    The Type-89 is probably the most AR-18 like AR-18 derivative. Put a 16" barrel on the AR-18, modify the mag well to work with unmodified AR-15 magazines, and the folding stock either swapped with a fixed stock or an aluminum or steel tubular deal with plastic and rubber where it's supposed to interface with human. Oh, and a two-position gas system, one position to function with lower pressure Japanese domestic ammo and the other to function with American/Australian NATO-spec ammo.

    I have my 2 AR rifles in different configurations. Then I have a 11.5" BCM AR-15 pistol. Each serves a purpose.
    I have 2 AK 47's and 2 AK 74's. 1 of each is traditional wood furniture and iron sights.
    The other are somewhat accessorized. AK 74 has M4 adjustable stock and RSR with RDS, AK 47 has synthetic furniture with RSR and RDS.
    Wife has laid claim to the traditional wood AK''s as HER's.
    I have come to carrying the AR 15 Pistol w/RDS and BUIS as my ride with me truck gun.

    I'd dump the 74's if you only have two and add a couple more AKM's- then modernize them. It's not like 5.45 ammo is sitting on the shelf at the local gun shop, it's restricted primarily to online purchases only. However 7.62x39 is extremely common and is about the only non NATO cal I'd consider keeping in a collection long term. Plus having AKM's purely for a long term SHTF scenario is always a plus.

    I also predict that a reasonably priced AR47 rifle like PSA's will increase demand for x39 ammo and overall popularity of the rounds and need for AK mags etc.....

    Yeah PSA's PSAK47 GF3 is on sale through tomorrow noon for $599 shipped. Very tempting, my only AK experience is a WASR I owned for about a year back around 2012.

    I don't quite get all the ruckus about AKs though. I thought they were just loose tolerance crap boxes made in tractor factories so not sure why they seem so hard for Americans to build correctly.

    Changed my mind, all you need is a quality AK and a Glock.

    5.45 was never really sitting in stores anyway. I couldn't walk into any store and buy it. Only one carried it and it was sporadic.

    Overall the AK is the best SHTF rifle ever designed.
