EDIT; Synthetic is sold out, but standard stock is still available at same price

There's another thread with the Cabela's Ruger AR15 deal. In looking around the website, I see that the synthetic and wood stock Century Arms RAS47 AK clones are also on sale, with an additional 10% by applying code 16STALKUP. Regular suggested retail is $799 for this model - with the sale, it's the same price as the wood-stock model, both are on sale for $649 before discount.

Century Arms RAS47 Synthetic Rifle

Stamped 4140 nitride-treated steel receiver
MOE AK stock, pistol grip and handguard

Century Arms' RAS47 Synthetic Rifle features a chrome-moly 4150 nitride-treated barrel, which boasts a 1:10 rate-of-twist rifling as well as concentric LH 14x1 metric threading. 1/16" stamped 4140 nitride-treated steel receiver for long-lasting performance. Also features RAK-1 enhanced trigger group as well as Magpul(R) equipment MOE AK stock, pistol grip and handguard. Standard AKM sights. Bolt hold-open notch on the safety selector. Heat-treated bolt carrier tail. Compatible with AKM furniture. Includes one 30-round Magpul magazine. Made in USA.
I am aware Century had a bad go-round years back, but quality seems to be much improved the last couple years, and this (I feel) is a great price for a standard, shooter-quality AK. Most reviews I've found have also been very favorable.

As these are two separate platforms/calibers, and with there often being separate fans of each platform, I felt this should have it's own thread. Props to the OP of the other thread, as I wouldn't have seen this deal if it hadn't been posted.

Aren't these Chinese made? If so, what makes you say the quality seems to have gotten better? I have heard nothing but bad things about Chinese AK's. Additionally, at this price point you could get other (IMO) better AK's.

Tax stinks, but this is a fantastic price on this rifle. Lots of good reviews on it, with the exception of the 5000 round test by AK operators, where it busted the wood stock, and loosened up some rivets, and broke the front sight, but that was 5000 rounds in a very short time.

Ummmm, polytech AKs are highly regarded and some of the most sought after by collectors?

Chinese AK's are surprisingly good and generallynot available anymore. American AK's have a bad reputation at the moment.

Nope, made in the USA.

Century made stuff is garbage. Pick up a WASR10 or NPAP for the same price. You know, something that has been proven reliable for 60 years. If you can afford it, get an Arsenal. I just bought a SAM7R.

From the order page:

Please enter the ZIP code of your residence and select which Cabela's store you'd like to pick up your firearm(s) from.


Please note: All items in your order must go to the same Cabela's store. Handguns can only be picked up at a Cabela's store in your state of residence.


It appears you can only pick it up in Cabelas stores

Bring back the $250 wasr10s and $100 for 1000 of 7.62x39. Don't know much about Century quality going up at all but I love the AK for the reliability, simple construction and cleaning.
