Favorite flavor?
 
Hi guys and gals, what's your favorite AK variant?

As for me I like them all but some more than others.
Saigas are at the top of my list, I also like the Hungarian models.
And of course the PSL is near and dear to my heart.

So what's your favorite?

Nobody here has a favorite?

They all go bang. My rifle is Polish. My 12 ga is a Saiga

Is the Polish a Tantal or the milled model.

Stamped, pre-Tantal. I would like a Tantal in 5.56

I've never had an AK that did not work, so don't really have a strong opinion.

Maadi, Norinco, Hungarian SA85, Saiga (non-converted), Polytech, they all work. But I prefer my box stock Saiga to all of them.

I wouldn't mind having a Dragunov one day, but only because they look awesome, wouldn't expect it to be too accurate.

Drags are wicked looking! I have the PSL and have read that they are about the same accuracy wise. Of course my PSL is fairly accurate with my handload, about 1.25 inches at 100 yards for a five shot group.

How much would a Dragunov set me back and is it possible to get say...1/2 MOA with them?

A Drag would probably run upwards of 10K providing you could find one. I think only 1,000 were imported here. They were something like 7500 a couple years ago. The Tigre, which is the civilian model, is much cheaper. I think they're about 2K or so.

I wouldn't think .5 MOA would be possible with one. The rimmed cartridge and loose tolerances of the rifle would make it VERY difficult at best, of course YMMV as always.
