There is no debate man, do it! You will not regret it.
The WASR is a good choice, BTW welcome to the group. If you don't mind me asking, are you on the JK Forum? I remember seeing your avatar on there.View attachment 140337 View attachment 140345
This is one of my 2 AK's. This WASR 10 I picked up brand new last fall. The dealer just wanted to sell it and I got it cheap. No I don't sleep with it! My other AK is a C39v2. The C39v2 has between 500-600 rounds and zero issues, but I just seem to always grab the WASR when I go shoot.
