Long read but see what happens about 800 rds into review. Look at dates.

Thanks for the info. Don't like the idea of having to bring a hammer. Sounds like I'll keep looking. Any brands recommend. thanks

Are you planning to tacticool it or leave it stock w/ iron sights?

If anything, browse thru this site, http://www.akfiles.com/forums/index.php, and see what's up in the AK world. As usual, there are fanboys of certain makes, Arsenal comes to mind.

The first and most important question, "What is your budget?"

I find that many of the AKs being put together in the US now a days are sh!t.
I won't bash any one builder because they all put out sh!t too often to not be very wary.
I do not recommend them unless you can lay hands on them and check them thoroughly for defects/problems, e.g. canted sights, sloppy triggers, ill fitting furniture, horrible finishes and etc.
And you need to do your homework and know what your looking at/for and what a good price is.
In the end, if it checks out and the price is right, buy it and shoot the sh!t out of it.


I would also recommend looking closely at good condition used AKs, and some new ones.
The new ones being the likes of Saiga, Vepr, Zastava and a few others which are pricey but very nice, e.g. KVar's or many of the beautiful toys listed on Atlantic Firearms.
These are addicting as they're much like ARs now, LEGO firearms, build them up any way that fits your fancy.

As for the used AKs imported as sporting rifles, Russia, China, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Egypt and some others, are all highly esteemed if in good/great condition.
Once again, hands on and check them over good before buying.
They're AKs, if nothing is whacked it'll go bang every time for several more decades to come.

I've a few AK47s and some AK platform in other calibers, mostly Saiga.
This thread needs some gun pRon.

Personally, I'd wait to see if new prices drop back to "reasonable". I was shocked when I was on the Atlantic Firearms site and saw AK prices.
As for used, do your homework first, I've seen $1000 price tags on WASRs being put up for sale, maybe they would have accepted $500, IDK.

MAK 90 owner myself.


Saiga conversion I did, shouda kept it. Traded it for a Tikka 270 that kept denting my shoulder.

If you're still looking, here's a crazy (to me) price. Maybe $ 270 in ammo?

Thanks Kanaka. Little out of my price range but a good deal for sure.
