Hey all,
So I have a Remington 700 sps tactical 300 AAC blackout and my buddy had a pretty nice WASR AK he wants to trade me for it. I know what your thinking... "That AK is worth half of the Remington" but he has some work done to it an is throwing in 7 mags. Any advise? His AK looks like this for the most part

It could just be me, but I would hold onto the 700. I just seem to prefer the ability to accurately reach out to further distances though, so that could play a part.

I've also yet to shoot the AK platform since its not very common where I'm living due to laws, which also plays a good part in my feelings about them.

I wouldnt do it. That 700 is a way better built gun.. Maybe if he added ohhh 500 bucks with it.

I would do the trade if you are not including the optic on the 700. The 700 SPS tacticals can be found for $600 if you look. Try to get him to throw in $150 while you are at it and you will be well ahead.

My Remington shoots the 300 blk round and that is becoming super expensive and hard to find. That's the main reason I'm considering this

The 700 will always hold it's value. The AK might be worth more than the 700 today but as soon as a republican is elected president the AK will be worth $200. You are right about the 300 blackout ammo. I just checked ammoseek. 300 blackout is rare and expensive.

I dont recall any $200 Aks during the Bush years. People (myself included) thought SKS's would never be more than a $150 gun. I wish I had bought everyone I saw sitting in the barrrel at Roses and Kmart for 80 bucks

Just my 2 cents: I had a wasr 10/63. It was fun no doubt about it but it shot exactly the same even after I added all the tacti-cool stuff. It never did better that 2 inch groups at 100 (groups of 4-ish at 200, and all over the place any further). Maybe it was just that particular rifle but I wasn't really impressed.
I'm not at all familiar with the 300 blackout round but I am familiar with the rem 700. I have one in .270 and I can hit a chips ahoy cookie at 300 yds. One the legal side of things a 700 will most likely always be looked at as a hunting rifle where the AK is subject to banning at the simple stroke of a pen.

Don't do it. Though trading guns some people love. I did it only once. Made out as it was between family members. Ammo is coming more available so in due time you will find ammo. Just remember to load up before the commie's start there crap again.
