What year did you sell your Wasrs?my first AK was saiga mamny years ago. WASR was the only AK that i ever sold. twice. trash-rifle.
if you are going to drop almost $800 on your first gun, at least get something nice. saiga right now can be had for under that number and slant back vepr for around that.
if you are looking for just a great shooter either will be better option than gypsy trash rifle. certainly not for any price above $600
