I went to the gun show today and saw the 5.45x39 ammo really cheap. That got my wheels turning. I can actually afford to shoot this stuff like back in the old days when I used 7.62x39. My road block was, I could only find a Romanian ak74. Before I say anything else. I realize there a lot of good Romanian Ak's out there that people have. However I have been burned not once but twice with them. So no disrespect to those who love them. My question is, is there any other makers or even any other types of rifles that shoot this round? Thank you to all who respond.

The Saiga is a great rifle, and cheap too...

The Saigas are made in Russia at either the Izhvesk or Izhmash plant ( I can't remember which). They are "real" AK's.

Actually Win308, stuff like Wolf and Golden Tiger say "Non-corrosive" right on the outside of the box. Just because it's cheap, doesn't make bad, nor does it make it corrosive.

Honestly, I shot 20 rounds of Golden Tiger and it seemed better than the Wolf I shot for a slightly higher price.
