Are you talking about the WASR-2?
5.45x39 if I remember right. They were going for around $350 - $400 before the Obama scare. I wouldn't even bother with those WASR's expecially at $600, plus the stock is unfinished. The only 5.45 you can find is old mil-surplus, and mostly dirty corrosive crap. You can't find any reloadable brass either. My buddy just bought a WASR-3, and he can't find any mags that feed right except the one that came with it. Apparently, the factory just dremels the mag-catch to fit the one they give you, so any other kind, may or may not fit right. I don't know if the WASR-2's are the same, but I tend to stay away from any gun coming from Romania.
Save up a bit more and get a nice AR-15.
