I have just found out that Inter-Ordnance Inc. is an NC company with manufacturing instate. I.O. makes AK style rifles, a .380 pistol and two other AK style pistols. They also offer some accessories. If anybody has any experience with these products, I would love to hear about it.
Meanwhile, Gunblast has a review of a couple Aks and the .380. I like this guy’s beard!
