Need help choosing AK
 
Hi everyone. I'm new to AK's and have been reading as much as possible. I'm looking for an underfolder. I've found a couple. I really can't find any info on which might be better. Below are the two that i think are my best options. The differences, as far as I can tell, is one comes with the original Polish chrome barrel, not sure if that is a good or bad thing, and the other one comes with a US made chrome barrel but also has a nickel plated bolt. Would love to get some opinions on which would be a better choice and why. They are both the same price and I'm sure of similar quality, just looking for pros and cons.
Thanks in advance for all the help and I'll be sure to post pics and a review for whichever one I choose.

I would get the one with the original chrome barrel.;)
The US chrome barrels are good but they don't have the long history of making there barrels stand up to corrosive ammo & full auto fire.
The other one just has a plated bolt & carrier that won't help a bit when the chrome starts pealing from the inside of the barrel.
I see this is your first post so I would like to say;
Welcome to the forum! :cool:
