I think I might want one just to have. I am thinking of trading or sell my ORF AKS74 so I may start looking for a 5.65 AK. Doesnt look like there is much out there. Thanks!

The wasr 3 are still out there if you don't mind the lack of threaded muzzles. They use the steel german mags that are plentiful right now. If I didn't decide to get the sam 5 I would have gotten one of them.

There is one more option, if you want a challenge, the Saiga in 5.56.

It can be modified to use Bulgie plastic mags very easily.

Of course it will cost you to do everything and make it look like an AK, but you will have a Russian rifle and they are very nice.

For the cost conscious, the way to go is the WASR 3 and Weiger mags.
They are not bad, but being a Romie, you will have to tweak it to make it just right.

I'm making one.

Barrel, bolt and carrier from a chinese rifle. OOW 5.45 receiver. Global trunnion with the little hole for the chinese barrel, funky psuedo krink gas block/front sight and a bunch of clear magazines from Kvar.

Slowly but surely.. now I need to make a rivet squeezer that will fit in that little 19mm hole...




That's probably not what you were asking about, I'm sure.
