But you have to realize that is an ORIGINAL Russian AK, one of VERY few in the US. There are many clones, but that is the real deal.

It is also the only ORIGINAL Ak-47 (milled Russian or otherwise) transferable military AK I have seen in my short (8 years) time of collecting military hardware. There are many CONVERSIONS, which are what you see selling for $12,000-$20,000.
