THE IMAGE ABOVE IS A PAID ADVERTISEMENT
Have they all dried up?
I wasn't following them to much between graduation and finding a job,
and now that I have some extra money/toys, I am looking to get one.
Have they dissapeared, or just shot up in price a good deal?

Which kits are you looking for? M85s and M92s are available, check out Atlantic, Apex, Sportsmans Guide, etc. The rest haven't been brought in for a while, so it's gunbroker and EE for those...

Neither the M85 or the 92, just the full size.
Fixed stock or UF doesn't really matter, have just always
liked the looks of the full sized AK's, was hoping to get
a parts kit and put together one with the battlefield
worn look.

Kits will show up in the Equipment Exchange from time to time...but you had best have $$$ in hand because the usually go pretty quickly.

Your best bet, IMHO, is to pick up a completed Yugo rifle which also turn up in the EE regularly. Most are Century-built rifles but are actually pretty damn good quality. You can then give it the "Battlefield Pick-Up" look yourself.

Just my $0.02...

That's what I was afraid of. Well, looks like I'll be trading a pistol + cash if I can find someone interested

You might want to consider getting a high-cap Yugo PAP, for the cost of a parts kit, plus assembly, you can get a PAP instead.

What kind of pistol?

A 9mm might expand to .45, but a .45 will never shrink to 9mm.

Sad to say the days of the all matching excellent condition kits for $99 are long over. You are lucky to find an original kit for less than $500, but they are out there.

Should I sell an excellent condition fixed stock M70 kit with complete original barrel I've been saving for many years?

If you are inclined to sell, now is a good time. As previously stated, the Yugo M70 kits have really dried up. Premium kits are getting good money these days.

+1 to this.
Plus, it seems like the fixed stock kits tend to be a tad more sought after.
Any carving on the wood?

I have a milled kit I am thinking of getting a fixed stock stub for to build it up as a fixed stock rather than an underfolder, actually.

I have about 80 kits, most are matching but they are front ends only. If you are interested in one, IM me.

ETA, these are stamped AB2 kits.

Lots of people have ask about the kits I have so here are some pics. We sorted through them all, punched the bores and was very happy with what we found. These pics are indicative of the kits and show everything they include. No rear end, not trigger guard (but there are plenty out there and if you need the pistol grip mount Mat has them, he also does rear trunnions.) Here is Matt's page http://mygunsnorthwest.com/index.html The kits DO include the grip screw as well.

Nice, but he needs to fix some of the images.
