I am thinking about purchasing an AK. I know there are quite a few makers and different versions. What kind would you recommend? Cost?

This would be just for fun at the range.

Thanks.

Arsenal SAM-7 or Vepr. About $600-800. These are the best factory out-of-the-box AKs out there.

jr,

Great price!

CSP,

I would also opt for an Arsenal Inc., SA M-7, either in a carbine or standard variant.

I've become a big fan of Polytechs. I have a NIB Legend inbound and should have it next Tuesday. It should compliment my blonde folding spiker nicely.

That's what they all say.

+1 on the Arsenal and Vepr.

It depends on how much you want to spend. Below is a general nib retail price range for no ban models and what I would recommend for the respect price ranges. This is only my opinion though. Good luck.

$300.00 - $350.00 ~ wasr10 (make sure you check fsb and gas block for cant, might need some dremmel time for mag fit, finish is ok, comes with 2 mags, bayo, cleaning kit, oiler)

$450.00 - $500.00 ~ Vector Classic (stamped receiver, well built, nice wood, comes with 1 mag)

$525.00 - $575.00 ~ Vector Underfolder (same as vector classic but with underfolder, comes with 1 mag)

$600.00 - $650.00 ~ Arsenal SA M7 Carbine (milled receiver, top shelf ak for the money, 90degree gas block, smooth action, synthetic furniture)

$700.00 - $800.00 ~ Arsenal SA M7 A1 (milled receiver, top shelf quality, great shooter, smooooth action, synthetic furniture)

$1000.00 + ~ Polytech Legend, Arsenal SA M7 Classic, Arsenal SA M7 underfolder.
