na... i have one, ok but not for that price. a FAL or ar15, mini-14. the ak for me anyway is just a toy to shoot stuff. i guess i could make due with it in combat, it functions well when dirty, but the barrel get real hot and acurracy dwindles. have a look at a shot gun news for assalt rifles. then hit a gun show, i saw them for 200$ something(250-300) in good condition in greenville at a show. just remember that out of state sales still have to go though a nc gun store. mine here charges 25$ or so for the paperwork.
