    I'm looking to buy an AK and was wondering what everyone's opinions were on brands. Thanks

    Im not sure the issue is whats best anymore, but what can you get.

    All things available I would say either preban Norinco or converted early Mak90 or an Arsenal SLR10X series.

    Arsenals are pretty much the best commonly found AKs in my opinion, probably the most accurate too. Prices are high right now though.

    They all suck and are sloppy....but that makes them a great ammo HOG! I have fired alot of different brands. and I agree with the first couple posts...if you can find them its a good one. I have never had a problem w/ a WASR heard stories. But heard stories about them all.

    The best that I've had was a Hungarian. Well built and nice finish.

    The best thing about an AK is that it just keeps firing, so... you are gonna have to clean it once a year whether it needs it or not! :D
