    Why don't you do a little reading first.

    Almost every AK in current production takes high-cap mags, is fairly cheap and always reliable. Why don't you tell us the gun's intended purpose and we can help you choose a weapon that will fit your needs.

    Cheap, reliable AK that takes normal mags, well the least common denominator is the WASR-10/63. About $400. I'd start looking at them and see if that'll float your boat.

    Did for me, I got one four years ago and it's been reliable and a lot of fun.

    If your budget is higher then of course look at others. And don't forget you have a caliber choice of 7.62x39 or 5.45x39.

    Classic Arms Inc.
    I have not dealt with this shop personally, but have heard very good reviews. They have several different AK-pattern rifles and a AK-pattern shotgun.

    I have a buddy with a WASR-10; it is a basic, semi-auto, Romanian version of an AK47. Dude has really enjoyed his WASR. If you search "wasr" in this section of the forum, you should find some pictures of different WASR's in different stages of customization. I was told the "10-63" was just used to distinguish this rifle from earlier, remarkably similar models.

    I continue to lust after one of the Draco's myself, like an AK midget.

    first AK

    I had been planning on getting an AK of some sort and had done much research. I finally settled on a Saiga 7.62x39 and was price shopping on line and locally here in the Dallas area. Best price on line was 339.00 (plus FFL, shipping, tax, etc.) and locally the best was 389.00. Well I went to the gun show in Mesquite this weekend and got my Saiga for 299.00 plus tax :):):)
    It came with 1 10-rnd mag and I've ordered a 20rnd Promag. Midwest supply also has 30 rounders for 22.00
    Haven't shot it yet, but I'm looking forward to it.

    Those are decent prices. Pretty average (maybe slightly lower) for cases, but awesome bulk deals. Anyone wanna go halfers on a pallet? ;)

    Anyone with experience?

    You said home defense? What kind of area do you live in? If you have neighbors anywhere near you I would advise against using a rifle for home defense. On the other hand, if you live in an open rural area, a rifle might not be a bad idea.

    But a Saiga shotgun might be better suited if you want an AK style gun for home defense.

    In today's market the AK74 is about the same price as the AK47, but the 74 is a lot more accurate. And much cheaper to shoot the 74 shoots 5.45x39 that is running from $130 to $150 per 1080rds. the 47 ammo is about $200+ per 1000
    You can actually pay for your gun with the savings from the difference of the two types of ammo.
    This is a great plinker gun, if you need a gun for home defense buy a shotgun.

    Home defense???? Might want to rethink spraying the inside of your home with rounds that can penetrate a car door at 100 yds, just my opinion but the AK should stay on the range, get a 12 ga for HD.
