Not to hijack the thread as the OP was asking about Legion. Legion is certainly gtg. All those things mentioned about the James River AKM are true, but the price and the no waiting is appealing. The waiting is the hardest part, oh and the cost. It's going to cost at least $600 more (figuring a polish barrel and 74u recvr) and 23 months just to get a correct receiver. Ugh... Not sure about the big star logo. I don't see one in the pics. That would be a deal breaker for me. Like the Eagle logo on the old what's their names T3 recvrs. No thanks.
A Polish barrel, blank, and some DIY is what I'm doing. I'd go with one of Legion's offerings if I didn't, but I enjoy the excitement of a build.
