AK buyers guide by Oldannyboy37.
Great job Danny. I definitely learned from your article.
My suggestions: If this is a general AK buyers guide I would maybe mention something about the different types of variants, such as AKM, AK74, maybe even the newer and more rare AK100 series, etc for the ones who think all AK's are AK's. Maybe something about barrel threading and muzzle brakes. Great job though I must say.
I don't know much about the AK platform, and found this information useful. Is there any way to fix the front sight cant if you have that problem?

Arsenals are nice rifles, but I do think they are over priced; coupled with that fact that K-var normally over prices their stuff anyways.
I'd suggest reading the guide I wrote and deciding what you want out of the AK you're looking at. If you decide don't mind paying the price for an Arsenal for the assured quality that's fine, but if you decide to look around for one my guide will teach you how to identify a well made AK regardless of manufacturer
Remember that any AK variant can be a good quality gun; they may not have the nice fit and finish of the Arsenal, but they'll still run well. It's just a matter of examining the quality of the rifle before you buy it.
Here's an example of what I mean: http://www.zombiesurvivalwiki.com/photo/13329963/The+ODB47
That's my personal fighting rifle. I only paid a dime over $500 for it, and it's every bit as capable as an Arsenal (the fit and finish just aren't as nice).
Contact me on here if you have any questions.
