What brand and what exact model? Need to be more specific if you want answers.

The design of the ak mixed with a straight wall casing like the 5.56 has its fair share of hiccups. Why not look onto a ak74? 5.45. Surplus ammo is cheap and plentiful

Arsenal ak 106...
I did look into the ak74 but didnt like the lack of ammo variety. Majority is imported ammo from other countries

If you can find a Norinco in the 5.56 cal. it will be worth every penny.The one I own (BWK-92 sporter) it is as dependable as an AK & will group if I do my part,better than any one of my Bushmaster AR rifles;)

As for the other AK type rifles chambered in 5.56 I cant say.Never had the chance to shoot one.

I don't own an Arsenal but I do know they make good guns so you should be fine, if you are still worried try to shoot one before you buy it.

I shoot a Saiga - feeds and ejects without problem and is reasonably accurate
