Was at an estate auction this past Saturday way north in GA. There were 3 AK’s list along with many fine Browning rifles, 155 acre estate and 5000 square foot house.
No online bidding. All firearms at a local FFL and not onsite.
House and land went for $925,000 (plus 10% plus sales tax).

Bidding on what was reported to be a new in box (missed preview due to work) full stock Legend started at $300 and quickly went to $1000. All but 1 other bidder dropped out. I was in at $1450 and then saw that the other bidder was an older farmer looking guy and his grandson. He went to $1500 and I said let him have it. It probably was a gift for the grandson. Let him have the $500 M1 Carbine also with Korean wood. (I have enough already I never shot). Guy moved very slow and stiffly - hard life farming or a good actor for a guy looking to be pushing 70+.

Did get a reported nib MAK-90 for $437 out the door which I am picking up Wednesday from their dealer (2 hour drive each way from me). No idea if slant or straight but at that price I don’t care.

Last Choatified MAK-90 with off brand railed dust cover and weird brake went for way, way too much money. But it looked “cool”.

When you could have instantly flipped it for triple that?

Finally picked it up. Did not look NIB - such BS.
Hit it with some oil and a Dollar Store SS cleaning thingy.
Cleaned up nice. Clean bore.
Square cut - got lucky.
No mags - got boku.
Now need a solid wood stock (not laminate) for the color job to match the handguards.

That is clean.

You don't often see a square cut with the Norinco logo on the bottom of the receiver. That's typically a sign that it is probably slant cut, as opposed to the logo on the left side above the trigger which is usually square.
Somewhat uncommon rifle there...
