[QUOTE=MAC21500;51142669]The exception to that will hopefully be PSA and DDI; here are DDI's new offerings: "Hammer Forged Trunnions, bolts and carriers - meet new AKs on the Block - straight from TN based DDI (Destructive Devices Industries ). According to DDI, they are even going to offer hammer forged barrels options as well ($50 upgrade), if those barrels will meet QC standards. Most expensive model, triangle side folder with cold hammer forged barrel option, is project to sell for just under $1k. DDI just stared production of those rifles, so expect to see them at your dealers in around 2 weeks."

Wait so is Century arms ak47 the WASR I'm confused by what the WASR is
[QUOTE=Npc_Hydra3;51142836]Its just going to be a decent gun that I take to the range and shoot and pretty much nothing beyond that.

Do not buy an American parted AK.

Get onw of those.[/QUOTE] Not exactly; the WASR is made in Romania, shipped in as a single stack and opened up to double stack by Century. Their C39V2 is ok, but the RAS 47 is an out of battery detonation lawsuit waiting to happen. the DDI AKs are fine, and the PSA AK is running fine so far, but you can get the WASR or NPAP cheaper than either.
Can you post a link to a reputable website I can buy the WASR and have it sent to my LGS.

So between the two, NPAP and WASR, which should I get? Is the WASR worth the extra $80?
[QUOTE=Levelog;51143204]So between the two, NPAP and WASR, which should I get? Is the WASR worth the extra $80?[/QUOTE] I'd say it is, because you get a chrome lined barrel and the ability to take regular AK furniture; Yugo AKs have neither.
Cool, definitely going WASR then. But that brings me down to my 3 options, vote now! Zing: WASR 10 Info: CZ P07 Urban Grey/Suppressor Useful: CZ EVO Rifle

I have a Yugo M70AB2 imported by Century, and it is so nice. I love to just hold it sometimes. The only complaint I have about it is the lack of an optic rail on the side of the receiver. Besides that (and depending on how you feel, the underfolding stock), it's amazing.
I wanna get an underfolder some day.
I don't like underfolders because there is no way to get a comfortable cheek weld on it. Sidefolders are a bit better.
[QUOTE=FinalHunter;51143649]I held a Century Arms AK last month and fucking loved the feel, the wood was great and the pistol grip was so comfortable. I'd been saving up for a PC build but I'm thinking about putting it into a rifle instead. I'm afraid Hillary is going to come in and place some federal ban on high-capacity magazines like California, Colorado, etc. have.... thoughts..?[/QUOTE] First bit of advice - don't get a Century Arms anything. They're notorious for peddling unreliable garbage. Second, do you want an AK, or an AR? Being military, you're already passingly familiar with the AR, that cuts down on time spent learning to operate the thing. The only real issues I can think of with the AR are A. tight tolerances combined with a direct impingement gas system and B. an underpowered cartridge. Both of those issues can be overcome with proper maintenance and ammo selection. Ammunition is relatively cheap and widely available, and, being widely produced domestically, isn't as vulnerable to future import restrictions as 7.62x39 and 5.45x39. Surplus 5.45, by the way, now faces a broad import restriction, as the 7N6 cartridge was ruled an armor-piercing round. ARs carry a few advantages over the AK - they're a little over a pound lighter in the carbine format (ounces equal pounds, pounds equal pain!), the fire selector/safety is sensibly placed and easy to manipulate, and the rear sight is placed much closer to the eye than on the AK. Most civilian models are extremely modular. Aftermarket upgrades are, of course, available for the AK as well, but that's primarily furniture. Going beyond field-stripping an AK is an involved process, and requires equipment generally found in a machine-shop. An AR can be completely assembled or broken down using hand-tools, albeit specialized ones. There are also a wider variety of different overall rifles available - you can get an AR built like an M4 carbine (it'll come with a slightly longer barrel than an M4, 16 inches is the legal minimum before it's considered an SBR), one built to be a DMR, hell, you can even get one without a stock, so it's legally a pistol (most people plan on putting through NFA paperwork and building those into SBRs). If you're leaning towards an AK, the advantages are widely known. It operates on a gas-piston system, meaning easier cleaning. The tolerances are generous, slightly reducing accuracy but giving a boost to reliability. AKM models accept an inexpensive, hard-hitting cartridge, while AK-74 variants fire an exceptional projectile with similar ballistics to 5.56. As I said before though, 5.45 faces import restrictions. There are still stocks of 7N6 available, but those will eventually run dry, forcing you to rely on less common, modern-production ammo. The rifle does come with a few drawbacks, however. I mentioned this when discussing the AR's relative strengths - the rear-sight is an antiquated configuration (a notch-type placed forward of the ejection port), though mounting an optic can reduce this problem. The safety is, in my opinion, hilariously bad. To chamber a around, you must disengage the safety. Disengaging it also requires you to remove your firing hand from the pistol grip, while the AR's can be manipulated with a simple flick of the thumb. AK's are also generally assembled from foreign parts-kits, making them subject to the frankly asinine restrictions of 922-r. Consider your needs and wants before making a purchase, don't rush it. Take into account what you plan on using your rifle for, figure out what offers you the best fit.

