Those Kalashnikov anniversary rifles at K-VAR a few years back were cheaper I think...

Regardless of this particular gb auction, The SGL 31 and SLR 104 have gone up a ton in price since I bought mine last year. Good thing ammo is still available.

The seller’s legit. I’ve bought brakes from Chris before, nice guy, good to work with. Given the bidders histories, had to say they’re not legit either. It’ll be interesting to see if this is relisted in a few weeks.

Bullshit. Total bullshit. This is funny because there is always a random auction that, for no legitimate reason, goes for an absurd value. People will now list their real-deal, 100%-factory folders after seeing this and they will struggle to reach $3K, which will prove that this auction is complete and utter bullshit.

I 100% can tell you, its shill bidding. Ive seen this rifle from the same seller on GB with a buy it now of $2999. The auction has closed many times without a single bid on it. I suspect the seller is getting desperate and trying to lure an uninformed buyer to throw in a bid at a ridiculous price.

Blatantly false advertising. He lists it as an SGL and describes it as an SGL. Does Gunbroker take action for false advertising?

People keep calling this a Saiga and saying it's not a SGL. I must be missing something because it sure as hell looks like a SGL to me.

Fkn ridiculous if the bidding is real. Looking at the past purchases of both bidders, they have no problem dropping serious cash on rare rifles.

Meh. It’s their money not mine...

It is an SGL. You can clearly see the FIME markings on receiver.

He used to install pistol grip reinforcements on these, as well as refinish them in Russian milspec black paint (he did mine). The seller is 100% legit, I personally have had him work on my rifles.

If you have the tools, time, and know-how. Some people have a lot of money. Dropping a couple thousand to save them a couple hours is a worthwhile trade for some people. Welcome to America.

Youíre right, I missed the Fime marking and went off of what others said. Itís a little difficult to see the Fime marking on a cell phone.

It's a scam. I checked it this am and it was listed as flagged and removed. It's back this evening as I was chekcing AK's in my area. I emailed them from two different email addresses and have received no response.

fake, shill bidding, guaranteed.......see one about once a month on gb. I cant believe anyone would pay that price.....just wait until someone rolls the dice to get some imported ak-12/15 from Armenia in a few years, then things might get interesting but unfortunately very hypothetical at this point and premature, plus prices may be absurd to justify the risk......we can always dream.

Chris may be selling a rifle but I'd bet a left testicle he ain't in on a shill. Chris is a stand up guy imo. I have a 105 clone he built for me so I want this rifle to sell high.

So is the seller (Chris Butler) implying that this was an SGL31(-68) where he installed the reinforcement plate, folding trunnion, repainted it, and added the Kreb's peep sight? Would a lightly used version just like this done by Troy at InRange sell for $4500? I'd consider them pretty equal in workmanship. Maybe I should list mine with a high reserve to find out! Geez...

You tried to find an AK-100 rear trunnion and stock lately? They’ve all gone poof! Plus you’re overestimating the availability of Saiga -74 sporters. They’re all creeping up in value.

But yeah. The number of people doing the sidefolder conversion and the availability of sidefolding parts is seriously dwindling. Thought about persuing it for my IZ-132, but you’re looking at at least $250-300 for just the rear stock set and trunnion IF you can find one!
