You love showing off that beautiful gun don't you?
I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.
I was wondering what would be a good AK platform rifle that is relatively cheap, but easy to acquire. I know that after the Gun Ban came into play this year everything sky rocketed in price. AR's are out of the question entirely. I'm not a fan of 5.56 round due to my findings of the prices.
I was in the exact same position as you! until i realized the sks is just as good if not better, magazines for the ak type rifles are becoming harder to find, some are reliable some are not, the the sks dosent need a magazine it has a 10 round internal magazine that can be loaded by hand or use 10 round stripper clips, stripper clips are also MUCH cheaper 3-4$ a piece they are also alot lighter then the big ol ak mags, you can wear a vest carrying alot more ammo with stripper clips than you would with ak mags just 3 stripper clips in a pouch or pocket would be equivalent to a 30 round ak mag the most ak mags you can probably cary would be 6 or 8 but they are big and clums also the sks is a little more accurate due to its longer barrel there is a couple videos on youtube that made me decide an sks over an ak checkem out!
