Models that are always out there such as the ever present WASR-10 and GP 1975's can be had for reasonable prices, but the one important thing I think an AK pattern rifle needs is a chrome lined barrel.

Question is do these rifles have them?

WASR's should have them. WASR 7.62s, if I am not mistaken, are essentially USA importable Romanian AKs made in the Cugir factory. Century just imports them.

Winner. All my WASRs were chrome lined.

just wondering because it never lists that as a feature at most places that sell them

Yugo AKs are not chromelined, and any AK they built using an US made barrel won't be chormelined either.

WASRs have romy barrels so they're chromlined.

Not all of Century's AKs are chrome lined. Of the two you mentioned, the WASR is always chrome lined. The GP model with the black polymer stock is NOT chrome lined. It has a dimpled American made receiver and barrel. The Polish, Yugo, and milled models are also not chrome lined.

Dumb question but why is chrome lined better? Is it easier to clean?

Yes, much easier to clean, and barrel longevity. It also resists corrosion much better than an unlined barrel.

thats the main thing.

You sacrifice a bit of precision for barrel longevity

Thanks for the info guys, looks like I wont be buying a GP 1975 when it comes time to buy an AK. Looks like the WASR-10 is my winner.
