I made a thread earlier in the general forum and got some good advice from some people. I also scanned and searched through this forum, and again found it very helpful. I'm in the market for a high capacity AK-47, and I was just wondering if anyone had any opinions. I can spend about 400-450 at the most. I'm leaning on either a SAR-1 like: this this this or maybe something like this I've heard a lot of good things about the bulgarian ak-47's, but they are really outta my price range. Most people I've talked to say I should spend the extra money and get a SAR-1, versus the cheaper WASR romanians. I just want something I can put a few bullets through and clean/maintain myself. Being a poor college student a 600 dollar bulgarian or AR is just too much for me, especially given that I don't really 'need' a rifle. This has been pretty long winded and incoherant, but mostly I just want some opinions of people with more experience with AK-47's and firearms than I have.
