Can anyone recommend a semi-auto rifle chambered in 7.62 x 39?

Something both reliable and accurate?

around the ballpark of $400-500?

looking for something I can get my hands on asap and get some solid range time in.

I already have plans to build on AR platform for my next project

AK maybe ? :D

Seriously, off the top of my head I can't think of any rifles chambered in that cartridge other than some AR platforms.


Anyone else here have more info ??

If you're looking for an AK style platform in that caliber go with a Saiga or Krinkov.

I'm not sure about the price of the Krinkov's, but The Saiga models are in that price range.

I would go with an AK or mini 30 Ruger.

Thanks for all the responses, I've found a couple of Saiga's going for $699 (Used) around me
as well as a mini 30 & mini 14 @ $749 used, not bad prices all things considered.
but beyond my budget at this point unfortunately.

I was able to test out an M4gery at my local Gun shop retail $450 w/ box of ammo, which I'm strongly considering
one model chambered in 6.8 - so yeah still shopping, guess it's time to bust out the christmas list:)
