What's a Chinese SKS worth?

Post by brow_tines on Tue Aug 09, 2011 4:00 pm

I have a buddy that has a Chinese SKS for sale, he has 1 30 round clip and 2-300 rounds for it. He said he would that $225 from me for it. What does everyone think?

They are really only worth about $100-150, but due to the current situation they regularly go for $250-350 depending on make, model, and condition. If it comes with Ammo then $225 is a pretty fair deal.

If it is Chinese then its a Norinco and some of the last SKS's to be officially made. I have 2 and like them.

I am not sure about the price of the Norinco's, I have one and love it to death. Personally to me, it is well worth it.

Now, with my C&R, wholesale through Southern Ohio Guns (yes I know it isn't a Norinco or the chinese) They have the Yugoslavian Model 5966 with a 23" barrel w/gernade launcher attached and folding bayonet, fixed mag and all accessories cleaning kit in the stock as well as the oil bottle, pouch and sling, no ammo Regular wholesale 329.00 priced now at 279.00

But yes, one Mag and 2-300 rounds of ammunition, I say go for it.......


Thought I would toss that in for a comparison. Not sure if it helps or not...

my Uncle said in the mid 90's he was buying 3-4 a week at $60 dollars in California. Then they went up to $70 and then $80 during Clinton.

My SKS does not have the semi-auto switch. That allows you to shoot single shot. Here is a video of it:



That is a feature that reloaders will like. And I think it would also make it worth more. If the one you are looking at does not have that you could use that as a bargaining chip.

Not a bad price, but not an outstanding deal either. If you want an SKS I would go for it.
