    Unsure of what to get (ak pistol)

    So ive been looking around the internet for ak pistols and i just cant figure out whats a good one to get. Ive looked and draco, some polish and others but i dont know whats good or whats trash. Any recommendations on anything less than $900?

    Honestly just spend the extra 200ish and get a sam7k-4 or sam7k-44
    The -4 has the 1913 rear rail so you can add a brace easily
    Or the -44 has the rear rail and threaded barrel so you can change the muzzle device if you care to

    Honestly my sam7k is my top 3 go to guns and also my backpack gun

    The draco is ehhh I'd choose the polish over the draco if your set on a stamped receiver gun

    If you are looking at imports, none of them are trash.
    However I would not choose a Zastava.

    The m85 is a pretty sweet little package. I would not overlook our friends in Serbia just because their current importer overprices their offerings.
    AZAK, scottyb, trevorakm and 1 others like this.

    Reliability is something I always consider. My opinion is not based on personal experience.

    I always kick myself in the butt every time I remember I should have bought one when they were available here behind the red curtain.

    I built me a replica Draco off a Polish kit. If hindsight is 20/20 and would have waited a few years, I would be considering the Polish Lynx. The Polish Hellpup is the manufactured Polish clone of the Draco. I understand, they are OK.

    Ouch!
    Do we have any documented failures? Asking since I don't know. I am not being condescending.

    Sam7s are nice but i should have specified that the 900 i said was like my limit. Ive lookd at the lynx but ive also seen the mini jack from the same people if im not mistaken and ive narrowed it down to those two. Ill prob also sbr it or throw a pistol one on it

    A couple thoughts if you're considering an SBR. In the case of an M92, if the traditional UF stock is desired, expect to pay $150 + installation. For a Draco, there are basically NO AIMR stocks available. But a UF, though its authenticity is debatable, would be pretty nice. If you're not a traditionalist, there are many other stock options. For me, there is just something about those two, being made by Zastava and Cugir (military factories) that appeals more to me than the WBP guns.

    I like the newer option of the 1913 rail on the rear trunion to facilitate the addition or removal of a brace/stock.
    needs moar AK
