So, let me preface this with I am a dyed in the wool AR-15 guy (please no flaming me, first rifle I ever had the pleasure of shooting was a registered full-auto AR, kinda left a lasting impression) and as such I know little about the various AK rifles on the market. I do own an AK pistol (Zastava M85 NB, love that it shared ammo and mags with my AR plus it looks like it would make liberals poop their pants) I am wanting to expand out a bit. Unlike some that always post about cutting back calibers, I want to expand the number of calibers I own, so that in the next panic, I can find ammo for SOMETHING that I own. My plan is to make the AK my "mid-length" gun, as my M85 is my short gun and I plan on swapping the barrel on my AR to a 20" barrel and setting it up for long range shooting. I have been looking at a lot of guns recently and it's hard for me to distinguish what about one is better than another. Particulars such as the type of furniture it comes with are unimportant as that can all be changed down the road. I am really looking for something that will go bang every time I pull the trigger and reliably extract, eject and feed. The only thing I know I DON'T want is a VZ2008, because I want something that uses standard AK mags. Lastly, I would like the price before shipping/ffl fees to be $600 or less, figure that gives me lots of options from what I have seen. The ones that have caught my eye so far are: WASR 10/63 Zastava N-PAP I.O. AKM247 So...of those three, what would be the better gun? Any others in my price range I should consider over those?
