AK - open to suggestions

My wife shot her first AK this weekend, and has decided that she wants one for her first rifle. So, do I get a cheap eruo/chinese/mil-surp version or pop for something like this.

While buying a rifle with a name like "Hellhound Tactical", is kinda goofy, if it's as good as he says, and it has pretty much everything I'd do to it done, is it a good deal compared to putting my own package together?

So, Lone Star, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

Imho, best bang for a buck is saiga and convert it.

saiga is a copy of latest AK74-100 and comes in every caliber you want - 7.62, 5.45, 223, 308

with minimum tools can be converted to an AK-74 copy of any series - 104, 103, more complicated to 107

you get chromed lined barrel and chamber, cold hammer forged barrel, authentic AK-74 reciever, bolt carrier and bolt.

next step up - already converted saiga SGL from K-var
nothing else is close to izhmash made in stamped recievers

Thanks for the info, and IO as crap gun is noted. Also, VPR-701 is hot. Of course, this works too.
