Default Market for Waffen Werk Receiver AK74s?

Are people out there willing to buy these? I saw one on armslist for $1000 and wondered what the general consensus on these was since I feel like I wouldnt buy one without test firing it first. Would any of you buy one and if you did at what price?

About $600 tops, but only of it's made with earlier nodak spud receiver. Those are excellent rifles. One's that were made with waffen receivers are trash.

I have one with WW receiver and it has been flawless in operation. Just under 1000 rounds now. I bought it during the Great Panic of 2013 for $850 from Atlantic. I think today its worth $550 to $600 shipped.

I have one on a NDS receiver. Like a $600 rifle.

I did my research and would rather have an AK74 with a chf chromelined barrel. I heard the chambers are tight on some US 74 barrels. If built well it's probably fine but the appeal for me is that the parts are former combloc.

Whatever a 74 parts kit is going for these days is what it’s worth. Demill it sell the barrel buy a Childers receiver and a barrel from Kvar if they still have them then build it.
