Looking for a new rifle. I don't have that many rifles, a 10/22, a Mosin Nagant, a Hi-Point 9mm carbine, and a Ruger AR556. Primary purpose, fun. I was thinking it would be fun to own an AK 47, but the AR platform is so cheap right now and it seems many people bought AK's years ago when the imports were more plentiful and AR's were more expensive. That got me thinking about an AR in 300 BLK since it has similar ballistics. Since suppressors aren't legal in Illinois at this time, that got me thinking about an AR in 7.62 x 39 since ammo is cheaper than 300 BLK, but I do reload. An AK 47 would probably be the most fun just because it would be a new to me platform, but I haven't read too many good reviews for the cheaper AK's and I wouldn't spend the money for an import. Has anyone on here purchased a cheaper AK and been happy with it? Should I forget the AK and stick with an AR in one of the other calibers? Thoughts?
