Here’s another setback for the reputation of the I.O. Inc AK-47s, the folks over at AK Operators Union had a lot of bad luck with theirs so have many owners on various forums. Well a Redditor who made the mistake of buying an I.O. Inc AK-47 posted their experience, their brand spanking new AK suffered from a cracked gas block after just ten rounds. Stick to Yugos, WASRs, Arsenal or Russian AKs people. Or Chinese or Egyptian if you can find them.
I bought this I.O. Inc. AK47 a few weeks ago. Shot it for the first time today and less than 10 rounds in, this happens. The gas block cracked and it doesn’t cycle anymore. I.O. Inc. products are garbage! I thought I was buying a lower tier AK47 that might not be quite as high quality as the more expensive ones. I was wrong, I literally bought trash. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Please avoid this company and their product. Does anyone know what I should do at this point? Is there any chance either the gun shop or manufacturer will give me a refund?
