Good question. I’m guessing jbi Armory didn’t do that.

How did they get those front rivets so close? And why is the middle of the receiver bent like that? Damn, someone bought that!

Was wondering the same, looks like the bottom 1/8" or so was taken off the sides for some reason. I was trying to figure out how it was sitting up so high, but noticed that it's longer in the rear like it should be.

I scrolled through the pics 3 times. Every time i scrolled through them something else that was awful stuck out. "Custom scope mount provides excellent cheek weld". Then I saw what it sold for. SMH

I inquired about that rifle because I'm in the market for a 5.45 and it was so cheap a couple days ago, IIRC, ~230 at the time. I'm as green as green gets in regards to AK's but this rifle looked so strange to me. Seller told me it was a custom JBI build and that he has the paperwork. JBI has a good reputation but this thing was just too odd so I didn't bid on it. Based on all of your responses, I guess that was a good thing.

I would of asked for a receipt copy or something. I highly doubt JBI (or any reputable AKsmith) would le that abomination out the door with their name behind it

Winning bidder got a real gem here. You can use the barrel to grill sausages, marshmallow, use as tent peg, fire poker, bear poker. So jealous right now.

Undeniably, the worst looking AK I've ever seen! Absolutely no appeal at all.

So besides unregular rivets, bent charging handle and missing fsb... What is wrong with it? What makes it nonfunctional, or not as long lasting/reliable?
Anything besides the old and annoying "Nyet, The rifle is fine!" concept?
I see a lot of repeating words here with very little meaning behind them.
