    Mr. Ski,

    Thank you for your videos, they are very informative. I currently own a CAI WASR and was looking to purchase a DAKM 4150 but Atlantic does not have them in stock. I saw the RAK 47 Atlantic sells and was wondering how that compares to the DAKM. It is a few hundred more and was wondering if it is worth the extra money or wait for the DAKM to come back in stock. I just want a reliable shooter with wood furniture that looks like a classic AK type rifle. Thanks

      RAK is converted Saiga, when DAKM is made on Polish parts by Definitive Arms, but DAKM is cheaper and i think it is better value.

        Thank you. I will wait for the DAKM to become available again.

    Rob Ski,

    I’m just now getting into the AK platform. I have purchased my first AK which is a used Romarms Century with Quad Rails and what I believe to be an M-4 stock. I bought by picture and discriprion only. I know, not the best way to make a purchase but I loved the look and it was a trust in God thing.
    I’ll let you know if I fucked up once delivery is made or if I was lucky and received what I payed for. 700.00 btw.

    Enjoy your informitve videos. Look forward to being an AK brother.

    rob, help!!!!!!!!!!!!! im looking to buy an ak, I already own an I.O. and I want a higher quality one. I have been looking at DDI and Century and Arsenal but I have been watching your videos and other reviews and im seeing poor reviews for ALL makers of aks . Im willing to spend 800-1200 on a good ak. but if I do, I want just that, a GOOD one. Which brand do I buy?

            Nope…not even at copper custom.

            I’m hoping that my local shop has one…If not, WASR 10 it is

      They generally were Ok, but there were some bad apples too…hard to predict which one you may get Brad…
