    For the money? Probably a converted Saiga.

    Or if money isn't an issue, my favorite, the Arsenal SLR-105.

    absolute best? Krebs KTR-03, or Vepr. Otherwise Arsenal makes some very nice ones.

    Personally I think the 5.45x39 is best suited in the krinkovs (AKS-74U)

    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.

    An Interarms Tantal is the nicest put together one I've seen yet. I've looked at the Arsenals and was not very impressed for the price tag.

    krebs only does that on their KTR series. However they do sell the rails and you can install them yourself.

    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's The Best AK?

    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.
