I picked up a new M70 a few weeks ago from Atlantic firearms, they shipped it very quickly and I had within a few days. I got the one with the polymer adjustable stock, I would of rather had wood but this polymer is really working nicely for me. Anyway I only put 30 rounds through it after initial cleaning and lube and the rifle shot and functioned great, I have a 3-9 scope mounted and I just basically wanted to sight it in. I have other AK's that I shoot often but this new M70 has less recoil and I really like the way it shoots, don't know if it's the polymer adjustable stock or what, but it's a joy to shoot. I took a mini 30 (7.62x39) along with and the M70 has 1/3 less recoil than the mini. I only sighted in at 25 yards as there is a foot of snow on the ground, it took about 10 rounds to get it zeroed. Next time I'll take it out to 100 yards and further and see how it does. I only had Tula ammo today for function testing, next time I'll bring a few varieties to test out but so far so good.
