You know for how much Century will sell a FA AK in very good condition to a police department?

Go on, take a guess. $2500 $1500? $1000?

$250.

I'll take the Spanish "C" Cetme for $200 or the Browning 1919A4 for $250.

It seems funny though, I'm not aware of any police departments that are issuing AK styled weapons. These are being sold to class 3 dealers, because no PD is running AKs.

Possibly, but I'm sure Century would love to crack that market.

A true representation of what those weapons are really worth in a free market. I'm depressed....

All their stuff looks like a monkey beat it into shape with a rock. Century stuff never floats my boat.

Although, I do concede that I like the fact they try to make shooting affordable to all, but man, their stuff is hit or miss.

That's even an inflated price.

Rommy AK's in quantity go for under $100.00, the Polish Ak's that General Singlaub brought in for the Contra's were 120.00 way back when.

Those prices are for new rifles...

That's insane! Why so cheap! Look at the M16-a1...it says LIKE NEW - $500!

Why the hell does my disabled AR cost three times as much!

And they still want us to think the Cartels in Mexico are paying $16000 for full auto guns from the US, instead of $100 from suppliers in Asia.

I believe that any sort of full-auto AK's they are getting are coming from farther south - there are plenty of Contra/Nicaraguan leftover AK's down there.

Any recent stuff is coming straight from the Mexican gov.org.

Hence the US markings!

I was just using Asia as one example. Most the weapons they are using are of course coming from South America via suppliers(Asia/Eastern Europe) that were established years ago during various civil wars and revolutions.

I would take several cases of the German 308! thats a hell of a price considering it goes for 600 or more online elsewhere.

I hope that we will get one day (soonish) to the point where a purchase of a full-auto weapon will not be restricted by anything other then felony status of the buyer.

Would there be any legal issues if a class III FFL were to purchase a large quantity of these machine guns from Century and then chop up the receivers and sell the remains as parts kits? This seems like an untapped resource of parts kits if that is legal.

Anything currently imported live into the US is a post-dealer sample, and an NFA dealer can buy a specific example based on a LEA love letter.

No possible source of kits there.

I know of SOT's that have cut up live guns and sold parts, but they're generally not cutting up stuff that has much service life left (LE trade ins) and even then they're not inexpensive.

As an FFL/SOT, that is not market price. Those are below market price. If Century is selling it, it's junk.

Can I just pay the 200$ for milled AK kit?

Hey Bill, what do you know about the contras and the Nicaraguan civil war of years gone by?

WTF is up with the picture of the M16? Someone failed with photoshopping its magazine in.

But then again, for those prices they probably used MS paint.
