From your list I would go with the AES or M72...however in that price range why not go with an Arsenal AK? Unless you have one already?? Great quality AK's...just an observation.

quality over quantity

save up and buy an arsenal or other big name

it's only an AK, They were never meant to compete with the big game rifles. No matter how you polish a turd it's still a turd! They only had one purpose! And just because its says MADE IN AMERICA doesn't make it do anything different. I have expensive rifles, they are no better. I want a shooter, Oh yea and if they pick it up off the battle field they won't get the best and say to bad he didn't spend that on ammo and learning to shoot.Thanks, How about you shooters, no comments? Thanks loco

What makes you think we don't shoot our Arsenals? I'd take an Arsenal over any of those rifles you mentioned for a SHTF situation.
I'd also add a Mak 90 to the list, best of both quality and reliability for the price IMHO
but from your list +1 for the m72 rpk & AES 10-B

Please no chrome. Please.
They are all shooters. I have some Arsenals, and I would buy a $400. ak and use the rest for ammo. I think my $399. AMD is just as reliable as any Arsenal. If you get the AES make sure it has the heavy barrel and carring handle, I have seen some without.

No disrespect, I've been on both ends of the AK and not sure high dollar makes them better in function. I know of the Big names just not impressed, been a gun nut to long and know the big boys make crap also, most of the time the name gets in the way when looking for flaws or we're not sharp enough to know what they did. Just wanting to know info on the ones in the list. not sure how the heavies are, not sure weather I want to be light and versital on stand a fight with range? Thanks loco

what I mean it you probably want to buy rifles with the original barrels and not US replacements. I personally will only buy rifles that have foreign barrels on them. I have a WASR2 as my cheap shooter and it has worked flawlessly and will likely continue to do so.
