looking to buy one of these two. Which one is best for combat, reliability, accuracy, hunting, and quality? What is a Heinz ak47? I cant seem to find anything on Heinz ak47 on the net.

both should be very reliable(pending the WASR doesn't have too much of a mag well issue and the yugo was built good), the yugo will be noticeably heavier than the WASR, i have heard some great accuracy reports about the yugos and with all do respect the WASR should be "combat" accurate as well.

my .02

both are nice buy the yugo first(if you can find one at this time) and then save up some more pennies and get the WASR later(the yugo is harder to come by at this time)

Century's Yugo M70 underfolder is one of the best AK's out right now, especially for the price. They are manufactured with brand new barrels and these some of the most accurate 7.62x39 AK's out there. I have owned SAR1's and GPWASRs, which are roughly of equal quality. The GP WASR is a better weapon than a WASR 10, so buy a GP if you elect to buy a WASR as they have better triggers and are overall better weapons. They lack "dimples" on the mag well which can allow for some lateral magazine wobble which is nothing more than a slight annoyance. SAR1's will have the magazine dimples, but you will likely pay is much, if not more for a used SAR1 than you would for a brand new WASR GP. My experience has shown them both to be equal in quality. My GP was certainly capable of "combat accuracy" and then some, though not as accurate as my

Yugo underfolder though few 7.62 AK's are. Century really has a "hit" with thier Yugo underfolders.
The Yugo varient is unique in itself and its construction/features make it extremely desirable. Century is building them well with brand new barrels and selling them at a great price and you should definatly buy one if you can. I think its one of the best underfolders out there.... If you don't buy an underfolder, you will regret it when Hillary bans them and the Yugo is a great one to buy. If you cant find a Yugo to buy, a Vector would be an excellent second choice and their underfolder/fixed stock weapons are in the realm of both the GP WASR and Yugo M70. By far, the Yugo M70 will be the "best" milspec AK you can buy and it will work exceptionally well for your outlined tasks/requirements.

Only fault of the yugo is no chrome lined bore.

i prefer chrome moly over chrome lined anyways.

I dont see a problem with non chrome bores unless you shot corrosive ammo and also have a full auto AK. So whats the big deal

yep, it's not that big of a problem, but tests have proven chrome-lined bores greatly increase barrel life.

that being said you probably wouldn't ever notice a difference unless you plan on dumping around 80,000 rounds through that barrel in your lifetime.

Also, we all take it for granted that wolf and barnaul 7.62x39 is around, in the future, there may be periods when ONLY corrosive combloc 7.62x39 is available and you'll have little choice but to use it if you want to plink.

but again Corrosive fear is really an unfound phobia. Clean and scrub normally, pour boiling water with a little soap over the parts and through the bore and no worries.

The first batch of Yugo underfolders at AIM went for $399 each. Since then the price is up to $429 if you want to get on the waiting list.

He could be local to AIM.

Centefire also advertised them at $399 awhile ago. He might be near them as well.......in fact afew other vendors advertised them at $399 as well.

I would have ordered one but I wasnt to keen on the 2 month "you might get one" waiting list. Instead I bought a new Vector underfolder for $559......Im diggin it so far.

The CAI Yugo M70 i've seen at a local gunstore was only marginally better then the WASR. Crooked sights. Crooked grip which is slightly angled to the right from below the reciever. Non-matching finish on the Gas-tube from the rest of the rifle. Its heavier too. Why not buy a FAL carbine and not worry about some 7.62x39mm ammo shortage? (Winchester makes 7.62x39mm) Or atleast give Vector or Arsenal your money. CAI does'nt care about attention to detail on the rifles they sell. The Vector is close to the same price and their rifles are nice looking plus you can use standard AK aftermarket accessories. If you crack your Yugo handguard or want to replace the gas tube, you'll have to hunt around for the Yugo only parts.

The selector lever on the M70 require the removal of your firing hand to actuate. On AK's i've owned in the past, i could reach forward with my middle finger and flick it down while leaving my shooting hand on the grip.

True, rather get a vector than m70 now.
