Hello everybody, I am just joining the awesome world of firearms so I was hoping you can help me with my second purchase. I only have a Mosin Nagant so far and after a lot of research about reliability, accuracy, and cost, I think that getting an AK-74 would be the best bet for me. I have also done so digging and found out that Bulgarian AKs are one of the best and don't cost an arm and a leg like Russian ones. I was hoping you guys could help me find the best deal on an AK-74. I live in Texas and while I would love to get my hands on one before I buy it, I don't think I will have much time so wanted to order it through a dealer and just pick it up. So far I found two deals that I believe are good but would like some advice. This looks like the perfect deal to me; good quality Bulgarian sub 500 dollars with black synth stock and grips and 4 mags! That's awesome. The only problem is that I am afraid of buying century arms since I heard they are notorious about putting things together poorly and having bad service. I would like my gun to be built right, without grinding and accurate with a barrel that won't corrode after a few years. Any experience with Century arms?: Bulgarian AK-74 Rifle - 5.45x39 - With 1 Mag #AKAGUN74 The other deal is this one which also seems really good although still a LOT more expensive (400 vs. 559 and less mags although other parts). I also don't like the wooden stocks as much though they are more classic. AK 74 Rifle for sale I really don't want to spend more than 600 bucks. I am on a tight budget and want the best quality and a great accuracy gun. I heard Ak 74s are pretty accurate and the ammo is cheap and the gun looks amazing and should be reliable. Please let me know if there are some better deals or what you think of these ones.
