    Never seen the other two but I have handled the WASR .22. My first impresion of it says don't get it. The edges seemed rough, wood not really finished. (however thats what a AK is supposed to be right ;) ) The thing that really bothered me was that the mag was made out of plastic and had plastic feed lips. It doesn't look like it would hold up to much use at all. The store model I handled had gouges in the feed lips already and looked like it would only get worse.

    Anybody with experience shooting the WASR-22?

    They're at the top of the list now from Classic Arms for $229.

    As much fun as I think they might be, the hold-up for me has always been the lack of anything other than a ten round magazine. At minimum a 20 rounder, preferable a 30 rd magazine to get my attention.

    Without a large capacity mag (that works) it's too much money for a 10 round .22.

    However, I may feel different if I were to shoot one, but it would have to be mighty impressive.

    Actually, 10 rounders would be a plus for me. I'd have to eventually get it into ********** in a few years when I move back. :(
