Greetings from the not so great state of NY. I’ve been interested in getting an AK for years. Still undecided if I want to buy one or have one built. Have to find out what will be the most cost effective but still retain quality. Looking at a 12.5” pistol modernized with an SLR rail, KOP optic mount, and an AR buffer conversion. Hope to gain insight on the platform and get to talk to you guys about it.
