I'm sure most of you know that I recently picked up a Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 recently at a steal, the caveat being there's a cleaning rod stuck in the barrel (well, two, a beater-rod and the actual cleaning rod). Going to be sending it off to Smith & Wesson here pretty soon, sometime after August when I have a check that isn't going towards anything driving related (in the process of getting my license back, lol). They are either going to remove the rods for free if the barrel isn't damaged, with me paying the shipping both ways, or they are going to replace the barrel for $130. What I am wondering is whether or not I should keep it, or put it up for trade (possibly with some cash as well) for an AK patterned rifle (preferably a 74 variant). Would this be a pretty good deal? Anyone on here interested?
