    I'm wanting to join AK crew for some cheap plinking. I don't know a whole lot about AKs, and don't really feel like researching right now, but I do have a basic idea of what I want.

    -A basic AK47. Decent quality. Black furniture.

    -A basic AK74. Decent quality. Black funiture.

    For the 47, I was thinking about this one from AimSurplus:

    Bulgarian SSR-85C

    I don't know any of the differences between the different countries, but are these decently good? Like I said, I just want one that's good enough for plinking and will run the cheapest ammo I can find.



    I'd love to have the exact same gun in 5.45x39 as well. Any thoughts on where I might find such a weapon?

    p.s. Why are 5.45 mags so damn expensive?

    The SSR is good, closest to the same gun in 5.45 you'll find would be an Arsenal and it'll be spendy, cheaper route would be a Polish Tantal and throw a black synth stock on it.

    Exactly the info I was looking for. Any idea on the best place to pickup a Tantal right now?
