Before spending your money I strongly recommend that you audition the later and much higher performance AK74.
A lot of AK 47s currently on the market are cheaper Chinese copies and the QC is really not up to scratch. Try and get a '74M in good condition, preferably of Czech manufacture.
I' m sure you will not be disappointed.
May work for cars but not assault weapons, you do not want to be caught out gently trying to clear a jammed round while someone creeps up on you and beats your brains out with a rock.
No, Czech build is definitely the way to go, if you have a decent local dealer you can get the '74 rechambered for the standard NATO round, much easier to come by in this part of the world and more reliable too.
Slight reduction in muzzle velocity is the only issue, though I doubt this would be detectable in a properly conducted blind test.
Scary. Now I am starting to think that you're a firearms expert. No chance of someone taking advantage of a jammed round in the Australian forces. Australia is geared up only for an 'armed aggressor' We only lauch the rockets if someone is trying to invade us. Two contries, but only two would come close. Any idea?
Really madhouse, you shouldn't worry to much, I have lived in countries where a couple of handguns and an assault rifle are part of the normal fixtures and fittings. Australia is totaly pussyfied these days and probably could not see off a determined housebreaker, let alone an armed aggressor.
Fortunately, cold beer and beaches apart, there is nothing in australia that anyone would want, you already sell your raw materials for peanuts, so not even that is interesting.
Rocket wise I am a big fan of the 66mm LAWS, that is, I believe, general issue with the australian army. Very useful toy if you find you need to let someone know you are serious, on a personal level at least.
We do so many shows in a row,
And these towns all look the same,
We just pass the time in our hotel room
And wander 'round backstage,
Till the lights come up, and we hear that crowd,
And we remember why we came.
Have I stumbled into the 'Survivalist Monthly' web forum? Or is this just a bit of Monday morning #### swinging by two people who've played too many 'shoot 'em up' games?
Marantz M-CR603 • Rega R3 loudspeakers • AirPlay • Apple iPad Mini • Apple iPhone 5 • Apple iMac • Apple AirPort Extreme 802.11N • Humax HDR-Fox T2 • Panasonic TX-L32D25B • Sony BDP-S390
It is the beer that worries me the most (easily worth a war over)
I don't play games. I have made them though. Hardest job you've ever done in your life.
Aussie beer is rubbish anyway.
Probably run around like Rambo. Find it disturbing.

Can you have such a thing?

I don't know. The last time I played a video game was somewhen during the 1980s I think. (It was in colour and it involved gorillas throwing things at each from the tops of high rise buildings.)
Too bitter for ya?
Oh true Australians love their beer (bonza!) We have a lot of idiots who cannot handle their alcohol, but some of us can opereate high-performance vehicles without event after consuming a bottle of rum and a box of beer.

No its not too bitter we have plenty of bitter beers over here.
... but some of us can opereate high-performance vehicles without event after consuming a bottle of rum and a box of beer.
Gosh, how manly.
I really hope your borderline sociopathic 'boast' was a sick joke and not a reality. Statistically, at least a few people viewing a popular forum like this would have been a victim (or known a victim) of drunk drivers.
This forum really does lack a sense of humour, my posts were pretty deadpan but I thought that someone might find them amusing, just proves that the old adage that 'bullsh*t baffles brains' still applies.
Aussie beer can be pretty good though I am now well out of date. Draught Coopers, out of Adelaide, was top class back at the end of the 80s but for every good pint, there was plenty of very poor fair from the likes of Toohys and Fosters.
Haha, thought it was all keg in Oz?
Excellent, keeps you on your toes! People are far too complacent on this forum.
Admittedly we don't boast about our favourite anti-tank weaponry, or how fast we can drive after drinking "a bottle of rum and a box of beer", but I fail to see how that makes us complacent.
