Research indicates that these were caught up in customs, Keng sued the Feds and won, and appx 4000 were released in 1996. As part of the deal, Keng had to sporterize them. Any idea on the value of the PT? I know 6 months ago, that 800 to 1000 would be reasonable. Please help a brother out.
As far as the value today in this market...
That said, IMO it's easily $300 'nicer' than your AMD. I'd go for it, cut the weld and replace the furniture. You'd have yourself an excellent AK when you were done.
