Where in the EU are you that allows semi-auto "AK" style rifles?
How much does yours weight?
Am from Italy. We have some pretty strange / confused gun laws but not as strict as UK for instance. Sometimes they even make sense
AKs are sold in the 'hunting' category (and actually used for boars which have become quite a problem due to overpopulation), so they may have an evil look for the general public but the law sees them not differently than a normal semiauto hunting rifle.
Till a couple of years ago there was a 10 rounds limit for such guns. Now it has been lifted and we can use up to '29' rounds mags. At least for the moment. For use at the range I find the 10 rounds mags to be plenty and more handy. Still, it's nice to have some 29ers, just in case..
