    For a low-cost ($350ish) rifle, I'd suggest either an SAR1 or a Cetme. With either one, it would be wise to inspect it by hand prior to purchase due to the angry beavers that Century Arms employs as gunsmiths.

    I'm doing a bit of research and leaning toward the RRA LAR10, myself. Anyone have any experience with one yet?

    I shoot my ARs. I use my AKs.

    HMMMM!

    I have seen both the AK and AR on the sharp end of the stick. So it shades my view a bit.

    I'm no fan of either one but the AR is a much better platform if you can afford it.

    Wow, you're right. I did a search, and since the days were close overlooked the year. The RRA LAR10 hadn't been invented yet.

    In MI any centerfire round is legal for deer.

    WASR10's can be had on sale at Dunhams for around $300+ depending on when they go on sale. Check for a canted front sight. The magwell may require a bit of dremeling. Mine did. Mine also does not feed Wolf HP.

    The AR will probably be a bit fussier, and the bolt is pretty much going to break on you sooner or later. However mine eats everything I feed it. It has only FTE'd twice. Both times at a class, when it was really hot, and dry. I also never clean it, to see just how true or untrue the relability rumors are. So far for me they are false. I do not have hopes for my bolt going forever though. The AR is more modifiable. They are usually more expensive, depending on what you get of either.

    Why don't you come out to the match we are having this weekend, and hang out, and see what everyone is shooting? www.actshooters.com

    Good points all around. Get both. Definitely. They're both great in their own ways, and you'll want the first-hand experience with both of them.
