First post here, not yet an AK owner.
My plan is to get at least a couple in the not too distant future, but in reading it sounds as though getting some kits would be well advised also.
So... some questions...
1) What's the best deal right now on kits?
2) Aside from the kit, is there anything else I need? I'm guessing US rec'r...
Buy your kit from DPH Arms, and as for the rest of your parts, you will have to shop around. But Midwest Armory has some great prices on fire control groups etc.
The 16 countable parts in a AK with a muzzle device. No more than 10 of these parts may be imported.

(6) Bolt carrier
(7) Gas piston
(12) Pistol grip
(13) Forearm handguards
(14) Magazine body
Thanks, Dale, much appreciated!
