I live in N.Y., I've bought a Bulgarian SSR85 for $1400. I hope I didn't pay too much for it?

Bulgarian SSR-85 TGI importer $700.00-$800.00 going rate
The one I had front and rear sight canted but shot extremely well -better than most the AKs I've ever shot! VERY ACCURATE!
Alot of milled parts on it. Stamped reciever- The selector was off a milled unit and rubbed against the rivet on the way down to semi.
Thicker barrel and it had a mirror bore!!! Mag fit was not great but it was tight.
Fit was fine, finnish was horrible -black oxide with spots of Bluing?????
Shoot it see what it does @ 100 who knows maybe its a very accurate (AK wise)if it is
that will take the sting out of paying $1400!!
You were better off buying an Arsenal SLR 107 F or FR.

I respect your opinion but keep in mind the situation with these rifles, there aren't many around considering I live in gun-phobic NY.

Ouch. That's a big hit on the price. I live in NY too (unfortunately) and bought a SSR 85 C2 in January on Gunbroker because I had no other local options. Worthless liberals. I paid $799 at the time but had to forego the 30 rd mag because it wasn't pre-ban (luckily I've collected several). The seller was listed as One Click Shooting out of Nebraska. It's one of the TGI Knox versions that has the 1.6mm receiver ( I measured it) which not all SSR 85 C's have. I'm more than pleased with it other than the crap finish on the receiver that will scratch if you fart near it. But who cares, it's an AK. I bought it to be my functional toy not my prom queen. Cycles HP, SP and any other thing I've put through it. Many will say that I paid too much but I saw the upcoming political writing on the wall. Just at the Rochester gun show today and the prices were laughable as well as all the local shops. $699 minimum on a WASR. Don't kick yourself too hard because in a few years if Obama has his way that price won't seem too bad, that is if it doesn't get confiscated! Molon Labe.
