Value of SA-93 rifle?

Wife has decided to sell her rifle. SA-93 Bulgarian milled, excellent condition with maybe 500 rounds through it. Trigger feels great, very accurate as well. Has a Kobra Collimator red dot sight on it and one of the older Dragunov-looking pistol grip stocks that is black and high-impact plastic (?) - basically a "thumbhole" without really looking like a thumbhole stock.

A bunch of extra mags as well (some metal, some plastic waffle).

Any idea of the range I could be looking at to sell it?

Difficult to say. New, with red dot sight, you'd be looking at about $800-$900 for an Arsenal (they no longer list your exact model). However, there are alternatives that cost less at the same quality (e.g. Vepr). Also, yours is used, which drops its value - it's not as if there aren't plenty more AK's out there! I'd say somewhere in the $600 to $700 range is your top value, and you might have to break the gun and sight and sell each separately to reach that value.

VEPRs are milled receiver?

The SA-93 is very similar to the later SLR-95 and SLR-96. As such, they'll command a decent price these days.

I'll have to inventory everything, take pics, and give it a shot on the msg. boards and see what I can get - thanks for the info, guys.

Veprs are, I believe, a stamped receiver, but it is an RPK receiver, so it is nice and beefy. So, kinda a different way to get the same effect. Heavy, too.
