The value is the important part. I have a AR in 7.62 that is worth at least twice what my AK is. If for some reason I had to to use one it sure wouldn't be the AR. Check the options and what they are going for. You may be able to get some cash on top of it. You had better make sure you shoot that gun first. You may hate it. I have a PT1911 and several other 1911s. My Glock 17 and Sig 9 have a totally different feel.
