Default Post-Election SAIGA 74 clearing houses!!!

I have seen quite a many Izhmash 47's and 74's on the market as I suspected right after the election and panic cycle crashed and burned.
Am I the only one noticing it ??

Looks like many fully converted Izhmash 74's for $800 range. I'm sure a few were 3rd quarter pickups from Fleet Farm.

I saw those, thought about them.

Especially the top one since it's not much of a drive.

The price kept me away though.

Also it looks like the previous owner attempted to cut a bolt hold open notch into the safety and cut the wrong side down.

Ehhh not so go good locally. At least nothing in 5.45 or 5.56. Then again this may not be a bad thing.

A fireman here locally sold an SGL20 as Saiga. They went to check prices online and he set price at $600.

I told my buddy it was worth way more. He got it for $550. smh!

Yeah those are the same rifles picked up for half that price less than a year ago. But still a good deal I guess considering.

If Trump gets Saiga's off the embargo list, we'll see prices return to a more palatable level.

Until then, the free market will set the price on Saiga's.

God when I found out about the sale for those I hit 3 different Fleet Farms. Hillary was good for business when she was running. I'm just glad I was able to sell them all before the election was over.

I still see saigas 74s for sale on Gunbroker for 800-900, doubt they will ever get that or close. Funny thing is when you look at the people selling them: all their "locations" are listed in states that have Fleet Farms

Even if Trump rescinds the sanctions on Rostec , you won't see SAIGA's for $300 again.

I would put $$$ on it. NRA would fight it tooth and nail because they will be funded heavily by those threatened by that price point.

Plus.....I don't know if you noticed how much more Russian stuff is going for these days.....VEPR , Zenitco, etc.....insane markup

You found mine. Had it since 2010, definitely not a new purchase or one of those century conversions. http://www.armslist.com/posts/646602...um---cerakoted
In all seriousness don't hold your breath on the sanctions being lifted. Doubt anyone will lift a finger to help "Russian" business. NRA definitely won't. If magic happened and sanctions were lifted, I would guess saiga's would not sell for less than $599.

If you guys think the NRA wants to fight for or protect milsurp and AK collectors/shooters then you are fools.
NRA is in the FUDD gun and new modern black rifle and pistol markets hip pocket. They could give a damn less about us and matter of fact rather see russian imports go under to seize the competition for more domestic Fudd crap.

Furthermore so many optimists here. Constant "sanction lifted" post and threads. Sorry to be a downer but it's not going to happen.

Yeah I have been watching those, just can't bring myself to pay that price. After transfer fees and shipping it's still over $800

Doesn't matter if his old man Donald or Congress don't kill off Obama's executive order, and they or the ATF don't kill off GCA '68 and the Bush and Clinton Assault Weapons Bans provisions that still exist.

Biggest reason why prices are so low is hopes that Trump or Congress or the ATF will kill off some of these laws, and we don't have Obama trumping up fears of an assault weapons ban or moratorium and inducing panic buying.
