    SKS Value??

    Saw a Norinco SKS in small (soon to close) gun shop. Spike bayonet, matching numbers, looked in very good condition.
    Asking $350. I have most of the SKS makes and have not bought any for new ones for some time. Price seems
    pretty decent, but I have not priced any lately.

    Question? Current value of Chinese SKS? Would it be worth picking it up even though it is a duplicate.

    350.00 is a fair price in my area for a Norinco. I recently sold a Factory 26 for 375.00, it when in a day.

    That's a good buy in Kali. The base line here starts at $400+, then there's the .gov shake down add ons. Is that an OTD price? I'd get just because....because I'm an SKS junkie. PAX

    I agree with that. if he's closing shop, the chance he'll take 300 is pretty good.

    Thanks, I saw most of the comments, made offer and he came down $25.00. It looks in really good condition, great bore, matching numbers. I rather like
    SKS rifles myself, so ran down the road and picked it up. I managed to get some dirt/dust on stock taking pictures (LOL)
