AK-74. Tantal or Arsenal.

But if you have $1000 to spend, a good AR would be even better. Especially a Colt.

I was in the same boat as you before I bought mine. I ended up going with the Arsenal SGL-31 (AK74), but looking back I wish I went with the AK47 model first. Speaking from experience with an Arsenal, the quality of the products are nice. Mags for the 47 are cheaper and everywhere too. Keep that in mind

I have an AK that has been shot a good deal over the past 40 years. This one was made in the U.S. back in the 1970s. The old AK only FTF when I feed it Hollow points. I like the AK. That said my Colt Prebans are far more useful rifles.:)

Shoot a few AKs and SKSs before you buy.

You may prefer the SKS, or an AK

barreled in 5.56 or 5.45. (YES, BOTH are available.)

Try to get what you really want the first time.

Then you'll have enough money for spare ammo,

and to buy me a beer or 9...:D

I have an Arsenal AK which I bought for $850.
It's an absolutely great weapon, no issues after approx 3000 rounds

I bought a EAA zestava pap single stack ak. And loved it they go around 3.75 or so. Then my buddy showed me his yugo sks with the tapco ts stock and 20 round detachable mags. I went and shot it. The thing was awesome so my ak was sold. I bought a yugo sks took the bayonet off. Got the tapco stock got all 922r parts put a bipod on it go the weaver receiver plate with scope rails got a reflex sight for it. The whole thing of buying parts and redoing it and i have less then 600 I'n everthing and it's gonna be decked out. I should finish it tonight and I'll post pix. As was said before me, go to a shop or a range or find friends with them and try them out. So you don't buy one like me then find something you want more and all that. Good luck finding what you want.

If your Yugo SKS has the grenade launcher on the muzzle have you tried launching practice grenades? I have & it is a lot of fun.
I use these blister packed blanks to launch these practice grenades

OP,
What do you want it to do? IOW will this be a fungun for targets and plinking cans, or do you plan on some hog hunting, or are you looking for a SHTF defensive rifle?

A buddy of mine has a relatively inexpensive WASR10 AK-type rifle from Romania, imported & modified by Century Arms; it is GREAT fun for plinking and such and wouldn't be bad for home defense (dude lives in the sticks) and wouldn't be bad for hunting hogs & such. It is NOT the most accurate or most "authentic-looking" AK-type rifle, but it is more than adequate for dude's needs. The more expensive models may be a liiiiiittle more accurate, but his is no slouch.
