I just bought an SAR 2 for my collection (thanx for the info on yours tinman, but I found this one locally). Are these guns drying up or what? They used to be all over the shotgun news ( S.O.G., Wholesale Guns and Ammo, FAC, Aim Surplus ) for like $280.00 and now it seems like nobody has them and when you do find one the prices are creeping up. Did they have a limited importation or something? Anyway, Tapco had the best deal on mags, four 30 rounders (used) in the pouch for $16.99!! Even if you throw the pouch away you can't beat that price. I can't wait for my case of ammo to arrive so I can shoot this thing. I am very interested to see how the AK feels with this smaller round as opposed to the 762x39.
