    Not much of an AK-47 expert (there are a number of them here, BTW), but I got a MAK-90 I am still learning about.

    Try a "Search" - that'll provide a lot of threads.

    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    Other than the fact that the gun is 5.45x39mm, it's really no different than any 7.62x39mm stamped AK....durable, reliable, less accurate than most AR's.

    Good quality commercial "AK-74's" include those made by Arsenal, Inc., AK-USA, Arsenal USA, and Krebs (and I'm sure others that I can't think of right now).

    There were serious shortages in the 5.45x39 ammo, but things seem to have gotten better. That may be an issue if this is your only Semi-auto rifle.

    I've compared the SARI and SARII side by side, and the SARII is much easier to shoot and could easily engage targets at 400yds, which was way out of the range of most 30 cal AKs. It is possible hit targets at 400yds with a 7.62x39, but it is much harder.
