The Hungarian AKs are usually referred to as AMDs. If it is a Hungarian built AMD, then it should be a solid rifle. However, the SA-2000M rifle receivers where originally built for single-stack magazines, they were milled later to accept the high capacity double stack magazines. Sometimes this causes a bit of magazine wobble, but I have never personally seen any functional issues because of it.

That should be the model with the wire-folding stock and reverse pistol grip on the fore-end. I don't like the wire-folders, but that's a personal preference, there are ways to make it "better" if you want to go down that path.

When it comes down to it, $600 is not a bad price with the ammo, but if you're really in the market for an AK-style rifle you can likely find a better deal, or maybe something you like more.

Also, I'm not aware of a builder "KBL", but if this is a built off of a kit I would offer a lot less. They can be nothing but problems if the builder didn't know what they were doing.

Trying to upload a short vid of it but it says it is missing the token? It actually has a synthetic stock and it does not have a pistol grip on the forehand.. I really want an AR but it was a blast to shoot and loud as hell.. My initial plan was to buy it and flip it to start an AR build.. Im also trying to get his 1911 he's sellin for 600 too.

Buy it if you want to keep it.

If you really want an AR hold out for it, IMHO. I've had many AKs, both 47s and 74s. They are what they are, an assembly of loose parts that usually work flawlessly in any conditions sacrificing accuracy in the process. For me, I was not happy with 3+ moa even on a spray and pray weapon.

ARs are much more refined and are made with more precision. With the right combination they can be made sub moa easily. The trade off is with the tight tolerances comes a tendency to malfunction if the weapon becomes too dirty or is subjected to a lot of dirt/sand/mud ect.

For me the choice was easy, I'm an accuracy shooter, or try to be. If that's your forte' too then hold out for an AR, they're not much more than the $600 price on the Hungy AK.

If you just want to send a lot of lead downrange quickly and don't really care how close to target they impact then an AK would be fine. Again, all just my opinion.

I would pass. If you really want a AK, look for a good deal on a pre ban norinco.

Really is no debate, like saying which are better, apples or oranges.
They're two completely different weapons both having their pros and cons.

That said "If you know how many guns you have you don't have enough" !

I've had a FEG AK for a very long time. It is the one with the thumbhole stock that was available during the "ban". It has functioned flawlessly and I've put many thousands of rounds downrange with it. As far as accuracy it's no AR, but I can hit a man-sized steel target at 300yards consistently with it. IMO, $600 is too much for one that is used, nowadays you can buy an American made, milled receiver AK with a chrome lined barrel for around $600 brand new. (just pick up a copy of Shotgun News).
If you want to get an AR platform, the Smith & Wesson M&P 15 base model can be had for around $600. HTH

Decent deal, and it's a magazine...not a clip.

Zix pretty much covered it. If it has FEG on the receiver it was probably imported by TGI as a single stack & opened up to accept a double stack mag. The price with ammo isn't bad but I wouldn't get it just to try and flip it.

Buy it and enjoy the hell out of it then get an AR.

Palmetto State Armory sells AR kits + stripped lowers for less than $600 including shipping. I have found them to be very accurate with close-tolerance machine work. If you watch for their weekly specials, you may be able to purchase a nice kit for less. I can assemble one of these puppies in less than an hour, including laser bore-sighting. PSA can sell you ammo cheaper than anyone. Check 'em out.
