You better buy it. Sounds like a deal.

I would never spend that type of money on an AK47.

An [i]engraved[/i] AK with [i]gold inlay[/i]?? I won't go so low as to call it "polishing a turd", but isn't that equivalent to putting 16 coats of hand-rubbed laquer on a '92 Escort? Oh, and gold tru-spoke wheels?[%|][BD][:X*]

that stock makes it look worthless. Should have had a fixed folder.

That's a pretty nice ak. I don't know if i would be able to afford it though. THE GRAND POO-BA MIKIE

bah... humbug... I wouldn't buy a $300 AK-47. What makes you think I'd buy that crap? "War Trophy"... Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is a "War Trophy". For me, a "War Trophy" would be my 9mm Brigadier saving my life with the last round in the chamber. That's a "War Trophy".

The pre-ban, full auto, folder might be worth that sort of money. But this looks like a gold engraved turd. Like putting diamonds on a pig. Definite NO on the stock. I like the AK, but in it's true config. It's not the sort of gun you dress up. I think the commemorative AR is pretty much in the same boat.

OK, Vietnam war trophy...with the butthole stock and with the mounting tabs for the cleaning rod ground off....HA! eyes [rolleyes]

There's one guy at the local (Wisconsin) gun shows who only sells this type of commemorative stuff. The 1920's Commemorative Thompson [with foregrip]; The Korean War Commemorative Thompson [without foregrip]; The Armed Forces Commemorative Colt 1911; The Vietnam War Commemorative AR-15 (a preban blue label Colt!); And, the aforementioned Vietnam Commemorative butthole stock AK-47. But, perhaps the most "interesting" commemorative firearm was "The Armed Forces Commemorative [b]UZI[/b]." (I didn't know the US issued UZI's.....) [rolleyes] Mike PS. $1,600.00 seems a bit high; I seem to remember the AK being relatively inexpensive and going for around a grand even.
