    I would only look at the milled type SKS's or a MAC90 as most can be had for around 275.00 to 350.00. the last time I looked.

    Yoy might want to check out www.aimsurplus.com
    or www.jgsales.com they have them for at good prices.
    I bought one from a gentleman on another forum and it is a fun
    gun to shoot and its in 7.62x39 they dont make a 7.63x39.
    Oh it a Yugo with grenade launcher and bayonet built in the 70's
    and was unissued.
    Or you could get a RUGER mini 14 ,its in .223 and you can add all kinds of goodies
    to it down the road later
    Familys that shoot together have good fields of cover fire.

    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty, suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately nothing will preserve it but downright force. whenever you give up that force,
    you are inevitably ruined.

    The last Mini 14's I looked at were approaching the price of AR-15's. For the price a SKS is a great weapon and there are a ton of aftermarket parts available for it as well.

    And I know you said not to bring up the AR, but they can be built for a fairly reasonable price. Much less than buying one already put together.

    SKS are good, but I would suggest against a Yugo 59/66. The extra junk on the gas system gives plenty of places for leaks and other issues. Find a Yugo model 59 if you can, it doesn't have the odd upper gas piston. The Yugos don't have chrome-plated chambers or bores, which can be a consideration. The Chinese made decent SKS rifles, and there are a few other different countries that made them. I would suggest a Chinese, as they are usually the cheapest.

    WASR-10s run about $450ish and are a good basic AK-47 type rifle.

    Or how about an AR-15 for $570?

    If there is one thing I've learned, it's that ARs are picky about ammo. Good AR ammo is also not cheap. Running the cheap steel-cased ammunition in ARs will usually destroy extractors. I would suggest against anyone buying an AR that minds paying almost 50% more per round minimum for acceptable AR rounds over AK rounds.

    I own an AR, and as much as I like it, I don't shoot it very often because of this problem.

    WASR10 or WASR2 can be found cheap. I paid about $300 for my 10, but that was about 6 mos. ago. AIM Surplus has the 2's for $289 every once in awhile.
