How many rounds do you have through it by chance? I"m asking because I've seen about a half dozen or more youtube channels where after 3-5K rounds they all have damage on their front trunions and bolts. Many of them have incorrect head spacing after that many rounds as well, whereas it was fine before.
I'd avoid any of the American AKs at the moment. None of them are as good as a WASR.
As for milled vs stamped, that is a personal preference really. If they are built properly they function just as well as each other. The milled will be a little heavier, some say it's more accurate but I've not really seen anything that really proves that to me.
FWIW, Atlantic Firearm's builds are amazing quality. I'd say for your first AK, get one of their 700-800 dollar builds or a WASR. AK Files is a great website for all things AK. Tons of reading material over there specific to the AK.
