I've been wanting one of these for years. Finally ordered a Vepr 7.62 x 39. They're not lying when they say this is the finest AK in production. Fit and finish is impeccable and the action cycles smoother than a dancer's privates. And that's without being cleaned and greased properly yet. The owner's manual tells you not to store food in the oiled paper after unwrapping the rifle, which I think is a thoughtful touch. I included a picture of the bolt and the forearm stippling to show the attention to detail and quality of workmanship. Now if I can ever get out to the range, I've got a couple of reports to file. Sorry for multiple pic posts, iPad limitations...
