    Curious for the opinion of WOMD.

    Someone locally is selling a Romanian AK for $550OBO. Here's part of the ad. It seems a bit generic, but I dunno.

    "I'm selling my Romanian WASR AK47. This is the perfect beginner rifle! It's in perfect working order. I clean this gun religiously. I've upgraded the stock and handle to lightweight plastic. It comes w/ 4 30 round magazines-1 of them a Plastic Pro Mag 30 round magazine worth $80. I also had the insides polished for smoother action and faster fire. This gun is not automatic and is fully legal. I have a flash suppressor that is uninstalled. Gun had the insides polished and sighted at BullsEye in Lawrenceville. This gun is very accurate and won't seize on you. All 4 mags go through the rounds perfectly. It comes w/ magazine pouch, full cleaning kit, operations manual, box, 200 round bullet box, and about 80 rounds of ammo including 20 hi poly rounds."

    What do you think? Good Deal? Bad Deal?

    Thread somewhere around here from with in the last couple days about WASR's on sale for $379, and unconverted ones for $299.

    For $550 I'd just spend the extra $50 and get a lancaster or ssr from atlantic.

    Cool, I really appreciate the advice. I thought I'd snap it up since it was local, but definitely won't since it's a shitty deal. I had a gut feeling an AK even with a few access.. for $550 seemed high.

    Shitty deal, from a guy who seems to be hoping to scam those not in the know. Lets look closer though:

    WTF is a beginner AK? Fischer Price build this shit? Probably better them than the drunken meth addicts at Century.

    And you've probably fucked it up in religiously epic ways too. I have visions of some tard raping the bore of his rifle with a steel rod crying out to teh Jesus about copper fouling.

    "I hit up the newest Cheaper than Dirt catalog and scored all the injection molded plastic fantastic shit that they offered. My rifle now has a stock that folds, collapses, extends in 4 dimensions, and sits 10" below sight level"

    Oh, and my rifle has something called a "handle" on it. I stole it off a garden utensil.


    "I'm a horrific meth addict and traded my anal virginity and $80 for some rock and this magazine." Seller is obviously high if he thinks that shit will even fit in his AK to function, let alone worth $80.

    On day 5 of a week long meth binge, I broke out my dremel tool and went hog wild polishing everything I could find because I couldn't stand the feel of unpolished metal (I'm OCD). I ended up fucking something up, and now my gun doubles and nearly fires out of battery.

    "By accurate, I can occasionally hit a man sized target at 25 yards."

    I'm also throwing in all the worthless shit I have laying around that looks like it might belong with the rifle. Also included are 20 hi-polygon rounds, which are obviously better than the lower-poly count rounds that everyone else uses.

    Show the guy an old ad where they were selling for $300, and lowball him for $350. Cook up some baking soda, and pass it off as crack to sweeten the deal.

    And they do shitty conversions that make the mags not fit so well.

    When the mags wobble side to side, I consider it shitty.

    I guess this thread could be construed as a bad attempt at trolling :hs:
