Yeah the thing is nice. He payed $400 for the gun, $400 for the scope, and nearly $1000 for the barrel and everything to make it 223. Pretty sad it didn't work and my $600 65 year old gun worked flawlessly lol

Show me a Sturmgewehr 44, and I'll sell my first born!
So apparently "a little more" means "more than double" where you come from. And I'll put a fresh-out-of-the-box K31 up against an accurized M1A any day of the week.

But you can get an m1a for a lot closer to 1,000. If you get really lucky you can get a barebones one for under a grand.

And you think paying over THREE TIMES as much is "just a little more"?!

Gee... I wanna be you when I grow up.

Where do you get 3 times from? You said he spent $1,800 on it. Where is that 3 times less?

$1,000+$400+$400= $1,800. Gee, I hope you take first grade math when you grow up

Even if you exclude the scope...$1,600-$1,800 divided by $1,400...is not 3

Hard to tell, as K31s like this don't become available very often. I was willing to pay $595. The way I see it, if this rifle were made today it would probably cost more than $1200. An M1 Garand or M1903 in this condition would also be well north of $1K (and they made 10 times as many of those than K31s).
