    Default WTK Russian AK Barrel & Bolt value

    I have a kit that's several different countries put together to make this kit.

    I am thinking of selling the barrel with matching bolt, it has the Triangle with the arrow pointing up, I know that's a Russian plant. I have the matching bolt but verything else looks like it came from a Romy kit.

    So I going to sell the barrel with matching bolt and keep the rest of stuff as spare parts.

    The barrel is a 1975 still in the trunion but no receiver stub, it's got finish wear and you can tell the barrel has been shot but it's clean no rust or gouges. It's a 16" with the bayonet lug, standard stuff on barrel, slant break, front and rear sight, gas block and lower hand guard retainer.

    I was thinking of putting it on Gunbroker with an opening bid of $250 and having my son take some pictures with his digital camera as I don't have one.

    So what do you guys think, is it worth listing it that way?

    Yeah, I'd say your opening price is close, but the way things are today it may bring alot more. Are you sure it's Russian, Romanians have the arrow inside of a triangle also.

    555th, I'll take your word on the Romy's can also have that mark. I have bought 15 or so Romy kits none have that mark, 10 of them are G kits and the others older.

    I bought this kit as a Russian kit but clearly the back half belongs to a G kit because it's a new buttstock with the black stripe and the cover is also new, this stuff didn't match the rest of this kit.

    You have been doing this a lot longer than me, but you are saying the Romanians put the Russian plant mark or their trunions? This mark is in front of the serial number which is FL 1723.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    The Russian arrow will be fletched, the Romanian arrow has a bare shaft.

    Have a look at the marks at AK-47 Manufacturers Markings

    Thanks for the link, now I don't know what it is, it's none of those.

    The arrow head is like an inverted V at the top, not filled in like all of them on the link page.

    If my son can take a good picture of it, I will post it with my ad and let the buyer decide what it is.

    Have your son take a pic and I'm sure we can tell you what you have.

    I may be interested in it if you want to sell outright.

    If so, shoot me a PM.

    If it looks like this, it's Romanian:
