    Ak 47

    My furnace man was over last night and told me he has 2, virgin ak 47's that were his dads and he would sell them. He's afraid of guns! One is a Russian build the other Chinese. They are pre ban, they have bayonets. Can anyone make a suggestion on a fair price or what they are worth.

    Cool Vinny, look at THREE.........

    for the Russian & $250-300 for the Chinese. Remember, where you are, its worth the premium for the OTB status. Good Luck....

    A friend of mine told me that a fellow that he works with traded an AK to an "IDIOT" even up for a pre 64 Model 70 in 30-06 last weekend.
    Due to the new president AK's and AR's are a hot item in a trade.

    Make certain

    That these AK aren't class III weapons. If they are, avoid them at all costs.

    Ak's seem to be garnering crazy prices, russians going for $700+ and some of the chinese $1000.

    If you can get the pair for under $1000 you are pretty much guranteed to turn an immediate proffit on them.

    There is no reason for them to sell for what they are selling, but thats the market.

    Paul H. is pretty close on prices. Everybody is going nut trying to avoid the coming Assault Weapons Ban. There will be one.
    Unfortunately New York state already enforces its own AW ban. Ak-47 are illegal in N.Y.
    The guns this guy has may be grandfathered in. I don't think he can sell the guns to a N.Y. state resident. He may be able to sell them to an out of state resident, I'm not sure about the out of state sales.

    Below is a link and the text from the NRA-ILA site concerning New York state gun laws.

    It shall be unlawful to possess any “assault weapon”
    or “large capacity ammunition feeding device.” So called
