I don't like that kind of folding stock. Interferes with the safety.

I'd rather have an underfolder

So question for you AK owners...where did you acquire yours online or a local store? How much should I expect to pay right now?

I got mine for $350 about a month before the ban expired at a gunstore in Midwest City, OK.

Safety? What safety, is gun, meant to kill.

Another thing to consider is price. You used to be able to get almost 3 AKs for the price of 1 AR. Now that the panic is set in, an AK will cost you over $700 while a decent AR is still in the $900-1100 range. I can't see myself paying over $500 for an AK after owning an AR and a HK91. An AK with an $800 price tag is still a $350 gun, no way around it (Arsenal and what not excluded, I'm talking about mass produced imported AKs).

Depending on the model, $1000+. They are top notch rifles, though.

Dude, even my arsenal (SLR-107FR) had to be sent back due to a canted ass front sight.

If anyone is considering an arsenal, be sure to ask/look for a factory test target. Or risk having to send it back and waiting for about a month for the issue to be fixed.

The hammer forged, chrome lined barrels are a nice feature though...

I have high-end versions of each (a milled receiver Arsenal SAM-9 and a Fulton Armory FAR-15) and both are great guns...but I'd definitely go with the AK here.

If you can give up the "accurate to way out beyond where I can reasonably hit a target anyway" aspect, the AK is the hands-down winner. To me, reliability in the SHTF scenario is king -- and there's no contest between AR/AK reliability when it comes to a "you ain't gonna be able to baby your gun" situation. Combined with the heavier round and there's just no question for me.

Even babying-your-gun-aside, I have had a couple of extraction failures in the AR...exclusively on cheap ammo. I like being able to shoot the cheap stuff, however...and when teh zombies are swarming it would suck to be limited to Lake City stuff.
