Default Is it me, or is this SKS on GB going for crazy $$$

Not sure if I can hotlink to the auction, so, I'll post a pic, but, I think this may be the highest price I have ever seen an sks go for.

Sure, it has the cheap ass chinese scope, but, its not military issued, its not even a Cowboys Companion that came with the painted shipping crates.

The only thing I am not familiar with is the scope case, but, there are pictures on SKS fact sites that show the same one.


The scope is just a 2.75x polytech, and the mount is not uncommon.

Can anyone spot WHY this would go for almost, 1500 bucks or more?

Only ones I've seen go for that are the North Korean ones.

The stupid is strong is some people.

I think a NK or East German would go for more.

There's a standard Rusky in a local shop here with a price tag on it for $949. Nothing special about it either.
I don't pretend to understand.

Would y'all pay $480 for a Chinese Type 56 Factory 26 SKS or $1300 for an 1941 SVT40?
