I've owned an Arsenal SA M7 Carbine milled and thought that it was a top tier AK-47 rifle in both function and fit&finish.
I sold it a few years ago to "make ends meet" because I will never part with my SAR-1 Century Romanian import. My SAR-1 shoots a tad bit better. The only draw back is you should replace the trigger group with a Tapco G3.
If I was without an AK, based on what I've seen at the last 50 gunshows since 2008, I'd go with something based on the Saiga. The fit and finish along with quality of parts is pretty top notch. The Romanian SAR-1 ,2 & 3 is very good and will perform just as good but will not look as nice.
