I am relatively new to the forum and firearms in general. My first rifle purchase was a Yugoslavian SKS; I love that gun, but I also wanted to make my next purchase a rifle of the detachable magazine category. I went to the Tampa Gun Show today- opened at 8:00 am and I was in line witnessing guys wheeling out hand trucks of ammunition by 8:10. The prices in general were very reflective of the current pricing trends.

I spotted this SA 85m and I found it a very handsome gun. The black finish is 99%+ and the wood is a nice blonde color. It was offered at $850 in 'like new' condition; this gun is flawless and spotless. I offered $700 and the seller accepted. It was not sold with any magazines though! Steel AK magazines were almost non-existent at this show; I settled on 5 PRO-MAG composite magazine @ $15 each and I was able to find a 40 round mag.

Does anyone know of a matching beechwood pistol grip/stock set? I would like to put this to pistol grip and either a wodden stock or perhaps a folding style stock.

I used Eric at w-w firearms to deban my SA 85M and am very pleased with the
results.

You'll need some US compliance parts in addition.

Becareful with the 40 rounder. Some states (Mine) limit high capacity mags at 30 or 31 (Except .22lr) I dont know about Flordia, but you might check.

Otherwise, looks good
