Question AK47 build price check

Hi guys,
I know you're not here to spoon feed me, but I have quick little question.

How much would it run me to buy or build and AK47 replica with metal and wood parts? Some good quality metal not some shit I can bend with my hands and preferably laminated wood.

I have a decent collection of RS ( RS...giggles) Russian/commie guns and I felt like adding the most important piece of Commie garbage.

Yes I know I'm not AVed and I won't be for another 7 something months. But I wanna know what would the ballpark price looks like so I can decide wether I should save up for an AEG or buy a DEWAT.

Thanks,
Alex

The AK 47 is NOT garbage. It will swim through a flood, walk through a sandstorm and will let you drive a Hummer over it and still shoot you in the head. That said, iirc the CAS AK-47 metal + wood was about $4XX.

Is the quality there or am I better off saving and buying the plastic version and then replacing the plastic parts with after market top notch wood and metal parts?

oh and:

Yeh, but I don't think most people have that type of money to throw around, especially since you're turning 18 and have university in mind.

The CYMA line seems to have decent ak's for 4-6 hundred -/+ quality/upgrades of course.

Since he'll be age verified soon, he'll be better off buying off the classifieds or a retailer here.

CAS guns have clear/smoked PLASTIC receivers.

Sorry, that was the only price I knew for an AK that had real wood. I assume he knows that CAS has tinted receivers and cost-cut on externals

Are you actually going to play with it or is it just a showpiece? It sounds like you're a collector and if so you can get the crappiest POS gun and just replace the furniture and stuff to make it look good heck you could probably just take a broken gun off someones hands if it's just going to be a showpiece.

If you're thinking of gaming it though, probably in the ballpark of $500-600 for a good quality one.

Just checked the review for the CAS G&G AK and it looks like nice piece of kit at a decent price. How much does a quality metal body run for? This mount sound silly but can I mount a bayonet on it? or does it require a different outer barrel and front sight?

edit.

I do plan on fielding this stick when the time comes. I'd like it to be pretty robust so I can abuse it like my RS(omg..each time it makes me giggle).

You mean your daddy's RS?

But seriously, wait and get something from the classifieds.

Metal AK bodies seem to go in the ballpark of $90-120 last time I checked.

Also how is it that you have an AK? I thought those were prohibited (Unless it's a civilian version or something).

Don't have an AK nor mentioned I had one. Thats why I made this thread, because I can't have a real one. I do have a VZ-58 tho. ahum, I have my daddy's vz-58.

How common are laminate stock sets for G&G Ak's?

If you're looking to build a good quality AK as you say, you're looking at about 700-ish for all the parts, including a quality steel receiver and laminate wood parts.

If you're looking for the ultimate AK, then I'd say to hold off and throw the extra $100-150 on top of that and get a Real Sword Type 56 instead. Doesn't get much more genuine than real-steel externals. That's as close to a real AK as a civvie is ever likely to get their hands on in Canada.
