Since this is a frequently asked question, I'll do my best to summarize what's available in the United States and some basic details. I will leave it open for a short time for folks to add stuff I may have forgotten, but please keep to the basic information and keep other discussions for other threads. This is just a one thread overview of models. Also please correct me if any of this is wrong. In no particular order, here are the AKs available in semi-auto form to US civilians irrespective of state laws. Chinese: Pre-ban Polytech and Norinco rifles withstamped or milled receivers, long and short barrels, threaded muzzles, bayonet lugs, and some with folding stocks. Models include Polytech Legend and more (please contribute and I will add them.) Other models made to comply with 1989 import ban are Polytech and Norinco MAK-90, MAK-91, NHM-90, NHM-91, BWK and such. These came with thumbhole stocks and no threaded muzzles or bayonet lugs. Also made a Norinco Hunter based loosely on the Valmet Hunter with a two piece classic sporting stock. These various models were chambered primarily in 7.62x39mm, but also came in 223. Romanian: Cugir, Intrac, and ROMAK models imported before Clinton Exec Order in 2000. Had thumbhole stocks like the above Chinese models. SAR-1, 2, and 3 - Made in Romania but had enough parts replaced with US made ones (see other sticky) to be imported after the above ban. WASR 10, 2, and 3 - Imported as single stack rifles but most converted to double stack and using US made parts. The 1 or 10 models are in 7.62x39mm, the 2 models are in 5.45x39mm, and the 3 models are in 223/5.56x45mm. The ROMAK 3 is a larger rifle based on the RPK and chambered in 7.62x54R. Hungarian: Various models imported with thumbhole stocks, no longer imported. Military parts kits and builds on US receivers include AMD-63 and AMD-65. Polish: Various parts kit builds thereof, including 7.62x39mm and 5.45x39mm Russian: Saiga rifles and shotguns available in 7.62x39mm, 223, 308, 12ga, 20ga, and 410. Factory made in sporting configurations to take proprietary mags, but 7.62x39 and 223 models are based on their military counterparts and are easily retrofitted with military stocks and to use military mags. Other Saiga models can have stock conversions but do not easily adapt to any other mags. VEPR models based on the thicker RPK design. Available in 7.62x39mm, 223, 5.45x39mm, and 308 with a variety of barrel lengths. Bulgarian: Many thumbhole stocked versions available from before the Clinton Exec Order with milled and stamped receivers. Current stamped and milled versions available from Arsenal USA. Milled US receiver models called SAM-7 in 7.62x39mm and SAM-5 in 223. Single stack Bulgarian receiver rifles converted to take military mags called SLRs. Other current US stamped receiver versions available from Arsenal in 7.62x39mm and 5.45x39mm. Egyptian: Generally copies of the Chinese models, with long and short barrels. Known as MAADI and MISR models. Yugoslavian: Heavy duty models with many RPK features made in pre and post '89 ban forms in 7.62x39mm, 308, and 8x57mm. Parts kits now on the market and special receivers are available. Israeli Galil: Pre and post '89 ban versions in 223 and 308, including a sporting version called the Hadar that had a full length one piece thumbhole stock. Finnish Valmet: Pre bans only in 7.62x39mm, 223, and 308 Valmet Hunter version with classic stock in 308 and 30-06. Currently available choices include Saigas and conversions thereof, the WASR series in pre and post expiration form, VEPRs, ARSENAL USA models with stamped and milled receivers, ROMAK-3/PSL/FPK (mislabeled Romanian Dragunov), and builds from parts kits by Ohio Rapid Fire, Vector Arms, DCI, Arsenal, Krebs, AK-USA, and many students (there are no graduates) of the WECSOG - Wylie E Coyote School Of Gunsmithing - that means you and me. Other models no longer imported are still on the market in used or unused conditions, with prices varying greatly.
