Default Value on Polytech AKS 762 Spiker

I have the opportunity to buy a Keng (KFS) import AKS 762 with the spike bayonet. It's a CW prefix factory 386 gun in about 80% condition. No factory polytech mags. What's it worth?

80% I would say 1k to 1.5 max ..KFS are good to go guns but no box 80% means less in my book

Fixed stock I assume ?

I’d really need pics...Can’t visualize what 80% looks like tbh. Lots of blueing wear? Any rust? Wood condition? Typically one in fair-good condition goes for 1500-2000 shooter grade, no box, sling maybe couple mags. If it’s got a lot of wear 1500 would really be the sweet spot for it, anything less than 15 I’d get it regardless of condition as long as there is no rust.

Seems to be unfired. Piston and bcg are immaculate. No factory box or mags though. Has a sling. Bluing is great, and the inside of the gun looks spotless.

$1800-$2000 seems to be the going rate with no box.

I would agree, box or not in mint condition it's worth more.

I would love to find one locally in that price range.

Looking at the pic posted I'd say it could easily find a buyer for $1800-$2000. I'm guessing that's a light refection above the selector?

I wish I didn't get into chinese AK's so late. I got a couple "deals" but nothing to write home about.

Thats an egyptian sling BTW.

Crazy to think about what the value would be minus the ban factor. I got a deal on mine in 2008-ish for $875. Had to sell it during a rough patch. Anything pushing $2k is nuts to me.

Damn! Good looking gun. I guess the price was too good to pass up? One of these is a gotta have if I ever come across a deal on one. Congrats on the addition!

I still haven't purchased yet. But I'm really considering it. I'd have to sell my gen 4 POF p415 to afford it, but I could get it at $1400 out the door. And yes, that's a reflection above the selector. It has a selector scratch, like most AKs that have been used once.

I picked up a near new shape Spiker about a year ago to set aside my sgl21 as a collector peice. I have been contemplating selling/trading it lately, it's a cool rifle but it's far from my favorite to shoot.

I wouldn't hesitate at $1400 OTD. That's how badly I want one. Really the last AK that's a gotta have in my collection.

Get it, they're so fun to shoot, especially with a rice paddy hat on.

Or if you decide to pass, please pass along the info because I would definitely buy at that price.

For some perspective, that's cheaper than you can convert a MAK-90 into that config for (unless someone has some parts at less than market value).

There's a polytech spiker in my area for 2k obo, I'm selling my bike soon and thinking of offering 1700 for it. Chinese spiker prebans are so sexy.

OP I'd get it. They aren't getting cheaper.

For that price you better jump on it before he changes his mind or realizes he can sell it for more.

It was actually from a store. I had to sell a rifle to bring it home, but it's worth it. Very clean. I'll post some pics of the inside when I get a chance. It'll look great with the NHM and MAK 90!

Beautiful, of course I expect nothing less from Poly!

I still regret passing up on an excellent condition Norinco T56S Spiker a few years back for $1600, just didn't have the cash on me and I just got into the AK game so I didn't know too much then.

However, take that Egyptian sling off and get a real Chinese one! Funny my MAK-90 came with a Maadi sling as well, nowhere near as nice as the Chinese or Russian ones.
