Difficult for me to answer this myself as I just about like them all. Bulgarian ones are kind of my favorite in that they seemed to be a little more asthetically pleasing and have shot better for me in the accuracy department. This being said a friend recently got one of the Saiga reworks from Arsenal USA, and it is a sweet shooting, and sweet looking AK.
The Chinese MAK 90's work like, well like an AK is supposed to. They kind of grow on you too. The much maligned WASR's even work good when properly set up. I have about 3000 rounds thru one with out a malfuntion.
Yugo AK's are nice and seem to be well put togather as well the M70 shoots good too. Then there are the Other caliber AK's like the 223, 545, 308, and some others as well. What are ya'lls thoughts on what you like and why.

I don't like the dang things, except for a few.

The only ones I like are the Bulgarian, Russian, and Chinese. Well, also the Romanians. And the Hungarians, I like them too. And Yugoslavians too, I guess.

I'd probably like Polish and Egyptian if I had some!! :lol4:

I think my next one is going to be a milled reciever. That way I can see what all the fuss is about.
Being heavier and costing more?

People forget they started stamped and went to milled because their tech base was not able to build quality stamped receivers. As soon as they were mechanically able, the Russkis went back to stamped.
