Theres a guy wanting to sell me a preban rusian ak folder and was wandering if anyone has any info on the type of folding stocks the rusian guns were manufactured with. I thought all rusians with folders were side folding?? I have no idea if this is the original ak-47 or not but how mutch is the average preban rusian going for nowdays?

There are no Pre-ban Russian AKs. He is giving you a line of shit. The ban to import "pre-ban" AKs was in 89. The USSR/Russia was our sworn enemy till about 91. They didnt start shipping any guns to the Civilian market until about 1994. Thats when the first Saiga sporters came.

The latest Russian AK-74s have solid plastic sidefolders, earlier AK-74s had a metal version, and the AKM and AK-47 had underfolders.

Russian folder?? Is this a war bring-back or something. Make sure there aren't 3 notches for the safety lever to click into as you move it up and down. You don't want to be in possession of a full-auto AK by mistake.

Thats what I thought, it ALWAYS has 3 selector positions if it is full auto right?

Ayways, I talked to a guy who has looked at the gun once and really knows the seller and it isn't full auto so I don't have to wory about that.

A war bring back... I haven't thought about that, Its very posible it could be. I think the guy inherited the gun anyways the way it sounds. How would I tell though if it was a bring back and how could I evern tell if it was a pre-89' gun?
