The seller is honest and open about the status of that AK and he's open to counter offers which doesn't make it so bad.

Counter would likely have to be around $900 or more just for the parts value.

I am thinking because of inflation the worth of collectibles will tank again.

Why is there an inverse relationship between inflation and the value of collectibles? I would think just the opposite would be true.

People have less money to spend on collectibles, as cost of living goes up.

When you pay more for essential goods and services (inflation), you'll have less to spend on non essential goods and services. Nonessential goods and services can't maintain their prices if few people pay for them so they wind up having to lower their prices in order to attract more customers.

Which is more important to you, essential goods and services or nonessential goods and services?

During inflationary times, it's a buyer's market for non essential goods such as antique radios and other collectables.
