1973 Izhmash parts kit, original barrel, clean shiny bore and well-defined rifling and threads. Looks nearly new. No rear trunnion, trigger guard or mag release, and aside from FSB pins and muzzle attachment, all other parts seem to be present. Stock, grip and upper handguard, look about right for the year, but I'm not sure whether the lower grip handguard is correct. Full auto trigger group. Numbers don't match.
Picked up at a gun show 25 years ago for 50 bucks, and sat in a box all this time. I don't think I'm ever going to get around to building it.
Any ballpark ideas as to what it's worth?
I am trying to figure out what this is worth. It is a Norinco 84s, but has a fixed bakelite stock. I have multiple 40 round steel Norinco mags, and dozens of the 30 round Norinco mags. There is lots of info on the ones with the red bakelite folding stock, but nothing on this version. Please, can anyone help? Thanks!

I have an Egyptian MAADI RPM with a 20" barrel, imported by A.C.C. INTRAC. Still has threads, just covered by a muzzle-nut. It has been sand-blasted and refinished (park and blue, done by an actual gunsmith, not a DIY job), the dust cover and receiver were looking a bit rough in some areas and didn't want it to get any worse. Parts are serial matching and I have all of the original parts (thumbhole stock). Currently has a surplus Romanian stock and Bulgarian pistol grip with a basic bitch bipod. Gun looks great and is super clean. I realize that refinishing hurts the value, but it was necessary. Looking to potentially sell or trade this firearm, but would like to know the approximate value prior to posting. I was pretty confident until the covid panic buying jacked up the market so much that I've seen I.O.'s and RAS47's listed for around $1,000. I've also found a few postings online, but was not sure how realistic they are. The images of my rifle are below, along with links to the listings I've found. The last 3 photos are pictures of some unused 5.45 bakelite mags. I would like to know what they might be worth as well. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Is it that prices are changing so much that it's hard to give accurate predictions, or no one is keeping up with the market any longer?
It's because the main appraiser, Flyleaf, said he was taking a break putting values on these guns until the market settles down a bit.
Steyr maadi in 9/10 condition. Lgs has one for 3k, is that a good price?
Anyone know the value of a preban Norinco 87S (RPK). Like new except for some storage dings, no box, but comes with the original oil bottle.
