    Whitch AK to Keep?

    I need to fund a XCR 6.8 purchase. That means I have to sell one of my AKs. I have a very nice Krebs KTR-03S that has every bell and whistle on it. It is built on a stamped Saiga. I also have a very nice (more traditional) Milled Arsenal that I have lightly modified (ACE folder, Ultimak gas mount, couple of other minor mods). Both guns are nice, reliable, and in like new condition. I am not married to either one. Which one should I hold onto and why? What price should I ask for each one in the condition I described? I am leaning towards dumping the Krebs just because it looks so flashy, I know I can sell it quick. I got into both rifles at the right price. Thus, I won't lose money on either one.

    My vote goes to the Krebs: Sell it.

    Sell the Krebs if it is the one you are the least attached to. I would never sell any of my AK's unless circumstances (financial) would force me to.
    In a SHTF situation, I am grabbing an AK before anything else.
    I hope the XCR is everything you are hoping it is. Good luck.

    Keep the Krebs!!! They will never produce the KTR-03's again. It is truly the ultimate expression of the AK in my opinion. I think the "updated" KTR-08 is a weak follow-up to the '03. You could always replicate the milled Arsenal down the road if you decide you want another. I doubt you will find anyone who is willing to sell their KTR-03.... atleast not for an even remotely resonable price.

    I would not sell a real proven AK (Arsenal) to fund a new and not proven XCR.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I am so with you two guys on this..!! Keep both AKs and save for quality AR if you want something different. XCR gets a downselect in my book.

    Good thing I'm not you. I'll see if I can't ring out the XCR and prove if it is worthwhile or not.

    I'd sell the Krebs.

    But I'd replace it with a Arsenal SGL31.
