Appreciate the feedback firstsoldier. The AK has been considered but I hesitate everytime I look at them. There are good ones and not so good ones based on vintage or who makes 'em. I don't know the difference between 'real' AKs and those made by other east european nations or China.
I just haven't studied up and I know I could get taken say, at a gun show.

I bought my Romanian underfolder for $420 NIB from One Stop Gun Shop in ND and have never had any problems with it. Accuracy is acceptable with iron or scope (about 2" at 50 yds). I call it minute of chest, short, compact and more than enough firepower. As always the old firstsoldier.

Just came back from Ruger's website and saw two things. Mini14 in 6.8 SPC NLA and the Mini 30 has a new tactical version reviewed at WeaponEvolution
Model: Mini-30 Tactical, Caliber: 7.62x39mm, Overall length: 36.75 in, Barrel length: 16.1 in, Rifling twist: 1/10 in, Muzzle thread: 5/8 x 24 TPI Weight: 6.73 lbs

Maybe, maybe, once I get to look at one up close, I won't need to re-barrel or custom upgrade to 300BLK. Maybe
