    Purchase an AK47. Seriously I had an AR in 7.62x39 and liked it a lot. It was accurate and functioned great. My advice comes from your "best for me financially" comment. An AR is going to be more costly than an AK.

    I'm not a fan of the 2 companies you listed but thats been covered in other threads quite a few times.

    get an ar47 lower and an adams piston upper, best of bolth world.

    the perfect ak47 mags with the ar15 accuracy, and the Cleanliness of a piston system.

    this is the pricy way to do it.

    or best of all bets, get the Sig 556r in 7.62x39 it also takes ak mags and is piston driven. i seen one at acadamy for $800

    here is a good read also
