I'm in the market for a good starter AK (good fit, finish, customer service) and need advice on the best place to get one. I want to try and stay around $500-600 and have seen several sites with them in this range (Atlantic, Vector, Robarms, etc).have

I would get one from Atlantic cause they have many different ones to choose from and many of them are built by the builders you listed.

For a $100 more you could have the best AK made (cough)Arsenal(cough). Templar could fix you up ...

Take a look at Arsenals before buying an AK. After handling one you'll want to save that extra $150. Very nice rifles.

I got a gun from Atlantic back in May. I am very happy with the gun, but my purchasing experience with that company was less than ideal. Mr. Bunting only takes orders that are mailed in, (he has a Order Form on his site) that's not too bad, but he also has rules on HOW to order. That's OK all the way up till you try to print out his order form and it won't go through. (seriously) I have emailed the form to myself and tried printing out the email, and it still wouldn't print. I even emailed the form to my shop and tried printing it out on another computer. Same thing. I ended up having to type out my own Order Form in order to get the ball rolling.
