Found an ak pistol, seller says it has rust on the dust cover but i'm not sure if its actually rust.
Opinions? Price value?
Any input is greatly appreciated ak1.jpg ak2.jpg

The top side picture makes it look as if there's pitting on the cover behind the sight. It doesn't look like there's any rust on the weapon in the photos, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't previously. It is clear that a harsh cleaner was used on the left side of that top cover. You can see the difference between the silvered and darkened areas. It is a PAP M85, I do believe. Considering the condition, I'd say around $600-650.

Do you believe any costly repairs could come along in the future? Also, is it worth buying or should I continue looking for one in better condition?

Maybe a refinish. It’s hard to tell. Get your hands on it and feel for any of the aforementioned pitting, if at all possible. If there is, then it will likely rust again because it is proof that it has been poorly stored previously. As for the second consideration, it could be a great buy depending on the price. It won’t cost you much to refinish it if the price is right at purchase and the wood is easy to clean up. It would also be wise to take a look on the inside to see what kind of wear and tear is there.
