    Anyone else here miss the days when a good Chinese MAK-90 could be had for 300-350? I wish they'd bring the Commie rifles back. Apparently when a Commie is in charge they frown on permitting their subjects, who can never be trusted with arms, to own or buy modern sporting rifles. The anti-theistic deity forbids it! The hypocrite from California who carries her own concealed carry weapon while forbidding her subjects from doing the same forbids it!

    This is the only place that has one in stock, but they have stopped selling until their shipping dept. can get caught up.

    But it will be a little higher than you expected, it's $699.:eek:
    It is an AK 74 so the ammo is cheaper.........if you don't wait & buy it right now. Who knows when it will go through the roof.

    I want an ak 47 not 74. The 74 fires a different round. Is the ammo cheaper for the ak74?

    Yes the 5.45x39 is a lot cheaper than the 7.62x39 ammo if you are buying surplus.
    Checking today's price the 5.45 is 7 cents cheaper per round, that is $35 less per 500 rounds. The AK74 has less recoil so it is easier to get back on target for any follow up shots. As long as you don't need knock down power the AK74 is a great gun & fun to shoot.

    I know of a "sporty" SAIGA 16" 7.62x39 available now for a FTF trade in West PA for a Mini-14.

    PM if interested for info.
