Century Arms AK-47... Worth $500?

EDIT: I meant to say $400 in the title.

Hey everyone.

I'm looking at picking up a Century Arms Ak-47 (WASR-10) of Romanian build. It's just a typical AK-47... wood furniture, non folding butt-stock. Sights looked good and very little magazine wobble with a steel mag and zero wobble with plastic mag.

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with them or if anyone had any input on their quality. I know they defiantely aren't the best, but I'm not looking for the best. I just want a fun AK that I can go shoot and tinker with/on.

Asking price of shop: $399

Comes with:
- Bayonet w/ sheath
- 2 Tapco Magazines
- Leather Sling
- Green Mag Pouch Bag Thing
- Tin Oil Container Thing

*Not the one I'm looking at but exactly the same

Century is pretty terrible. IMO it's overpriced, but if you can't find better it'll do.

I've heard a lot of things about century improving over the years.

I too almost bought a Century AK, but I didn't pull the trigger at the time. I guess I figured that I could spend an additional 2-300 bucks and get a really high quality version and not kick myself for buying the cheapo version

I actually had a chance to buy a Class III FA version a few weeks later, but it was $15000...

I have one that I bought 4 years ago for $285
Honestly it hasn't failed me yet, I shot the crap out of it and worked great. I changed the stock to a dragunov style synthetic stock
