Just to clarify, I don't know much about them other than that most gun owners rave about their reliability and simplicity. I also know that if I own one that, according to some, I will eventually go on a violent, bloody rampage due to the guns inherent evil "assault weapon" voodoo power. That being said....help me in finding the most inexpensive yet reliable AK. I know that there are several variations and I would love everyone's insight. Also, if you all could point me in the direction of where to purchase one for the best price, I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
