I searched for my answer, but I did not find exactly what I was looking for

I'm looking for my 1st AK. I can buy a NEW AK WASR with 1k of ammo for 503.00 shipped from AIM. I don't want a bad first AK experience, and I don't want an AK with canted sights or loose mag well, so I don't know if I should go this route..

The other two I'm considering from Atlantic FA are the Lancaster and Vector. They both sell for 499.99.

Which one would you feel is the better choice from your personal experience.

The Lancaster is chromed lined, G2 fire control, and lifetime warranty (if that matters)
Vector uses original AK parts set, five year warranty it doesn't have chrome lined barrel or G2.

What would you recommend I buy WASR from AIM or step up and buy the better AK from AFA

I would go with the Vector. I bought one after my WASR-10 and am so much happier with it! BTW, Vector AK's DO come with a chrome lined barrel and Tapco G2 Fire Control Group. Atlantic Arms, for whatever reason, just doesn't mention it in their product description.

Hopefully this will help Lancaster
