    Default Tropical sidecap for opinions

    Hi,
    I'm in discussions with a seller for this AK (or maybe just tropical) sidecap which appears to be in mint condirtion and i'm tempted to snap it up.

    Firstly, is it the real deal and secondly, is it worth the 450 euro they're asking? I have no experience in these but am finding myself attracted to AK collecting more and more.

    Thanks in advance for any opinions.

    My personal opinion, i like the eagle design and there were issued caps with red lining.

    A fine original Clemens Wagner, probably one of the unissued examples from the "Beehive" hoard. It has the first signs of zinc pest on the grommets, but that is typical for these and is not a problem as such and can be treated I think before it gets any worse.

    The price seems a bit high IMHO.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Yes, these are the ones. I hope to receive more photos tonight and will post them of course but even if genuine, 450 euros sounds very expensive to me!

    I think this is one from the bundle listed on the WAF e-stand. Looks original to me and I dont think the price is too bad.
