Found this for sale locally, curious about the value of it. I don't know much about 'collectable' AKs. It is supposed to be all numbers matching, but I noticed in some other pics that it DOES NOT have flat back mags. This is his description:

This is a one owner, preban underfolding AK47, in the box with three mags, original bayo, sling, oiler, and leather sling clip. I have fired way less than 200 rounds through it. This is not a assembled rifle, this is an original Norinco underfolder with the nice wood, flash hider, and bayo lug on it. It is in nearly new condition.

I would guess he wants about a grand for it. 750.00 to 850.00 would be a fair price. They make excellent shooters since it's been shot already, the collectable value has dropped. 750.00 is what I would try for if you are going after it.

I would offer $500 and go up to $750 max. Cold hard cash talks. He can only say no thanks if he doesn't want to sell.

This may be nothing, but it's boxed up different from other Norinco 56S-1 rifles that I've seen.
i noticed this also. check the rifle out up close before you jump on it.

Thanks for the feedback. He was initially asking $1200, then backed down to $1000. I have seen similar rifles go for $1300+ on gunbroker

I didnt realize shooting one devalued it THAT much.
