Im looking to buy a russian late 70s AKMS parts kit and am curious what these are going for, and what they went for a few years ago when they were sold. The type of kit im looking for would have to be numbers matching and in excellent to like new condition. Did such a kit exist? Seems like all I see anymore are milled russian kits, or beat to hell AKM kits. Thanks!

those are going to be damn near impossible to find, most of the ones that came in were the PLO capture kits and were pretty rough.

When the last import of them came in the fall of 2004, they were selling for $150-250. That was for a handpicked at the importer kit... The trash sold by the large discount houses was less.

Few that have popped up since then have been listed for big money.. Think there is/was one on Gunbroker recently for about $900.

ETA-

Here it is, $895.

Was given a choice between several kits.

What is a late 70s Russian AKMS parts kit worth?

1. a right or left hand
2. a rusted out vovol
3. a right led above or below the knee depending on how much you like Russian parts kits

That kit on gunbroker, price seems high to me, but is that realistic of what these are worth now that the supply is gone? Also, are the trunions any good since they have been cut into?

I wouldn't pay more than $500 for one, but I already have several. It's all about what you want.

I think its overpriced.. The memory of $200 kits is too fresh. An an 1977 AKMS is not really unique (other then the fact its Russian).

Front trunnion looks usable. That was the main problem with kits from the import, trunnions cut into.
