    -Good CHF barrel with a nice aluminum "railed" handguard - i like M-LOK
    -Magpul flip-up sites
    -Good ergonomic Magpul Stock
    -Polish the trigger or get a 2-stage
    -Optics will quadruple the initial price - aim point or MRO = 400-500
    -Also can caliber convert to almost anything imaginable
    -50 or so mags just incase

    In all seriousness, enjoy! These things are as addictive as Glocks...and multiply similarly.

    This thing poked the same hole at 60yds back at Christmas 3 times before the $21 red dot shook loose. For the bolt? Several out there. I got the bolt only from these guys. Hard to find the damned thing. Their website sucks. They ship fast. I like the looks of the chrome set up. Out of stock since I found them. Maybe never again?

    I went with 300BO upper since parts are common to the 556 AR. My buddy wants to do a 7.62x39 build, so we are looking for all the real world reports we can get.

    My feeling: if you want to shoot shitty surplus 7.62x39, get an AK/SKS ... If you buy good quality 7.62x39, you may as well buy 300BO and have more weight options and more commonality

    I have a I.O. AK. It beat the snot out of my shoulder. The midlength AR47 is a bunch lighter on the recoil. I have shot some of the Yugo corrosive. I see no point to buying it. I buy the lacquered Wolf military, Golden Tiger etc. This is supposed to be good stuff. SGA TulaAmmo 7.62x39 8m3 HP ClearBallistics Test - The AK Files Forums

    My 47's are just like my AR15's. BAD levers, Magpul furniture, etc. 300 is too much $$$ I am willing the PSA upper is a bunch more accurate than the AK.
