My buddy's WASR was purchased last year at a gun show, supposedly of recently acquired stock. It's receiver was stamped; it is my understanding that this is the norm and was one of the original big +'s or the AK platform, easier & cheaper to produce lots of them. The magazine well on his WASR was enlarged or "milled out" to allow the use of the more common double-stack magazines. In many catalogs, they offer different versions of the buttstock for the rifles with receivers stamped from sheets of metal than for the rifles with receivers milled out of a block of metal. According to his experience, one is angled while the other is more flat-fitting.

Perhaps i have been misinformed about the majority of them being stamped, but i'm sure his was.

Yes the majority are stamped. To get a milled AK your going to be spending 1000+. Prob closer to 1500+.

I did see one on sale, may be today only:
"BONUS RIFLE OF THE DAY
CENTURY ARMS NEW CENTURION 39 U.S. MFG AK RIFLE"
Classic Arms Inc. scroll down a bit. It says "milled receiver" & the receiver does look a bit different than my buddy's WASR. I have not used this vendor but have heard good things, YMMV.

Yugos can be had for $700 RPK style w/ heavy barrel. Custom AKs from Lancaster w/ milled receivers can ever be had for less than 1k.
