AK-47 Suggestions

I'm thinking about getting an AK. Don't really need one, but just want to have one before I croak. Ammo's cheap enough and I do a lot of plinking. Can you suggest a good make at a reasonable price? (between $600 - $1,000). I'd appreciate all input.

Thanks!

If you want to get ammo on the cheap, pick up an AK-74 instead. I get my surplus ammo 2000 to the case for about $230.

I have a WASR-2, but there are several decent AKs out there. I'm not a big fan of the SAIGA line, but others may be.

I bought 2 Mosin Nagant AK47's from cabellas because they were cheap ($350) and I'm very satisfied with them. I've fired thousands of rounds through them, especially the first one with the slidefire. The second had some feeding problems but was solved with some filing on the top of the clip but trouble free other than that. Not the most accurate but average for an AK.

I have owned several and never had any big problem with them. You can't beat them for the price.

If you're going to war, probably best to spend some extra $$$, but if you're just looking to kill a few zombies, this will git'r done

Strictly for the GEN2's Sporting the undertail with pride!

I picked up a WASR AK47 through http://www.impactguns.com it was the Military one and NIB for like $480ish shipped, just don't be in a hurry as I waited a few months for it to come in since Century Arms that handles the importing out of Romania won't ship until they have a full container of orders. I picked up 1000 rnds of ammo for $211 shipped to my door.

Here she is on the way home from the FFL before the degreasing and finishing of the furniture began:

Thanks for your inputs. I goozled "AK-47" (and axe .com too) and found as many opinions as there are people, but I've always gotten great input on this board whenever I ask a question. Thanks again and keep the comments comin'

Get the Tommy gun. That's a classic.

Oh, and the violin carrying case, of course...

I am so jealous that you guys can even ask the question let alone own these firearms. The uk is such a nanny state you can't even have a decent high power air rifle without a raft of paperwork.
