Default I've tested several variants and derivates of the AK

I'll tell you which are the best of them:

From Izmash, Russia
1)AKM-it's a classic and can be easely updated.Turn it to tactical by using a kit and you'll obtain a badass rifle.
2)AK 101/102-made for export.Chambered in 5,56x45....the most common caliber in the US.Up-to-date, but it can be still improved

From Zastava Arms(Former Yugoslavia, now Serbia)
1)M70 series:It's the best AK derivate ever made.Chambered in 7,62x39, it has a better gas system, longer barrel, the same reliability, can be easely updated and modernized.Accessories can be addeded(to make it almost recoilless).

Conclusion:
I have tested and modified almost every type of AK made by russians, serbo-croatian, hungarians,etc.

My weapon of choice?
The Zastava M70.Absolutely the best!I prefer it to the original AKM.

Things to avoid:
-Buy the Chinese type 56 (from Norico,bad quality...it jams a lot).
-Buy a Hungarian AK (poorly made)
-Buy an AK in average status(Even if you can abuse and AK rifle in several ways, it doesn't mean it will work perfectly if you do it)
-Buy an AK without checking the integrity of the barrel, gas piston and its rotating bolt.Even the mag insertion should be checked(If it fits as it should)

Agree on the M70AB1 or 2 PAP's - outfreakingstanding beyond a doubt.

Disagree on the Hunky or CHICOM;

The 80's era non-AMD Hunkys from FEG are superb.

ALL the CHICOMs I've had were great but the most "fragile" of the AKs - but only in terms of its blued-steel finish. You want to keep the CHICOM guns cleaned and oiled, wipe-down with a silicon cloth before casing to remove fingerprints, and be WARY of corrosive ammo.
A blued/wood AK is kinda classy - take care of 'em!

Thanks to the last 2 responders a lot of help. I had wanted the arsenal but just decided it was way to expensive. Thanks

I got a Norinko mak90 3 months ago locally frm a local paper ad for $420. It came with black polymer furnitures and 2 chinese 30 rnds mags. 1st Ak47 i handled and it rocks. I had to replace the trigger group w/ $35 US made tapco for it to meet 922r compliance. Check *********.com for the list of best AK on the market.

In comparison do you think the mini 30 is close in reliability and is it able to handle quantity of Russian military without problems?
