The Krink is my son Toms that I have posted before.
Man that RPK is beautiful! Is yours the .308 or 7.62x39? Both are rare birds, but the Mitchell .308 RPK is very scarce.

I think I got 3 boxes of the real 8M3 effect ammo. I am skeptic if this new Tul is 8M3.

I really golden tiger because the air pocket it has in the projectile and it's accuracy.

Polytech AK-47S is a great rifle. They are a little pricy these days, but worth it, if you are into AK's.

I'd stray away from the Century Arms based on reviews for years of lower quality. It just depends on how much you want to shoot or use it. I think AK's are fun as hell to shoot and love the look of them; the classic wood and steel image. While they are not as user friendly as most other designs, such as AR's or M1A's, they are still fun and definitely deserve the respect for design and continued use.
Personally I believe in using Arsenal, Norinco, or DDI from America. I own an older Arsenal SGL-21 when the receivers were made in Russia. I get just over 1.5" groups at 100yds using Yugo surplus ammo. Just recently I acquired a Gordon Technologies milled SLR-100 in like new condition if not new. This is an extremely rare model and I've never seen one before. Have yet to shoot it but have high expectations.
Both Arsenal and DDI are making AKM versions under $900 and what I would suggest to start out with.

This is an older thread with personal opinions, but many very similar ratings in terms of quality of AK's. AR-15.com is different by far, but their reference sections are great in terms of information.

Not as accurate, maybe, but much more "user friendly". The design is so simple that it's foolproof.

I bought my WASR 10 back in 2007 for $350 OTD. Luckily my sights were straight and they had fixed the trigger slap issue by then. Solid performer.

Then I rolled the dice again with Century and got one of those Bulgy 74's on the Nodak spud receivers. I got bit bad, the barrel was sized for 5.56mm bore instead of 5.45, everything keyholed. $400 for that rifle and another $400 to replace the barrel with the right diameter bore. I'll never recoup what I've got in it but at least it shoots.

Thanks from Tommo

I've got a saiga, I've fired it a bunch. It shoots flawlessly. I want to convert it. What's the best place to get parts and instructions on how.
