Sorry genx, $450 is a good deal on that rifle and accessories. You're obviously ignorant regarding the usual market prices of the various models in the AK market. I understand that you may not be willing to pay that price, but others certainly are. Besides, why don't you just try to show some class and keep your mouth shut when you think someone got a bad deal? The buyer and seller are both happy. Just because someone else decides to offer congratulations doesn't mean that you're compelled to show your lack of class.
Question: If a friend of yours got engaged to a lady that you think is ugly, would you offer congratulations or would you tell him you think she's ugly? Others would be offering congratulations, so using your logic I guess that you'd be compelled to offer up your true opinion.
