    I took this AK apart and painted it with high-heat engine paint. It looks really good, but when I went to put the front handguard back on I couldn't get the little lever to close and busted it... so being the impatient person I am I just had a friend weld the thing in place. :(

    The gun works great, but if anyone ever wants to replace that part of the stock it will require grinding off the welds and then either welding it back up or buying the little lever and drilling out the old one to fix it correctly.

    I paid $350 new (final, out the door price). Considering what I have done to it, what would it be worth? $200?

    :rolleyes:

    Those parts aren't hard to find. No offense meant, but people like you are why there are good deals at gun shows. (like the 150 dollar 7400 carbine in '06 that was missing an ejector, or the 240 dollar absolutely cherry number4 mk2 I now own after paying 180 that was missing the front sight protector screw.

    www.e-gunparts.com <---- go there. order the part. install it. be happy.

    Hmmm...


    Considering what was done, I'd give $175-$200 in a private sale for the weapon. It would make a good candidate for a "beater" truck gun.

    Good Shooting

    Easily worth $200...if you were local I would buy it for $200. You'll probably get the most if you can sell if face to face to someone and show them whats going on with it.

    I know what you mean. It was my first attempt at ever completely disassembling a rifle, so I forgive myself. When I start a project I can't stand to leave it in pieces when I'm so close to finishing so that's why I went with the quick weld job since my friend had the mig accessible -- definitely not that way to do it but I wasn't about to wait 4 whole days for a part to come in the mail! :)
