Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

cosmoline. Not a great price, but not a rip off.

Ug I miss the days when a guy could by chinese SKS's for $75 all day long.
Either you are a weapon and your gun is a tool or your gun is a weapon and you are the tool.
I owned one about 10 years ago. It was a Chinese version....enjoyed it very much and now regret that I sold it. I was looking for a replacement tonight, and I think they are now going for almost $400 in excellent condition . I believe that I paid $129 for my first one. I could see paying $250 for one that is in great condition, but I would not pay anymore than that.
1 Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
I paid 179 for a new yugo in cosmo. This was in 2006 though. Now prices are alot more.
$250 is a pretty good price these days.

if it's in good shape get it... you can't beat that price... I had to dish out 3 bills for mine back in 2008... they're only going up in price.
Half measures availed us nothing...

The Yugoslavian SKS are good rifles and a lot of fun to plink with. I guess $250 is a decent price for an "unissued" version. This one cost me about $180 three years ago but I have a C&R FFL. Make sure you throughly clean all the cosmoline out of the bolt and gas tube. Many people got these rifle which usually were cover inside and out with this perservative jelly and the firing pins can stick and cause slamfires if the firing pin channel is clogged up. The gas valves are also a problem with some of the Yugo SKS's.
Here are a couple of good links for info on these rifles

Sorry been off here so long been crazy week yes it actually does have the grenade launcher and all the jazz no night sigths though it is in flawless shape as can be i did full strip on it and found zero problems
I love my Yugo. Picked it up for 319. It also was an unissued rifle. Survivor's SKS boards is a good source of info on these and other SKS models.
The Yugo SKS is a good plinker/truck gun. I picked up 2 unissued all matching Yugos, back when they were $100.
Love my SKS. Combat proven,and completely reliable. IMHO has better accuracy then the AK. $250 is a great price for todays standards. I have a hard time finding a worthy one for under $300.
Though I have "tacti cooled" mine, and wouldn't have it any other way.
