Default AOA East German 74

The kit AOA had on gunbroker just sold for $3825. Iwould be happy if some more kits made it into the states but, if they're around that price I don't think I'd ever be able to justify buying one.

I was watching this for a little while at $1805 after I noticed the ad on their site. Not sure what to think of that final price, good for them?

I'm pretty much in the same boat. Hopefully if any more do end up coming in, they don't base the prices off of that.

A little while back a NOS East German CHF AK-74 barrel was sold on GunBroker.
If I remember correctly the auction closed around $900 for that 5.45X39 barrel.
I am thinking these buyers have been looking for EG 74 stuff for a very long time and know what its going to cost to be its owner.

Had a kit and barrel and sold them for $1500, 2 years ago. I had $1100 in it. My truck died and I needed another vehicle. I've got a Bulgy clone but will always regret that.

That was an awesome example and I figured it would sell at a high price but was stunned at the final price. That set the bar even higher and may end up bringing thing out of the woodwork.
