A buddy of mine has one for sale. Do these AK's have a good rep? $400 a good price for it in average condition?

As you can tell I am a refugee from the ar15 side of this forum and need direction. I figured it would be good to have another weapon that shoots 5.56 like my Bushy. Anything you can tell me would be appreciated.

I believe this one has the regular magwell. The ones from aimsurplus are "converted" for double stack hi-cap mags.

True....but their still Romanian Aks that shoot .223 ammo. All thats missing is the dimples....if its worth $75 more for a used gun with dimples go for it.

I would pay the extra for the SAR-3 if it is in good shape and it is coming with some mags. I have a SAR-1 and SAR-3 and I am looking for a SAR-2 to finish ut the set. These are great rifles and I have never had a problem with either of them. Once you get an AK, just expect to get sucked in as you can get several AKs for the price of one AR and they are a great deal of fun to shoot!

Make sure the thing will run through 3-4 mags WITHOUT a malfunction of any kind...

then and only then would i plunk down some cash for it...

If it's a SAR3 (not a wasr3) the price isn't at all out of line. The SAR's haven't been imported for some time, so they are getting difficult to find. It would take more than $400 to buy any of the 3 SAR 3's I have. It's a sweet AK. A word of advice here, get Wieger mags for total realiability if you buy it.

Are they chambered for 223 or 5.56?

Mine said 5.56 on the side of the gun, but .223 on the box, so who knows.

Yeah, I'd pay $400 for an example with straight sights, aftermarket trigger group, and straight gas port.

I paid $300 for mine used, years ago. It has shitty trigger parts, and a canted FSB, and I dropped about $100 fixing those items.

Get the SAR 3 if it is in good shape. I got mine a few years ago and it has become one of my favorite AK's. just takes a bit of massaging to get the good parts on it to make it a real cool blaster.
