I got this AK variant back in 1998, as a trade for fixing some guy's computer, not sure how much the guy paid, he bought it new prior to 1998 and NEVER used it. I like to get some opinions on what I may be able to sell it for.

Make: Kassnar
Model: SA85M
Caliber: 7.62x39
Rounds shot: about 600
Magazine: includes 6 x 30 round. No dents, no rust, just some wear on paint.
Condition: External looks almost like new. The front sling has been partially sawed off (don't even ask why, but it does not affect anything at all, aside from not being able to hook a strap to it). The first picture is what the gun originally looks like with the wood stock and forward grip, I still have those never used wooden parts. The second pic has the stock and the plastic forward grip that I added on.

Also, the handgun in the bottom pic, trying to see how much that is worth. Bought it new back in 1987. All I remember is that it was the cheapest .45 that I could afford back then.

Make: Star
Model: 1911
Caliber: .45
Barrel Length: 4"
Rounds shot: about 500
Magazine: includes 2 x 6 round
Condition: about 95% like new, no rust, no scratches. The original wooden grip was replaced with some rubber grip.


Thanks in advance

The AK, I see them go for $700-800. The last one I saw was $800, but it was NIB, unfired and in the original box. There're few enough of them.

The Star handgun, $350-450.

Those KBI-imported FEG SA-85M were some of the nicest quality AKs ever imported. The post-ban models were imported from around 1992 onwards. They can fetch any where between $700 to $900.

Nope, I don't think so. Do check for yourself though. The link is on the top of every page.

Is that a registered AW?

If so, I wouldn't sell it. Just put a pistol grip stock on it and change out the parts for 922r.

If it is not a registered AW and it looks like it does on the bottom pic, put a magazine lock on it ASAP.

You'll never be able to buy something in that configuration again barring dramatic changes in legislation. If you have it as a registered AW I'd keep it. You don't have to worry about fixed mags or mag capacity with the mags that came with it.

You cannot sell a CA registered assault weapon to another Californian. That being said, the post ban KBI marked AK's range from $500-$700.

A preban, Kasner marked one can go for $900 plus depending on which stock configuration it has.

Both versions are offlist.

I'd personally pay $650-$750 for it, but others may pay more or less.

What are you doing with the wood stock set? Wanna sell to the set to me? I have a FEG barreled receiver sitting around doing nothing that I'd like to put back together one of these days, but it's missing a few parts.

I'm planning on selling the original stock and forward grip with the rifle. But, I may sell them separately, if so, I'll post again.

I am also gonna sell 5 to 6 / 30 round used steel mags(disassembled), each one as a kit, all in very good condition, as replacement parts for existing high cap mags. Each kit comes "COMPLETE" with all parts.

But, the current parts on it are neither a pistol grip nor a thumbhole stock (I guess it's not considered as a thumbhole stock)

Both of the stocks you show in those pictures ARE CONSIDERED THUMBHOLE STOCKS. It is OK for you to own it in that configuration since you registered it before the ban, but it will NOT be OK to sell it to another party in CA unless you remove the stock or put a bullet-button on it.

As for the 30 round magazines: you can sell those to someone out of state, or you can disassemble them and sell them as rebuild kits to people in CA. You cannot legally sell those to people in CA while they are assembled.

I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that it must FIRST be "unregistered". Then, it may be sold in CA.

a register AW that can use high cap mags in California?

Definitely keep it, $500-$800 is not worth losing that nice of a pre ban setup.

Don't sell it!!! Put a folding stock, flash hider,bayonet,pistol grip on it. As a CA. registered AW it is priceless. Most guys in CA. with OLL's would give their left nut to own a registered AW. They can have my AW when they pry it out of my cold dead hands.

i had a chance a while ago to buy an AK47 and i looked t probably over 100 different guns. i was a resident of washington then and now im in nevada but i had lot to chose from. if you like the new AKs with the plastic crap on them your looking from $700 up nd if you want a classic wood your looking $350 - $500. But in my search i found something i liked better and that was a romanian RPK (aes-10b) and i brought it for about $800 its only woth $600 but it was the only one i ever found in WA. and i like it better than a standard. as for california prices im not sure but i wouldnt pay no more than $450 for an AK standard.

Selling a RAW is like Passing up on some great 'steak'. You just don't do it.

Keep the lower, or stripped lower of the registered Bushmaster.


The stripped lower is only worth $80 or so out of state. Keep it, so if you ever have the need, you can build it into a new AR-15.

Well, at least you will have a good story about the ones that got away.
