    Sold Out!! Did you get one?

    A little to high for me, but really I am basing that on past purchases and that probably isn't a real market indicator. I would feel more comfortable if it was in the $450 range, and even that would the highest I would go considering I'm going to have to pay for the transfer and shipping.

    I have been keeping an eye out as well. Though I have a few, I wouldn't mind picking up one more just because.

    I've kept an eye out since about this time last year and I think the days of the $450 AKs are gone. I'd call that a decent price depending on your interest.

    That's sort of what I was thinking but I was trying to be hopeful it wasn't true. :mad:

    Looks like a good price. Can't help thinking the importers are not going to lower their prices back to pre-SandyHook levels. I remember seeing junk Norincos for sub $200. BUT THEY WORKED!

    That was a real good price.

    Sent from the Bacon isle at your local grocery store.

    I believe they are long gone. Too many market forces that will keep the cost higher and the cost of money is so much higher than 5 years ago. I have been wanting an AK for way too long not to have saved back enough to have bought that one or something similar by now. boohoo

    There are tons of those at gun shows, if you really want a PAP then you might be able to get one somewhat close to that price if you are a good negotiator.

    Note that these are current production civilian rifles from Zastava, not the demilled M70s that were prevalent a few years back (M70AB2 underfolder and M70B1 fixed stock rifles). The easiest way to spot the difference is the lack of the gas block grenade launcher sight.

    Some PAPs even have demilled furniture on them, noted by the serial number on the stock; but these are not demilled rifles.

    The chances of scoring an AK for $450 might come back one day (God willing), but for the time being you are lucky to find one under $600...
