I'm within a month or two buying my 1st semi auto.
I've decided on the AK47, and I've been told that "If I can afford to spend the money on a milled receiver, I should get one". The reasons explained were that the milled receivers were stronger, and would last longer since they're milled from a block of metal as opposed to being stamped. I can understand the logic but I can't help wondering if the stamped receivers are just as good (from a practical point of view?) Hopefully some of you guys can shed some light on tha issue for me?
Every now and then I hear that the cheaper Yugo AKs are lower in quality? Is there is any truth to that, and if so, which AKs have the better quality reputations? My gut tells me to just pick one but stay away from the cheapest model.
The last question has to do with the newer refurbished AK47s. So many times newer isn't always better in terms of quality? Seems like everyone wants to shave a penny off of the production costs. Are the older models better made or are the newer refirbuished models just as good?
Thx in advance for your answers :thumb:
