I need help on pricing a used AK.

The son of a former coworker of mine has a Zastava o-pap that he wants to sell. He says he has only put 100 rounds through it. I have only seen pics of the rifle and cosmetically it seems to be in good shape.
From what I have seen online they were originaly selling for $550 ish. He evidently paid alot more for it after they stoped importing them.

He was trying to get $600 for it and I told him good luck, and if he realy wanted to sell it I would give him $450.
One week later he say he'd sell it to me for the price I offered

My question is, Does $450 seem like a fair price, or should I have gone lower? I didn't want to low ball him, But I sure as heck wasn't going to pay $600 for a used $550 rifle.

I know nothing about the AK platform, Is this a decent rifle?

Does it take 30rd mags?

If so, $450 is a decent price.

If it only uses the 10rd mag, I would pass on it.

Well, being that you offered $450.00 for it, isn't it kinda late to ask the GT Brain Trust for advice? Honor your offer.

Wren, I plan on buying it. I guess I just wanted to know if it is worth the $450 I'm paying for it?

And Glockdude, yes on the 30 round mags.

Thanks for the replies guys.

New o-paps were $800 or so at Atlantic a few weeks ago. $450 is a steal.

$450 is a great price IMO- regardless, for what they will be bringing in 5-10 years you'll be glad you got it for that price.

They're going for $600-700 on Armslist.
$450 is wholesale.

This past month, the OPAPs and Arsenals have been showing up again. The OPAPs are in the $565 to $580 range, but are selling pretty quick due to them being out for a while. It will be a few more months before they are back in the low 5's. With that said, $450 is a very good deal. If you haven't seen it yet to check it out, you can also look to see if the sights are canted, etc. I would honor the $450 if there is nothing wrong with it. It is sorta a base assumption that there is nothing wrong with the rifle. In fact, any round count in that range is just helping you break it in, and has absolutely nothing to do with the value.

BTW, just being able to put your hands on it before you buy it is worth a little more to me. There is always that bit of uncertainty when you order online and have to take whatever is sent. I have had overall good luck, though.
