    Stopped by the place near my house to have a look around.

    they had some pretty nice looking AK variants. Picked up a WASR-10 and the price listed was 749.00 used. :iough:

    If it *was* an NDM, then it's a fucking steal. If it's a PSL, it's a huge ripoff.

    That's how just about every local gun shop is around here. My father and I may be opening our own store soon since all the other ones suck.

    I didn't see it marked anywhere. And I never cared enough about them to know the difference.

    $680 for a glock 34 at my local shop
    that's about $100 more than I am hoping/willing to pay

    WASR-10 at Classicarms.us

    GREAT DEAL ITEM # ROM-AK...$379.95

    Order it, have it shipped to that store, pay transfer fee, show dude the price.

    Better yet, show dude the price first, ask him how his is different, and tell him you'll either buy from him at a reasonable price ($380 plus classicarms shipping cost + what the FFL transfer would be) or you'll just order it online and have it transferred to another store and he'll never get your business again :dunno:

    They're an OK beginning AK, some have issues with crooked sights and shoddy workmanship. A better one would be the GP 75's, or the Yugo M70's.

    First thing I ask at overpriced gunstores: "Do you do transfers for internet sales?"

    they usually begrudgingly say yes, when they realize im calling them out on their prices are too friggin high and at least want to make $20 over nothin by accepting an sale from someone else, usually online
