Default Bought another SAR-1

Its not my fault , it had Tapco shit on it and I had to save it. $550 + the ride . This one may get Russian polymer stuff on it . I need a gas tube for it(got one), they put a cheapo railed gas tube on it . That junk comes off soon as it gets home. $610 to my door isnt bad , as it looks pretty decent with a supposed low round count.Pics coming

Good deal on an underrated rifle. I have a couple Sar’s and wouldn’t hesitate to buy another at the right price. I love the Romanians.....

I was watching that same one on Gunbroker. I ended up winning an auction for a nib 107ur for 910 so I didn't bid on that Sar. You're right. She needs to be rescued from that Tapco crap.

I knew a bunch of you SOB's would be watching the ole girl....you guys know whats good. Most people ignore these as they dont know whats up with them. Either plum or black for this rifle, not sure yet.Barrel gets threaded asap , of course.

Almost bought one last year that was painted silver and black.

But, had to let it go.

I think SARs (both 1 & 2) are the most underrated AKs that are still attainable at reasonable prices. I’ve picked up three over the last 6 months (couple of 2s, one which I have an AoA kit to convert to an AIMS74 clone and one SAR1). I wouldn’t mind getting at least a couple more. I think 5-10 years from now, maybe sooner, we’re going to look back and realize these were a great deal on getting a chrome-lined, CHF barrel in a combloc receiver, all from a former combloc factory. Finish isn’t pretty but it’s Romanian milspec (to my understanding) and that’s easy to redo. On the SAR1, all you have to do is thread the muzzle and slap on a slant brake and add some surplus furniture. SAR2s take a little more work to make them pseudo-correct but, still, it’s a factory 5.45 AK for well under a grand.

same here. I picked one up for $650 recently and I LOVE it. Like it better than my WASR. fits everything and feels rock solid. Looking at snagging another one for a reasonable price

Funny just seeing this thread. Well I sold one a while back and kinda regretted it as it was my only Romanian delegate in the safe. Been lurking around and wondering if I should just get a wasr or try to get back into a SAR. Well picked up one a few minutes ago on GB. Maybe some of you were bidding as well. It comes with wire folder that I have zero interest in so I can resell that for >$100. And the muzzle has been threaded already. So all said and done probably out $600. I have a sweet set of worn Russian Red AKM furniture waiting.

GAHHHHH I SAW THAT ONE TOOO.....and I was like....how much do I value my life....seeing I got in a Swiss K11 yesterday..a RATMIL coming Thursday, and a Yugo K98/48 that I bought last night.

I think the old lady is starting to get wise.

We need like a secret GB network....

I like the finish on my ~$670 SAR-1 more than on my $850 arsenal SLR 107r. Not sure if that’s more of a testament to the sar or more of a detriment to the SLR. At least the SAR finish resembles a military rifle, whereas the SLR finish seems to resemble a BBQ pit.

My love for the SAR-1 isn't exactly hidden or even lowkey.
One nice thing about the finish, since it already comes a bit scuffed up when NIB, as you use it and fire it, it doesn't ever really start to look bad/worse lol.

The SAR-1 is undervalued today, but the SAR-2 (and its Romak-II, WUM-2, CUR-2 cousins) is the one that's really underappreciated.
Starting off, we already have very few true, factory built 5.45x39 guns on the import market. The SAR-2 is in an elite club, with just the SLR105, SLR104, SGL31, and VEPR.

Then consider that far fewer SAR-2s were imported compared with SAR-1s.
And of those, many were trashed thanks to owners firing lots of cheap surplus 7n6 through them and then of course not properly cleaning.

So today, a good, solid SAR-2 is worth more than the current going price IMO.
Especially considering that the parts to convert one over into an authentic AIMS74/PA-86 are pretty cheap and very easy to find. Before AofA brought those kits over, this was very much not the case.

I bought both my -1 and -2 NIB back during their import cycle, and I've never regretted either one.

Yeah that was a nice one.....like I said...regretted it. I just have a queezy feeling about the AK market and decided to jump on one if it was a fair deal.

yeah, I had a face to face deal in town for one so I grabbed that one instead, but your red furniture was sexy.

and I do too. It's why I'm trying to focus on finding combloc AKs to pick up if I can (a Mak 90, another Sar-1, maybe an N-pap if I can find one, just not interested in a SLR107r, as I wasn't impressed).... been sitting on the verge of buying an RH10 with the woof furniture for $650 (which isn't HORRIBLE). I'm not really hopeful for the market. Although , I MAY splurge (especialy if I've had vodka or bourbon) and buy the Circle 11 builds that Atlantic is putting out in the next 1-2 months... those Circle 11 kits are drying up

sadly the only SAR-1 in town is being sold on Armslist for $1200 (comes with 7 rusty mags!!!)

Agreed, i wasn't super impressed with the SLR107R. I didn't find it to be a 'bad' gun.
Just very average and in a world full of WASRS? meh.

that was actually why I sold mine. It was basically a WASR 10 and I bought my 2 WASRs for $535, while it was $875... couldn't justify the price increase as the trigger was awful and the fit and finish no better than your average romanian.. .. wasn't that it wasn't a good gun, I just didn't find it $875 + $30 shipping good.

I saw that one as well, it had a lever style folder on it. Looked pretty nice to me . The one i bought was pretty much a rescue case imo. The camo tape holding the pressure switch for the $30 laser made my cringe. Hopefully its no too nice so i can shoot this one more. I have been buying rifles lately that look unfired or close to it. What started as just shooting these,turned into a semi-investment collector thing.

Good for you you brother! I rescued a Wasr 10/63 like that with the shit furniture on it. Sold all the rails and plastic, put some nice laminate and bakelite on it, and had cash left over for ammo...

The SAR 2 I bought had that exact same tapco muzzle device welded on very much the same. I had to cut it off with a grinding wheel and then smooth down the front sight base to find the pins again.

Much better! I saw that thing a few weeks ago on GB and was debating on bidding. Glad I didn't and a fellow member got it. Nice job making it look respectable. I'll give you $5 for the laser
