Default AK 47 Which One?

I would venture to guess that an AK milled not stamped would be better however not really sure if the additional cost is worth it. I think I just want one for nostalgia reasons. With that being said how do I know if one that I might find is an actual Kalashnikov?

Your thoughts please, and thank you.

I have a milled Arsenal and a stamped Norinco. The Arsenal is better finished but I'm a lot more willing to grub around in the dirt with the Norinco.

I have a Nornico Mak90 I bought new in 94. A few thousand rounds no problems at all. Shoots great out to 100 yards. Haven't really shot it past. A good 8" grouping with open sights. I might buy a picinny rail to put a red dot on it. Maybe better groups then.
