Do you have friends with AK or AR types that you could shoot. I will say that my wife has shot both but she definitely preferred the AR for the location of controls and recoil as well as aesthetic preference. She also liked the fact that we could really tailor the parts to her exact liking.

For ease of use, and modularity I have to agree with my wife. The AR is tough to beat.

Consider an HK93/HK93 clone. I had a Century (contract-built) C93 and it has to be the sweetest shooting 5.56 rifle on the planet.

You could probably hand it to a 6yr old to shoot, or brace it against your chin and shoot it as it is that nice of a shooter.

I've been half-tempted to scrap the notion of all the AKs and switch over to the roller-locked 93 as the peer platform to my ARs. At least I'd have ammo compatibility.

What would be a reasonable price on a clone like that. I found a c93a3 on centerfiresystems.com for $499.

That's not a bad price, when they were first sold they were over $600, think I paid $500.00 and change for mine at Dunhams.
A year ago they were being delivered with 2 40rd mags and a beater bayo - except from J&G which always holds back a mag. How nice.

Centerfire has them on back-order now. They take an NFA HK sear-pack so they have become massively popular with the HK crowd saving the wear on their real HKs.
And just so you know, C93's start as REAL HK-33 parts kits that Century jobs out to possibly two different builders.

Good parts - bad builders.

Before buying, there are some caveats to learn - too much to post here. Go visit the clone subforum of HKPro and start reading C93 posts - several of which are mine;

See also here for C93 posts...

If after reading you decide to get one of these - see if there is Dunhams nearby - they sold them and that way you can hand-pick one.
