    I would like to get my first Ak and here is my list of preferences
    1 not that costly 400$ and under
    2 very customizable
    3 very reliable
    4 in 223 or 7.62x39 so I can buy surplus
    5 generally light
    And pics and price would be nice

    I would go with a WASR 10, inexpensive at about $389. Easy to dress up if that is something you want to do. A blast to shoot. Personally, I prefer my AK in 7.62x39. No picture how about a short video.

    I agree with Shi, The Romey WASR-10 in 7.62 is a hoot.

    Ok one of the main reasons I'm getting an Ak is because its one of the most realiable guns ever and if I ever need to survive where I would need a realiable gun I would like this Ak at my side so could you also tell me some of the accerories I may or would need. ( I know I would need 6-10 mags and plenty of ammo)

    You should also consider the AK74 Classic Arms has them right now for only $389.99 for the Polish Tantal it looks like this.

    The AK74 is very customizable, very reliable, cheap surplus is available(as low as 10 cents per round), just as light or lighter than the AK47, and one added bonus it kicks less than the .223 and is just as accurate.
    Or if that is not to your liking Classic Arms also has the Saiga in all three cal.s .223, 5.45x39, & 7.62x39 for the sale price of $349.99:eek:

    Is there any way I can take the stock off of that and put a folder stock on the saiga or the classic arms?
