I picked up one of the new No. 1-A's in 7.62X39. Very nice little rifle in a great chambering. I mounted a Leupold 1-4X scope in double offset rings for testing. After a barrel break-in the first groups with Winchester factory white-box were running a little over 2" @ 100 yds. But when I fed the 1-A my hand load using the Hornady 123 grain .310 dia bullets over H322 it started to sing a lovely song. Groups almost as well as my M77 compact in the same caliber with the same load. Five shots touching each other. After 5 shots it started to open up a bit unless I let it cool. I am sure this is due to the way the forearm is mounted. Overall very well pleased. I am going to enjoy this one, very pleasant to shoot with a nice trigger right out of the box. If your LGS happens to get one of these, be sure to check it out..............Or if you know you really want one get your LGS to order one before they are gone. I believe there will be 300 in the series.
