Long time lurker, new poster. What would a Hungarian AK 47 wood thumbstock in pristine condition fetch nowadays? Imported by KBI of PA long ago. Would such a rifle be transferable in CA? Please help?

I think you re refering to the Hungarian FEG SA-85M. According to some people, they think it's worth around $3000 to $3500 ;)

Realistically though, I'd say between $600 to $700. The SA-85M is not listed and is transferable.

The selling price on the SA-85M on calguns, appears to be around $800-900.
They were sold here this year in that price range. However, it took several days/weeks for them to be sold in that price range.
It would sell faster if you tried to sell it in the $500-700 range.

There is a big difference between pre and post import ban. IIRC KBI imported only post-bans, but I could be wrong.

Currently, post-bans go for $600-700 used, closer to $1k new in box.

remember thumbhole stock is a no no unless 10 round magazine is fixed! otherwise that makes it a evil AW!

Hey socom, I guess you forgot the BB. Try searching and be amazed. The mag does not have to be permanently fix. As long as a BB is installed you can have all the tacticool features you want plus it must be a min. length of 30" and no more than 10 round mags.

Price is right on the $$$ JeffM but FEG had made multiple styles of Pre-ban from Fixed Stocks (http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=107827996) and Underfolders (http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=108377405) to Post-Ban Thumb-Hole Stocks (http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=107588364)that were Imported by KBI (Kassnar Imports Harrisburg, PA)

Pre-Bans are fetching from $1300 used - $1500+ NIB on GB.

BB is legally a "fixed" mag. aks cannot be practically loaded w/o mag removal.
