    Note to self and everyone, buy cheap shit and use it forever and if/when it breaks order a new one from Amazon and return the old one. Don't be like OP and waste all your money on toys.

    If you weren't mentally ill, you'll know that the cleaning kit from the AK can be used as a sight tool

    Yeah, but at the same time no one should discount at least STARTING with cheap shit first. I've got a bunch of nice shit now, but all the stuff I'm happiest with is stuff where I got a relatively cheap (though not so much so as to be useless) concept prover first, then found out if I even liked the class of thing at all. LPVOs are a good example: yeah a $2400 atacr is better then a $300 swampfox, it's got better light transmission, less chromatic aberration, closer to real 1x. But it's not 8x better, it's not a fundamental difference, the eyebox isn't 8x the size, it doesn't adjust itself with a remote. If you just hate the swampfox period and prefer a holo and flip mag or fixed mag and rds, I don't think spending another two grand will help. A nice lpvo is still an lpvo. Or for my earpro (and earbuds for that matter), I first tried out cheap foamies for awhile and then some like, $50 buds. Because some people just can't stand stuff in their ears for a long time, period. Turns out I'm not one of them, but if you just hate that something that produces better sound isn't going to help with the "stuff in your ear" part.

    So yeah for sure look for minimal basic quality, and once you're ready to pull the trigger for sure consider saving for what you really want. But don't necessarily jump straight to the high end either. Advice my older more experienced colleagues at work gave has always been good to me, buy basic, then see if you actually use it enough to break it, or if it ends up sitting in a drawer for years at a time. If you break it and instantly miss it badly, next time buy real nice. If you're like "ah, guess maybe I'll get a new one, someday, when I think of it" then buy cheap again.

      Also some nice stuff is purely aimed at a commercial context. Like I've got a $15 bore laser cartridge. It's fine for the once or twice a year I'm trying to speed up zeroing. It lets me get on paper. The fancy magnetic green laser $150 ones certainly work and are nice, but they only are worth it if you're doing hundreds/thousands a year like at a shop and minutes saved adds up to actual billable hours.

      someone once told me :
      "buy the cheap shit, use it. if it breaks, then buy the better one.
      if you dont use the cheap one enough to break it, then you saved the price difference. if you do, well, you just lost the price of the cheap one"

    Eh, bought a 2 TRS-25s back when they had the rebate sale at $35 a pop. Those were cheap as shit and they're still kicking on my poorgay AR and poorgay Turkshit Shotgun after somewhere around 2k rounds in the AR and 1k rounds in the roach gun.
    You can buy cheap, just need to know what you're buying.

    >buying tools to work on an AK
    You literally just need a vice, a flathead screwdriver, and a really big hammer (the screwdriver doubles as a chisel]

      not op but before I wised up and stopped buying from scamazon like 4-5 years ago one of the final straws was ordering an "all metal" part that was literally plastic with a (sloppy) silver paint job. all "5 star!" reviews of course, though the first 1 stars appearing shortly after mine arrived which is how these scams worked.

      writing this, honestly sorta wish i saved it. was so fricking brazenly shitty it was actually hilarious. FINEST METALLICOID MATERIALS 150 IN ONE tier.

        I never buy anything suspicious looking unless it has at least one written review that isn't just Rajesh banging away at the keyboard

    Buy the Magnamatic one for $35. The standard front sight adjuster is dogshit.
