    So, it's about time for me to add another piece to the collection. and I'm wondering... do I want another AK variant (saw a nicley priced RPK clone) or do I want a G3 clone (or similar 7.62 NATO weapon)
    Ive got the best/crappiest AKM I could find, and Im set on AR's.
    Welcoming any ideas, and I'll post pics of what I decede to get.

    p.s. it doesn't necessarily have to be an AK, I'd just want somthing more modern than a Nagant.

    Don't really want a Saiga in 308... 12 gauge maybe, but thats down the road. Are there any comm-bloc weapons that aren't based on the AK design?
    Only reason for that being, Ive got more than one rifle based on the AK, and im trying to add some variety.
    and CCSNIPER, love that comment, buy em all so they cant pull a red dawn on us.

    Don't fight it ! An RPK or another AK would give you that warm fuzzy feeling inside this cold winter! :D

    I would have to go with something from the NATO side of things. FAL, AR10, M1A maybe? I love my FAL, very accurate when I do my part.

    The M14 is still in active use, and would still be a machine gun per ATF regs - even if the sears are welded. You will never see them in the CMP unless the laws change and it becomes an official antique/military surplus item down the road years from now.

    I would say look into a Yugoslavian AK variant or an SKS (Russian or Yugo). The Yugoslavian AKs look and feel really handy with the underfolder stock, although cheek-resting on it would generally be uncomfortable.

    hmm... I do like the idea of getting either a M-14 clone or a FAL.
    but I also like the idea of getting the underfolder, and if i go with that route, i could just throw in an SKS.
    but than again ive always wanted the FAL...
    darnit, to many choices not enough money

    that picture would NEVER come back to haunt you :D

    Honestly, you seem to be leaning towards that RPK we saw... one of is us going to have to buy it. If not that, then get an FAL.

    well, an RPK is an RPK. But the FAL is a FAL...
    I need a good third option

    There aren't a whole lot of Combloc rifles left if you rule out anything AK or FAL like. There's the Vz58, but that's pretty close to an AK. What about an SKS?

    I always thought of the FAL (Fusil Automatique Léger, its French) as the right arm of the free world. It was (originaly) produced by Fabrique Nationale in Belgium (where NATO is Headquarted). It was intended to be the rifle for NATO; its not a com block weapon.

    In fact one could better charactorize certain AKs as NATO weapons with the expansion of NATO into countries like Poland. You could build a 96 Beryl look alike and have a NATO AK.

    There are a few other variants of it as well.
