Looking for a 7.62x39 to add. Any recommendations on brand and where to buy. I would like to keep it under 700.00 if possible?

Good luck with current demand and pricing.

You might try PSA.

Look for one of the milled receiver models. I believe Arsenal made them for a while from milled Bulgarian receivers.

Check the used guns in the Classifieds here and other online sites and auctions. Buying a good new one is pretty difficult.

Don't forget, you still gotta feed the thing.

You can still get 7.62x39 ammo for around $.40/rd.

How are them Zavasta AK’s? Over priced I am sure. I have seen them advertised for $999.

Think they're rated decent. Not sure if stamped or milled recievers?

Most any comblock built military grade AK is going to work and last forever for what you’ll use it for. Some such as the earlier Romanian WASR’s when put back together in the US from parts had canted sites and other minor assembly problems not directly related to the quality of the parts themselves. Any comblock military AK is going to be made with forged trunnions and quality parts.

Forged receivers are nice to shoot and to appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into it. They obviously are worth a premium. I’d personally rather carry a stamped receiver into battle. The stamped receivers handle and point much better imo.

My son actually bought an AK just before the election. Fixed magazine for NY. I think he was a little over 1k out the door.

I would buy the slightly higher priced Wasr10 built with the right components, CL barrel and properly heat treated running train, properly heat treated receiver, trigger assembly, trunnions, rivet job.
Look at 2 or 3 and pick the straightest one if you have the chance to examine several.


If ya have someone who knows how to break one completely down and inspect one muzzle to butt plate.
Buy him lunch.

Look at your local armlist or gun ads websites for legit ads.
Dont discount low round count used AK,s.
Lots of people are selling excellent rifles with extremely low rd counts in exc condition.
Cash talks
Always bargin face to face after you breakdown and inspect the gun.
You might know way more about the platform than the seller.
Grants and Franklins shown are too much for some of private sellers to resist.
Especially now with desperate for money types.
You might get a smoking deal from a private state resident to state resident sale.
IE...
No four four seven three big brother stuff.....


Stay away from any IO
Early run Rileys.
Century Arms RAS 47,s
