    I've been considering a SU-16 for a while.

    I might be able to pick up an older SU-16A with the old plastic front sight for $450 cash. It only has a few hundred rounds through it and other than being dirty it seems to be in really good shape.

    If I do get it, what are the easiest options for replacing the front sight? I presume I can order a new set from KelTec and install myself? Any aftermarket options better?

    Or should I just wait, save some cash and try to find a SU-16C?

    Option B. Buy new. No regrets.

    I've owned an SU16A for about 11 years and love it. Made a mod for the bi pod with AK47 spring making it flip open and more sturdy, 4 power scope that mounts solid. Shoots great and IMO, best type to own for me. The price $450. seems reasonable. I paid about $550 for mine new in box.
