Why change something that is as simple as the AK

It works, don't fix it

It is the Fender Stratocaster of guns.
I'm not really a proper reporter, due to the chronic lack of discipline, negligible attention span, and a certain juvenile difficulty taking serious things seriously.

To start the selector lever needs upgrading/improvement , the sight radius could be lengthened and the sights themselves could use improvement.

One of the guys I met in A'stan offered to sell me a FA 74 for $250 - I wracked my brain for 2 whole days trying to figure out how to ship it back here - then common sense prevailed and I told him no thanks. I think I might could have broken it down and shipped it piece by piece but finally decided it just wasnt worth the risk.
