For $2100 cash, I will sell you my AR 7.62X39 complete rifle (NFA Lower, Red Dot type sight), all Wolf-type ammo I can find (3,000+), and all brass cased (500+) empties ready to load with new RCBS dies. Includes 6-quality 29 rd magazines and a VooDoo case. I pay the transfer fee at Lakes Trading in Forest Lake, MN.

Why - I have 5 other various AR's in multiple calibers to play with. The above is/was my go-to-rifle for when SHTF.

I don't know anyone, anymore, that are interested in NFA SBR's, since the explosion of pistols w/braces took the industry by storm in the last few years. The benefits of a pistol (the braces ARE good enough) far outweigh sbr's. (With a PTC- can carry loaded inside a vehicle, can carry concealed on your person (think backpack), can transport across state lines without advanced permission, can carry in states that have reciprocity with MN, don't have to go through the ATF paperwork and wait times to buy....or sell, and finally, in a worst case scenario- I'd much rather defend myself in court afternusing a title 1 firearm rather than an NFA item, but ymmv on that). My go to home defense setup is a 9" factory AAC 300blk pistol with Sig brace. Nimble, powerful within self defense distances, and NOT an NFA item. Fwiw.

NOT a Short Barreled Rifle SBR. Also NOT a NFA item as you think, but a name-brand of an AR-15 type Lower.

My mistake. Haven't heard of NFA being a brand, just an unconstitutional infringement. Sorry that i forced my rant upon you. Good luck with that sale.

Good to meet you. Now you know one. I love SBRs. Pistol braces are weak and floppy. Love a real stock on my SBRs. I too think it is an infringement but until it is overturned, I will wait.

I've got two from PSA and was able to put them together for in the $400 range each (watch for the sales). The only problem with Palmetto State is that they have a hard time keeping the kits and uppers in stock.

AK or SKS unless you want an absolute tack driver and money is no object.

That's kind of cool

What kind of accuracy have you got from your PSA IN 7.62x39?
