I've gone gun nuts and need another suggestion.

    Well, last week I finally broke down and bought my first AR. A Bushmaster as it were and I'm extremely pleased with it. Thanks for those who said thier piece.

    NOW, I'd like your expertise yet again. Since I have the "good guy's" weapon, naturally I need her antithesis. Yes, I'm speaking of an AK-47.

    Personally I'd like one of the older more true to the original AK. Nothing against the AKMs or 74s. I just want one from the former Warsaw Pact countries but not sure which is the best. An example straight from Russia would be the ideal but I would like to hear opinions.

    As a side note what do you think of this deal? Its supposedly Romanian. Decent rifle setup or just a stamped tin can? http://www.atlanticfirearms.com/programming/expand.asp?Prodid=234

    I have one and couldnt be happier with it. Of course you should know they come with scratches all over straight from the factory. I paid 389$ for mine less the handsome carrying case. Good luck

    I have one of the Romanian AKMs presently being reassembled into a semi-auto on a Nodak receiver by the nice folks at Coal Creek armory. :)

    I also ordered a Polish underfolder from cheaper than dirt -- much nicer in my opinion.

    Finally -- if you're really in the mood for true history and less concerned about condition, there are still some nice parts kits of Russian AKs that were then used by the PLO. Two generations of "bad guys" in one gun! :)

    Spendier than the other options, but more panache I think.

    You might want to check out the AK's mfg by Arsenal, Inc out of Las Vegas. Use a lot a Bulgarian parts with US made recievers, furniture, etc. A little pricey but very nice. Fit and finish as good as it gets.
