With the Executive Order that our dearest president has made regarding the importation of and sale of Russian Kalashnikov weapons, anybody planning on turning a profit? Or are you holding onto your 308s for dear life? =P

I'll sell mine if the price is right. Now the vepr12 is at its forever home, the 308 has a domestic equivalent in the ar10 theres no real us made shotgun that comes close to a saiga12 or vepr12.

I am keeping mine, but my mind was made years ago when I got it, not because of what is going on now..

I'm very happy with my v12 & v308..  no way will i sell them.

I've only sold a couple, & ALWAYS regretted it later.  I've traded a few, as well, & generally miss the ones traded.  Better to collect & keep everything!  :D

I might sell my S.308-ver.21 if the price is right.

I've tried to sell it a few times, but couldn't get what I wanted and I'm not taking a loss on it.

It doesn't get shot much, especially since I got my M1A.

I was thinking of possibly selling mine a ways into the future to purchase a different 308, but considering the situation, I'll definitely be hanging onto mine now. I really wish I could afford an S12 but after the $200 markup I've seen since the EO, It's probably not happening for me =(

I plan to hold onto mine for as long as possible.  I don't get the sense that this ban is the same as the ban that ended Norinco and Poly-Tech imports in 1991.  IE: importation may resume sometime down the road when the political situation changes...  However, If used, converted EAA S-308's ever start selling for the cost of a new Springfield Armory SOCOM II, I will be strongly tempted.

I sold my Saiga after Sandy Hook and regretted later, for which this time I will not sell any of mine.

I'll take $3k+ for mine but it has had extensive work done outside of a regular conversion... would also sell all my accessories including AImpoint and POSP with it.  I don't see anyone putting up that kind of $$ unless people become crazy.  $3,000 can buy a very nice rifle, not sure why people would spend that on an AK unless they just have. to. have. it.

That's right.. none of us here own any guns..  we just like to talk about them, & pretend we do..  We are all terrified of real guns, & want our govt to protect us from the crazies who actually own them..    tinfoilhat.gif

Mine went down in a minor mud slide in my 4x4.
Been driving those back roads ever since hoping to find em,
Maybe some day I will get them back. Too bad it was only the semi autos this time, all my bolt actions that use the same ammo that I have "plenty" of are fine.

I don't think I could bring myself to sell an AK that is more accurate than some bolt action rifles I have owned.  Especially not now that I've got it about sorted.
