    I just love the premier location of the safety - it's just so intuitive. Also a huge fan of the excellent sight radius and modularity of the weapons system. The leaf sights might scream 1891, but the parkerized finish is about as 20th century as you could ask for!

    id agree it'd take a special one to be over 1k but I wouldn't mind spending that kinda money to have my old non FIME arsenal back

    I think we will see a growth in US made AKs (like PSA). If we are lucky PSA will do to the AK market what they did to the AR market. I project it'll take 4 uninterupted years (no sandy hooks, etc) and a super pro President. Fingers crossed!

    I worked there when they did. And the Mosin 91\30s were $49.00 on sale every Sunday. They were covered in enough Cosmoline for 5 rifles. And the damn customer never wanted the first one I unboxed . So I'd have to handle half a dozen of them greasy sum*****es before finding the right one.

    As far as AKs and ARs go I say keep the Bushmaster and bite the bullet and buy an AK. I traded a Stag factory AR for a Yugo M70 last year but probably wouldn't be able to do that same deal again considering the glut of ARs in the market now. Y'all just sit back and watch. Pretty soon we will see ads with ARs that were "Thrown in on a trade deal." like a Hi Point or an pump shotgun used to be. Anyway I say why not have both? 1484173520595-769728213.jpg

    IMG_3458.JPG IMG_4193.JPG My evil twins. I call them Cain and Abel. The Draco is still priced right but far from a historical AK. You can dig up some old Romanian pics with some unit rocking them but as a functional AK it's rock solid. Both guns base cost me around 600ish (minus the warden and optics, and upgraded Plum furniture) the Paki Tape - Priceless
