I'm pretty sure my next buy will be an AK. Problem is I only know the basics. I could go YouTube but I'd figure I get better advise here. I handled a M70 under folder yesterday at the pawnshop. It's stickered at $649 which is way high. What are the better variants out there considering I don't want anything Chinese. I'd rather buy local but I wouldn't ignore a good online deal. I've never been fond of those itty bitty children's stocks they have on them but I've always liked the folders except the side folder with the wire stock. There a couple of gun stores locally that sell beaucoup of them, just don't want to look like a complete noob next time. Are there any with thicker gauge receivers? Does it even matter?
