What is the difference between these two AK's 7.62 x 39? Which one would you buy and why?
Thanks

    And the cost for each is ?
    I've owned neither...but shot a WASR that left something to be desired...That statement is bit extreme in an AK comment...IMHO for an AK to 'pass' it feeds and fires any ammo and can hit a garbage can top at 100 yds....
    After that it's cost and/or any personal 'need' you have for a specific gun.
    A WAG on cost..If $ 350 does not put the WASR in your hands, condider passing...there are better in that ballpark. Lancaster...IDUNNO.

    Look into a Vector or Ohio Rapid Fire AK. Much better, or one of the Saiga conversions.

    I do have a WASR though. Works, but lacks a good trigger and fit and finish. But it goes bang and makes holes in what I intend it to.

    I agree with wehmacht, i had a sar-1. It would group about 6 inches average with wolf hollow points at 100m through a 4x24mm romanian posp like scope. the ak-74 by Ohio Rapid Fire is a better rifle.

    Mine groups around 3.5-4 inches with goo brass ammo. An AK is not a tack driver, its a sheet metal lead hose.
