well I am still learning about these rifles, I would really like a milled receiver, but there are so many many companies producing AK and AK style guns,

is there a quality AK47 with a milled receiver that is good quality and economical that is preferred here?

I'd like to get into a good quality gun for around $800.00

thanks in advance

Jamie

Why do you want milled? A waste of weight if you ask me.

Get an arsenal ak from k-var and be done!

I would think it would be tougher, with less flex, maybe a bit more accurate.

I am kinda eying the Arsenal SGL21-61

Polish 1960 will probably be the next AK I buy.

1. Millions of stamped receiver AKs have been produced. There have not been widespread reports of failures of those receivers. Why do you think you need a semiauto rifle with a "tougher" receiver?
2. Do you really believe you can provide enough resistance with your shoulder to cause the stamped receiver to flex?
3. The receiver type does not sffect accuracy. Any difference in accuracy between a milled receiver rifle and a stamped receiver rifle comes from the thicker barrel profile used with most milled receivers.

Look around for a SLR-95. You probably wont find one NIB.

Shop around for a good deal on a Polytech or Norinco. There was just a lightly used Norinco milled with a 386 marked receiver at a local pawn shop for $440 Saturday. I stupidly left it there and went back to get it today. GONE. I haven't stopped kicking myself in the ass yet.
