Re: What does "pre-ban" mean since 2004?...
It means very little for domestic or domestic built weapons, preban to me is pre 1989. They have not gone down and are still very much in demand.
Newer built AK`s are a far cry if your looking at kit guns built on American receivers and without chrome lined barrels (also built here because of the barrel ban)
Upper end AK`s over $650.00+ like KREBB`s and such are quality built and priced the same......most over $1,000.00
Chrome lined bores and barrels, many using stashed original barrels along with upper end ones bringing up the slack.
No more real AUG`s/AMT`s/VALMENTS/GAL`s/AKS-M`s-RPK/ect......
Bottom line to your question.......NOTHING!
