Well, the gun show arrives at the Valley Forge Convention Center next weekend. I have been considering the purchase of an evil rifle for a while. I had been thinking about an AR-type but have recently wondered about an AK-type of rifle. The AK's seem to be about half of the price of an AR. I had seen an AK-type at a local gun store and, having absolutely NO idea about them at all, I posted a thread in the Kalashnikov Forum asking for suggestions for a relatively short-barreled, folding-stock AK type of rifle.....the more "evil" features, the better! The rifle that I had seen at the gun store had a folding stock, what appeared to be a laminated wood foregrip and a black pistol-grip. They were asking $559 for it. Of course, being completely ignorant about the rifle, I had though I could ask if that seemed like a fair price. Apparently, there are more variations of that rifle than Anna Nicole Smith had lovers! Everyone who responded to my post was very helpful, as is usual on GT. The problem I have is that I have been overwhelmed with a wealth of information....and at my age, I can no longer process that much data! ARGH!!
Anyway, to put an end to this post, I guess I'm asking if any PA Glockers know of any helpful, reputable dealers who will be at the Valley Forge show who could assist me in picking an evil rifle? And, not to start a war, but are AR rifles worth the extra money compared to an AK rifle?
Thanks, in advance, for taking the time just to read this!!
thats really expensive....if you keep looking around you can get a good ak for $300-$400
personally id go with an ar type rifle just for the simple fact you can do SOOOO much differnt stuff to it...considering the upper receiver and lower receiver come apart and you can get different uppers with different barrels for all sorts of different applications and still just have one gun but a different barrel for a different purpose and still keep all your scopes and sights dead on! One day you may feel like long range so you slap on your upper with a heavy free float stainless bull barrel and go tot he range..next day maybe close quarter type stuff so you slap on your other upper with a 16" barrel with all your flashlights and lasers and other gadgets your dont need.
