Okay overall
Two issues

1- lower handguard retainer is loose. Causes a lot of slop in when firing.
2- Wood stock doesn't sit flush with the rear of the reciever but does with the puzzle piece in the rear.

other than that it fires for $539 for the barrelled receiver and build kit I guess I can't complain. No blem unless you consider poor assembly a blem.

Nice with the MOE kit. Took 20 minutes to put together. The only blem I found was in the serial# on the receiver put on twice and one was ground out. Decent 3" group but its a AK not a sniper rifle. Very nice to see American made. Would recommend to friends and would purchase again. The design has very nice features and breaks down easily.

good product....couldn't find a blemish. I would recommend this kit.
I purchased one of these kits as a way to build an inexpensive AKM type rifle. Kit is well made and finished. There might be a small blemish somewhere but I didn't notice it.

I used a PSA basic plastic stock kit for the build.

The assembly was easy. The You Tube video by PSA is very clear and concise. After watching this video anyone who can handle a few simple hand tools could build this rifle with success. Be sure to buy some magazines as there is not one included in the kit. I added a cleaning rod butt stock cleaning kit and sling to my build. Not that these items are necessary but they are not included with the basic kit which helps keep cost down.

The only issues I had with the kit were the front sight detent plunger spring was bent not allowing the plunger to stay out under spring tension. It was an easy enough fix...I just drifted the front sight detent pin retaining pin out and replaced the spring. A minor annoyance that a quick QC check should have caught as someone installed the slant brake on the barreled receiver before shipping. I found the lose pin after I went to replace the slant brake with an AK-74 type (30 cal) brake I had left over from another project.

As some other reviewers have said the safety lever was a little loose. It is very easy to adjust the tension by a little careful bending to get the proper tension. I don't consider this a defect as it is a preference as to how much tension one would want on this part. Some are overly concerned about the safety lever leaving a scratch ( I call it a track mark) on the receiver. BTW almost all AKM's/AK 74's seem to have this mark.

Overall I am very satisfied with the quality of this kit. It is a great deal on a high quality rifle that you can save some money on by assembling it yourself.

I have not shot this rifle but I see no reason to expect anything but a great shooting rifle. There are several You Tube videos of people shooting this rifle with great success.

For the money I have yet to find a better AK
What a great AK rifle! I purchased this barreled action on a whim as I was curious how an American AK would compare to others. To assemble the rifle I also purchased one of the PSA AK build kits ALG Defense Enhanced Trigger and a Midwest Industries Gen 2 M-Lok handguard. After some cerakoting it went together easy following PSA's instructional video. The rifle looks awesome shoots great (3-4 MOA at 100 yards) and seems to be the very best value in the AK market.

meh not regretting it
So upon receiving the barreled receiver I was surprised to see the blemishes was a very small scuff on the receiver I got this to built a "sleeper" style ak and was pretty pleased overall. However I immediately noticed a crazy amount of slop in the muzzle detent spring and the rear sight leaf. I replaced the rear sight leaf spring and that seemed to fix the issue there. I was disappointed to see that but I digress. As for the muzzle detent when I finally built it and put 200 rounds through it it almost snapped the detent off and beat the crap out of my muzzle break. It was so bent that I had to cut it to get the brake off. After that I noticed the detent spring was jammed inside the hole. I modified an AR crush washer to fit the thread and fixed the muzzle to it that way. I have ordered a different detent and spring just in case but I feel like this is something that should have been caught in QA along with the rear sight spring. That being said not one issue on the range. I installed the classic polymer build kit with the ALG trigger group. It was a very snug fit on everything but after a little break in it smoothed out just fine. Haven't adjusted the sights yet but seems to be fairly accurate from standing and combat effective out of the box. I would buy this again I would just be prepared to do a little work.

Had a couple issues but great overall
I picked up my barreled receiver on Friday 4/14/2017 and rushed it home to assemble my build kit. I went with the plain $99 build kit and only spent $469 overall for a functional rifle. Everything went on well except the gas tube. To remove it I had to pry it off with the thickest screw driver I had and use excessive force with a mallet for it to go back on. This is not normal on the ak platform as I have owned and currently own several combloc variants. To fix the gas block issue I voided the warranty and used a metal file to file down various parts of the gas block until it properly fit. Keep in mind all the serial numbers matched (bolt carrier gas block receiver). I also ran into an issue with the braided trigger spring being too long on one side. I bent it with a pair of pliers and went ahead and ordered a spring online. The lower handguard retainer switch is also extremely hard to operate to remove/install the lower handguard. I did some file and polish work and I am able to work it by smacking it closed with a metal magazine. Now that I am able to fully disassemble the rifle by hand and with a little help from the cleaning kit and magazine I am happy with it. I took it out to sight it in yesterday 4/17/2017. I ran 200 rounds through it and it functioned flawlessly. I sighted it in quickly and it held tight groups even impressing me. I used tapco orange smoothside magpul and East German magazines all of them fit with a slit wobble which is perfect for an ak and are designed to do so. My rifle was signed off with the intials "AR". "AR" if you read this please keep an eye on gas block and lower handguard retainer switch fitting. I know these are blem but if I were new to the ak platform this would have been a horrible experience. All in all I am satisfied and the rifle has become my new favorite toy. I will defiantly be ordering from PSA again. I've built two PSA AR15s and they are top notch! I look forward to a PSAK 74!
