People are going to look for markings stamped on the rifle.
Let's take a recent purchase of mine as an example.
Regardless of what the salesman said, the rifle was
stamped with the Colt LOGO. Was marked by caliber.
throughout the rifle were stamps and markings
providing clues as to what it actually is.
Sooner or later, you'll get burned, if you
"take somebody's word for it".
It should be clearly stamped "Galil"
"IMI", or have other obvious Israeli markings,
which will verify it's value.
"CAI" is just the imprimatur of a large arms importer,
and Century Arms brings in a lot of AKMs.
At the heart of the matter, Israeli markings-2200-to-3200$+.
IF it's just a CAI AKM, you are holding a @ 750$ Bubba job.
