You should probably give us a little more info. Is it a matching number kit? What accesories are included? What condition. Photos would help.

Remember guys this is a FIXED STOCK KIT, not an underfolder. I can't remember seeing a fixed stock polish kit in awhile, let alone what they sold for. I have more info but I just got home from work and need to be to work early so I will have to post the pics that were sent to me tomorrow.

I got one about 1 month ago F/S all matching # for $465.00 shipped with Bay & 2 polish mags

The info I received is that this is a matching kit, purchased as a hand picked kit. The seller believes he has a bayo and cleaning kit that was included in the kit. No mag pouch or mags, but has mags he would sell to me or include if the deal is right.
Here are the pics:
Bluejack-doesn't a fixed stock require a different rear trunnion than an underfolder?
notime-what do you mean by F/S and was yours an underfolder?

Seller says kit is all matching and was bought as a hand picked kit. He thinks he has a non matching bayo and maybe an oil bottle. No mags or mag pouch.

The fixed stock rear trunion kit has a standard two long rivet attachment to the receiver, whereas the underfolder has a much more complex rear trunion with 4 short and one long rivet attachment. The underfolder receiver also has a more extensive series of cutouts for the underfolder assembly to be attached, both on the sides and the bottom.
Bluejack hogged all the kits he could because he had the insight and funds to do so. I lost my share of kits to him, but he knew what the deal was worth and followed thru.
Congratulations Bluejack, my hat is off to you.:hatprop:

A bit of comparison, Apex has fixed stock, no barrel, milled Polish AK's for $290. A barrel is going to run around $100, so hitting $400 would be easy to do with a vendor's incomplete kit.
Add to that, milled kits typically sell for less than stamped kits due to the expense and extra work needed to build a milled AK and a complete stamped kit for $400 looks great!
