    Romanian WASR 10 AK47 with a 40 round mag, 6 position sliding stock, pistol grip, and handguard with rails. Also comes with original folding stock, sling, grip, and handguard. Looks to be in very good condition. They are asking $650.... Good/decent/bad deal?

    With today's AK prices, I'd say that deal is certainly fair, given the "extras" included. While AR prices sort of "settled down" AK prices have remained fairly high as of late

    I concur with this statement. If its a decent WASR-10 with non-canted sights and a nicely cut magwell and non-welded muzzle device, its a good price in today's market

    Thats a middle ground price. Not a smokin deal, but not a ripoff.

    Here in Missouri (KC area) they are back to pre panic prices. I watched the price on these things just go nutz.....Let me first say that these are gun show prices and you know how those are, but they are such fun, I love to people watch.

    Here they went from a pre insane price of about $500 NIB to a high of about $1200 for the same century WASR....some guys just scratched out last months price and over wrote it on the same price....now NIB they had tags on them of $650 and I still did not see anyone that was carrying around a new one. Now you can find them all day on local gun trader sites for $600-ish with things like extra mags and a few hundred rounds of ammo. And those seem to sit. Peoples brains are starting to turn back on again.

    Depends on the overall condition of the WASR.

    I've owned a WASR 10/63 before and I think they are usually overpriced for a bottom of the barrel AK. They are sub-$500 AK's to me.

    Regarding the value of the AK in question, I'd try to knock it down to $550 since it has some accesories and go from there. Make sure you inspect the rifle before buying. WASR's have some issues that its famous for i.e. canted front sights, crappy magwells, scratched up receivers, etc.
