Hello everyone, well the last two weeks I have had the itch bad, I have already purchased an armalite 20 ar15, a berretta 92fs, and a yugo sks, as well as a nice safe. My problem is this is still have some money left. Now I can purchase either a bushmaster xm15 shorty with the ak style brake for about 750.00 on a new norinco ak-47 nib with two 30rd mags.. This norinco is milled, and they are asking 595.00.. What do you guys think??

DOes the Norinco have a thumbhole stock? Do you know what model it is?

You must have an AK style firearm to round out your collection. An Ak is a masterpiece of simplicity and the cheap ammo is a plus. Norincos are fine firearms but I am not too fond of milled receivers. They are built like tanks but a little on the heavy side for an assult type rifle. BTW I am impressed that you had the foresight to buy a safe. Step one is to responsibly protect your investments.

Bulgarian SAM7 from Arsenal

Bulgarian AK74 parts kit from K-VAR, Ohio Ordnance AK74 receiver, some compliance parts and an assembly by Inrange

A few bucks more buy a Krinkov from Ohio Rapid Fire

My SAR2 Campyclone, email me if interested

Well i have been checking the AK forum as well and may end up getting a SAR1 from aimsurplus

I've pretty much gravitated to the AK over the AR, but $595 for a post-ban Norinco is too much to pay. They're great guns, but the price is too high. You can get much more value for that money. Cruise over to the Darkside (AK forum) and learn.

humm do this and you can have both worlds.

1. buy a romain sar1 for 300
2. buy a target/varmit upper for your ar15 500 or so

3. have your cake and eat it too.

My MAK-90 is a milled receiver. They were available both milled and stamped.

They sell for ~ $450 NIB here.

MAKs are below me, so I never knew that they were made by Norinco.

Didn't someone have a post last week about their AR180 breaking into pieces?

The best of both worlds would be a Daewoo DR200 or DR300
Link Posted: 12/23/2002 1:38:24 PM EST
Daewoos are sweet, but $7-800 out by me.

Check the auction sight CJ, you can find Daewoos for around $600 if you look.

This is a REALLY GOOD IDEA.

You are done...almost.

The SAR1 and the AR15, side by side in my safe for years. Two great machines.

Asfor the SAR1 on the range...no worries. You have to try real hard to make one stop working.
I would put a Kobra Red Dot on it($130 shipped) and make sure you get the model that takes AA batteries. I am assuming that your SAR1 has the side rail already installed as most of them do.

For a peak at my SAR1 (and the Kobra), take a look at this:

home.earthlink.net/~royce_martin/Kobra.htm

Yeah, I took off the grip and found a Bulgarian thumbhole...really comfortable to shoot. With the red dot, I can make a 12" plastic lid dance out to 200 yards all day long...which is all you expect an AK to do.
