Sorry for the Lord of the Rings reference, for some reason that popped into my mind, and don't worry, this isn't a "which rifle is the best" thread. . . sort of. So I'm a pretty tight budget and I can really only justify owning one rifle and one handgun. I'm pretty happy with the handgun I own(HK45) but the rifle I have is a Saiga 223 and it's OK. I converted it myself so it has a pistol grip and improved trigger but all in all it's not what I would want for my only rifle. So my budget is probably about $1200 at the absolute max and I would prefer to not even pay that. But I'm in fits settling on a solid tactical type rifle that is a good, fun plinking, all around type gun. I would appreciate all the help I can get. Here is a short list of what I am considering to see where I stand: 1. Stag Model 8, maybe with the plus package( what I'm leaning towards) 2. Czech Sa vz. 58 ( looks nice enough and a good price) 3. FAL type rifle, like a PTR 91 or something (too much gun?) 4. Arsenal AK (too close to what I have?) Any other ideas? Just stick with what I have? Thanks for the help!
