Although I was in the market for a Bulgy 7.62 AK, when I saw this Bulgarian AK-74 with synthetic furniture for $349 this morning I ordered right away. http://www.centerfiresystems.com/akagun74.aspx Free shipping, side rail, and the girl on the phone (Anne) told me these weapons have hammer-forged, chromed-lined barrels (we'll see). Ordered three extra mags at $9.99 each because I ordered with the gun (is that a good price?). Assembled/manufactured by Century Arms (spotty QC record), so I'll have to check this out carefully... I jumped on this as soon as I saw it, because they are going to sell out of these very quick. Anne said they have alot, but expect to sell them out rapidly at this price. They are only $50 more than the Saiga 7.62x39 sporters...http://www.centerfiresystems.com/SAI-762.aspx I've read that 5.45x39 ammo is not as plentiful as 7.62x39. Is it more expensive too? Is 5.45x39 a good round? (I don't know anything about it...) On the upside, with the reduced recoil my wife probably will enjoy shooting this weapon with me at the range more... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
