the future.

    Best AK Trigger PERIOD
    Review by AK shooter on 5/4/15

    This is an awesome rifle, especially at the price. It has hands-down the best AK trigger I have ever felt (and I've pulled quite a few). It is a long but butter smooth pull. Plus, the rifle is made in the USA, so besides supporting American manufacturing, you don't have to worry about 922(r) compliance!

    The integrated side scope mount is a great feature--it is a pain to try and put optics on a rifle without it.

    The rifle is built to original AK specs (minus being full auto), so it does not have a last round bolt hold open. That's fine with me, but might be off-putting for others. However, it is incredibly reliable and pleasure to shoot.

    Again, I can't comment enough about how great the trigger is!

    was hesitant to pick up an IO, saw the black poly one at a local shop and looked straight. I wrote classic to ensure I got a good one. Sights are dead on straight, mag wobble is nearly non existent and rivets look ok. If you look at the product pictures on the listing for the black plastic furniture M247 where it says Made in USA, there's a little gap between the rivet head and receiver, mine has one like this too but still seems solid. Overall I'm pleased with the rifle I purchased and the great service of Classic Arms! I added a surplus grip, sling and mag to mine! Looks wicked awesome!
    Better than expected

    Ok it took forever to get the gun. No case, upper hand guard doesn't match rest of furniture. Got case today which is better than io case. Took to range witth io mag, tapco mag, and Korean 40 rounder. It was flawless. Love it! Butter smooth. Thanks classic for doing me right!
    So far, so good

    Picked up my M247-C yesterday from my FFL dealer. First thing he said was it's one of the nicest AK's he's ever seen. That was an instant relief for me as I was a bit nervous about purchasing a weapon from I.O. based on other internet reviews.
    The only issue my dealer found was that the lower wood fore grip was scratched up some. Looks like it happened during shipping from Classic, due to one of the mags scrapping against it(we found small wood flakes on a corner of the mag and on the foam of the case). The mags were not wrapped, just loose. I called Classic before taking possession and was told to call I.O. since the rifle has a lifetime warranty.
    I spoke with Jim at IO, he said they will send me out a new wood grip, even though it was not a warranty issue.
    The weapon itself is very nice. All the rivets are flush and straight and the finish is very nice. I absolutely love the trigger-almost no take-up then a crisp break. I used Goo B Gone to remove the sticker residue from the stock-worked great.
    Took 12 days from ordering to delivery-9 days at Classic, 3 days shipping
    So far, so good

    Picked up my new M247-C from my local FFL dealer today. Took about 12 days from order to delivery, took about 9 days to ship out from Classic and 3 days for UPS.
    Right away my dealer said it was one of the nicest AK's he's seen. He did notice that the lower wood fore grip on the bottom was somewhat scratched up. It looks to have happened during shipping caused by the loose, unwrapped AK mags doing the damage(there was small flakes of wood sitting on the foam liner of the case. Before I took possession, I called Classic and they told me to call IO, since there is a lifetime warranty on the weapon they can deal with it. I spoke with Jim at IO, he said it really wasn't a warranty issue, but they would send me out a new fore grip.

    As for the rest of the weapon. the wood grips and stock are very nice, the rivets on the receiver all are flush and seated properly. The trigger is awesome-almost zero take-up with a crisp break. Came with 1 black and 1 orange mag(the culpirt of the scratched fore grip)
    I honestly was a bit nervous about buying an IO product based on they're earlier reputation, but so far I am extremely pleased with my purchase and my dealers comments about the quality of the weapon. To be clear the scratched wood was caused by Classic and not IO. IO ships there weapons wrapped in brown paper and a plastic bag, nether of which were with my M247.
    Great gun

    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

    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

    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

    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
