pump action AK?!?

My LGS has had a Century pump action AK on consignment for several weeks. Anyone else seen one of these before? Can it be converted to semi auto? The asking price is $400.

I did a quick search and found this;
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It is the same chrome lined barrel as used on other Romaniam AK rifles just that it is turned down to one diameter from the gas block foreword and doesn't have the gas hole drilled in it. So making it into a semi auto would required a gas hole drilled in the barrel and a new gas block,handgaurd retatiner,handguards,piston,gas tube,and US parts added. Just not cost effective as a hi cap WASR-10 rifle would cost less.
Century Arms had the pump AK rifles made and imported them to sell in California. A pump AK rifle that could use hi cap AK mags would have sold like ice water in hell there. But California firearms laws had changed by the time the rifles were imported and offered for sale by Century Arms. So they were banned for sale in California. With no where to sell them sales of a $498 pump AK rifle were pretty much zero till they dropped the price to under $250.

I'm guessing they look like this;
Romanian Par-1 AK Pump Rifle
The Kalashnikov Klub

for 35¢ I'd go for it


Seriously that's interesting, I never even knew such a thing existed. It would certainly conserve ammo at the range.
