I saw a number of WASR-10's at the gun show in Hattiesburg, MS this weekend. Most of them looked a bit cheapo to my uneducated eye. They were $500+, mostly right at $600. They were selling well, as was ammo for them. A friend bought one; i bought an SKS. We went to a buddies property to try them out; the SKS felt much more "solid" and more suited to my clumsiness. Of course, the SKS had a more comfortable stock (in black nylon, of course).
