Of course I could have put this in a tech forum, but then I wouldnt have been able to let the GD light shine!!


Ive got numerous AR15's, SCAR's and a lonely AK74. So, Ive been thinking about adding a 47 to the mix. I have zero ammunition, magazines or parts on hand for one, so I would be starting fresh. Would it see as much use as some of my other rifle? Probably not. Do I care? Not really. I like the 74 that Ive got, but probably only shoot 100 or so rounds through it a year. So I cant say that a 47 would get much more use than that. The 74 is a Century (yeah, yeah) that I got a good deal on a few years back and have had zero reliability issue with it in the 7 or 800 rounds that Ive put through it.


Do I find an Arsenal, or other decent manufactured brand, or go with something else?

Im drinking Blue Moon tonight, and am having trouble thinking for myself. Thanks for the help.

Well IMO, they are over priced right now, but I don't see the price coming down. It's a fun weapon, and the libs absolutely HATE them, so, yes, go ahead and get you an AK.

Seems like the definition of the wod "need", has changed in my lifetime.

No, you don't "need" an AK47, you already have stuff just as good.

Now, if you "want" an AK47, that is another matter.

Really, only you can make that decision.

By all means yes, no collection is complete without one. I shoot mine almost every weekend, there's no other center fire that you can shoot as cheap except the 74 you already have.

Get an AMD-65 from Buds last time I checked they were $450. With the brake its loud, has awesome fireballs and not much recoil making it lots of fun to shoot.

Shit what's even one of them going for now?

Mine is my least precious gun. Shoots fine, but it's ugly. The ultimate expression of the AK, it's lowest common denominator.
