After completing my AR build and loving the result, it's time to do an AK build now. I know that I want something classic, so not sure about under or side folders ... but that's what I want to know from you AK experts: What models do you favor and why? What models do you avoid and why? Another thing, I'm going to build from the ground up, starting w/ a flat. Any pointers or good links you can pass along is very much appreciated! What prompted this are statements I've heard and read such as: - Romy's are cheap and you get what you pay for - Chinese are very good - Egyptian Maadi's were made with the same machinery for Russian AK's - .... help, I'm a bit confused as I start.. Thanks! PS: Some of you will rightly ask: "What will you be using it for?" ... ok, mostly for target shooting, and maybe hog-hunting in TX. For home defense it seems like a bit of overkill (literally), so I use my 9mm and 12g for that.
