Simple.

Ask yourself the following question:

Do I want an AK?

If the answer is "Yes", get one.
If the answer is "No", do not get one.
If the answer is "I don't know" wait until you do.

I got one used from a fellow forum member for a great price before the election. I always wanted one and figured that may be my only chance - depending on the election outcome.

Tricked it out to my wishes and I am very pleased with it.

Do you own a REAL rifle yet?  REAL is defined as a rifle with a minimum bore diameter of at least .30 caliber and a projectile of 150-200 grains in weight.  For "Thumpability"!

 

.308 is a REAL rifle

.30-06 is a REAL rifle

7.62 x 54R is a REAL rifle

.35 Remington is a REAL rifle

.30-30 is a REAL rifle

7mm Remington Magnum is a REAL rifle

.45-70 is a REAL rifle

--lots of others, take yer pick!

 

Having a platform that can reach out and touch something with AUTHORITY at DISTANCE (and not be played with by too badly by the wind) is advantageous...

So, a Mosin is a REAL rifle and 6.5 creedmoor is no good for distance. I'll try to remember that.

^^^THIS^^^  The Mosin Nagant is a hell of a weapon! Coupled with the facts that 7.62x54R is widely available

as  milsurp ammo and the rifle is still relatively cheap it's a win win and a no brainer!

Good advice!  I have one, and I'm thinking of getting another.  

 

And an AK has much more utility in real world applications than a "REAL" rifle.

In addition to the 7.62 x 39 fodder that feeds the AK (SKS) platform (which is a REAL rifle as defined by me above), the "cheapest" (depending upon country of origin) would probably be 54R surplus ammo w/corrosive primers?  But consider that one doesn't purchase a REAL rifle to fire multiple boxes of ammo in a single trip to an indoor range at a Zombie target only 10 yards away.....like they do w/ AR's in 5.56!

AK is a REAL rifle Frank.  It fits the criteria:  .30 cal and 150 grains (yes Tula makes JSP 154 grains).  Even the standard plinking round at 123-124 grains is twice the weight of 62 grain 5.56.
