    I've been thinking alot lately whether or not should i sell this AK?
    I've spent almost $1300-1400 approximately and shot about 1100 rounds through it.
    Reason why, maybe i'm an AR guy. The BRD infected me so bad.
    IF i sell it, most probably i'd get a PWS Diablo upper. And mate it up with a Noveske Gen2 lower.

    Modded Parts:
    Tapco Intrafuse Handguard (Lower)
    Tapco AK Saw Style Grip
    Tapco G2 Single Stage Trigger
    Krebs Hammer and Trigger Pins Retainer
    Tromix Extended Bolt On Charging Handle
    Spike's Tactical Dynacomp Muzzle Brake
    AK47 Recoil Buffer
    CAA Extended Mag Release
    VLTOR Mil-Spec Collapsible Stock Adapter
    Magpul Angled Fore Grip 2
    Magpul CTR Carbine Stock
    Magpul Enhanced Rubber 0.70" Butt-Pad
    Magpul 0.50" Cheek Riser
    UTG 5th Gen Quick Detachable Double Rail AK Side Mount
    Bushnell Trophy TRS-25 Red Dot Sight

    Any suggestions? Should or shouldn't? And how much do you think i should sell this baby for? I was thinking $1000-1100.

    I am looking to get one Arsenal by mid Nov. I have a RRA that I an pretty happy with and I do not see a need to by another 5.56

    I would keep it and save for a new AR.

    I had a similar dilemma. A lot of gun-buy capital tied up in a CHICOM AK. Keep or sell? Sold it.

    I have been thinking about selling mine to fund another ar build but it was my first restoration project that looks killer so I'm torn as well

    I ran across something that stated Arsenal are not doing AKs anymore. I looked for the sgl21 and found not many on gunbroker and the ones i found were pretty pricey. Money times are hard in my neck of the woods. I have thought about selling mine and getting the Springfield EMP in 9mm for a carry gun. Problem is ive always wanted a quality AK and i cannot bring myself to sell it. Even if it becomes a safe queen, i know im gonna enjoy it for years to come, and in my case, the longer i hold onto it, the less i wanna sell it. My advice, remember why u bought it and do what you can to keep it in your "arsenal". ;)

    Don't sell that! Keep it you will regret it. that's a top notch AK if they ever ban them it would be worth a fortune. Plus its a sexy rifle. ;) you can have a sexy ar and a sexy ak keep it!

    I'll pile on with the "keep it" crew. Bought mine in '97 and will always have nearby.

    Oh yes, this helps just fine, but I think that you have more in the bling than you do in the actual weapon. After looking at yours, I went hunting and found what I wanted for mine for under $200.00.

    Dude, keep what you have. :D
