Default Chinese SKS's for $300 at JG Sales

A little beat up, but cheaper than I've seen them recently.

I bought one of these last time. It was worth every penny. It needed a new stock and some bluing touch up but it had an excellent bore and it's a great shooter.

I bought one from Classic a while back. Ugly, ugly, ugly, with a beat up stock with chunks out of it and almost no bluing left -- but it's a fantastic shooter and works perfectly. The ugly is now nothing less than warm patina.

I want to justify a third, but I can't. I bought a $179 & $199 "gunsmith special" from royal tiger imports a few years ago, one of them is a "letter" gun and the other is a 1958 series.



Very tempting at $289, I have a feeling these will be more expensive than Russian refurbs one day.

After shipping and transfer, they're basically about the same as I generally see them on the classfied sites, $350 or so. And, buying used locally, you get to closely inspect what you're getting.
And I see some really nice ones sometimes, though too many these days have been goobered-up with Tapco stocks and magazines (and it seems that it's these idiots that think they're sitting on solid gold, and ask the most ridiculous prices).

I was stocking piling these for a bit when they were dirt cheap. I have sold a few off as I am starting to realize just one of these beasts will last several lifetimes. I still have a couple, and my shorty Norinco.

If you don't have one get one. Its like an Anvil that shoots 7.62 Soviet.

SKS's are a ton of fun, and their extremely smooth shooting guns, grab some Czech BXN marked stripper clips and you can run one pretty fast too.