[QUOTE=FinalHunter;51143929]I don't want the AR platform at all. If I'm gonna shell out near a grand for a new rifle I want it to be something more unique. All my buddies have AR's and think they're the shit because they have some special upper or a different scope or whatever, I'm not really into that. Some will want to rip into me for this, but I want something that's as much a show piece as it is for the range which was one reason I was leaning towards an AK with the wooden stock and such. I like 5.56 more than 7.62 just because of the kick but if I want to fire an AR I can ask pretty much half the guys I know. I've always wanted an FN PS90, but I'm not sure I want to sink $1400+ into a gun right now.[/QUOTE] You'll love a 5.45 AK and there is available Wolf commercial ammo and some Hornady, less recoil than an AR in 5.56 The drawback to 5.45 AKs is that good mags are expensive ($25-50) and you'll probably have to mail order your ammo unless your LGS or a gun show has some. Now that 7n6 import was banned, 5.45 is 23 cents a round, just like steel cased 7.62x39 and .223 There are some 5.56 Yugo AKs out there that have a plastic magwell adapter to take AR mags, which is great if you go shoot with your buddies or just want cheap mags. Also cool, but more expensive, the 5.56 VZ-58 (Not an AK) with the same magwell adapter: [img]https://scontent-lga3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/l/t1.0-9/14317587_1099970310040019_2278557977468143248_n.jpg?oh=4194d687b96b61fd23837ba37dadf189&oe=586970A0[/img]

[QUOTE=FinalHunter;51143989]That actually sounds perfect honestly. Do you know of any ones with the wooden stock and handgrip?

isn't it just quite fascinating how US made AKs are mostly poop and garbage compared to the ones put together in the most outback factories in eastern europe?
So I am getting my non-restricted license and I am thinking about getting a Marlin 336W as my first rifle. Has anyone had any experience with this rifle, anything I should know before buying it? The reviews I have read and the videos I have watched all say its a good reliable firearm.

[QUOTE=PrusseLusken;51144855]isn't it just quite fascinating how US made AKs are mostly poop and garbage compared to the ones put together in the most outback factories in eastern europe?[/QUOTE] mostly because US companies just dont [I]get[/I] what an AK is supposed to be. They try making this super "superior" product, when the AK was NEVER designed to be a massively high end rifle. And then they wonder why shit doesn't work well. AK's aren't supposed to have massively tight tolerances, and when you build them to MASSIVELY tight tolerances, it doesn't work nearly as well.

They are per definition less accurate, much harder to disassemble and maintain, force you to use round nose bullets (unless it's a model with a box magazine, such as a Sako Finnwolf), and overall weaker action/mechanism. [editline]3rd October 2016[/editline] didn't the quality of marlin steep recently or am i mixing it with another murican lever action company?
