Default Advice on switching platforms

Ok, so I know it's a really bad time to get into the AR/.223 market, but I've been pondering an idea for awhile I'd like to pitch and get local members advice (and also gauge your interest).

I really want an AR. I have an AK. My AK was an impulse buy at the time. I bought it a few years ago. I was actually looking at AR lowers just as the proverbial s%%t-hit-the-fan back in December. Bad timing on my part.

Now, I'm not trying to say I don't like my AK or the AK platform. In fact, quite the opposite, I love it.... I'm not trying to start a debate on AR vs. AK. Also, please put aside all the legal issues surrounding the AR, AK, the "AWB", etc. This is not the place for those discussions.

I like both platforms, but the main reason I want an AR is simple ergonomics and .223 is smaller, meaning it weights less and you can carry more of it. I also like the magazines much more than the AK as well, even with the bullet button. I also would like to share ammunition with my father who owns a Mini-14.

All that said, I'd like to keep my AK and buy an AR, but simple economics and the supply/demand issues we face right now won't let me have both.

So, my idea is this. Is anyone out there willing to trade an AR+mags+ammo (and maybe some "accessories") for an AK+mags+ammo+"accessories".

I'd rather not sell outright. I'm looking to trade one platform for another.
Again, before I commit to this idea, I'm looking for advice and gauging local interest here on CalGuns, as opposed to consignment at a local gun shop or something of that nature.

Thanks.

why not post it as a trade in the marketplace? I'm sure you'll get some good hits
