Default 104ur warranty out soon, anything I should claim?

Okay last thread was deleted because I assume I linked way too big images. Anyways. The right ear on the hinge seems slightly bent, as well as the safety lever rivet has some sort of ding. Other than that it seems fine. No canted sights or anything. Receiver gap seems fine? This is only the second AK i've owned, and the first factory and 74 variant. Warranty ends this month so idk if it's worth having these things corrected before I have it refinished. Imgur flipped the images for some reason.

I really don't see anything wrong with it... Is this a FACTORY SBR?

yeah. like I said I'm not sure what's normal and what isn't with arsenal AKs. the right leaf on the top cover hinge fuckin bugs me though. but since it's a $2100 AK, i figure i'd get a second opinion...

War criminal, that's a nice rifle. It's a factory commie so attn to detail is/was not their thing. If it runs shoot it.

I really can't tell if it's bent in the photo. It looks fine to me. If it really bugs you, you can always try to straighten it when you remove the top cover before re-paint.

I'll be re-painting (cerakote) my SLR107UR SBR as well as redoing the light roll markings.

yeah it's definitely bent but imgur flipped it. I'll try uploading the original later after resizing. I mean it shoots straight though. if i were to try to straighten it I feel like that'd make it weaker/worse. Whatever. It's an AK. No complaints really, just want to get my moneys worth. Never thought I'd even own an aks74u variant in my life.

Highly doubt arsenal would do anything besides say it's fine. You'll just end up paying shipping and being without a rifle for a few months.

$2100 just sounds about right.. That's how much I paid "including the Tax Stamp" for the factory SLR107UR SBR from K-VAR. I had no other options but to buy a factory SBR during that time. WA State did not allow residence to file a Form 1. Now we can. Thank God!!

the dust cover ear is bent.... is it big deal .. no, can u fix it .. yes.. smack it with a rubber mallet or a hammer and a peace of wood... or send kvar pics and have them replace the dust cover.. if it were me I would just keep it and fix or leave it alone.. wouldn't send back to kvar.. this is the reason why I didn't buy one of these commercial krinks... just because its a factory krink doesn't mean the quality is any better then my Russian tula parts kit built on a morressy with bulgy krink barrel... the 107fr's are falling apart.. go figure commercial ak.. anyways good luck..I gave u my 2 cents
