I went yesterday and nothing...no AKs at all. Im sitting there at a table with my buddy and an old guy walks up and sold a pistol to the guy next to us...he lays this AK down and I noticed its a .223 Norinco preban.......I had just ordered a WASR3 in .223. from AIM. Old guys AK was in great shape...he said about 20 orounds were shot thru iot. Well I ask him how much and he says $425.00...I borrowed the money from my buddy and got the gun...no way was I letting this go by. Gun is a lot nicer than my pics make it look.

Good Move!!! A few gunshows ago, (during the height of the Ban) I was making the rounds and saw a stamped Poly-Tech folder in unfired, still sealed condition with all the goodies. Guy was asking $900, but told me to check back with him later. So about a half-hour later, I am buying Ruger Mini-14 factory 30 rounders from that shriveled-up chain-smoking mag lady, and this guy next to me says "Do you have any Chinese AK mags? I just bough this AK over there, and I need a few more mags!!!

Damn I was pissed!!!!!

Just for kicks you may want to try an orange bakelite mag in your 56. I've got an 84s2 that runs fine with them, with no mods.

Not a bad deal. I think I only paid $175 or so for mine.. Al long long time ago..


Should have asked the guy why he has is bayonet hanger attached to the sling.. That could scratch your gun up//

congrats :)

Hell back in the day you could get them for $179.00 at Thriftys in Truckee. I started buying them when they were around $225-250 and SKS sold for $89.00. I paid $625 for my PolyTech last year...in about mint condition.

Hell of a deal!

Its ilegal in California...Its legal in most Nevada counties. Never heard of a house in Truckee. I know quite a few people in the business...owners and hookers.

That looks a heck of a lot like a preban Norinco. you did well !

Great purchase looks real nice only once in my lifetime have i ever came across a gun show deal like that, bout ten years ago a young guy in his early 20's just walked into a gun show right before me with a 41' johnson i bought it for 600, i think these deals are once in a lifetime purchases so cherish that purchase, take it out and shoot the shit out of it, congrats.

i took a WASR 10 I had that was real nice and sold it for $425.00....thats what I paid for the Norinco preban so I guess that was a great step up in quality at the same price.
