    Default I.O. Inc AK's

    STAY as FAR away from them as you can, I just picked up the Hellhound AK they sent me as a replacement for the AK-74 they condemned, and guess what?! This one broke too, first off when I got it there was a ton of dirt in the rifle, I will put up some pics in a bit. So I cleaned it up and checked over the rifle before taking it to the range today, it looked to be in ok shape after cleaning it up.

    I plugged in a mag and began firing, round number 4 or 5 everything freezes up and the handle wont charge. I pull back a little harder and the dust cover pops off!! WTF? So i start looking at it closer and the firing pin had some how come out of the bolt and up through the recoil spring and jammed itself between the receiver and the dust cover, had those not been there I am pretty sure I would have either been stabbed in the face or lost my eye. Oh and there is no way that the firing pin should have come out since the roll pin is still in place and the firing pin will not fit back into it's place.

    This is effing ridiculous, so I have emailed them telling them I want my money back and they can keep their damn rifle. We shall see what they say.

    The outside of it looks great and the rivets were great too, it just looks like they had thrown it in dirt and only cleaned the outside before storing it.

    That sucks pretty bad. Would you be willing to pony up for an Arsenal AK? I knwo they are expensive but they are well liked and for good reason. I'd consider them the BCM of AK's.

    I've heard of some complaints from others on I.O. rifles.

    I had heard of issues too but gave them the benefit of the doubt, apparently the complaints are true.

    What still baffles me is the fact that the pin for the firing pin is still in place and isn't broken. How the heck did the pin get out?

    So here is a good question for you AK guys, if I put another Bolt and Firing Pin into this AK would any of you be weary of firing it?

    I am just assuming at this point that they installed the pin wrong at the factory.

    I wouldn't do anything else to that weapon but get rid of it.

    If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything; really helps when you get old.

    Well I am still waiting on a response from the company, I'm sure they had multiple pissed off customer emails from the weekend. Problem is if the decide to replace/repair this one I have no clue where I could sell it and get the amount that I am into it for after paying for shipping 2x already and the cost of the rifle.

    Are you wishing you would have kept your AR?

    Not really, I do however wish that I hadn't given this company the benefit of the doubt despite reviews I had seen online. I have already talked with 2 Vets Arms Co. about buying 3 or 4 of their Spartan AR lowers when they have them made so I will have a couple AR projects in my future anyways.

    My AMD-65 is a beast and costs so much less than this IO Rifle, should have just bought another one of them instead....
