I am sure that there is 'endless' debate to which AK variant is best, but heres MY deal. I am looking to spend $300-$350 on an SAR-1. any reason i shouldnt? any little quirks i failed to realize? also, how can i tell a WASR-1 from a SAR-1?

Get the SAR-1
Watch for canted front sight base and trigger slap from sometimes out of spec disconnector
marking differences can be found here: www.gunsnet.net/Linx310/marking.htm

Sar's have mag well dimples WASR's don't...Make sure front site base and gas block are straight and you'll have a great shooter...

+1 for the SAR-1.  I have a '99.  Decent gun for the $.

My 2002 is a great AK.  One of the best European variants on the market.

If you hunt the EE you can get an awesome one for that $350 mark, or even a norinco milled. But you need to be hunting on thursdays at noon every other week to get the great deals. Kidding. Know what your looking for, and strike while the iron is hot.
