I just ordered an EAA Zastava PAP 7.62x39. Picking it up on 28 Feb. All reviews say that its hard to beat for the price. I snagged it for $400. They are going fast, so I think people are catching on to their reputation. The only drawback is they only accept 10 rd. single stack mags, but alot of folks are talking about some milling work for them to take regular AK mags. I don't foresee this being an issue for me personally.
I am not a huge AK fan, but after researching this one, I got pretty stoked. Hope this helps!
