Default Yugo SKS barreled receivers value.

The marketplace for a local forum has
2 Yugo SKS barreled receivers for sale.
He is asking $120 for both.
I have no idea of this is a good deal,
or if I could even buy the parts to complete the
rifles?
Any input from yíall would help.

There is nowhere to get receivers that I am aware of, so this is the only way short of buying a complete rifle to get a Yugo SKS receiver.

From that perspective I would say $120 isn’t bad. I can’t tell from your post if they are $120 each or $120 for both. Either way, they aren’t importing any more SKS rifles or receivers, so what is here is likely all there will ever will be.

Finishing them out won’t be difficult, but likely you’ll end up spending more to piece one together compared to just buying a complete rifle. People usually sell those completeilled trigger housings for the Yugo SKS for around $100. Bolt and carrier, maybe $50-70. Good wood Yugo stock and gas tube & cover, that may be harder to find but they are out there.

Stuff like gas piston, operating rod and spring, etc are all readily available both as original stock or new US replacements for pretty good prices. Would also recommend a Murray’s gas valve for these yugos.

Thanks for all the good info.
The barreled receivers are $60 a piece. I sent a pm to have a look at them.

what are they worth? very little IMO, the parts individually are too expensive to justify building it

a lot of yugo SKS rifles have been imported lately, I wouldn't buy receivers except as a decoration for my desk maybe

Building them up now? As was said cheaper to buy a new rifle.

Squirreling them away for later, or as spares or trade value? I'd say go for it at that price if they are in good shape.

Where are you going to get the rest of the parts to complete them?

I've seen some parts like trigger groups and magazines, and sights and things, but where are you going to find a barrel and stuff?

OP says barreled receivers.

Would cost more to build them up now though, even having the barrel, but if one were to collect parts along the way, when a deal could be had, after a time, the way prices are going up and receivers are unobtanium, it could be practical
