You can't go wrong with a WASR 10/63. You might want to change out the wood furniture on the rifle for a better quality wood or polymer stock. I've never had any problems with mine. They have a pretty good trigger too. It's a Tapco G2. Most of them have a threaded barrel, but the muzzle nut has been welded on. It can easily be grinded off though, just be careful not to screw up the threads. Welcome to the AK club.
