Tadeo, it doesn't have a scope. I got the flattop model and attached an EOTech. I tried an aimpoint on my M4gery, but they're nowhere near as versatile as the EOTech.
 
I completely agree with what Detpat has said about the price and value appretiation of an AR. I have very rarely seen firearm prices go down. Actually only once have I seen that happen and it was after Clinton's legacy 1994 Assault Weapon Ban was killed. Firearms hold their value better than even gold and diamonds.
 
Now that we're starting down the very real possibility of a extreme left socialist taking the presidency, and both houses of congress being filled with Socialists, firearm prices are shooting through the roof in anticipation of another AWB. I guess the liberals didn't learn last time they kicked themselves out of office for screwing with gunowners...
 
If another gun ban gets shoveled upon us by a pile of evil liberals, expect that AR you buy now to be worth five or six times what it's worth now. Before the first AWB you could buy a real Steyr AUG for right around $700, afterward you couldn't get one for under $8000!

That is a great idea!Star

 i have 2 ak's and love both of them.  one's a saiga and the other is a highly modded SAR1 with a ak100 sidefolding stock.  love em both.

  i have 2 ar carbines, one is sort of a gadget gun with a vm hytech left side charging handle upper receiver like a FAL and the other is a basic dissipater flattop.  the last ar is a spr tyupe rifle built by a senior gunsmith at the Arkansas national guard bureau [his full time job is building SPR's for  big army] and is  heavy barrel, free floated 20 incher with a leatherwood art II tactical mounted on the flattop.  great shooting gun.

Turboguy, I could not agree with you more.  I bought my first WASR about a year and a half ago for $360 and I just paid $489 for my second one.
 
Coyote, go get your stuff NOW!  Can you just imagine if Obuttfacebama doesn't get in or if he does and something happens to him.  The Rodney King incident would not even compare.  Besides, look at all of the other poop that is happening daily.  A few pistols won't protect your own, you need some substantial fire power to keep things even.  I am always visiting the different guns shops here in Vegas and I am not lying when I say that everytime I go into one I always see these gangster types buying up stuff.  They get the non-felons to buy their stuff for them.  Real scary!  When I bought my WASR last week I had the opportunity to be in the company of two Hispanic males that were completly sleeved up.  And I am thinking "How in the heck are these two able to buy the toys that they were getting?"  Yes, I judge a book by it's cover!
 
Detpat, I've wondered if the different ak variants have interchangeable parts.  All I know is what the WASR-10 insides looks like.  Can you mix and match your SAR1 and Saiga?

yes, most of the parts are the same.  lockwork parts that is, when i converted my saiga 12 i use a tapco G2 FCG [fire control group, tirgger parts set] to replace the saiga OEM parts.  you can get quite a few different upgrade parts sets depending on what you want. 

  the SAR series was known for it's trigger slap, that's when the trigger slaps your finger when the bolt carrier returns the hammer to battery.  the G2 lockwork set eliminates that minor problem.

Minor? I swear to God that thing used to get to the point that I didn't even want to shoot that gun it would hurt my trigger finger so much. Once I installed the Tapco G2 FCG it was like a dream. I've got an Arsenal AK and it's fantastic, the best I've ever seen. Never had a problem with that bad boy.
 
There was a video on YouTube of some dirtbag black guy teaching his three or four year old how to hold and operate an AK47 in a gun shop. Normally I wouldn't have a problem with this, but this guy was telling him that he needs to learn how to be a soldier in the war, etc.
 
I love those that think they're going to somehow last fifteen minutes if the SHTF without even one firearm. The guys that are coming for you have them.

 well........it's better than exploding in your face lol.

  people who have a personal hate on for guns are just plain idiotic.  only fools and liars believe in gun control and that's just it.  I have no more respect for gun haters than i have for screwdriver haters.  It's a tool and you need to learn to use it for it's appropriate functions.

  after all a conservative is just a liberal that's just been mugged.

I just bought a NIB Glock G30, Gen 3, in .45 ACP to add to the pile.  10 + 1, nice and small, highly recommended.

How can you have handguns in Crook County?

I was under the impression that guns were all but outlawed in that violent cesspool.

A friend of mine is a Crook County Deputy. He wanted to buy a rifle from me, but the gun is all but outlawed there, and it'd have been a major crime for me to sell it to him, and a big one for him to even have it.

I have a theory, purchase 2 guns of every caliber so that you can have fewer calibers of ammo to purchase but more of it. The other thing is the wife can have her big gun and she can let her husband have the same caliber so he can feel as important!

Thank God, my son's girlfriend love to shoot hope he marries her!

Nope, I live in DuPage County, one county to the west.  Much more Republican and Libertarian out here.  

I've been collecting for over 40 years, they accumulate like lint!  Love the new technology in the Glocks, seems to be very reliable.  

I once read that "A 1911 .45 is the gun you show to your friends, and the Glock is the gun you show to your enemies."  I've got both!  LOL

HAHA! I love that quote! I'm going to use it.
 
A good buddy of mine lives in Algonquin (Sp?) and says that it is the polar opposite of Crook county. Too bad the rest of Illinois couldn't secede Crook county from them and let them keep their sillines there.
 
I personally hate Glocks. They're ugly. That said, they just plain out work. They're reliable, accurate, fantastic ergonomics, parts abound, they can be taken apart with no tools, the trigger might not be match, but it's consistent and predictable, and the gun holds oodles of bullets.
 
What do I carry? Glock 23 .40cal. Goes everywhere with me. My first GLock, a G17 gen1 I bought in the nineties I shot easily ten thousand times without cleaning or oiling it. I eventually got tired of getting a black hand every time I went shooting and finally cleaned and oiled it. The darn thing just would not jam. Still have it.
 
When it comes to an end of the world pistol, you just can't go wrong with a Glock.
