    You know, I never thought I'd see a WASR that I paid $350 for new in 2003 that now runs over $850 at a local shop. They only had three left, too. They did have a number of the PAP pistols, though; two in 7.62 and half a dozen or so in .223. They had a rule, though; one centerfire rifle, one rimfire rifle, one centerfire "high-cap" pistol, and one rimfire pistol per customer.

    That's actually what I was thinking, with the current mess. This was at probably the highest-priced shop around, too; they don't normally even like to carry AKs.

    Yep... $850 is the norm for a WASR around my area too.

    Even before new town a WASR in my parts was selling for 600 in a shop. After taxes its pretty close to $650.

    Rifles: not too bad. Magazines: pretty bad. Ammunition: really bad.

    For me - local rifles, mags and ammo are just pretty much unavailable.

    Some handgun ammo, but not much.
    Online 5.56/.223 is hard to come by and high priced.
    And Bulgarian Circle 10 5.56 mags went from $32 to $40 to $45 to $65.
    If there are any left at all...

    I got my AK, mags and ammo by the skin of my teeth.
    I've never seen anything like this before.

    I was able to pick up some 40 rounders Bulgarian mags for 20 bucks last week. Glad I was able to get those. The Draco AK's are priced over 900 bucks now. Crazy...

    I'm with you, I've been contemplating selling my Vector AK with Circle 10 mags and ammo. Just a question of whether I want to part with an AK potentially forever.

    Saw one at a gun show today for $999.

    I just traded a guitar for a wasr10. The nice thing is, I got the guitar for free. :)

    Wow, and to think I thought I got an ok deal on mine for $415 about a year ago. I'd hate to see how much my mint norinco sks-m with thumbhole stock would go for right now. Especially since I got it for $125 with three mags and a little over 100rnds! Granted that was about 6 years ago and the guy was in need of money pretty bad.

    when we start thinking that 850 ain't bad for a wasr ... the world is coming to an end for sure.

    Let me know if you do! Lol. I'm thinking I'm going to try to find something in 5.45x39, since I already have several hundred rounds of it.

    I thought AKs were too much when I paid +- $500 for a WASR and Polish underfolder about 2 years ago. I am told by a local shop they didn't buy any WASR 10s when recently available because the distributor is charging $900 for them, because most of them come from only a few distributors.

    Buddy has a SKS with a 30 rd mag he wants $350 for it's in good shape. Sound like a good deal considering the times?

    Even before the panic it sounds like a decent deal. Now it is a great deal.
