I was just thinking about this thread. Still waiting on the big announcement.
I guess it was just Fillers way of giving us all one last big FU before his descent into AK obscurity.

Does it matter much at this point, though? I was thinking about what his bomb would have to be in order to be good enough to bring him back to relevancy here. I mean, he could announce that DDI has fixed all issues with their U.S. made rifles and that they are going to become importers of combloc rifles and sell `em for $450/ea. and he would still be the butt of so many jokes around here.

I get a bit bummed when I think about the story of DDI. Things appeared to be so promising there for a while but when things started going downhill they did so very quickly.

No bomb yet ? Reminds me of the guy we watched from our FOB trying to set an IED and it went kaboom.

I put over 1,000rnds through my last C39V2 and the finish was not worn on the receiver rails at all. It still looked brand new. It was much smoother and more accurate than my other AK's. It had zero parts that have been known to have a reputation for weakness.

Bottom line, I paid $749 for the rifle. I sold the BCG for $125 I believe ($65 for carrier and $60 for the bolt). I bought an unissued Bulgarian BCG in the market place here for $100. I sold the Walnut furniuture for the same price I paid for the Magpul MOE stuff. This rifle had ~$725 in it roughly.

While in the minority here, I believe it was a helluva good value for a milled gun.

I just want that dinner-plate

I don't have any real info.
I know that after the sale/ merger that parts were being made .
If they stopped or are still developing a non 7.62x39 I have no clue.

I wish DDI had not failed or got sold. They had some big plans and cool stuff in the works.

For all I / we know PSA is developing a 5.45 and a 7.62x54r and not saying shit.
I find it hard to believe they spent money just to put DDI out of business.
I also don't think DDI sold out in one week and shut down .
A merger or sale like that takes months to happen.

I'd like to know we're the equipment and tooling went to make the hammer forged parts and every thing else they made.

The guns were close to being very good . Perhaps more testing and quality checks should have happened.
Having a product before the election might have been a bad decision.
A few tweaks to things like extractors and muzzel attachment and how they tightened and the guns were not bad.

Is it the 100% American made AK that DDI put out before they shut the doors, or is it one of the Hungarian kits that were built when Troy was there?

It's the American made model Robski had two broken extractors with. It has the combined front sight post/gas block. It's light weight and balanced.
I have a little less then 3000 rounds through it and the bolt and carrier are holding up just fine.....no "eating itself". Finish is still like new with no rivet problems. Not one misfire.

No, I wouldn't go to war with this rifle when I have SAMs and VEPRs available to me but it's still a fun rifle to shoot. Bought it last November using Atlantic.

Yes, Fillers turned out to be a dick but Sellers was a cool guy and I think Troy was mostly responsible for getting these rifles built and out the door.

I bought a Hungarian DDI kit build back in December 2015, not sure IF im going to keep it or not. I want a Arsenal SLR106, suppose i could have a FB Radom barrel installed into my DDI and keep it lol.
