The magazine release is standard size; the RAS47’s was much larger. Neither of the PSA rifles had a bolt-hold-open notch in the safety selector. The selector on the Classic Red began to scratch the receiver after extensive use.
The PK-01 VS red-dot optic from Kalinka Optics mounted effortlessly on both PSA rifles. There are plenty of aftermarket AK mounts that also put a Picatinny rail on top.
