Yeah, I've seen a couple of used ones selling in that range here recently. I got mine back in February, having placed the order in late December. Including shipping, I paid $890 for mine. If I remember correctly, the actual shipping charge was around $40, so essentially the gun itself was $850 new.
And yes, I highly recommend them. Very solid guns. Short of taking a swim with it or submerging it in mud, this gun will take all the abuse a real AK would. You can't do that with any other airsoft gun, even a PTW.
