Which of these AKs should I buy?

Want to get an AK in 7.62x39 - already have a very nice stamped one made by Gunplumber in 5.45x39

I have the opportunity to buy a very lightly used Arsenal SA M7 for $1200 locally. But I have also seen the new Arsenal Saiga SGL21 rifles for $740 shipped.

So, I assume the SA M7 will weigh more due to it being milled. But other than the weight, is there a huge difference in accuracy, trigger feel/pull, etc. between the two? I mean, is there really a $460 difference?

Milled offers no advantage over stamped. Get the SGL.

Sort of what I was wondering - plus the SGL comes with a warranty, is brand new, is about a 1/2 pound lighter, I think, and has a muzzle break.

The extra $460 saved could be spent on ammo, etc.

Stamped is just as good as milled. The advantages offered by milled are minimal at best, ask yourself how could a milled receiver possibly affect the trigger that's a separate component entirely.
