FYI, Bulgarian made AK-47's for $345 in Allentown PA.
 
Just thought I would share. I just got back form a gun show where I picked up another AK, my other one is Chinese made :(

The new one is Bulgarian (Milled Reciever) none of that stamped shyt.

Eagle Arms in Allentown pa is getting a new case of 7.62x54R AK-47's next week from a Russian warehouse. They were made, packed in crates, and put into storage since 1972. Only $345 with 2 30round bananna clips and pristine stock! pick one up, seriously.

I love guns :)


Guess what Im getting.

these are still legal for sale?

Dave 01-28-2007 02:34 PM

not still, are again ;) bulgaria makes good quality stuff, real nice folks too!

Drrft sure you got that right? Aks are 7.62x39. sure you didnt mean dragunov or svt?

S4toSTI 01-28-2007 02:36 PM

Ak's are legal.

Ronin Tactical 01-28-2007 02:40 PM

Yes, don't know what a 7.62x54 matches, but that's not an AK-47. Perhaps a Dragunov SVD....

DoubleOughtCel 01-28-2007 03:07 PM

Do you need a full auto permit to buy it? Or can I go pick one up and get the permit later. I just put in my app. for my CCW permit.

Sorry man you gotta give us something. :wink:

Raven18940 01-28-2007 03:58 PM

FYI 7.62X54R (R stands to rimmed, not russian) is the russian full size .30 cal round, equivalent to 7.62 Nato, or .30-06. It was used mostly in the Mosin Nagant M91/30 during world war 1 and 2, but it's perhaps better known for its use in the Dragunov.

Can anyone answer this for me?

Will@TurboTek 01-28-2007 04:29 PM

I kinda hope you need the permit to buy them...lol

DoubleOughtCel 01-28-2007 04:39 PM

I don't know if you do, I didn't need a permit to buy my S&W. Just need to get a permit to conceal it, and thats as easy as filling out the paperwork and paying the $46.

Drftpretty 01-28-2007 04:58 PM

Im 99% sure.

The Eagle Arms guy sold me a crate of 1080 7.62x54r rounds for $80 and said they would work for sure. It was a gun show special. I was told the SKS and these AK's fired the same round.

If you guys are looking for something else they also had Russian made M99's. Bolt action rifles that fired 7.62x54r rounds and were still oiled from the factory, never fired, and sealed in boxes in 1947! The guns were Beautiful. I was thinking about buying one. They came with spike bayonetts and flip up sights. I cant believe how these guys can get their hands on cases of WWII russian sniper rifles that were buried in some Russian warehouse for 60 years. Its amazing to me.

They had already sold 12 AK-47's because they were so nice and so cheap. Every other dealer at the show was charging over $500 for European AK's.

I gave a $100 deposit and will be picking one up at the shop next week. They have a guy in the former Soviet Bloc who deals with the soviet government and they're arms division.

I had bought the chinese one like 7 years ago. It was in a crate of used ak's that came from russia. They were used in Iraq by Russian soliders so they were presumed to be Russian. My luck that the one I bought was a chinese one. I found that out when my reciever started to give me problems and took it back to them.

I wasn't mad at them. It is a 30 year old assault rifle after all.

The newest cases are 100% Russian Army OEM. I figure Ill get a new one and keep it forever :)

I have pictures of my ****ty chinese AK. If you guys wanna see that.

TROLL 01-28-2007 05:11 PM

if i was putting together the facts, they would be:

multiple people who know what they are talking about said that these are not AKs.

these are prices a lot cheaper than the other AKs at the show.

hmm....

Drftpretty 01-28-2007 05:16 PM

The problem is that there are 13 differnt countries wich produced the AK-47 in differnt forms/processes lol. I had to get cleared and on the paper work it readS "Bulgarian made SA95 milled AK47"

Eagle Arms is the only dealer FEDERALLY Licensed to import cases from Europe. Sometimes they have good shipments, sometimes bad.

All the other dealers had Custom/ paratrooper AK's imported individually for collectors. Those guns that were $500 were in the factory cardboard boxes with OEM paper work, folding stock, and 100 round drums.

SKS and AK do fire the same round, but it's 7.62x39mm.

This is what you want

This is what you got

Drftpretty 01-28-2007 05:29 PM

^ See, thats what I thought.

I just called Eagle Arms, apparently I confused the ammo guy because I was also looking at the M99's whiCh are 7.62x54r.

I also found this which makes me think that I got some sort of NATO round. I thought that the Russian ones fired .54r and the chinese ones fired .39. The case that I bought is also surplus.

AK101 - the 5,56 mm Kalashnikov submachine gun for cartridge 5,56x45 NATO
AK102 - the same but with a short barrel
AK103 - the 7,62 mm Kalashnikov submachine gun for cartridge 7,62x39
AK104 - the same but with a short barrel
AK105 - 5,45 mm Kalashnikov submachine gun with a short barrel for cartridge 5,45x39.


My bad, in any case, Eagle Arms will have them in stock.

Russian AK's 7.62x39mm $345 next week only.

I never said I was a gun expert lol

why do you need a fully auto machine gun...?

Im guessing you can do that. I didnt really get into details about it. There are certain restricions though. You cant have a single blemish on your record and you can't travel with it out of state.

But yes, $200 and its a lifetime thing. Unless its revoked for some reason.

Theres also a Florida License to Carry or something that once you take the class you can carry in 28 states. PA being one of them. But thats for Handguns, not AK's

To protect yourself and your family! :bigeek:

Drftpretty 01-28-2007 05:39 PM

Also, they told me about some werid news letter called "Shotgun Times" Supposedly you can find Full auto Recievers for like $50 and all sorts of stuff that'll get you thrown in jail. Hairpull triggers, nade launcher fittings, etc.
