    Deal or No Deal

    A work buddy asked me if I wanted to buy his AK-47. He's had it for maybe 3 yrs. Fired less than 500 rnds through it. It's a Romanian AK, Not sure who built the kit. Has a Tap-co adjustable stock (AR15) and wood fore-end (was like this when he bought it). Also has a cheapo Bi-pod and red dot that he put on himself. With the gun I also get about 400 rnds of ammo. He wants $400.00, is this a good deal or no. I was going to make a trip to CMP (only about 90 min from my house) to buy a Garand next month. So do I buy the AK and put off the Garand for a few months or pass on the AK and get the garand.

    One word! Obama!

    Get it while you can. It Isn't going to get much cheaper than that with the 400 rounds of ammo.

    Is this a trick question? The ammo alone almost makes it worth it...buy it!
