Certainly not what I would call a deal, but not really what I would call a huge rip off either.

Even before the russian import sanctions (which has nothing to do with WASRs, but you know how people panic) they were selling at every gunshop around town here for $625 like hot cakes. They couldn't keep them on the shelves at that price.

Considering it comes with a case of ammo, $950 isn't horrible price. $325 for a case of ammo in the gun shop isn't unheard of either.

Not a great price on the package, but not a total rip off either.

I paid around 350 for both of mine as well. But these days they are going for more that 600 all day long.

Mine was just over $400 after everything and 500 rounds of ammo. No way would I ever pay over $500 even then it would have to be some insane situation. After mention of ammo cost in some areas I am glad that they are not that bad in my area.

$450 for the gun and $250 max for 1000 rounds. So to me seems a bit high. Guess it sucks to live elsewhere.

Sarcasm doesn't pick up well in my OP I guess.

Oh, I know you were being sarcastic. It does seem crazy but yea prices and availablity really do vary a lot area by area.

As far as AK's go for local availability in my Area, you can pretty much find WASRs everywhere for 625ish. Occasionally you'll see (or used to anyway) a converted saiga for a couple of hundred more but that's about it.

I pretty much always get my ammo online so I could pick up 1000 rounds cheaper, but most local gun shops and shows I see around here it would be over $300 for the ammo.

I totally agree it's not a deal. While I love both of the WASRs I've had. I can't imagine paying $600 for them. I'd rather save a little longer and get an arsenal or something else a bit nicer at that price range.

Then again, the last time I had an SKS they were like $125 bucks max and people are paying $400 for them these days.

I've seen cases of ammo for 225, that would make the gun 725! they will probably charge about 50 to ship everything and then you have your transfer fee. In total, you're probably looking at spending 1050, or more for a gun that cost me 320.

I personally think this is a horrible deal!

Yea, but when did you pay that for it?

I'm just saying that you have to take into account current prices.

I was shocked to see what WASRs were going for these days too. But they must be worth that much to lots of people. Places have a hard time keeping them in stock.

I bought mine in 2007 or 2008, can't remember exactly without looking it up.

They are not $700 guns, or even $500 guns, so it's irrelevant when I bought mine.

A WASR-10 should not sell for the same price as an Arsenal just like an Arsenal should not sell for the same price as a Norinco!
