Re: Question about Buying AKs (wasn't sure where to put this)
Welcome to the boards, Kasatka. Myself, I was lucky enough to buy a Norinco AK, Type 56, for $450 before the banning began. I've been delighted with it and have yet to see anything at a gun show that I like any better. The wood stocks are pretty -- much above the current crop of Eastern bloc rifles -- and the trigger is light as a feather. The fit & finish are all around excellent and it shoots great. Judging by some recent auctions, my Norinco may now be worth closer to $800.
This thread was begun back in 09/04, but if one were to ask me today, I'd still recommend holding out for a lightly used Chinese or Russian example.
