Ok guys,

I guess I've caught AK fever pretty bad. I gotta get one in 7.62! My dilemma is whether I should just buy one or have one built. Is it possible to have a nice AK with poly furniture and maybe a side folder built for say $600-$800 or would I be better off just buying one outright? I know its not a lot to go on, but I can say if I get one..its a shooter no matter how nice/not so nice it is! If the build aspect is possible, who would you recommend and why?

Thanks for entertaining the noob! :shotz:

I'd probably pick up a Polish underfolder kit and have it built on an Armory USA receiver.
Hi Templar,

And if you were not going to build it yourself, who would be your first choice? :goof:

Scott at dpharms.com did have some Tantal and underfolder rifles that he said were really nice. They were only around $550 IIRC, too.

I just reread your post.....

If you want a side folder, then I'd say get in on the special build rifle we're doing, using Hungarian parts (good stuff) and then you can pick up a Romanian or East German side folder and install it.

That would definitely put you in your price range.

If you can live without a side folder, the Polish underfolders are beautiful rifles, and if you can go with a fixed stock, the M7 series from Arsenal Inc. are top notch.

Builders.......there are a lot of good ones out there, In Range, The Firing Line, AK USA are three of the better known and trusted ones.

build one yourself, you'll appricated it more. There not that hard to build. I built these two with a minimal of tools and experience and they both shoot like a dream and look great. McM

JNewt will be here once he finishes his backlog on AR15.COM.

He will be scheduling 10 new builds from this board.
