I’m really interested in getting a good quality AK chambered in 5.56 but I’m not real sure where to start looking.  I don’t have a preference for milled or stamped receivers but I would like something that takes readily available mags

This is one topic i'm pretty ignorant on.  PSA doesn't make any 5.56 AKs yet, or I'd recommend them, as their AK's are pretty legit.  But I feel like I just saw another US manufacturer that started the other day.  For the life of me I can't remember.

But Zastava, which is the AK I have, does offer a 5.56 version.

@andrew AK Daddy's video on the Sam-5 was pretty good. The rifle just looked plain though, nothing a bit of alone time from @Sam can't fix though.

@nukesmurphy I’m kinda partial to the spray paint myself 🤣 🤣 also I’m really kind of wanting to do a full zenitco furniture set on whatever I end up getting

Kalashnikov USA 556 AK as well.  This particular one was just announced at SHOT I believe.

@sam after doing some looking they are trying to do a full 100 series of ak's by the end of the year all around $1000 plus or minus depending on options and furniture.  I saw a video from ARFCOM at shot show that they are also going to offer a 5.56 AK that will take AR pmags and have AR style mag release also.
