I'm looking to buy a true AK-47. I want it to be made in Russia and be semi-auto. I'm ready to purchase one and need your help. I have a FFL person I can get it shipped to. Any help/links?

Only cheap way thats going to happen is with a saiga reciver and a parts kit. some people build them but I lost all my links for them.

It will indeed say "Made in russia" then

what cat said, but converting a Saiga into a pistol gripped ak-47 takes some work ;) Here's the steps (http://www.cross-conn.com/Saiga_Conversion/). Personally I'd settle for an AK with the proper pistol gripped reciever. But that's why I have a Norinco.

Other then that gunbroker, auctionarms would be yrou next best bet. Could you settle for an Eastern Block ak-47?

I saw some Russian parts kits for sale a while back. AK74's with the triangular folding stocks and synthetic hand guards. They were in the $600-700 range and I believe unissued condition. The only non Russian part on your rifle would be the receiver.

I've been a HUGE Pelican case fan the last couple of years.

Expensive... but worth it. (Esp if you get the custom cut foam)

2nd in the running and slightly cheaper is Maxpedition's Sliver Case

It has a neat extension boot for 40"+ guns.

Reflex sight wise look for a Kobra sight. It's tactical and Russian ;)

i have messed about with a couple pelican cases. not for guns mind you, but for camera gear. there water tight stuff is of the highest quality i have seen. i never would have thought so much care could go into the manufacturing of a plastic box.

ill +1 pelican.

its tempting to buy a WASR at those prices....

Yes, but if you go with a Saiga conversion you will end up spending about the same money as you would buying a WASR and you will have a high quality rifle built in the Izhmash factory (birth place of the original AK).
You would also have the choice between three calibers (.223; 7.62x39 and .308).

Yes, it does involve some work on your part, but it is well worth it and not all that complicated.

Take a look @ http://forum.saiga-12.com/
