Well I was piddling around in a local pawn shop and (just for kicks) looked at a WASR AK-47 clone. In the past I wouldn't even considor such a primitive cheap looking weapon but this one was different. The fit and finish seemed far better than any other Romy I have encountered. No canted front sight or gas tube. Very little magazine wobble. Has an under folding stock and nice looking wood on the fore grips all for the low price of $389. They also had a somewhat better looking AK clone made by a company I've never heard of (Golden State) for $419. I have already made up my mind to purchase one or the other. Does anyone know anything about the Golden State brand?
