I may prefer the full Gold plated AK-47 rifles over the Chrome ones, but who can afford one of those? Chrome is a great alternative to the budget minded gun owner.
In terms of the Chrome options I have been really impressed with the hard chrome ones that Classic Arms was selling for awhile.
This particular one, and every other AK47 I have ever used, has a great cycling rate and never jams or fails regardless of the ammunition quality. If you ever have a feeding issue with your AK it’s most likely an issue with the magazine and not the rifle. It is not uncommon for you to get new mags that do not feed smoothly.
If your mags do not feed well you might want to cook them clean.
