Can I still get a parts kit cheap? Or would it be smarter to just buy a pre built AK? Resources?
The days of the $100 or less parts kit seem to be long gone. I was considering building a few in years past but I think I'd buy today if your goal is just to get a cheap AK.
Parts kits are rather pricey now a days, when you can find someone with them in stock... That said I see you live in this shithole state too which limits your complete rifle buying options too, about all you can get is a SAIGA and convert it yourself, try to find a WASR and probably pay $500, or I've seen Arsenals floating around in some shops.. If you can find a kit for a fair price and have the needed tools to build go for it.
I am actually living in PA now. Does this help me at all? Just moved so I'm not familiar with local gun laws.
Yep if your staying in PA and not planning on going back to NY with the rifle you wont need to worry about it being AWB compliant. You'll probably have to get your drivers license switched over to PA from NY before anyone will sell or do a transfer for you.
I've got two parts kits sitting around that I'm thinking of getting rid of so I can be lazy and just buy a converted Saiga from AIM. Does anyone know what parts kits are selling for now?
You should still be able to find a Romy kit for around 200, last I looked.
Depends, what kind of kits are they?
I think the $200 ones are the dark bore g's that use to sell for $79
I'm thinking romy but I can't remember for sure. I know I got them from AIM a few years back, and they are the paratrooper models with the forward pistol grip. Bores look good.
fixed stocks with the fwd grip? Yeah probably rommy.
That would be it. Any idea what they are selling for these days?
~$200 for decent bores and worn kits.
