    The m10 ak is decent quality... Ak's are cheap and reliable but less precise. Both will hit a man sized target at 100yds...

    It comes down to fun factor...handle both and get what fits right...

    Most ak's have fixed stock, while most ar's have adjustable ones...

    I bought my ar first then the ak...

    The stock ak does have a better trigger...

    either a gas piston Ar or a plain jane Ak depending on your budget. 7.62 is getting expensive especially for crappy steel cased ammo I would take a Ak74 over a 47 ammo is about half the cost

    THEY ARE NOT "ASSULT RIFLES"!! They are semi-automatic "RIFLES"! Stop listening to the media and vilinizing firearms.....Just had to throw that in there!

    Stay away from the 223/556 ak's and you'll be fine.

    Sounds like you should just get an AR-15 now, and fool with an AK later.

    Thats how it's going right now for ak's. Vendors on the ak forums have been saying that their phone has been ringing
    of the hook for aks .People are buying into the thoughts of another AWB and are trying to get it before it's gone. The Portland gun show is happening this weekend and it's probally a long shot but they might have something.

    To bad your in Oregon. I got a couple milled ak's I would sell ya.

    Wasrs going for $600. Wow. Times have changed. Good to see you found one and not too bad of a price considering ak's are a hot item lately.

    10 more mags and about 1000 round and your set!

    Dude, just go down to Curts or Northwest Armory (or even Walmart) and get a Colt 6920 or similar if you need an AR right now, or if you want a top AK, wait a few weeks until the Northwest gets some Arsenal SGLs in. You'd be supporting local businesses who will gladly take your money instead of mail order goofballs who don't.

    Do you ever scroll down to the Ore. Rifle classified section ? Lot's of Ar and Ak options, No tax no registration. Just saying.

    Sorry, I misread your original post. It can be read that you were looking for either an AK or an AR, but that reliability was your top concern. At least that's how I read it. I see what you are saying now.

    There's a fellow selling a converted Saiga on the NWFA trader right now around $650. That's a good deal for a conversion and you'd be getting an Ishevsk-made Russian rifle with a few US-made 922 compliance parts thrown in.

    You are SOL on Arsenal AKs right now. I wasn't able to find one locally. I did find an interesting Yugo M92 'krinkov' pistol over at Northwest Armory a few weeks ago. 100% Yugo (none of that 922r crap with a 'pistol') and by adding a sling adapter and sling you'd have a handy close-in half-rifle. Its essentially identical to the M95 that Serbia produces for military use and export except without select fire and underfolding stock. Its an ideal candidate for a side folder SBR.

    Is anybody else confused here besides me? You were looking for an AR but know no interest? You bought a Wasr but want something else. I am not sure you even know what you want. As far as AR and reliability, for $ 1000.00 bones you can get a pretty reliable platform that will also be quite accurate. Gas piston systems work well but I really have never seen the need on an AR unless you are never planning on cleaning it.
