Since you have a few pistols already, I'd go with the AK.

What should a person look for in a ak? Is there going to be more problems down the road with a cheaper stamped version?
Thanks for the input.

I'm not sure (I don't have an AK yet). I hear that the WASR AKs are pretty good, but some can have issues with the sites. If you can pick one out in person, this can eliminate this.

Someone with more experience with AKs then me should respond soon.
