So I'm looking to buy an AK. I have never owned one so I literally know pretty much nothing about them, other than they are pretty much unstoppable, less accurate than an AR at range, and range anywhere from junk to high dollar.

I know I want to pay around $600.00-$700.00, I want it in 7.62, and I want folding stock (I think)

Outside of that, I'm up to any suggestions my good friends here at Glock.pro might have to offer. Appreciate the advice in advance.

Normally, I'd suggest that you save more money and get an Arsenal (used or from KVAR)..... nah, I'm still going to suggest it. Save more money and get an Arsenal. There's a nice like new used one on GT for $765 shipped. It is the standard by which all others are measured. You will not be disappointed in having the best.

I don't know if I would call them unstoppable. My experience with competing against people using them is they didn't live up to the hype. I have seen 3 or 4 jams in a single string of fire. All the while my "piece of junk AR" running 100%.

To each his own but I am not impressed with them or the military's using them so I will stick with my piston ARs.

My issue is that I didn't want to stick an AR behind my truck seat. I guess i could get that S&W MP AR I wanted and put my existing AR behind the truck seat... hrmmmmmm

Like the Cheif I wouldn't mind owning one if I could get one of the better examples. My issue is I'm like TheLaw in that I can't tell the difference. I guess more than anything I fall in line with sfguard in that my AR runs great, it's light weight, and I'm familiar with it's operation. No sense in buying a bug, bulky, different to operate, different ammo to feed, etc. rifle just to sit in my safe.

I know what you want it for though and wouldn't mind doing the same. I just don't see that as a reasonable option for me given the current prices. Now, if they were still running $300-400 for a decent one I would have one.

Yeah, if I have to move into the 700-800 range, I'm going with the M&P AR. I'll put my old DPMS AR behind the truck seat. I've got 12 mags and an ammo box full of .556 already.

That's exactly what I was thinking. My M&P15X was like $979 shipped IIRC. You can sometimes find them a bit cheaper if you really look.

Yep, but the only lever gun I own, which happens to be a 30-30, was my Grand-Fathers so I'm not putting that in as a truck gun. LOL

No, it looks pretty awesome. Have you not seen the Chief's?

Ok, you have my curiosity aroused what do you want it for? Back up gun, Wild hogs, etc? Is there something that would make a big difference in the caliber chosen? After all a 30-30 is a fairly big round.

This.

No specific/particular use in mind other than to have a functional long gun in your vehicle.

Ideally, one would have whatever your "primary" long gun is with them at all times for any emergency that might come up while you are out and about. However, logistics and the real thread of theft prevent that for most of us. I personally don't leave a firearm in my vehicle. I want to but it just isn't something I'm prepared to do (mostly because I fear it would get stolen out of my vehicle and wind up inthe hands of a criminal).

I agree this is a concern. The way my truck is configured, I don't "think" a thief would notice that the back seats have space behind them. My thought is they would hit the center console, glove box and under the seats and be gone. I'm sure it would depend on where the break-in occurred and how much time they had. Typically they want to get in and out fast.
