PolyTech AKS-762 – 7.62 – RED Bakelite Sidefolder 1of500 ULTRA RARE PreBan!
This is a no reserve penny auction for a PolyTech AKS-762 semi-automatic rifle in 7.62×39. Serial number- PS87-762-1822. Mfg. 1987. This AK-47 is in good condition and features a chrome bore, side-folding stock, and RARE all-red bakelite furniture. Comes with 2 magazines. This style of AKS was one of the last versions imported by Poly-Tech prior to the 1994 assault rifle ban and is much rarer than the Poly-Tech Legend or Norinco versions of AK rifles. It is estimated that less than 500 total of this model were ever imported into the US prior to the ban, which disallowed several features, one of them being the folding stock. It is reported that these rifles were imported in two groups; approximately 250 in each shipment. This rifle is marked near right rear side on the receiver, "Model AKS-762/Cal. 7.62x39mm/Poly-Tech, Bejing China". The underside of the receiver is correctly marked, "Imported By K.F.S. Atlanta/Made in China" (representing Keng's Firearms; the only Chinese Government authorized importer of this style of rifle). Made with threaded muzzle but without the bayonet lug like the milled "Legend" versions. Note: There is some minor tarnish on the barrel and dust cover and substantial rusting on and within the stock. There are also 6 screws that have been drilled into the left side of the receiver which we believe this was an attempt to mount an optics system.
