I'd bump that up a tad for NIB, but then again price is subjective.

To me a NIB Sar-1 is more desirable than a NIB Mak but that's just me. I really like those Romanians. I'd pay up to $800 for it without second guessing it. But like Worm said price is very subjective.

And I'd take exception with the whole "NIB" thing. There's no way a firearm that hasn't been imported for over 14 years is truely factory new/new in box.
If a gun is transfered on a #4473 and thus privately owned, it is by definition used.
If it has been in a warehouse or dealer's back room, and never sold then it could be new-old stock (NOS), but still not NIB.

I know that's a bit nitpicky, but it always bugs me when someone tries selling a gun as NIB when it just isn't.

No way. Chinese bluing and fit/finish is much much nicer than any SAR-1, and I have both. SAR-1 feels and looks just like a neutered WASR.

With that being said I'd pay $700 for a NIB SAR-1 tops.

The SAR 1 was sold with laminate furniture ONLY in 2003, which was their last year of production. They are nice. But, I paid $329.00 brand new for mine. I wish I had kept it, but NOT because it was an exceptional rifle. More because it was my first AK. I'd take all of that into consideration before tossing down your cash.

Personally, as much as I like the AK... I wouldn't break a grand to buy ANY of them these days, and with that said, rifles from places like Romania would be near the bottom of the totem pole in terms of getting to even that figure.

The 2001 SAR 1 I have is a better built gun compared to my 2015 WASR. The finish is more of a bluing, or black oxide or whatever, than the dull grey WASR (if anyone has both, compare them side by side and you'll see what I mean) and the different parts are just machined better.

Browning, you took the words off my keyboard...i was about to say that the '03 SAR-1 with laminated furniture I had had several parts that sure appeared to be a dark dark blued with a good bit of shine. This was especially true of its topcover.
My '01 has more of a matt finish, but i do think it is nicer than on my later WASRs...generally speaking at least.

SAR-1 has magwell dimples and thus a non-USA modified magwell, which is nice. This is a + over the WASR.
Comparing with the Maadi, the only possible Pros to the SAR-1 are the side optic rail and the fact its receiver has both X & Y stamps.
Also while the SAR-1's barrel lacks threads, rather than having had them machined off, the barrel was simply never threaded. This is great, as it means a person can just thread their SAR's barrel 14x1 w/o any difficulty at all. Just install a detent pin & spring, and your in business.
You can weld the bayo lug back up too, but this takes a bit more doing and probably should be a gunsmithy job unless you're a welder at least.

Oh and the SAR-1 came with that great Romie green canvis sling, which is basically my favorite military AK sling.
Other accessories were the cleaning kit, 1 10 rd (also could be 5 instead) short mag, and 1 surplus 'preban' 30 round mag (sometimes not included).

SAR-2s and SAR-3s were also great guns.

Someone got one off gb late summer, $620. Box was disintegrating, but had everything in it. Not sure of year tho. I think it was a '00 or '01. I passed on it. Prob because they only accepted USPS MO.

Over the years, SAR-1's came with different sets of accessories. One version was with both a 10rd and a 40rd mag, for instance.

I was waiting for a 2003, myself. Those don't surface very often. I settled for a like new 2000.

Yep, the finishes are definitely more of a Romanian military finish on the SARs. I bought an AIMS 74 kit and the top cover matches my 2002 SAR 2 perfectly, as well as my SAR 1, whereas it does not really match the finish of my WASR. The one thing the WASR has going for it over the SAR though is the Romanian gas piston that isn’t welded on. The bayo lug I couldn’t care less about and as you mentioned, the threads can easily be added.

SAR-1's are sleepers in the AK market. You can still score them in the $600 range. I got one 2 years ago in a private sale for $600. Then this September I scored a 2003 one off Gunbroker for $590 from Tombstone Tactical, pictured below. It came with the original box, sling, oiler and a 30rd Chinese mag.

And what is the difference NOS and NIB because you say "it could be"?

I say that it is "the same thing but different." Clear as mud?

Yes. Either unused, mint or like new in box. Not new.

$700-800 if like new or excellent condition, just like the SAR 1. They're harder to find though so somebody really looking for one may easily pay more.

Semantics my friend.
When it comes to guns, i consider them brand new no matter how many owners If they have never been fired and still have the box they came in and so on.

Then that is definitely wrong on your part. No firearm is "brand new" unless it is at the original FFL from the factory it came from.

Example: Bob buys a Glock from Buds and hasn't fired or touched it in 2 years. It still is not brand new because he is the original owner.

I think the term you are looking for is "LNIB".

For all the talk of the "rough" finish of Romy guns, I have never had any rust issues or issues with finish bubbling off. Can't say the same about some Chinese and Arsenal guns, respectively. They may not win beauty contests, but SAR's are rugged and tough.
