WASR is a Romanian AK. See this currently active thread for WASR vs Saiga:

yes chrono is right, but they do make "Romanian type" aks here in America and those are very very good guns usually with milled receivers, but cost much more then a wasr or saiga, 800 bucks on average.

Well, the only "built in Romania" Romanian Kalashnikovs currently being sold are the WASRs.

Anything sold by a vendor marked "Romanian AK" (but not WASR) is most likely built here in the USA from a parts kit. The quality on these build varies with the reputation of the builder and the condition of the parts kit.

is there any way to tell how well they are made? Ask the seller where they got'em?

The jobber assembling the kits for them will have a company name that can be researched.
