Default OMG this guy filmed IO Inc booth at SHOT show 2017!!



that little weirdo decided hide his face this time. you can't get more sketchy than their marketing team. why doesn't the atf just shut that place down? how can you sell stuff that can cause severe injury/death while they knowingly are using wrong manufacturing methods.

The Turkish shotguns might have some potential. The Saiga-12 clone could be nice.

That little revolver is kindof badass....

Hoping its made well enough to contain the awesome power and force of a 22 round. If its cheap enough I'd pick one up, maybe.

You know your product is legit when your Sales Rep refuses to be filmed discussing it's merits.

Hahah, that's because he knows hes gonna have to find another job in the gun industry later.
He probably saw what happened with that Century Arms rep Jacob after their American made stamped AK line flopped. He talked so much shit about how good they where and they turned out to be one of the biggest pos AKs ever produced. Anytime you see that dude in a video since that subject still comes up. Stick a fork in him. Cautionary tale.

I hate to say this but if you talk to MrGnG and Rob even they will tell you that they're still selling those rifles in
the 10's of thousands to big box stores. For my own personal experience, I did own one, and it was very nice but
after AKOU's results, it was obvious.....I sold it. But all Cabela's, Bass Pro, Gander, etc carry Century's rifles......still today

In fact, MrGnG also stated his LGS in North Carolina sells I/O 10 to 1 of any other AK variant. (skerry, I know)
That in of itself is indicative of how many uninformed buyers there are on the market that simply are not members of
this forum to learn from AKOU's test results. It's a sad state of affairs how much garbage this industry will shove to
people to buy that is lessor grade commercial quality.

Only buyers can unite to force manufacturers to PROVE their legitimacy before buying them.

As Rob has stated, Century's marketing Dept is brilliant, and can overcome most negative reviews with more paid shilling.
Figure probably less then 1% of the AK shooting population is on this forum, and I'd day say a smaller fraction then that.

The number one or two (depending how you look at it) reason they sell.....is Mother F*ckers are cheap ass'

People will buy the $500 Ak all day long over an $850+ one just because of ignorance.

Note: unless the $500 rifle is a WASR. Then good job and please let us know where to get the $500 WASR's

Like Mel said, people DGAF about quality, they just want cheap. Look at the proliferation of Harbor Freight and Dollar Tree stores.

Well, on the one hand, both of these places have excellent deals - if you know what you're looking at. Sadly, looking at the offerings of InterOrdance . .






If you're in the Dollar Tree and not playing a mental game of "Hi-Lo", you're gonna get screwed quick, though . . .

( "Does this cost more than a dollar at other stores?" If "yes", then it's a deal. If "no", it's a rip-off )

Yes nails, I realize that not everything in those places is garbage. In fact, some of the toolboxes they sell look to be nearly Snap-On quality at about 30% of the price.

I was just thinking of some guys I know who give me shit about driving Japanese cars, yet every tool in their shop is HF junk, and just about everything else they own is the cheapest of cheap shit. They're the kind of guys who buy IO junk because it's $100 less than a WASR and it's "Made in USA!"

Luckily, they're too cheap to shoot more than 100 rounds in a year, so there is little danger of wearing one out and having it blow up in their face.

I've always thought IO AKs were ugly as fuck.. Sorry for the language folks but I could not even star that word out. They are ugly as fuck.
Just the combination of furniture and finish on their AKs. Yuck

They fixed their trunnions? I don't understand how you could need to fix a trunnion, if they fucked up trunnions how can they be making their own barrels too? Tuned their gas system? How the fuck do you tune a gas system on an AK, smaller/bigger gas hole?

Don't knock Harbor Freight.

They have ALOT of highly useful budget minded tools there for the casual handyman, but also alot of chinese crap.
My 20 ton press is awesome for $170, vacuum brake bleeder, super duty hammer drill, I think half my car specialty tools from there. .
I can't walk in that place without buying a ton of stuff. LoL

Hell even their Pittsburgh line of hand tools has improved dramatically in the past 5 years.
Every US big box store has shifted their hand tools, and power tools production overseas.
I had all Lowe's Kobalt hand tools when they were US made up until 2011.

My favorite hand tool set is actually the Dewalt 200 piece I picked up @ Blain's Farm and Fleet.
Very impressed so far, and I've had many different hand tool sets.
