AK-47 quesiton - Which country did it best?

So i'm looking at AKs, and trying to pick which one is better. Which country did it the best? the Romanian WASR-10s are certainly easier to find, but is say, a Norinco MAK90 worth, say $300 more?

The two I'm looking at right now are a Romanian WASR-10 with 4 preban 30rd mags, for 450 versus a chinese MAK90 with 5 preban 30rd mags, 1 10rd mag and 1 100rd (though may be 75rd) drum mag for 750. is the extra 300 worth it for a better made weapon? My Class A hasn't gotten here yet, so this is really conjecture at this point, but I'm curious. Which country, which has legal AKs in the US, did it the best?

The only way you can get a Russian AK is buy a Saiga and convert it or buy one of the rare Russian demilled parts kits that somehow made it here and Build it. 99.9% of the time its a milled receiver and those are bitch to build or so I hear.

To the OP, don't get a WASR they are slightly cheaper, but you get what you pay for. I ditched mine as soon as I built an AK. No dimples, the mag wobbles like a drunk whore and its a Century gun, which means drunk monkeys built it and you will most likely get canted sights. Spend a little extra bread and buy a Bulgarian, Chinese or a real Romanian. Or the most satisfying of all...build your own. Nothing quite like firing a weapon you built.

this, plus the WASR AK's have trigger slap which doesn't feel too good.

It requires some tools most people probably don't have just laying around. Join an AK forum and look around and see if the are having any build parties in your area.

The trigger Century uses slaps your finger when you shoot it. I think its a simple matter of a little filing, but I just replaced the trigger on mine.

The best AK is the cheapest one you can find with straight sights/gas block, mag dimples and a G2 or better trigger.

I'm a fan of stock but its just so much easier to put an aftermarket trigger in there and know that its going to work like a charm.

I dunno if they will have one of their sales again, but I hopped on a sale at K-Var.com and got the SGL21-73 for 525.00 shipped. They ran it like 3-4 months ago and the prices slowly started climbing back to where they are now.

Before buying this, I was going to just buy a standard 7.62x39 Saiga and do the conversion myself, but this was just too hard to pass up!

I am going to funnel the planned conversion money to a Saiga .308, to restore that back to a pistol grip configuration.
