    Looking for AKs and would like to pick one one locally, but shipping is possible. I would prefer the wood, but am kinda open, just want a nice Finish (no WASR10) since this will be my only AK

    I found this locally at MGS - $479

    YUGO ZASTAVA M70 AK47 UNDER-FOLDER RIFLE

    Century 1.5 mil. reinforced trunion receiver, underfolder stock, slant break, bayonet lug, grenade launching sight, and (2) 30 round magazine.

    ________________________________________________

    Other options are...

    Vector Arms - $500 online and have to ship

    or Armory online - $500-$530

    Where else is a good place online to buy an AK for ~500.. I saw Atlantic Firearms has them Vector for the same price.. anywhere else.

    MGS did my AK pistol (well, they sold it to me anyway). The work was actually done by wise lite arms.

    Yeah they have a Polish Arms AK, is this worth the money, they are about a 45min drive from me, I bought my Mosin there before

    I dunno. I'm an AK newb. It looks like it's good quality, but a little expensive.

    Ehh, I'd probably go with the Yugo. It's like 125 cheaper. The Polish one does have a chrome lined barrel if that really matters. The Polish ones are nicer than the Yugos IMO but I don't know if I'd pay 600 for one. I'm building mine so it only ended up costing me about $350 :hs:

    Any problems with Yugos? The finish isnt as nice, but locally is a plus.. or should I wait till the end of April and hit up a gunshow?

    I've never actually shot a Yugo so I can't compare it that way. I know vettefan52 had/has one. I haven't heard any complaints with them, finish or reliability issues. I'm sure it's a fine rifle. The non-chrome lined thing isnt really a big deal unless you're shooting a ton of corrosive ammo. Yeah it will make the barrel last longer but I doubt you're going to shoot it out.

    I've handled them and they feel sturdy :dunno:

    problems with the CENTURY yugo as shown in the picture: they arent including G2 trigger groups anymore, you get a super shitty trigger slap happy FCG, you cant get a good cheek weld with the underfolder stock either. that polymer furniture is super gay too, cheaply built and just ugh. i wouldnt pay that much for a century rifle either. rear sights are canted too, more often then not.

    the fixed stock yugo is much nicer to shoot. i had one of each but sold them off for other things, the underfolder was just tough to shoot though.

    :cool: Yeah I doubt this will be shot all that much.. I have only about 6-700rds or so through my AR since I bought it over a year ago :hs:

    Good info I needed to know :bigthumb:

    What about the Polish one linked above for $595?

    the polish rifles are very nice, but again with the underfolder and cheekweld. its a cool rifle, but not if you plan on shooting for accuracy(if you do at all with an ak) id get something with a G2 as well.

    edit: i see thats the fixed stock. id get that one for 500. polish are very very nice ak's

    I'd go with the polish, century yugo's aren't so hot like a couple people mentioned, no chrome line either on them. Like vette pointed cannt get to good of a cheek weld on them but I still do ok with my underfolder.

    This is just going to be plinking at the range.. Accuracy would prolly be my AR, but this is more just for fun

    Is that a good price for Polish (also considering no shipping or FFL would be needed)?

    I might stretch the budget and buy local.. even $500 online is going to be $20-30 shipping + $10 FFL and I would have to wait.

    This would be $595 + tax and have it the same day. I would have to see, but I think I could swing that.

    I've been to MGS....honestly, I didn't see any AKs there that looked to be
    any better than the Century that idleprocess got for 1/2 the price. That place
    sort of freaks me out actually.

    Military Gun Supply is sort of ... creepy. I was halfway expecting some mafioso to walk in and clear the place out for "private business" since it had the feel of being a front.

    They did have a crapload of Polish underfolders there. $600 for an AK with one magazine seemed a bit steep to me, so I declined to buy one from them, but I didn't know the AK market too well at the time.

    I found their selection of 7.62x39 to be almost nonexistent. They did have a wide variety of AK magazines.

    If you're looking for a SKS or Mosin, they have a slow of those along with a number of other surplus rifles and a handful of "sporterized" Saiga-12s.
