I'd also prefer it be a larger round. I'm a big guy (6'5" 250lb) and I handle recoil well. The 7.62x39 is appealing because of price. I just want something sturdy and reliable. Also, I'd prefer a magazine size of at least 10. Higher is better. Accuracy isn't a huge issue with me but if there is a particular ammo/gun combination that works within my rage, I'm all for it. I should add that anything I get would be new/excellent condition
You should definitely consider an SKS or something in the AK configuration - both 7.62x39. Plenty of options there. With stripper clips the SKS loads fairly quickly too. Very reliable design. You could by two of them and ammo for the same price as an AR. Something to think about.
