I want a .22 caliber version I am looking for affordibility and performace. The best I can find is from Atlantic Fire Arms. It is ann Olympic Arms plinker .223 for 579.00

If its a .22 LR your looking for, and could get by with just the upper to use with your exsisting lower, Sportsman's Guide has uppers for $399.97...

I don't have any upper or lower. If I buy an upper and a lower does it require any special tools or any hard configuring?

Since you need a complete AR, I don't think you'll find anything cheaper than $579...

Please stop and answer if you are looking for a .223 or a .22. You are going to get flawed information due to the conflicting info you have given us.... Once we know what you are looking for, we can help you out.

If you don't know the difference, its not a big deal, we'll help you out.



That's a good point you have there... Although after reading his question again, I do believe he's after a .223 caliber...

I guess either way we look at it, its still hard to beat that price for either caliber...

I'm after either but I think I'm gonna get an Ak cuz those are only 330.00 for a Romanian AKM47 WASR10 762X39 Rifle with Military Stock

The WASRs make good beater AKs--not that pretty, but they work fine (usually, unless you get the single stacked ones or a mis-machined one)

AKs will work (usually, as i have had ammo issues before), but they wont be as easy to re-configure or give the accuracy potential as an AR

are you looking for any partcular use for a rifle as a .22lr/.223/7.62x39/AR/AK platform you are inquiring on is all over the place....?

first, decide on a budget. then a prefered gun style. then narrow it down to caliber

Yeah I have decided on the ak where can I go to trick it out?

Cheapest isn't always the best - and before you go "tricking it out," invest in some ammo and hit the range.

An AK will fire and keep firing in the dirt mud water what ever! I have 1 or 2 but I love my AR's much better! A whole lot more accurate, not quite as reliable but I love the AR platforms! Just keep them oiled and they will treat you right! IF you go with the AK just feed it and it will keep cooking!

I just can't see myself spending 6 or 7 hundred dollars on a rifle

Stick with the AK the AR-15 is not for you. I have owned over 15 AKs and I would not spend my money on the WASR it's crude even for an AK. Search the EE for a used mak-90 or even a Robinson Arms VPER. You will be much happer in the end and you will have great resale value if you want to upgrade to an AR-15 at a latter date.

How much do you think a well functioning rifle should cost?

I know the original poster is off reading up on AKs, but I will post this for others:

Affordable .22 Upper

I own a WASR. Its a cheapy but nice for range shooting. Once I got the front sight to move it was much nicer. This is probably the best weapon to start with simply because of the cost. I'm just waiting on my tax $$ to come and then it will be a Bushy A3 16" carbine for me. TAPCO has quite a few options to trick out an AK if you REALLY wanted to. Good Luck..

keeping to the kinder-gentler ARFcom manner, lets just say...........

Then I suppose $2,000 is out of the question?

Used AKs are fun to shoot and can cost 'bout tree fiddy' ($350)
