I bought a Norinco model with the Green Monte Carlo stock in green park' finish in 1995 brand new for $120.00 and a case of 1200 rounds of wolf hollow point ammo for $79.

I still have both and the rifle has had maybe 200 rounds through itů

Thumbs up

Sadly i started getting into guns around the 2008 crisis... and paid 400 for a slightly used Chicom Sks with bayonet and everything else.

And paid 200 for 1000 rnds of ammo.. sucks that you older members had the advantage i didnt and squandered it!

Right now i would be sitting on a beach after buying truckloads of sks and so many other surplus arms after the cold war and selling them during 2008!!!!

anyway i got another lower quality one for 200 for parts or a backup this one didnt have a bayonet.. turns out they are banned on it... i didnt care put one on anyway

then my father ( A miracle from god) Got the deal of his life when we found a Perfect condition Original Russian with a super strange colored stock (russian camo) for only 140$ The luck that man has


Gave him some of my ammo as a B day gift.. and yes i bubba ed all of them.. and kept the original mags. Duckbills have gone up .. but its a great shooter for the poormans pocket.


only time i had a problem was using Wolf ammo.. failed to load.. fire.. do anything but jam jam jam and toast.

Golden tiger.. and this surplus russian stuff works just fine. Or your brass varieties too.


Turns out you can you the bayonet (spike) as a mono pod when firing prone!

Watch your fingers with the cleaning kits inside... they bite!


the second one i got had a scope... big problem dont use them with scopes they arent meant for that.. nor the magazines.. but at least the magazines work.


They can afford to be dirty you dont have to clean them like m16 variants...

faawrenchbender: One purchase without prior reading was a good lesson. I was a real Dummkopf.

kroenen117:
At least ammo came back to about .20/round.
If you can soon afford a large heap of x39 ammo fairly soon, before rising copper/fuel prices (China's/India's growth + Middle Eastern "troubles in the streets") get much worse, would this help compensate for a higher-priced rifle?

Both of us missed the good times years ago, but even if many of us Had become interested, we would have shot up most of the ammo anyway...as we might not have anticipated much higher price$ later.

Up here in Soviet Canuckistan, you can pick up a new (not refurb) Chinese SKS for $199, and they'll even throw in a hard case and a T-shirt.....

However, in nearly everything else firearms related, Advantage: USA

Weeks ago I've seen other Canadian guys report that large numbers of Russian SKS are coming in.
If both Russians and original, very good Enfield #4s are easy to find at reasonable prices (along with both ammo types), suppose it could be worse.

I only have 1 SKS, and it was a Yugo I bought long ago.
Curious about your statement about original ,VG Enfields, from where?

We need some Original VG Enfields way down here, in the Colonies, 'cause that's one of the reason I got my C&R! Haven't found one worth getting since I got it. Guess I'll go CMP and get a lesser Grand, or an Carbine, but they're no where near the piece of History for me

In the 90s, if not later, the Canadian govt. issued Enfield #4s to auxiliary officers in their northern provinces.
Interesting: a WW2 battle rifle recently used for border patrol, hunting etc.

Supposedly, as a policy the rifles in Canada can't be exported to the US.

But a businessman, Mr. Joe Salter has brought some into his large firm in NH. He is a Canuck and also has a Canadian business.
Have you guys checked the large selections at "Joesalter"?
Bought my all-matching "Jungle Carbine" there in April '09. You just have to add on shipping+FFL costs.

Back in spring of '08 -quite a while before "The Election"- many on GB were already listed by the sellers at $270-300.

For any new SKS people, you might want to find an article in the "Sacramento Bee" newspaper, about a tragedy at a gun range. It stated nothing about the type of ammo etc.

Do the bolts match the actions on those in northwest AR?

If you are patient you can snag one on GB for under $250...sometimes even under $200. The are the '67 Impala of rifles - sort of attractive and will take a beating and reliable as all heck.

Sorry that I did not see your question.

Canadian guys stated several months ago (on 'Gunboards' or elsewhere) that Canada had many fresh imports of really good Russian SKS rifles.

I paid $300 for a norenco in very good condition with sling, bayonet, a carry case and 130 rounds of Wolf ammo. They typically run between $300-350 around here for just the gun in good shape.

I paid as much as I would pay for a stock SKS.

I looked at at least nine SKS's at several shops this week. They ranged in price from $500 for a Russian (complete w/box) to $220 for a complete Norinco, which I bought.
I believe the average price in this area of West Virginia is about $300.

I have a SKS-M paratroper that I wouldn't take less than 400 for. It takes AK mags.

I would have to agree a regular Chi-com about $275 -$300

My top dollar for an SKS is $300. Period. And it has to be pretty snazzy at that. I have paid (in recent months) from $215 (for a really nice Yugo, no less) to a maximum of $300 for a Russian in very excellent condition. These purchases were at gun shows here in Kentucky, where we are quite free to sell individual to individual. I adore the SKS, and regard them as quite a value in the $200-300 range. You cannot buy a finer rifle for that price. But $400 is out of the question for me. Keep shopping, friend.

Let me add here that I have only become enamored with military rifles very recently. I understand very clearly that as recently as 15 years ago, you could buy an SKS for $75. And there are many among us who RECALL those times, and won't even pay $200 for one today. But to me, these magnificent rifles are STILL a great value in the price range I described above. Upper limit, $300 out the door. Good luck.

Here in NY that would be a pretty normal shop price... Of course, we pay a ridiculous amount for everything here.

I went to a gun show today in St. Louis (1/29) and saw several SKS's. The cheapest was 325.00 and it was missing a cleaning rod but other wise in good shape. The prices went up from there. Most of the Norincos and Yugos in good shape are in the 350/375 with of course the rare Russians believe it or not in the 475 range.

I get a kick out of some of the prices in older posts. Gotta laugh or I would cry!

Bought 2 SKS last year. $375 for what appeared to be an unfired Norinco with resin stock & no bayo lug (I fixed the "unfired" part pretty pronto! ) and $400 for a refurbed Russian that HAD a bayo but the K-Sports stock it's in has no groove.

Not screamin' deals but I've been 100% satisfied with both rifles so far.

Some of it is sure to be regional owing to regional weapons laws, such as California has. But in general SKS values have increased steadily because people began to see the value in these fine rifles. Fifteen years ago you could buy them for well under $100 any day of the week. Tomorrow, I plan to pick up another very, very nice Chinese SKS for $250. By today's standards, a very fair price from what I've seen. They're a great rifle for the money even if you pay a little more than that.

Brand new to the board here. I have 2 Norinco SKS. Paid $79 for each back in the old days. One was for me and one for my Dad. I uncrated mine and only put about 200 rnds through it and it's been in the safe since. My Dad passed a few months ago and I found his while cleaning out. He never even took his out of the cosmoline. The NIB one has a s/n of 2400XXX followed by an offset H and the other 23 000XXX with the same offset H. I'm trying to decode the s/n's but I figure they were late model SKS. Wish I had picked up a few more of these at the time! Just bought them on a whim because they were cheap.

Great forum, learning lots about the SKS that I never knew!
