    Ak-47, two choices

    Went to the lgs today. They only had one AK in 7.62x39. They had a Saiga but I want wood furnature.

    Which would be a better choice?

    1. Used Century Arms Yugo AK with an underfold stock for $699. No chromed barrel but neat looking gun.

    2.(would have to be ordered) Brand new Arsenal Arms AK in 7.62x39 with milled reciever and chromed barrel for $1,000.

    neither. Go find an FFL that will do a cheap transfer and order this:

    Tula Arsenal Marked AK 47 Rifle

    best deal out there right now.

    Milled receivers are a little more desirable than stamped and are generally harder to find. Yugo furniture is not interchangable with other COMBLOC AK's so getting replacement parts you will be limited.

    Never bought a gun in line. How do you go about doing that?

    Go find an FFL in your area that the online vendor can mail the weapon to. Go speak with the FFL and ask him what his transfer fees are. I pay 25 in my area.

    Call the vendor, purchase the weapon. have your FFL fax or e-mail a copy of the FFL to the vendor. Contact the FFL and let them know a weapon is incoming from the vendor. Go pick up the rifle and fill out the form at the FFL as if you bought it from them

    Costs:

    Weapon cost of weapon from online vendor
    Shipping typically free to 25 dollars
    FFL Transfer fee typically 25-65 dollars

    Here is an online FFL finder:

    Search FFL

    With that Tula Arsenal AK, would all the regular AK accessories fit this? I really like the looks of it.

    Going to order the Tula Arsenal AK. Went to three lgs, two wanted $75 and one wanted $30 for a transfer. GM wanted $75 but they are going to see if they can order direct for the same price, $739.

    Now I just have to wait til Wednesday, then my tax $$ should be in. Was hoping to pick one up next week but it seems like getting this one on line will be a much better deal.

    Gander Mountain is a rip off and you should never buy a gun from them. WAY overpriced.

    $30 is not too bad for a transfer but I normally only pay $20 to $25. The shipping and FFL fees won't kill you because you don't pay any sales tax when you buy online (as long as the seller is in a different state).
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I prefer stamped than milled but thats just me. The stamped ak's have been battle proven tough pieces of junk ( thats a compliment) for years.

    Try a local pawn shop that sells guns. Might get a cheaper transfer.
