I was looking at picking up a SAR or WASR at the last show (1st weekend in Sept.) EVERY ONE I looked at had canted / crooked sights. I spent quite a while at the J&G booth and after passing on three for bad sights, the guy got a little rude and said they're all the same... I don't know what your looking for. I guess I should have just bought the first one he handed me and been thankful. I chose to take my money and walk. Picked up a maddi a few months back for about the same price the Romanian modles go for. Better deal in my opinion. Other than the sight probs the SAR's and WASR's seem to be pretty good. SAR's being just a notch better. Also look out for the mag opening on the WASR's, as they were single stack conversions and the quality varies and you can end up with a very sloppy fit.
Just my $.02
