Thinking of buying an AK but I don't know a good AK from a bad one. WMDers have any suggestions?
I have an Arsenal AK with a milled receiver. After having it and handling other AK's, I feel it's a good quality rifle.
From my limited knowledge based off of AK47.net...
Russians and Bulgarians make the best
Yugos and Polish are in the middle
Romanian are lowest quality
Arsenal is definintely quality, but also very costly.
I would suggest browsing AK47.net a little and see what you find.
for quality either get an arsenal or get a kit + receiver etc and get a smith to build it.
So what kind of price am I looking at for an Arsenal?
milled, about 700 on a very lucky find to over 1k
its a fucking AK.
$1000 for an AK? They sell those at gun shows for like $350 around here.
yah, shitty ass WASRs that don't even necessarily work properly.
Sounds like every one is pretty happy with those Yugo underfolders AIM was selling. Pretty good price and they felt pretty solid
All 13 of mine just sit under my bed, they're pieces of shit
My friend bought one, and it has never had a fail to fire or anything else go wrong with it.
Wanna sell me one?
My brother's Vector underfolder is fantastic, we shoot clays at 100 yd with no problem, open sights.
neither have i. its just internet bashing from people like striker. all guns have their flaws, including ak's. yeah, its not finished very well( or at all in some cases) but they shoot just fine.
Mine is the Bulgarian reciever and I picked it up for $650 back before the ban lifted.
No Romak III no care
Im getting the WASR 2 romanian 5.45x39mm. Most people I know with them have never had one problem, and it will be a fun project to add all new furnature and a cheap scope etc. It will be tacticooled out by the years end
its a cheap rifle to start with, and is highly modifiable (cosmetically)
I want a semi-auto 762x54 rifle. Thinking either the SVT-40 or the Romak III someday. Amazing prices on ammo right now
I want a PSL
I want a Polish underfolder modded to accept ppsh mags
My cheaptastic WASR seems to have some feeding problems. Not sure if it's just some bum magazines or what (Promags and some cheesy 10-round mags have given me trouble).
I'm sort of lusting over those underfolders that AIM is selling, just not wanting to spend any money right now.
are SVT40's expensive. seems like the alternative to shootin my m1a
