sar-2.

then you can add the -74 break and have one evil looking rifle.

5.45 is more accurate and it tumbles like a mofo.

7.62x39 is the chapest ammo around 1000 rounds of Wolf for like $75

Those two arguements pretty much sum it up. Otherwise they are about the same. I like both wiht a slight preference to the SAR-2 due to less recoil and a more effective round. The ammo is only about 10-12 cents a round in 5.45mm anyway. Not that much more expensive.

I like my SAR-1 but for me it's all about keeping my ammo stockpiles streamlined. I don't want to have to stock a caliber for one gun.

Of course CAMPYBOB will tell me to buy two SAR-2s.

thanks for all the info.. im not sure which one quite yet.. there is an sar-1 im looking at on a auction site.. its got a choate style stock all black synthetic furniture a weaver mount with a 6x42 scope. mags etc.. for 530.. does that sound a little hi?? does anyone have any good places to get an sar-1/2... i think i might start with a sar-2 then get a sar-1 later.. im tryn to trade some guns for whatever ak i get so i might not have a ton of options.

I prefer the SAR-1 for the 7.62 round. I just think its a better all around calibre. More versitle and have now learned that varmint rounds don't knock down plates all that well. Either way you can't really go wrong.

SAR3; accuracy,abundance of ammo,little recoil and god forbid if the SHTF,plenty of ammo pickups....
Just remember to buy the German metal mags for dependability.

Not knowing what else is in your collection or your shooting habits, get the SAR2. Besides, I am up to 9 calibers now and very happy. I just work the milsurp mkt and sales as they ebb and flow.
And our bigger guns still put occasional holes in plates! But the trade from easy follow up vs 1 shot/plate keeps it very interesting. Where else would you find Enfield's and MAS's at a plate shoot?

0kok, im going to try and get a cur-2.. good luck.. they seem a little hard to find ive noticed.

I know Campy, but when you are choosing the tools of the game, you gotta choose the tools for the game you are playing. Even the great one himself stated that he felt the new Generation should have been continued in 7.62. I know the 5.45 is good, but if I had to pick just one I'd stay with 7.62 for the reasons stated. I guess it still goes back to how one is going to use it. Then again for work I still choose the big slow 45 over the fast light 9.
