It's Romanian built. It's the cheapest one you can buy, which is just what I wanted. IMO too many guys try to turn AKs into ARs, but to each his own.

Yeah, I heard that. I have been thinking of getting a rifle, but ended up with just the opposite, got a SIG P226.

How are the ammo costs with the AK? Not too bad, right? Do you do any re-loading of your own?

Ammo is dirt cheap because it's all imported from "the motherland"
Generally speaking, realizing there are lots of different grades of ammo out there, 7.62 x 39 is about half the cost of 5.56 (your typical AR/M4 round). Some guys put 7.62 uppers on their ARs just to shoot cheaper. Plus a lot think it's a better round anyway. There's ongoing debate on that.

I sold all my reloading stuff years ago, when I left the gun hobby for other endeavors for a while. And with the internet and price shopping for ammo, I have no intention of getting back into it.

Sigs are nice
What caliber are you shooting out of it?

Ahhh, I see.

I am just putting 9mm through it, but the cost is getting up there for range time/fun time. Have been thinking of getting a Mosquito for plinking, and fun on the cheap.
