  • Best AK for under $1k?

    Wondering if anyone has any experience/recommendations for any AK-47s/AK variants for under $1k. Heard good things about Arsenal, most are on the pricey side...I've already had my fill with ARs, just looking for something a bit different now. Any insight is appreciated.

    I have a SIG 556. I love it. I would use it on patrol but my PD wont authorize it for use because it doesn't look like an AR.

        50 years ago I was serving in Vietnam. AK-style rifles were a nickel a dozen, Chinese, Russian, Bulgarian, just about any variety you wanted. We captured thousands of them. When time permitted and transport was available they were hauled away for arming PF, RF, and other indigenous forces. Small caches that could not be hauled away, we cut up blocks of C4 to pack into the breaches, then wrapped 6 or 8 rifles together with detonating cord and blew them to pieces. Many more were loaded on helicopters and dropped into the South China Sea for disposal.

        I never had any desire to own any AK rifle. I always associated them with the Purple Heart medal (of which I have a few). Even when the Chinese were dumping AK-47 rifles on the American market at under $100 each (about 30 years ago) I wasn't interested at all.

        Sorry, bud, but to some of us old timers anyone with a AK-rifle is quickly classified as a target to be engaged. I expect that many of our Gulf War, Afghanistan, and Iraq vets feel the same way.

        Best regards.

          I think a lot would agree the AK rifle is the only thing produced by socialism/communism that actually is effective at what it does. This would purely be for fun/sport use and for the sake of having another gun in my closet. Though many of our enemies, past and present, have used it, I find it a hoot to use for fun and I'd hope that wouldn't automatically classify me as "one of them". There's also a handful of agencies that use AKs as their patrol rifles, i.e. North Slope Borough Police Department of Alaska.
