Up for grabs is my Uber rare Preban Norinco 86s bullpup chambered in 7.62x39. Less then 1200 were imported before the assault weapons ban of 1994.

Mine is a complete package in pristine condition and complete numbers matching. This gun has been fired but shows very little sign. Asking $SOLD cash money ZERO TRADE INTEREST...so please don’t ask at all sorry.

Will do transfer at WCA issaquah or Fall City firearms. Shipping will be available to your FFL on your expense. If I’m missing anything please ask!

Thanks for looking

I have some past experience with these and shot one extensively.

Except for the pistol grip, these are all metal. This is not a conversion. Most of the parts will interchange with other 7.62x39 Norincos of the same era - the bolt carrier, bolt and piston are modified AK parts - the charging handle is a pin/bolt that goes into a hole in the piston rod. Some of the charging handles are curved like a trigger, but most are straight.

The trigger is not gross, but not as good as a typical Norinco of the era - it is a stiff wire or rod linkage (wire about the thickness of a coat hanger). The safety is up front and controls the front trigger, not the rear. There is no dust cover safety like a conventional AK.

There is no place to install an optic on the carrying handle, although I have seen one 86S where someone tried. If you are really wanting to shoot this with an optic, you could have someone make a replacement carrying handle/gas tube with a rail on it - please don't modify the stock one and ruin the value of the gun.

Yes, these are rare - I have seen them from time to time and shot a number of them. I have heard imported numbers from 500 to 2000 but have not seen a serial # above 1000 that I recall - I seem to recall a serial # above 500 though (I need to check my records). They used to go for about $500 in the 80s before the gun ban. Seen them for sale above in the $3-4K range.

The quality is about on par with other Norincos of the era - pretty good. Not like the barely finished guns Norinco pushed in the last year/months just before the ban. The blueing is usually a dark blue, and can rust if not properly taken care of like any other blued firearm.

The rifle can be broken apart most of the way, but there are some tricks to take it all the way down to where the receiver is separate from the front sheet metal fore-end. Do so would not be necessary to field strip it, only if something broke (never seen anything break on these - I have seen the safety wear out on one), like the safety or the trigger linkage - and probably only then from extreme abuse or wear. Generally stripping it down that far is not recommended or needed.

Field stripping is easy, but a little different than a conventional AK. Remove the dust/action cover and recoil spring/et. al., start to remove the bolt carrier to the rear almost all the way back, until the charging handle lines up with a enlarged area in the slot in the gas tube, turn the carrier sideways and remove the charging handle and then the bolt carrier/piston can be removed completely. Just the one extra step v. a conventional AK.

I really like these bullpups. They are lighter and handier than a conventional AK and balance well. You do smell the gas from them though - not a bunch of gas from them, but you can smell it. They are cold in the winter and hot in the summer (if you leave them laying in the sun).

GLWS.

Also, I forgot, the vertical foregrip is a copy of the Steyr Aug grip, is a very solid latch and is the other piece of plastic on the gun.

The pistol grip can be replaced with an aftermarket grip as it is a standard AK grip. It is a bit tricky to reinstall though as the internal nut is not easily accessed.

Other than that - using a drum with these is totally awkward as it makes accessing the trigger almost impossible - BTDT. 20 round mags are recommended instead of higher cap mags as 30+ round mag insertion interferes with the pistol grip and makes mag changes awkward.
