The vendor you get it from is not as important as the builder who builds it. For that matter, the country of origin isn't as important either.

There is lots of info out there if you do your research.

IMHO you should get one to plate, and one to shoot. An underfolder lends itself nicely to plating.

My gold krink ;)

Not quite gold plated, but it did have some gold accents. I took these pics at the Lytle Creek range a long time ago.

Would an Underfolder be legal in CA with a RaddLock and a 10rd Mag? Or would it be too short? That's an awesome AK.

If you are looking for a "classic" AK, take a look at the Lancaster Arms series of AK's. They are built on new NDS receivers and have some of the best wood furniture I have ever seen. Overall fit and finish is excellent and they also have top-notch customer service (at least that has been my experience).

I have a Lancaster and I must say that I am very satisfied with it. I have heard good things about the Henderson's too.

If you go to www.overlandplating.com there are some examples of the AK`s we have plated, gold, nickel and chrome. Believe it or not we do quite a few, when you consider that when a hold AK comes up for sale they go for 3k, and they do sell.You can get them done in both bright and matte, they are harder to do in bright because of the sheet metal recvr.. We are also offering furniture made of solid polymer mother of pearl, ivory and other colors, currently I am doing a Norinco in black chrome/ 24k gold with black opal mother of pearl furniture, thnxhttp://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg242/crobert241/IMG_0143.jpghttp://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg242/crobert241/goldak001jpg.jpg
