Atlantic just posted up a new Riley option that looks interesting. I'd like some shots of the "custom" rear trunnion. Overall, it's nice to see some new options.

Default CG1

Also, while we're on the topic of new Riley offerings, check out this Polish build on an CG1 Childers receiver.

What am I missing? What does this product have to do with Riley Defense? Is Atlantic shipping parts to Riley to have them assemble the rifle for them?

It’s basically another CG1 offering, with a different furniture option. I’m assuming that the demand for the CG1 is high enough that Atlantic brought in a contractor to keep up with demand. Personally, this offering says a lot about Riley’s build quality. If Atlantic is willing to have them build for them, the attention to detail must be there.


EDIR: I noticed there's no side rail, which I actually like.


Atlantic, the listing says it has a side rail in the details list of the build, but the written description says there isn't one. The pictures clarify, but it looks like there is a crossover in details.

We had request for a basic WBP offering with no scope rail , No nickel plate and basic black poly stock . The Atlantic Arms build team is booked up on current builds and no desire to compromise the quality of builds . We are very comfortable with Rileys build quality so spoke with them about constructing this WBP Model for us .

Thanks for the clarification. Speaks highly of you to listen to costumers an what they wish for, as well as Riley's build quality since you trust them.

Riley still can't put the selector notch in the correct spot...

I am not sure what you are talking about since the Selector notches are installed by Childers Guns when they build the Polish receiver .

The selector notch on the Riley made guns, is in the middle of the receiver and not on the bottom where it should be, the MTAC has this problem as do their prior rifles on their receivers.

Does that mean that the safety selector would have been imprinted by manufacturer or by Riley? I looked at Moressey (sp) receivers for sale and what I could find, they did not have selector imprints on them.
I just checked my Riley and I do not even have a notch for 'S' at all. Have the letter 'S', just no notch. It still functions as should be, so I am not worrying though.

If you look at the top edge of the receiver, you'll see a little dimple where the nub of the selector lever sits in when in the safe position. My WASR, CG1, and Vepr all have them.

Also, I noticed the N-PAP also has the Fire notch higher up on the receiver than most other semi autos. It looks like the F notch is where the FA notch would be.

The Receivers that they use are Morrissey. I am personally not aware of all of the variations of them. I would venture a guess that it was not done by Riley as it is stamped and not engraved.
I rarely use that to stop the selector on mine. I drop it all the way down. the notch being where it is on a "shelf" receiver does not bug me. If it were a Polish variant or Bulgarian variant. I would be a bit more nit picky about the location and or lack of the Auto and Semi notch.

I was contemplating purchasing a classic does anyone have one? The forged bolt, front trunnion, and 4150 nitrided barrel, seem about right. Thoughts?

I think I've talked myself into getting one of the MFT rifles after Christmas. I miss AK's.

One of the WBP rifles might come during tax season too. That or a Dillon press.

I wanna get the Riley and beat on it pretty good to give evidence to it being a winner or loser personally as well. I might start dabbling in ballistic gel tests and such. Seems fun and it's pretty easy to order blocks anyway.

I picked up the polymer version but added surplus stock to it though. So far I am,loving it. Accurate as my DDI was. Only a couple hundred rounds through it though. I would buy another next time, just waiting to see what they come out with firdt.

Be looking for my videos on the polish barrel test very soon. As long as the tolerant weather is around for the next few weekends. We should be good to go. What a lot of people do not realize is that not only is this going to be a test of the barrel. It will be an additional 5000 rounds on the Tapco G2, Riley components, and the receiver that Riley uses. I will be conducting the review as if the barrel is not different and I will evaluate the barrel separate of the findings of the Riley, Tapco, and other components. The test will be done in a similar fashion to the previous 5000 rounds.
Thank you all for watching. Please subscribe so you can stay up to date with my channel. As always I do have live streams and you can come on and ask questions. Many of you are already there.

Hi everyone-

This is my first post here, and I made an account (over a week+ ago, just validated) specifically to post on this thread/regarding this topic. I am not an AK expert, nor am I an overall firearms expert... However, I do have a considerable collection of firearms and a decent amount of experience with both firearms and shooting. I do not purport to be an expert, nor do I care to debate the "experts" here (or elsewhere) on this topic.

