What is a fair price for a Polish AKMS underfolder (complete rifle, not a kit)? Also, did century build any of these because I heard that they are not as high quality as some other ones. I've seen this type of AK at the local gunshows for $450 but I was wondering why the prices online were so much more ($650+).

ALSO, while I have a thread on this, are there any major differences between soviet and polish AKMS rifles?

:shock: Well I had a few of the "real" Polish made AKMs in my hand,Not kit builds,And the workmanship was of the highest quility.They were dated from as far back as 1978 to 1981,I for sure would take one to work any day,And the same for the Polish AK 47 -Which in factory original finish,they were a high polished blue,very little machine marks on the outer receiver,and that was in the lighting groves on the side.Now as far as compareing the Polish AKM to the Russian AKM-I would say they are the same,as far as quality goes.
Now if your compareing them to any kit build rifles-That is a far different story.You have to take in consideration who the builder was.I seen some real slick builds,Some as good as the factory made rifle.I own two rifles that would make a perfact display of how a real amature builds a rifle-I wouldn't sell these rifles to my worst enemy.And the kits were like new.So its all up to who the builder was.I know this post might upset some guys who collect Russian.But the Polish AMKs are as well made and finished as the Russian made ones from what I seen.And about the only Russian made kits that made it into the US,Were the PLO captured ones.Some more used then others-Some as new as well.But the Polish/Bulgarian were brought in by the big lots.And from old military stores of the selling country.That is it!-I'm outta here :wink: -My best-Frenchy(say NO! to hillary :bullshit: bill :bullshit:

The ones for $450 I think were done by century, thats why I asked.

I too think that the polish AKs are easily on par with the russian ones in terms of quality (Poland did manufacture the most after all).

But still, what might an average one sell for?

i can tell you this. if you see a polish underfolder for $450 you better snatch it. century doesn't make anything. they either have it made which is very recently or import it. the reason the polish guns are $650 or higher is because the kits are $400, a reciever is $100, the compliance parts are another $50, plus the labor to assemble and either finish the reciever or completely refinish the entire gun. therefore i doubt there are any $450 polish underfolders unless the guy has had it for years.
