    Its 7.62x39 no wood stock I just want to know why its so cheap?
    At Turners it sells for about $430.
    And also would it be good for hunting hog

    I've got one. I would think hunting hogs would be fun as heck to do with the ak. Unless your the hog. The prices have come down in the last couple of years.

    Should I just buy a ak or save up for a ar because I rather spend more money on something more reliable

    An AK is more or just as reliable as a AR in my opinion. I have had great luck with my WASR.

    That would be a personal choice. For the amount you said, that is alot of fire power for the buck. I know wasr 10 is on the low end of the ak spectrum but I have had nothing but fun with mine. Reliable is what an ak is known for.

    A shooting buddy has a WASR10, and i have thoroughly enjoyed shooting it, as has he. It has been VERY reliable, and there are many aftermarket accessories available for it. That sounds like a good price to me, but you should look around first.

    It's so cheap because there are TONS of them. Not bad for the money, but if you're expecting the same level of fit and finish as say a $400 American made hunting rifle, you'll be disappointed. I was in the market for an AK to add to the collection, and shot a couple of WASR's in the process. Yeah, they seemed "bullet proof", and yes, they performed with acceptable accuracy. I just couldn't get past how primitive they felt compared to ANYTHING I had fired before, not just my AR's. I know this comment will have some label me as an AR snob...that's fine. But its just my opinion. I'm not looking for a fight with the Kalashnikov fans here. The design itself is "as advertised". I'll have an AK someday, just not a WASR.

    The WASR-10 is what it is. A good AK-47 at a great price point.

    If you want a "Upscale" AK get a Arsenal.

    Actually you can have an arsenal quality AK for half the price. Just buy a saiga rifle in caliber of your choice and buy the conversion kit from one of a few online dealers that offer them,and do the conversion yourself. End result is a high quality AK for 400 dollars less than an arsenal. The conversion is really quite simple and can be done with regular hand tools and a cordless drill.

    Here's mine...

    Saigas are new production,cosmoline has never touched it. And there is probably more questionable material in my bed sheets than gun oil.

    Nice try pops

    It's amazing that in 2008-2009 you could get WASRs regularly at Dunhams for under $300.00. Now they have occasional sales - like Black Friday - for under $400.00.

    When the ATF forced the imported guns to have "new barrels" as opposed to NOS mil-surp barrels, the prices started upwards.

    I just got home from shooting mine. Most excellent. Fun, fun, Fun.

    Bad reviews? I saw on the internet where a guy found one from under a glacier. Picked it up and fired that prehistoric sabertooth tiger killing gun. He said the model number was
    Ak~47,000BC. Beat that for a review.

    Seriously, nothing but good things to say about mine.
