    Default SAR2 Parts Kit value

    I'm still looking at options for a AK74 build. One thought is using a SAR2 as a donor rifle. If I did and used only the reciever, what would the remaining parts be worth? I'm thinking $125 maybe? Any thoughts?

    I'm not trying to be a smart ass, but, what would be the point?

    Why not just put a decent FCG in the SAR2?
    You could always hang some different furniture on it, if you wanted to.

    I found one on a for sale board for $325 shipped. That would probably be the max I would go for a donor rifle. If the leftover parts could be sold for $125, then I would only have $200 in the reciever. Not cheap, but not bad. I don't have the spare money at the moment, but if I decided to go this way I would at least know what to look for. I keep wondering if I would be better off waiting on Arsenals stamped AK74s, or building one now while we still can...

    The SAR2 has a funky FSB and a non threaded barrel. Not to mention the common problems of canted sites and poor finish. I have a like new Bulgy AK74 kit itching to get built.

    I would like to get one built similar to this

    Get the $10 front-end cuz those trunnions are shot.

    I've built them on the ace bents--Worked good.

    And the $100 deals are new-- the two I've got have undamaged trunnions.

    It if was not for already owning this kit, I would pick up one of the $99 front ends. My kit was purchased 6 months ago and have the receiver pieces still attached to the trunion so I should have no problems there.

    I'm really temped to get the Global Trades reciever but I fear it will cause problems with the side folding stockset. Either with the rear trunnion or the lasp that installs toward the front of the receiver. The SAR2 donor rifles seems to be the way with the least compromises but also the most costly.
