Default Armslist gomer and his jacked-up,over-priced SKS !!

This thing just appeared on my local Armslist, and I thought it was funny. The guy couldn't possibly have provided any fewer details about it, and his photography skills could clearly use some serious help!! He just threw it on the living room floor among a bunch of loose change and other junk. He didn't even TRY for any kind of presentation, LOL!!
He seems to think he's got solid gold there, asking a ridiculous $550. It looks like a Yugo, w/ Tapco stock, and is missing the original 10-rd mag.
Unless you're wearing oven mitts, it can't be a comfortable shooter with all that bayonet exposed, was that stock altered somehow? He does say "best offer", I wonder if he'd take $175 .

Is the playstation controller part of the pistol grip?

If so, it could be a great deal.

Its one hell of a package deal,
  • Jacked up SKS
  • one smelly shoe
  • Used PlayStation controller (little greasy, sticky R2)
  • GTA game
  • spare change
  • random wires
  • Not included; sock with foot inside

Will trade for any Non Junk items

I'd jump on it................wearing a pair of cement shoes.
There are more SKS's like this on my local Armslist than any other type of listing.

I did sell my unmolested Yugo SKS for $500 on AL a couple years ago when they going for around $400.

When did PTR start importing bubba'ed SKS's? Looks like you'll get some free bed bugs with purchase.

It`s amazing what people do when mommy or daddy don`t like a scary black gun in the house. Before taking a closer look I was half expecting to see a link to the MP, even if there`s only one SKS in the recent stuff I`ve seen!

Any key words like "upgraded" or "folding stock", I'll just ignore the ad.

Around these parts idiots think bubba'd SKSs are worth thousands.

#1, that ad is so bad it could be interpreted by some as possibly being a joke..

My interpretation of it, as taken from my own experience, is that many of these just must be leftover from all the fudds in the late 80's and early 90's trying to make their SKS into an AK. They've got to be..

Back then, around these parts, it seems to me like every hillbilly had an SKS with either the plastic folding stock, or the dragunov style black plastic stock and of course, the cheap-ass POS duckbill mags - because they all wanted an AK, but couldn't afford/justify them, and they saw the SKS "as basically an AK". I'm sure some had the dust cover scope mounts, but I don't remember ever seeing any.

I think back around that time, thumbhole Mak-90s were going for around $350-$375 (here, anyway), and of course, SKS rifles were significantly less.

But Hell, who knows.
I know Tapco makes all kinds of crap for them nowadays, so people must be buying it.

Back to the ad in question, I wonder if he would take $150 for just the gun without the disgusting crap furniture on it? He can keep the shitty duckbills too if I can have the original box mag that goes with it.
I'll worry about finding a stock.
