Default Looking for a russian AK

I Live in CA. I am looking for a Russian AK and wanted to know if I can legally own one and what is the best brand. I don't want to buy a cheap one I rather spend a lil more for quality.

Saiga rifles are Russian built AK rifles in a sporter configuration, they can be easilyconverted into a traditional setup. This is your best bet, Arsenal SGL AKs are converted Saiga's and are therefore Russian rifles built in the U.S.

As far as what you can legally own in CA, be very sure of local laws before buying any AK. It could be a non-converted Saiga is the best option but I can't be sure as I don't live there.

Get a saiga jus had the same problem they run for about $350-$500 even though is expensive to build to make it look more like an ak its worth it because it's reliable and pretty accurate