After that preamble- I am extremely happy with the Riley Defense MFT I purchased at the beginning of this month. I knew what I was buying, and I wanted this particular rifle because it appealed to me, I believed it was an excellent deal and the perfect combination of what I want & value-for-dollar. I did my research and frankly have always done my research. I actually own one of the original Zastava PAPs from 2010. If you recalll correctly, to the best of my knowledge the Zastava PAP was actually designed to be a line of rifles to be sold in the compliant-restricted states of the country. Having lived in NJ for almost my entire life, it was custom-made to be sold in NJ (a single-stack only firearm with 10rd magazines (although NJ allows 15), a thumbhole stock that doesn't count as a pistol-grip (didn't at the time, although who knows if that has been modified now.) and no military-style feature at the muzzle. I actually saw a beautiful wooden version being sold at my LGS in early 2010 and said, "I WANT ONE OF THOSE!" -- I was told, "He just got our last one, but we have another order coming in soon, the shipping container is on the way, I can put you down for one." -- when I got the call to pick it up, it was the polymer version. I basically was told, "Listen, we were expecting the wooden models, and we got these. The entire shipment is polymer. The distributor rep was also a little peeved but was told, " No more wooden models ... ever." So, I mean, I took it anyway, and have had ever since. Excellent rifle. Really does feel like it's built like the proverbial tank, and having said that, the action is *very* smooth. (Once the PAP series became known, of course, Zastava realized they could do a lot better by selling their M70 series rifles as PAPs across the country, albeit without the restrictedness.)


Now moving right along. I have moved to FL, bought a lot of property, built my S&P dream house, and decided to buy myself a new AK as a NYD present. Now I would love an Arsenal SAM7SF. But they're $1,450 and the Riley Defense is $600. Are they the same? No, I understand that the Arsenal is considered a semi-custom and top-notch quality. Well, I feel like Riley Defense has given me every dime worth of the money I spent.

I am not going to beat it down with a torture test; to be frank, I think it's stupid to purposely try to ruin your gear just to see if it will or will not break (I am also into metallurgy and collect some medieval weapons. People love to show off they buy custom $500-$2500 Albion swords, then put them into a vice and photograph themselves torquing their new swords as far as they can to show the "quality" of the steel and tempering. Have fun with that. And what happens when it breaks? You complain, "Hey Albion! I bought your $1000 sword, and tried to break it, and it broke! What if I was a medieval knight! I could have died!...." I call that stupidly stupid.) ... and I don't really care to get into a debate about how I don't know what I'm talking about because real AKs are built for abuse ETC. Please, abuse your stuff all you want. I simply cannot accept the logical fallacy that I see here often written "You need to accept your stuff is a POS because I/we have said so and you know we are the experts because we have likewise said so." Sure enough, no problems, chief.


So far I have had nothing but success with my RD AK, albeit I have not purposely tried to break it. Seems to shoot just fine with a ridiculous amount of accuracy. I have a range built into my back property and I scattered all the scrap pieces of travertine, porcelain, and ceramic tile from my house build. I have literally been point-and-shooting these pieces from 25yds+ and watching stone explosions throw shrapnel all over the place. Not a single failure albeit it's only been a few hundred rounds. If I had to complain, it would be the fact that the cheap ROK magazines I bought with it are *extremely* tight - to the point of not being usable since it takes so much effort to get them in and out. I believe fully this is a MAGAZINE issue, not a rifle issue.


Further I am very happy with the MFT's included accessories... I have a Magpul AFG on the bottom of the quad rail, XTM panels on the sides, and an extra Aimpoint Micro I had lying around mounted on the top and I have had very nice results with it. Combined with a sling attached to the MFT stock and I have a very nice rig for a very fair price.


I realize a lot of people here will not like them, I just don't care. I believe in giving credit where credit is due and so far, so great. If something breaks down I will duly amend my review but so far I am very happy and highly recommend Riley Defense. In ending, I will note, just about every single last review of people who ACTUALLY OWN ONE love them. The only negative reviews I have seen are by people who, of course, have not even touched one. Just pointing out.

Yeah, you tell 'em tAKticool! I have three Rileys: classic, poly, and red wood. Of course, unlike you, I have yet to shoot mine. It is nice to read a post that is not all doom and gloom.

If I had to complain, it would be the fact that the cheap ROK magazines I bought with it are *extremely* tight - to the point of not being usable since it takes so much effort to get them in and out. I believe fully this is a MAGAZINE issue, not a rifle issue.


Further I am very happy with the MFT's included accessories... I have a Magpul AFG on the bottom of the quad rail, XTM panels on the sides, and an extra Aimpoint Micro I had lying around mounted on the top and I have had very nice results with it. Combined with a sling attached to the MFT stock and I have a very nice rig for a very fair price.


I realize a lot of people here will not like them, I just don't care. I believe in giving credit where credit is due and so far, so great. If something breaks down I will duly amend my review but so far I am very happy and highly recommend Riley Defense. In ending, I will note, just about every single last review of people who ACTUALLY OWN ONE love them. The only negative reviews I have seen are by people who, of course, have not even touched one. Just pointing out.


This is what every US MADE AK OWNER will tell you...

I still have mine and look forward to getting her out and shooting it. I was pleased last I took her out. I do not get to shoot much anymore.

I just ordered another WASR today. Was wanting to buy a Riley for a while but Robski's recent videos on Riley caused me to not do it. I hope Riley can fix the problems. They seem like a company who responds to the ak community and want to do the right thing.
