Certain parts are not commonly available and as such you might just as well name your price--whatever the market bears.

Doug at the now defunct, avtomatsinaction.com used to get parts in on a infrequent basis, he always had the cool stuff.

I bought my spare S12 Complete Bolt Assembly for $60.+S/H, IIRC, Bolt Carriers when available went for about a $80.00 and Safety Selectors were like $5.00.

Now though, supply & demand is much higher, K-Var charges about 2X-3X for those I listed above.

They charge a small fortune for parts, if they're even available... Which they're not, haven't been in forever and likely never will be.

 

I've often half joked that I'd sell my bolt assembly for $500.00 to those who managed to FUBAR their own.

No one has taken me up on it yet

At one time, there was a gray market where people were buying Corvettes new and parting them out. Looks like you are fishing to see if this is a viable option for Saigas. Good luck with this, if you can make a buck the factory may see the profit potential for spare parts and make them available in America.

My thoughts exactly. Not necessarily a bad idea, but I'd be careful how much I invested. Some parts would go alot faster than other parts.

Simple, just list the parts on the condition that they are available when all are sold.. Also odds are the receiver is about worthless without the trunnions, separating them may not be profitable.

Well It started when a local guy welded on my receiver and then ground on it trying to fill in the xxxxxxx box. Said it was going to be tig welded and I think he Mig welded it, caused some uneven areas, hit a rivet with the grinder then either tried to replace it or ground the head off the rest of the way and welded a head back on to the stump. So I have one gun to part out and I was thinking about trying to buy a few more to part out. If I can buy them used, already converted or semi converted there would be more stuff to sell.
