I already have

Mosin nagant 91/30
Mosin nagant M38
Mosin nagant M44

Yugo SKS ( I wish to get a russian SKS one day)

Lancaster AK47

And I'm currently in the process of obtaining a AK74

That's where I need reccomendations. I'm not sure if I should get an Aresenal SGL, or build my own from a Saiga 200, or a Century arms AK74. Which AK74 would you guys recommend?

First you need to get a Mosin Nagant M91, earlier than that and your looking at non smokeless powder rifles.
Then maybe an SVT 40?
I Love my Saiga convert AK 74, and after the abomination Arsenal wants to sell us with a riveted in bullet button I would stay far, far away from them.

I got a Arsenal with the riveted bullet button It's not that bad, besides I have seen a few of them with the regular bullet button for sale here. I will say this though kinda pricey.

Hold on, even with the AKs, you'd need the variants per the series:
AK-47 (type 1 receiver (early stamped)
AK-47 (type 2 milled)
AKS-47
AKM
AKMS
AK-74
AKS-74
(both of these the 1970s pattern with the 45* gas block)
(And then you'd need the 1980s pattern ones with the 90* and the plum PG)
AKS-74U
AK-74M
AK-103
and any other AK-100 series.

I'll admit that I don't know each and every variant...

You also forgot the Berdan - the primary infantry weapon before the Mosin's...
