Any help here will much be appreciated.
Any one you want.
What I mean by that is you can get excellent AK's for $400 just depends on what you want to do because it's personal preference. I personally would look into a Yugo underfolder but that because I allready have a basic romanian (with zero problems) under half what your willing to spend. You might even look into a basic yugo and get a dress up kit if you like all the tactical stuff that everyone does to the AR's.
Good budget for a nice AK.
I like the Arsenals. just my opinion.
Not unless its an M95A....
+1 on anyone you want. some maybe prettier than others, but they are all pretty much the same.
I really like the Arsenal Milled AK's but would not recommend them because they are too dam expensive.
WASR-10's go for only $350, they are ugly, have a crooked front site, and have a slappy trigger. On the flip side though, they do go bang everytime and are very reliable. They also come with 2 mags, a mag pouch, and oil can, and a bayonet. If you are on a budget I highly recommend these.
Vector Arms go for about $550. I myself would much rather spend the extra $200 and get one of these over the WASR. They look very nicely made and seem to be a lot more solid.
I can't comment on the others.
I'd say go with an used Arsenal, a Vector, or an AK from Ohio Rapidfire.
atlantic firearms has many very nice AKs in that price range. my personal favorites are the Tantal and the Polish underfolders they have.
PS: Einheit, i wish i had taken your advice. I love my AR, but I find myself really rather having a quality AK. . .I would have spent less money too.
I can say this, My cousin has a vector RPK and a classic they are so nice and biult like tanks. plus it's hard to find any company that has a five year warranty like them. also there price is really good for what you get.
I'd say buy a Yugo, and then buy 2-3k Rounds for it.
I would like to have one but I don't know enough about them to buy one yet. I want something that is worry free and I don't want to have to work on it. I want something to fire, clean, fire clean, and on and on.
Part of the joy of owning guns like this is learning about them and their design. There are plenty of informational sources concerning the inner workings of this simple weapon.
+1 on checking out Atlantic Firearms AK selection ....
Anyone have one of these? If so, is it reliable and worth the price?
