    Default WTK Value/price of Norinco 56s N.I.B.

    Well... My now ex wife bought me an Norinco 56s back in 1984, Being she knew I allways wanted an AK.
    Well It was so nice I never had the heart to take it out to shoot it. Of course I never had the time anyway.
    It was more of heartfelt gift and I did'nt want to shoot it. Years went by and out came those Mac 90's. So I got one of those and being it had no personal ties I used the crap out of it.

    Anyhoo, This 56s remained in the box with all of it's accessories. Like 3 mags wrapped in paper and sealed plastic bags, same with the Bayo, cleaning kit etc. etc..
    I never opened any of it. All contents were left alone. Once in a great while I would take the ak out and look at it. I allways wiped it back down with a little gun oil to get any finger prints off. This was my safe queen.

    Well..long story short I got sick and she divorced me.
    I need to eventually remove any and all remains of reminders. Sadly to say this is one.

    Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!
    I now look at this as more of an investment now. I mean it allways sat in an enviro. controlled room in a safe. Yes, in the box. (big safe)

    Thanks for reading this Long a**ed post

    I sold a similar Norinco (Fixed Stock) a short time ago, All of accessories, but NOT NIB- and I got $750.

    FTF sale....

    I believe that you could get a whole lot more....

    Hey, thanks for the help.
    I suppose I should check Gunbroker and see what's going on.

    Don't forget to search on completed items so you can see what actually sold. Otherwise you may not get a true picture of worth. I think you have to be logged in to get the completed items search option.

    So true! I get a kick out of some of these people that ask such an over inflated price for something.
    Thanks

    What I think is funnier yet is when people say "they're on GunBroker for this $$$", then you check and find them, but no one bids on them.

    Or they set the reserves so high that no one ever wins. They just keep relisting over and over again at the same inflated price assuming someone will come along and think it is a good deal or just does not look at what other auctions are going for.
