OP, you hit a home run for a first AK not to mention the collector market. Congrats.
Nice Steyrs hovered around $3 - $3.5K long before the wuflu. $2,500 would've still been a fantastic deal in 2018. Ask me how I know. 💸💸💸I was a little shocked at those GB auction prices also, but I also know Steyr Maadis were $2500 before the scamdemic panic.
