    According to the Atlantic page, DDI has milled and stamped AK offerings. The milled rifle is listed as having a chrome lined barrel, while the stamped version has a “fenocited” barrel, bolt and a few other components (similar to nitrided). The version described in the above is one of the stamped, non-chrome lined rifles.

      Same here. I have the same exact model as shown in the video. Had it for a few months now and enjoy shooting it more than my ARs. I had one issue with it right after I rec’d it. It would occasionally bump fire 2 rounds instead of one. Talked to the factory about it; they sent me a new Tapco trigger group with an understanding that I send the old one back. I replaced the trigger group and have had zero issues with it. The guys at DDI and the weapon are G2G!

    It’s called FNC, ferritic nitrocarburization…

    At :38 either it’s the camera angle or that’s the worst barrel whip I’ve ever seen on an AK.
