    I am contemplating a WASR 10/63 in 7.62 - I already have a Saiga in 5.56 - should I spend the $500 to get a WASR or just take the money and buy more magazines and ammo?

    hard choice. i have one, and its shoots okay. not a tack driver but hits steel every time. really fun to shoot. and cheaper ammo. but again.. 1000 rnds of 5.56 and mags... hmm up to you. all i can say is they are fun to shoot. they a great at the range but server very little purpose for anything else. really comes down to, do you want another rifle. or do you want more practice time.

    Nothing like a cheap authentic ak style rifle. I love mine

    Normally I'd vote to add the second gun, but I have the hoarding sickness.

    In my case I have too many already and never shoot half of them - I haven't shot my SAIGA in at least 2 years. My MAC in about 13 years.

    I hoarded a couple different rifles for like at least a decade before shooting one and then selling it, and just flat-out selling the other in unfired condition.

    Don't be a hoarder like me. No fun and ties up cash.

    In your case you already have an "AK" - just in 5.56. So - I'd spend the cash on more mags and ammo.

    I had purchased a WASR 10/63 1967 AKM at a recent gun show for close to that same amount. Best deal and find ever! You can't go wrong with something as traditionally realiable. :)

    Buy another one. AK prices going up from what i seen in my LGS for almost $1K. I got my Arsenal Saiga early of this year for $800 shipped. Plus we never knows whats going to happen if they BAN the AK. :).
