I'm an AK addict, got my share of stamped AKM's and AK-74's but the milled versions (Type 2 and Type 3) are what really get my attention.

What's currently the best AK on the market?  By best I mean reliable and go to rifle.

I Current have an Arsenal SLG-21 with a tapco t6 adjustable stock....Thinking about swapping back to the original stock because 99% of the time  I keep the stock at the shortest point.

I want to know what you guys think.

Thanks in advance.

It's in parts. Haven't had time outside of school or work to get anything done, plus my building buddy isn't in the greatest of health. Hopefully before or during summertime, it shall be done.

Till then, I manually perma blued and wore out the receiver to match the parts kit (NoDak Spud NDS-3). I will probably have to re-do it after the rifle is built, but I don't mind.


Romanian parts kit from 1963. Non Romy-G kit.

My AKs:



The top is a CAI imported Bulgarian built on an Elk River receiver. I replaced the crappy plastic furniture with wood that I refinished. The bottom is my brand new converted Saiga! The Bulgy isn't mine for much longer, I'm shipping her to a friend in CA tomorrow. That's why if you'll look closely there is a bullet button covering the mag release.

The Saiga has a rail! I can't wait to put a red dot on it :D
I have a few guns.

It's been said that the harmonics (or sumthin) of the x39 round works best with the short AMD barrel. I built one on a NDS rec'r, original barrel, absolutely love it.

Two screws, seriously that's it.

Really like the Vltor extension, gonna be hard to give it up when I replace it with the finished frankenstock, the length fully extended is really nice, and shooting it was much more pleasant. The red dot works fine for me that far forward, but the whole thing is definitely front-heavy, it was to start with and the red-dot just makes it more so. The AFG isn't staying, that's going on the wife's AR when her new upper comes in, but since the rail was available, decided to see how it looked :th_thicon_idea:

Hey guys!

We just came back from the shooting range, we were measuring Tactical reloads with AK, AR and G3. The AK reload was surprisingly quite smooth. Check it out!
