I've been looking for an AK style rifle to use for recreation with my friend and have found an AKM-74 for $330. I've always been interested in the new AK models the Russians have produced. Here are some of my questions about the 74 AK models, mainly in comparison to the AK-47 and Saiga. 1. Reliability equal to AK-47? 2. Ammunition is 5.45x39mm... any more accurate than 7.62x39mm? 3. Ammo availability and price equal to 7.62x39mm? My main concern is that these rifles are junk because they are so much cheaper than you average AK-47. Here is a link to the specific rifle I am referring to: AKM74 M74 ERTD Rifle, 5.45x39 Caliber, By CAI. Any info from people who own/have shot one is certainly appreciated!
