      Lmao they're a trash company that sold them at a 5x markup. Even when Saigas were $300, Shartsenal was selling their Izhmash knockoffs for $1500+. I wouldn't even look at the prices these days, if you pay more than $1k for a gun you're a moron, $2k and you're a double moron. You're nor even getting a real AK100 with an Arsenal since Izhmash sued them and they had to make their designs proprietary. Yes, I rather would get 4 PSAs than fricking spray painted bulgarshit.

          I converted mine with a drill moron. I wasn't about to pay $600 for a furniture kit, that was a lot of money before israelites wrecked the economy. I mainly opted for the sporter because you could get a universal stock mount that attached to the extra receiver holes and fold whatever stock you want in whatever direction you want. I still don't give a shit if it looks cool to a bunch of autists on an anime forum, Russian furniture configurations fricking suck.

      Also I think you vastly underestimate how much gun culture has changed within the last 15 years. Shit, even 5 years ago gun culture was different. Gun culture went from being a whitetail deer hunting community that had guns to now every other person has an AR. 10-15 years ago, it'd be like "oh did you hear about Bob? He has one of them AR-15's!" To now all of my male coworkers have one lol. Gun culture went from "umm umm noo guys, these aren't assault rifles! Pls stop calling them that! They're sporting rifles for sporting purposes! Cmon liberals please believe me, please!" To what it is now "yeah they are assault rifles, what the frick are you going to do about it pussy?" I still remember that cringe video Robski from AKoperatorsUnion with his ultra thick Polish accent "AK47 isn't weapon! Is tool you guys! See?? It is tool not weapon!" That was the absolute state of gun culture back then.

        I'm not going to partake in the rabid insulting going on from both sides of this thread so instead I'm just going to say that I think you're terribly misinformed. PSA is a generally good company with a good track record for quality despite their price point. That's it. They're 'pretty good' for the price. I've also heard nothing but good things about their slightly higher end line of guns, which shows their potential as a manufacturer. They've proven with their Sabre and Jakl that they can be competitive with the other major names. They're a very solid choice for entry guns and even 'actual, decent' guns as you put it.

            you do realize that what makes them good entry guns is the price. That's the only reason I would classify it as "entry level". Beyond that, the quality is excellent and should not be understated. Also, you neglect my point about their higher end line, which is also no joke and still remains relatively cheap for the quality.
            Still very misinformed.

      They're a lot better than they used to be but I still see plenty of posts various places at least once a week of somebody getting one with completely unacceptable QC issues.

      The 7.62 ones seem to be the best (and they've been making those the longest so I guess it makes sense) and other calibers seem to be more likely to have issues, but none of them are guaranteed to be issue free.
      Honestly I get the impression that a lot of the people who have them and are very happy with them simply do not shoot the guns very much. That's not to say that they're all lemons or whatever but a guy who buys it and spends the next 10 years putting 1000 rounds through it isn't necessarily gonna notice a heat treat or rivet issue like he would even putting 1000 rds through it a year.

I only bought a GF3 with the nitride barrel because it's a beater gun for the range, but it's been a lot of fun and fills that role just fine. Spending north of $1200 to get a nice AK doesn't make sense to me when you can put that money into a more practical rifle.

Yeah steel is better than aluminum, even cast iron is better when it comes to engine blocks. But if the plastic assault rifles aren’t running into any serious problems, why is aluminum such a big issue? To my understanding only certain areas have to be more sturdy to handle high pressures

        They don't disclose what grade of steel their AKs are made of which is concerning considering they beat themselves up internally early on. But on some of their guns they disclose the metal, for example the Dagger slide is all stainless steel. That's why it's so much cheaper than a Glock, they're making it out of a laughably shitty metal that guns shouldn't be made out of.

              So I dropped in a SS Lone Wolf barrel today to replace the threaded one it came with. Should a drop in barrel be a softer steel than the frame? Vise versa? Does it matter? No idea what the LW barrel steel is either but I'll look.

      You planning on storming Luhansk? No? Doesn't matter and won't matter until far in excess of 10 000 rounds.

        You're trying to reason with morons that probably would pay for every add on the car dealership tries to sell them so that their car is "the best".

    What's the point of getting PSA's Krink over PSA's AK pistol? They're both about the same size and neither are "authentic" AKs. Am I missing something or does PSA's Krink do something different than their AK pistols?

    PSA's been neglecting their GF3's lately, or at least the one with the Polish style folder I've been looking at. This is like the third or fourth week of it being out of stock, they usually never take this long to restock, their Jakl's go out of stock and back into stock 3 times a week for comparison.

    If worried about PSA quality, I'd say buy a kit that comes with a FN barrel, and you're good to go. Switch out the bolt carrier group if you are more worried. The barrel, bolt, and bolt carrier are the most important things in a gun followed closely by the magazine. I have not tested the PSA kit I bought enough for any reasonable conclusions. I already have a SLR-107 and a WASR, why do I need to buy one of their aks? What matters the most to me is ammo. I want 7.62x39, and I want it now!
