    My first AK-47

    I took out my entire gun collection, which consisted of 3 handguns (2 1911A1s and an XD9), and a Remington 870 Express Magnum. I thought to myself "something is missing." Then it dawned on me that I didn't have a semi-automatic "battle rifle". I had a bit of disposable income, so I decided to go out and find an AK-47 since I've always liked them. I went to 3 different gun shops, and the third one is always a charm. I found a Romanian AK-47 that has never been fired for $415. It came with a pouch, cleaning kit, bayonet, and a sling, which I find to be really cool. I think this bad boy will become my primary SHTF rifle. I've always wanted an AK-47, and now I have one!

    Good job - no one should be without one

    Scan around a bit and you should find some places selling 30 rounders at very good prices.

    I think I pretty much want to keep it as is. I like the basic look better without all the gadgets and gizmos.

    I personally cannot imagine what life would be like without at least one AK47

    Congratulations! Great worthwhile addition.

    Last match I was in,two AK's came in 1st and 3rd. (I came in 3rd w/ my AK) We beat $1500-$2000 AR's and a $1500 PS90.

    Congrats on a very worthwhile purchase. ---------

    Good buy, the romanian AK is a very good firearm for the money, enjoy it. Hopefully 7.62x39 prices will come down some day, or at least become widely available again.

    Another Romanian fan here. Congrats on the purchase. Hopefully, you'll not catch the AK bug, but if you do, I'd recommend a Yugo Underfolder for AK #2.

    Good choice I had one that was very similar.

    Like that laminated wood stock, just like on the one I had.

    Good choice on the Romanian sir.

    The shop I hang at and help out for a few days a week when I'm home and not training carries the Romanians and Yugo [ usually folders on the Yugo's ].

    They fly out of the shop when we have them.

    I just picked up a like new "cherry picked" Arsenal milled receiver AK with wood furniture for myself two weeks ago as well as two Norinco SKS's that came in that were like new as well.

    Best I can find on ammo is ammoman.com. Right now it's 179.00 per case [ 1K ] delivered to the door. Grabbed two cases just last week from Eric.
