Speaking of Krebs, check out their new selection of converted 5.45x39 Saigas. Just stumbled across it today - they look pretty good.
I was, however, a little disappointed in the fact that they do not have the uninterrupted railing mounted on top of the receiver like the KTR-08 has.
krebs only does that on their KTR series. However they do sell the rails and you can install them yourself.

Does anyone know anything about the In Range AK-74?

Best bang for the buck, get a Saiga 5.45x39 and convert. Can be done for about $500 if you shop carefully.

right now TCI is selling AK74s built on bulgarian recievers and barrels for $399. They are using beat up stocks ( which can easily be refinished) to keep the costs down. Easily the best deal out there. The guns are listed at $499 on their site, but if you go and register on Theakforum.com go down to the TCI forum--> Truck gun thread---> promo code, then you can get it for $399.

What' the best AK? I thought Polytech was a few years ago, but I've been out of the loop for awhile. Thanks for the info.

I would get the ak 74 su, if at all possible, if not that, then a polish tantal, something Israeli, then a converted saiga.
