Stay away from "kit guns" that are made with a USA receiver.

If it were me, I would be looking for a MAK90, SAR1, or even a WASR before I would buy any of these kits guns that seems to be all the rage now-a-days.

I consider the Polytech AKS (circa 1999-00) to be the best AK variant out there but they are pretty hard to find. Second would be the MAK90 and is pretty much the best option if you are searching now. MAK's have a well made receiver, fire control group and actually has a finish. Most of what passes for a AK variant now a days looks like it was put together by someone in a highschool shop class. I will pass on the latter no matter what the gun magazines say.

note- I dont have anything against US made trigger parts or other accessories. I simply dislike the build quality and specs on the US made receivers that I have had the occasion to see.
