I fought against the urge to buy an AK74 for a few years. I finally bought a Krebs AK74k about six months ago. Now I have four 5.45 AK's, with kits and receivers to build two more. I also have about 50 magazines.
They shoot like an M4, but with the reliability and durability of an AK. You can get non-corrosive ammo delivered for about $250 per thousand, or corrosive for about $130 per thousand. Magazines are $25-$30 per mag now, but can last the life of the rifle. I wish I had started down this path a lot earlier. Good luck with it.
I'd be a better listener if you stopped talking about stupid crap that doesn't matter.
