I’m in for a 7.62x39 semi auto rifle and given CZ’s silence on any ETA with regard to the 807 I have narrowed it down to a Puritan (does POF even still make 'em?), C39V2 and a milled DDI DIY (if they ever release them).
The way I see it for now is retaining AR-15 manual of arms is very appealing to me but magazines suck. The C39V2 sounds interesting yet I’m still not convinced in the accuracy realm. DDI sounds interesting, However, they seem to be going downhill and their latest poduct turned out to be a lemon with extractors breaking and QC issues. The forged AK doesn’t seem to work out well. C39V2 seems to be a reliable build but isn’t as accurate as any of DDI’s offerings. DDI uses a better finish and the build is tighter.
Sell me on either one of these or steer me away from them altogether. Please stick to these 3. I’m not interested in Bulgarian Asenal variants, Galil ACE, Vepr etc due to various reasons (furniture-finicky, too proprietary, too much of a hassle) or lower end/middle of the road AKs. Thanks
