    Yugo SKS...

    What's a fair price for one in good condition? More like what's the buddy price?
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I have a crappy CHinese one bought new in "93 and I paid $122.
    I would think a nice shape Yugo would fetch between friends around $375-400

    SKS prices have been creeping up steadily for the past few years.

    I seem to think $250-300ish is what I would consider a fair price on a yugo. Depending on condition and accessories. They are kind of the run of the mill SKS, nothing spectacular, but solid

    $250 is about right. I paid $70 at a yard sale for mine. Ended up making good profit when I sold it. Still got my Russian. That one is a keeper!

    Don't "tacticool" it though. Destroys value and they work great as originally designed and configured. Lots of people "upgrade" them and then start calling the rifle junk when it no longer works right with all the tapco crap hanging off of it...

    Hey thanks for the spam.

    The SKS is already in my safe. I'm trying to work out a price that's fair for me and fair for my friend.

    I paid $275 for one that looked close to unissued at a gun show in summer 2012. Now, here's a sample of what they seem to be going for:

    In short, I'm glad I found the one I've got when I found it, 'cuz wow.

    Don't much keep up with Yugo prices. Happen to be babysitting a gun show this evening and there's at least one near the door. I'll go see about it...

    ...Oh dear! $789, but it does have a cheapo scope on it.

    Have to say that my son's Yugo administers a proper whipping to my Russian SKS off of the bench rest at 100 yards with any ammo tried to date. It's the difference in 2 1/2-inch 5-shot groups or 4 to 5-inch 5-shot groups. His bore is not chrome lined as the Russian's is. His rifle has the grenade launching baggage on the muzzle end, and his trigger is markedly superior to the Russian SKS's trigger.

    When a willing seller and a willing buyer agree on a price life is as it should be.
    I would have said 250 max a while back but today roll the dice any way you look at it both happy what the heck is a 100 north or South.
    At least you have it someday that 350 maybe a cheap price.
    I though I was out of my mind when I paid 900 for a new Colt 6920 with extra mags. Not such a bad deal in hind sight.

    Yugo, when I hear/read Yugo it brings back visions of the Yugo automobile. Never would I buy anything made in Yugoslavia.

    Well then you're missing out. Guns are pretty much all they got right...
