The AK market in 2021, what to buy?

Recommended Posts

I have always wanted an AK rifle in my life. My friends have them and I have missed out when the good AKs were imported and could be picked up cheap (talking about the Norincos and Saigas). I know prices are slowly coming down and I figure to get one now. The question is which one to buy? I don’t want an American AK and I am looking into the Zastava M70 ZPAP and the WASR 10. Question is which one?

Before the boat accident, I picked up a Saiga Sporting Rifle. The thing was butt ugly and the trigger was in the wrong place and was the worst trigger I ever felt!  The Saiga is made in Izmash and after the conversion it was great!

I would go with a ZPAP M70.  Imported directly from Yugoslavia vs a CAI Import WASR10...

Build a AR 47  upper,  They run like a clock and have better accuracy. JMHO.  

 

Nah. My buddy has one and it’s terrible to shoot. And besides I already have x amount of AR rifles. You need spice in your life

zpap is not AKM pattern, and the wasr is.  just matter of preference i suppose.  price has come down a bit.  classic has a paratrooper wasr for 899ish.

My Izmash trigger is pretty good.

Before or after you converted it and moved the trigger forward?  Mine was fine post conversion.

Mine is in the "original" Saiga position and it is still good for me.  I also currently have a traditional stock on it (which also came with it)  because the pistol grip was part of the adjustable stock.  I didnt want to get the adjustable pinned because I plan to move back to Pennsylvania real real real soon.
