No offense but why did you buy the rifle with little or no knowledge of what you were buying? The STG 2000 is basically a Romanian WASR with a stock that makes it resemble the East German Wieger STG-940 rifle. The STG-2000-C is in caliber 7.62x39 and the STG-2003-C in caliber 5.56x45.
Its quality is basically like a WASR, maybe a bit better on average and you can certainly fix any sight related issues. At what distance is it shooting 2' low. Is the front sight canted (leaning to one side). This is a fairly common issue with rifles from the Romanian Cugir Arsenal
. My STG 2000 shoots on par with my other AK's and the Wieger type stock adds a different twist/look to the AK platform and because of the added lenght of pull this stock provides shooting the rifles is rewarding and easy.
