Mine arrived awhile back, but just got home today from being away on a work project, so unboxed for a first looksee. All mags worked fine with BHO on all. The rifle itself is nice and solid, functioned fine with snap caps, and all seems as it should be. The folder locks up nice and tight, no wiggle, and no major dents or dings anywhere I can see. Bluing seems a bit thin, and the wood finish is pretty basic, but not unexpected for what this is. Needs a good cleaning then hope to get it out to the range to put it through it's paces in the next few days. So overall first impressions are very good and certainly happy with the purchase! The mismatched cheek piece will be replaced with a new set sent out gratis by vendor when next shipment arrives.







There's been a bit of a  frenzy on CGN over "bent rifles", and while there have been a couple posted there that seem a bit off, there's been some mass hysteria at work too...overactive OCD or whatever, mehhhh...mines fine.

Very nice Luke!  thumb1

Lots of us down south are envious of you guys!

How are the mags pinned?  Are they standard AK mags, or does the type 81 have a special magazine?  How hard is it to get additional magazines in .ca?

Thanks again for sharing!  thumb1

Thanks VERY happy to finally have this in hand after almost 2 years LOL! Mags are pinned with a very small, unobtrusive rivet - they're not standard AK version (different follower for the BHO, and different profile for cutouts) but people have already been modifying AK PMags to fit - no BHO but not a difficult job either it seems. These stock T81 mags are a bit scarce now with not all buyers getting their full order. More are on the way though, so hopefully soon in the New Year there'll be more of these in stock.

Very cool. I think the wood just looks like typical Chinese, par for the course.  thumb1

I'm itching to see the internals. I like seeing firearms with different mechanisms.

Looks nice!   

      
1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms... It doesn't matter how many Lenins you get out on the street begging for them to be taken.

I'll take pics when I strip it down for cleaning later  thumb1


Looks nice!

It's a standard Chinese product so as long as it goes bang reliably,which I'm sure it will, I'll be happy with the looks!  ;)

Very cool...I was wondering how many pages this would get to before you finally got it.  I don't hate you for it...I hate how close to the border I am.  It might as well be a different galaxy though.

First major winter storm of the season moving in, so no shooting for awhile, but did strip it down for a good cleaning and a few detail pics. It does come apart and go back together very easily:

Great set of pictures!  thumb1

In my opinion, it looks largely AK inspired, except for SKS inspiration on gas piston and handguard, bolt handle, and front sight. Gas block design inspiration perhaps from FN49 and Yugo SKS.

Almost looks more like a Vz58 gas system..with the open hand guard/no gas tube.




And keep that major winter storm confined north of the border... we don't want your sloppy seconds here in the mid atlantic, cause thats how it always works. chuckles1

Anybody pay any attention to that extractor cut perchance?
