    Probably more than it's worth knowing my track record. This is a great question.

    See if this link will allow you to price them.

    Well, it didn't. You might take a look at GunBroker and type in Russian SKS.

    $250 would be good. $300 would be fair.

    Frustrating to think of what we paid for them in 1995-'96.

    Yugo SKS's are selling for $350-400 in my area...crazy. I think the Russian would be selling for more, I haven't seen one in a while. Last year $275 would have been a good price. Man I miss the old days when I bought my first Chinese SKS for $75 at the local gun show. Please post pics if you buy it.

    My local store has them for $299. But they're a little out of the way for you.

    $250 would be good, definitely wouldn't spend more than $300. I payed $230 for mine a year or two back.

    It really all depends on the rifle. early models 1949- 52 get allot more then the most common 53-55. then it also depends on condition and whether or not it is a original or a factory refurb and the factory plays a big roll in the price Tula or Isvich(spelling)? Tula being the most common.

    Fair condition refurbs go for around $350 I have sold Mint from factory non refurbs for $500

    Here is a link to the best site on the web for info on SKS. These guys know there stuff.

    I'd only buy a romanian SKS without the grenade launcher. I've heard too many stories about the 59/66 with the grenade launcher turning into a single shot rifle due to the faulty gas trap design. In perfect condition, clean bore, clean action and with all the accessories and the 10 round box mag taken off I would pay $250

    Got my Russian SKS for $119 out of shotgun news probably around 1996 or so.

    Co-worker was an FFL so he didn't charge us any dealer mark-up and we got the volume discount for buying more than 5 of them.

    Nice rifle! Not surprised to see Russian SKS's for $250+ these days.
