I want an AK right NOW. But I'm still paying for my AR-15. I can carry the AR-15 for work but not an AK so i got the AR first. AK comes next!

I bought a WASR10/63 about six years ago when they were about $300 NIB. Got it because it was cheap, had a good trigger and did everything expected of an AK. It was at a gun show so I was able to cherry pick to get straight sights and a decent magwell. No problems with it, even with surplus ammo, so I've hung on to it and have no plans to upgrade to higher respected version. Besides, I have quality when it comes to most other guns so why not have a cheap ugly mongrel with a bite!

Arsenal SLR-101S or SAM-7R

- Forged and milled receiver
- Cold hammer forged barrel
- Very smooth and light double hook trigger
- Smooth action
- Synthetic stock
- Optics rail

Cost is about the same cost as a Colt 6720 or Colt 6920.

With Golden Tiger FMJ it is not significantly less accurate than a Colt 6720 (both have relatively thin barrels, apples to apples) at 50-100 yards. I can't think of any reason why a civilian would have to take a shot that far but it's nice to know that both platforms get the job done, especially with Aimpoint's or EoTech's.
