Got one of these way cheap in the last minutes of a gun show a few years ago. It's in excellent shape with the bayonet, cleaning kit and everything. I cleaned it all up and I've fired several hundred rounds through it. It's a blast to shoot. Mine is a rebuild, it has the rebuild markings. All the metal parts have the same serial while the stock serial has been changed. There's not a scratch on the gun anywhere other than the stock serial that's X'd out. It's a great home defense rifle and above the bed is where it hangs. Sweet! This one is a 1954, and I forget the origin but it's not Chinese.
i have a yugo sks you can trick them out cheap,tapco stock.removable clips.fireandpeep sites and you got a poor mans sloppy ar15 that never fails...and hits hard.
I also have a Yugo SKS. Fun to shoot. Rigged with the folder bayonet and grenade launcher. I display it sometimes, with a dummy Israeli grenade mounted on it. I think it is an ingeniously designed muli purpose weapon.
I've got a Norinco beauty right now. But these stories of buying a Russian or Chinese for $100.00 are ancient history.
What used to be a shooters grade(fair cond.) now sells for $200.00 and more; hey folks!!! The supply of them dried up
and as that occurs, the price goes up. Just look at the Nagant M-44.
bean, there is a crap load of sks,s out there, I think that as the price of other millitary guns goes up it drags the sks along with them,unless importers are having a hard time bringing them in,at this time I I don,t think so, although the goverment out of washington sure as hell mite chang that......
Well, uglydog56, as a dealer I wish I could find any wholesaler that has them and doesn't charge $200.00 plus. I would buy them all day at $150.00....lol
hey guys so how much is a SKS now ?? like good deal ?
I bought my Norinco at a gun store for $100 about 10 years ago. Put in in a fiberforce stock with a bi-pod and a few accessoires. I hardly shoot it and would gladly sell it for the right price
Outlaw54, THERE is the key phrase; "For the right price".
MSRP back then might have been $250.00. NOW, most
Yugo's with the UGLY grenade launcher and goofy sight
goes for that. As I said, I have bought plain-jane Yugos for $200.00, but only when I have a buyer in mind. I prefer the
Norincos for several reasons. What is your "Right Price"?
(Webmaster, I'ld be glad to pay the site for the transaction, which will never occur anyway).
Contacted Impact Guns about this SKS listing and was told that they have no SKS's in stock and are not associated with Gun directory.
Check your email Beaner, I never saw the 6/30 post
Back in the mid-1990's, these were flooding the gun stores. In NH, for instance, they were available form $110-140 depending... I bought one, fixed it so it could use detachable banana magazines and bought 1000 rounds of non-corrosive fmj ammo to play with it. Then, another sotre had one with gobs of accessories that looked unfired so I bought another one. I put a cheap scope on that one. They have occasioanl jams especially when you stuff the mags to the max; they run better if you load them 2 short of max.??? As for accuracy, they are shooters and shots more than 200 yds away unless bench rested would be iffy. The 7.62 x 39 has a SP loading as well as the common fmj, but it is not quite enough for deer - use it for woodchucks & rabbits... Beware when you buy 7.62 x 39 ammo because a lot of it is corrosive. You can shoot a lot of cheap ammo with this guy in a hurry but despite its heritage, it's a fun gun unless the crappola really hits the fan.
I'll agree with you Bud.
In the past the SKS's that came in were of good quality. Now you just don't know and in my opinion anything for an SKS over a 150 bucks walking out the door is way too much. I bought a couple of them for "trading purposes." If the crap ever hit the fan they be worth something to someone who needed a rifle real quick and was willing to trade for something I needed.
Here's the problem with the SKS. You can do a lot with them and spend quite a bit of money but WHY? There are parts available except for what is critical and what needs to be replaced. You will not find hammers, trigger assemblies or disconnectors parts at all and bolt parts are very hard to come by and are usually from cannabilized weapons. Further the parts may not fit without gun smithing. The entire trigger assembly was not meant to be repaired but thrown away and replaced with a spare. If people think they're getting an AK on the cheap they're not. The SKS in all forms is a throw away weapon. Never customize it. You can get it fixed but it will cost you as much or more than the weapon is worth.
Well, another opinion given...But, you know how opinions are.
I've had many SKS's and never had any parts "break". I found them to be more accurate for long distance than MOST, but not all AK's. I have an AK I bought from someone on this website that was missing the axis pivot spring and without it
it will fire about 3 rounds before the hammer spring moves over and jams the trigger release. Thanks, you know who you are.....
But they were made for different purposes. One is to spray alot of lead at relatively short distances; the other for longer kills.
If you have ANY SKS's you don't want, just send them to me! LMAO!!
Sorry Beaner what I said about the SKS is not an opinion, it's fact and there is a difference. Just try to find parts like the trigger group. They're listed but just not available and if you can find one ( I can't ) the list price is 90 bucks and you can't be sure if it will fit. There are a huge number of variations as well and if you think you're getting a deal on an Yugo you're not because the barrels aren't chromed. Shoot crap ammo with corrosive primers ( luckily not much around ) and you'll have crap for a barrel. Speaking of barrels, you don't know if the one you've bought is pinned or screwed. Lots of variations with the bolt assemblies too. The SKS unlike the AK was not meant to repaired in the field and parts interchangeability for them is a nightmare. The SKS is what I said it is, a nice throw away weapon, adequate for a 150 dollar price tag and not much more. BTW all parts break, you just haven't used them enough.
...and Chevy-Ford, etc. I don't buy many Yugo's anyway. I much prefer the Chink ones. And, yes, I do have AK's. M-70's and AMD-65's have been great, for what they were designed for. If you let the bad guys get close, it's a superior tool. But for 200-300 yards, I'll still take the SKS.
Oh, and I own both a Chevy AND a Ford pickup.
But, out in lousy conditions, I'ld take either an SKS OR an AK over the black rifles. I trained with and carried an M-14; if the
Army had had a good muzzle brake on it(like on the FAL) I
would have been in love. 500yd shots with open sights were a breeze. And I do love the new SOCOM 16; hell of a hog gun.
i guess i lucked out cause it sounds like my norinco should be a piece of crap according to these posts, however it has never jammed or misfired and is rather accurate to at least 75 yards. i would have no problem hunting deer with this rifle... in fact i do. it doesnt shoot bullets through the same hole at 500 yards or the bullet doesnt travel at 5 times the speed of light but its tough and wont fail. ballistically the same as a 30/30 and that round has taken a whole bunch of deer.
Well, emay, I have to agree with you. I have a Norinco right
now that I play with regularly; tough, reliable, and I've never needed to find "trigger parts" in all the ones I've had and sold.
Nobody has come back to find out if I had parts to repair them, usually accessories to trick them out. I just had and sold an AK(that I bought off this site) that was a real trip to get right. When I sold it, it worked like it was designed; go
bang and spray lead, by no means a precision rifle. The high end AK's aren't too bad to 100 yards, but I've not seen any shoot as well as an SKS except the long barreled sniper version, but then again, technically not the "usual" AK. As I
said in an earlier reply, the AK and the SKS were made for two different jobs.
You know, I hate "blanket ads" like one that has been up for ever here. Gives MSRP not the price they have one for sale! Have checked the site, as I stated in an earlier reply, and none are avaiilable at $250.00. I feel it's VERY misleading and
bordering on false advertising.
Impact Guns, PULL THE AD!
