Is it just me or are these types of rifles flying off the shelves? The three is was supposed to look at today sold yesterday and the 1 in the gun store sold this weekend. That makes 4 that I was going to look into. BTW there is pretty much no milled receivers anymore should of bought one as soon as the ban lifted. If the total price is going to get over $1000 it would be better to ger an AR anyway as the cheaper aspect dries up.

I personally like the AK over most ARs (the Lewis Machine and Tool Ars just speak to me). I wanted a Vepr K for a long time and still do, although they are quite hefty, but hey that will soak up recoil even more. Then I wanted to screw build one for a Rommy kit from Tapco with a Krebs aluminum quad-rail forearm, Ergo grip and Ace folding skelton stock from DSA. I would have been fun to build my own but I decided to hold off b/c I'm getting married soon and didn't think I needed to get involved in a +/- $1000 build.
I will probably just buy a Vepr K or maybe a Springfield M1A Socom as my first none .22 rifle. Can't wait but a GLOCK 17 is next.
