Improving the feed angle & mechanics can only make it better - small plus.
Dedicated weights are nice - small plus.
I never took down an Izh35 to the point of the rear sight came away - neutral
Speaking only for myself I never felt a need or want for a buffer on a .22 (I don't shoot Int'l RF). If the buffer material isn't durable or if spares aren't readily available this could turn into a significant minus.
It looks like the major negative, crappy grip, hasn't been addressed; and I wonder if they have figured out a way to build a slide hold open out of something more rugged than a butterfly wing.

I think that the Russians have the right idea with grips. "Here's a chuck of wood to get you started".
