From what I hear the Romanian SAR is one of the better deals out there. I'm buying a laminated stock SAR-1 from www.aimsurplus.com

You should check out linx310.nothingbutguns.com. It is a very informative site dedicated to Romanian AK's. It helped me learn a lot of the basics about the AK.

Awsome, ive noticed some of them have Chrome lined barrels. Seems the russians are also providing lots of parts. Thanks for the info, anyone else have something to add?

I like chrome lined barrels in AK's, AR-15's or AR-10's for shooting dirty, cruddy, out-of-spec (that's why it's mil-surp in the first place) Mil-Surp ammunition and many do shoot with excellent accuracy.
----------------------------------------------

I'm basically in the same position as you - new to AK's. After picking these guys brain and reading many posts I went with an SAR-2 as my first 'shooter' AK. Somewhere along the way I'm going to also get an SAR-1.

Edited to add: I found my SAR-2 used, with scope and other accessories for $350 and that's well within your budget.

for my money, the $300 romanian sar series are the way to go.



CAMPYBOB is absolutely right. Even the WASR 10 hicap is good. (but the SAR 1 is better).

IMO, The SA-M7 is an excellent rifle. But if you want a shooter, go with something stamped and cheaper, especially if you are going to use the cheap steel-jacket ammo ($79/cs-1000).

Just wondering why steel jacketed ammo has anything to do with whether the receiver is stamped or milled? This makes no sense to me at all. Please explain. Also, what ammo are you talking about that is just steel jacketed? All of the ammo I've seen at least has copper plating. What type of AK do you have if I might ask and what type of ammo are you using?

Just got in my SAM-7 today. While I haven't yet fired this rifle I'm much impressed with the feel, fit and finish.

Yes I too am wondering on why I shouldn't use regular steel jacketed ammo in my SAM-7? I bought a AK for cheap fun and ended up going with a SAM-7. I will take care of it but still want it to be a rugged gun that I can throw anything at.

This SAM-7 sounds pretty nice. I would only be feeding it Wolf ammo. Im looking for another AK weapon that I can feed Russian stuff. Its so much cheaper than Q3131 in my AR. Anyone in Ga selling them?
