you could get an arsenal AK, which is actually saiga parts converted into an AK rifle.. so youll have your saiga, but professionally converted into a high quality AK rifle

I think the main question is whether you want the Saiga or the already converted one?

I went with the stock one and did the conversion myself. Honestly, it was easier and more enjoyable then I had anticipated.

If you want the converted one this looks like a pretty good deal. But, I am not familiar with the company M.. Whatever they are...

The M10 is a fine rifle if you don't know how to inspect an AK. It will shoot thousands of rounds reliably for a long, long time.

That said, it's a dressed up WASR. Personally, I'd take a WASR 10/63 any day over the M10 and do the mods myself. As long as the WASR was built properly, it will run as well as any Arsenal rifle out there (won't look as pretty though....).

Again, the M10 will run just fine but it wouldn't be my first pick. I'd take one of these instead, buy whatever UTG rail you want for $40 and call it a day.

I purchased the M10 a few months ago. It's a great rifle. The only issue I found is that the side scope mount is higher than on other Ak variants. It shoots great, has no screwed up sights, and has been a blast to shoot. For an extra $100 i'd definitely go with the M10 over the WASR. Especially if your planning on putting a rail on the front end anyways. There is nothing wrong with them but I would never buy a WASR I couldn't inspect before putting down my hard earned money. Just too many horror stories.

I've got a wasr-10 with a saw furniture kit on it.... Accurate and dependable. What else could I want (other then about a hundred more guns)
