Default Price check on Polish AK

I'm looking at an Atlantic Arms Classic Wood Polish AK. Lists on Atlantic site at $960 but out of stock.

The one for sale comes with 10 1st Gen MagPuls and four steel Korean mags.

Primary Arms ACSS 7.62x39 with mount. Optic is 3x fixed.

Condition of everything is claimed excellent, but I have not seen the rifle in person. FTF is possible, 170 miles one way.

Asking price for the package is $950 plus shipping. No FFL transfer charge on my end because he's an old friend.

Opinions?

Though they aren't available right now, Atlantic made it seem like they were making more. [At least more CG1's]
Just giving you options.

Cheers

Thanks for the responses. Bvrian, according to the seller, it has the hammer forged chrome lined Polish barrel which I assume is the original.

Seems good. The optic and mount alone cost $350+... Seems like a deal to me.

The mags are worthless. The PA is good $260 new, mount depending on what it is (if it's an RS mount a big plus) is good. So if it's in good shape it's an all around good deal for the price. Might be worth the time to drive that and do a FTF. If it's a WBP Classic from Atlantic it has the RB Radom barrel and worth that easy.

I bought one from Atlantic a couple of years ago and it's a real beauty. Shoots and looks great. I paid $850 without the accessories, just one magazine.

Just not a Magpul fan don't care for plastic. The Korean mags are junk. You want European steel mags. If the rifle is in good condition it's a steal at that price with the optic.

The best deals are on the USED market absolutely......
I would tell EVERYONE to stop buying from retailers til they bring prices back down.

EDIT: However, I'm not sure you are looking at a WBP.....it looks like a off-shoot builder did these.
I think these rifles were $600 or $700. Make sure it's a WBP , otherwise it's probably this one.

If it's the Atlantic Arms MFG Model AA POL47 I would jump on it big time. Picked one up Sep 2015 and it a beauty! Polish 1966 kit with hard wood stock and the receiver is produced by McKay Enterprises on Nodak Spud AK receiver tooling. I later ordered the OEM Radom CHF barrel to make it complete.

Ah ... the one I have is not polished, it's kind of a silver matte finish. I don't know what the finish is, but I'd like to know.
