View Full Version : Input on Value?

December 06, 2015, 20:58

I took this Maadi/OOW AKM in trade a number of months back and I need to make room in the safe. Apparently all original Maadi parts? The PG is the weird blue one and I bought and Egyptian sling for it. It's in good condition, bore is shiny and rifling is excellent. Here's what the original owner said:

That particular barrel had the muzzle turned down during the "ban era" to qualify for sales and importation. I had a very skilled gunsmith sleeve the muzzle, recrown and rethread the barrel. It was done so well you really cannot tell. The muzzle device threads on and off properly, and the detent locks properly into the front sight tower.

I want to sell this, but I'm a bit stumped on price. Pictures are as follows:

Couple of minor dings in the wood

What does the peanut gallery say? :-)

I went on goinbroker to get an idea and saw your rifle on there already. Good call on listing it with no reserve. Let the market decide the value. Its a better option than listing it with a fixed price and having it sit there for months. Hope it fetches a good price :whiskey:

Thanks mate, I was debating listing it here, hence the price inquiry, but I figured I'd just play odds on the open market. Usually works for me (touch wood)

That was never imported .. Its a parts gun ... OOW is a USA lower as you know

So that line about import is bull ...

Yes they import pure Maadi pre and post 1989 ..

But this ?

Really a lot of question hers ... Oringal barrel yes or no ? Who built it ?

And no it would not be org parts as it would most likly have at least some 922r parts normal trigger , piston , muzzle break etc or the mags are the common one when the parts are non USA

With out know that it is hard to say price .. Is there a bayo lug on there ?

The trunion looks scrubed to me ..

It is a mut gun def .. Lot of stuff need to know to say pricing .. If org barrel and a good builder who made it and good min 922r parts then it will get a nice price .. If not a org barrel well...
