I wish the 5.56x45 mags were easier to find, and cheaper. I'm not a huge fan of the 7.62x39mm.
I understand your position, but not completely.the 7.62x39 it's a great caliber if used properly- you have only to compesate the bullet drop a little more and to get used to the recoil.And you can order it if it is not available.Anyway....I suggest you to give it another chance.Give yourself some time to get yourself used to it and you will appreciate its advantages.

I've had a few guns chambered in the x39. Just not a fan of it, I like flat shooting calibers.

In the next few weeks ill probably get an OPAP with all wood furniture. I like the classic look of the AK, just not a fan of much else about it.

The 223 wins the trajectory flatness contest, the 7.62 the stopping power contest.It all depend on what you have to do.I would rather choose the 7.62 instead of the .223 in the majority of cases.

I like the .223 a lot, it's a true multi purpose caliber. If I need more power ill switch to a full rifle cartridge. Ill just swap out for the 6.5 Grendal upper I'm about to build.

It is funny reading comments on ammunition. If you post, which cartridge is best for deer hunting?? The Urban Hunters Association will scream no to the .30-30!!
And on the next thread they compare there super powerful AK-47 with the powerful .30-30?? Anyone with firearms knowledge laughs at them. Hell they are wrong on both answers.

Now before you respond. This is my Pre-Ban Ak.

Fell in love with them during my tour in Iraq, they are simple, reliable and brutally effective. That is the goal of every firearm.

What EMR76 said plus NIB for a Romanian SAR 1, $199.00 was a good price even in 2003.
