Centurion 39 Sporter Rifle (100% American Made)
Century Arms Inc. is producing their own AK type rifle called the Centurion 39 Sporter Rifle. This rifle is made of 100% American made parts. The rifle has a milled receiver, a proprietary V shaped Chevron Compensator, designed exclusively by Century and has Picatinny rails on the hand guards for mounting optics. I know that the milled receiver is a huge plus in the book of a lot of AK fans. I also know that there are a lot of mixed feeling about the quality of workmanship coming from Century over the years. I've owned two C.A.I. Yugo AK type rifles (M70 and M72). The construction of both them was fantastic and they function without any issues to date. So, I'm willing to give the new Centurion 39 Sporter Rifle a try. I'd like to see what the MSRP will be for these rifles. Maybe Century will send me a sample so I can spread the good word. Nah, I don't think so.
