If you want the accuracy of an AR, the looks & ruggedness of a AK.
Try getting a Polish Tantal it shoots the 5.45x39 round that is selling real cheap right now. As low as 11 cents per round if you buy in bulk.
You can get one for $389.99 here.
Classic Arms Inc.
About 7/8 of the way down the page.
It comes with a folding stock, but can easily be changed to a fixed stock.
But if you are going to spend more than $400 you could go up to $500 which is about what I paid for this.
I know this is the AK/SKS page but if you got the money you need to get your $$$ worth.
It is a Plum Crazy lower receiver with a custom blem upper on it.
The lower was only $119.99 & the upper cost $375 with bolt & carrier.
I have over 600rds through it to date without any problems.
