Yeah, Remington is a nice one out of the box. But have you seen a brand new AK-47? I never liked this rifle because of its reputation as a terrorist gun, but once, my brother gave me an AK-47 as a present on my birthday. When I first saw it, I immediately fell in love. I even made some modification to it, to improve it shooting characteristics. The best improvement, in my opinion, was buying the Holographic Weapon Sight. I found out about it on ballachy.com, and it considerably improved the range and versatility of my rifle.
