I had a good SAR-1, and two terrible WASR's. I've also seen a few other terrible WASR's, along with a few other Romanian variants. All in all, I'd pass. They may be reliable, but I've seen too many other problems to be able to recommend them with a clear concience. There are so many other great options, I don't see why people are willing to take a chance.
I'd be a better listener if you stopped talking about stupid crap that doesn't matter.
