I saw this gun at a gunshow on Saturday. The guy had it sitting really close to him next to some really expensive guns and I asked him about it. He said that there were only around 500 of these imported and they were the best of the best bullpups. He let me pick it up and I was a bit impressed with the bullpup conversion. He had it priced at around $1700. Someone want to give me the scoop on it? Is it one of the best imported bullpup AK's? What would one really go for?

That sounds about right as far as price goes. It's the only imported bullpup I've ever heard of and as always there is probably some other obscure importer that brought them in also.

Yes it is "the best" as it was the only AK bullpup rifle imported. Price seems a little high as the last one I saw for sale at a online auction went for $1385 new in the box. They were imported with 3-20rd mags,Type 63 chest pouch,bayonet,cleaning kit/rod,sling,and manual.

There was a thread here not too long ago that I was reading that discussed some of the commercial conversion kits that could be bought. I read it, and then that weekend saw this one and thought the workmanship was superb. There are just so many people who try to blow smoke up your a**, I begin to wonder about some of the guns I see and their price tags. Thanks for all the info. Only 500? Wonder how much they went for when they came in.

The good ole' days....

I came very close to buying a real Dragunov back in 92' for $600 and thought it was too much.

I remember seeing a table of SVT 40's for $120 and thinking they look too long and weird.

I sold an M1 carbine for $125 bucks.

Enfields for $40 bucks, but they looked 100 years old or something.

I did get a few things back in the good ole' day, but I sold most of it off too.

Yup, the dumb ole' days for me.......

So, did you buy it? I'm thinking about getting one, myself.

Bullpup Norico AK

In case anyone's interested in one of these...

Shooters, a place in OH and near Wheeling WV, has one of these for sale on consignment.

I stopped in the other day, and got to take a look around.

It's a Norinco Bullpup AK. It was very clean. Looked to be in excellent condition.

He wants $1200. He also told me he's having a hard time giving it back to the seller / owner... Maybe room to work, here?

Good luck!

Thats the only ak bullpup that I have ever given a second look. I wish I could afford it. BTW, back in the 80s I bought a rock-ola m1 carbine for 125.00 sold it for 185.00 about a year later thinking I had really made a killing on the sale. Still kicking myself in the ass for that one!

They are great looking weapons, but I understand you've got to wear welders gloves to shoot it. They are known to get too hot to handle.
