Got an offer for this rifle that comes with 2-40 rnd mags and one 75 round mag plus 1000 rounds russian 7.65. The sights are straight.

This is NIB, unfired and still has some cosmoline on it..everything included in the box.

Good deal? Should I shoot it if I buy it or 'collect' it?

The last polytech folder i saw was marked at 1300 and came with one 30rd mag. If i were you I would jump on this NOW!!!!!!!!!

Would you consider shooting it or would it be too collectable?

If I get an AK I certainly plan on shooting it lots!

Whats the point of owning a gun if ya don't shoot it? safe queens are a waste of fun and money.

I'm going to try and chew him down a few hundred if he'll bite.

If I can get it for 800 then I'm all over it! I'll probably get it anyhow if he doesn't come down. If my wife wont let it happen, I'll post it on the EE board.

Wow, 1000 rounds of Russian 7.65 is worth that much alone!

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Seriously though, I have more safe queens than shooters, there is nothing wrong with that.

Yeah, you haven't heard of the 7.65??!! It's almost the same but mo better!!

Well, he put the nail in the coffin, he said he'd sell it to me for 800 for everything.

My wife is none too pleased but it's easier to ask for forgivness than permission. Please dont try to talk me into scopes and other assorted bling, I'm in some hot water. This is gonna cost me another 500 dollar knitting machine for sure.

I'm gonna shoot it, I can't lock it up, I have no safe but not only that but the main reason I bought one is to shoot it and become intimately familiar with it... no not that intimately!

Look at me, the newest addition to the AK world!

Thanks for the advice.

Welcome to the ak club. Sounds like you got a hell of a deal. Tell your wife that you will make money on that AK "if and when" you sell it.

SWEET! Mags alone are about $200. Even if you find some 'proof of firing' under the bit of cosmo, it is still a fair deal as a nice $600 top quality AK. And real pre-ban; enjoy the hot tub with the wife :)
