I'm sure this has been answered a billion times before, but I can't find the answer around. Please don't hate me: I've become interested in getting an AK-47. Since there are more countries building these things than you can count, and since they are basically identical (I think), it probably comes down to general quality control and craftsmanship as to which country generally builds the better AK. In order, which country makes the best to worst version of AK's out there? I'm having trouble finding a Russian one but can get a Romanian. Romanian version decent? Also, I'm new to these and other military long guns. How easy is it to get 7.62 X 39 ammo? Is it known by any other designation in the US, just like 5.56 is thought of like 223 REM, etc. Anyway, thanks in advance.
