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.

$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.

Does it have the nite sights and gernade launcher?
If so, good price.

Here's mine



Hey this bowling pin had it coming. One that looked suspiciously like it cost me a 300 game.

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

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.:yup:

I wouldn't pay that for an SKS when you can buy an AK for $400 and be able to use AK magazines. By the time you put a TAPCO stock on so you can switch $35 SKS magazines, you'll have spent the cost of an AK anyway.

With all due respect that's not the point here, he is looking at buying an SKS not an AK. Maybe he already has an AK or just does not want one. Most SKS owners are not looking to "tacticool" their SKS either and make it an AK wantabe. They are different rifles and both have different strengths and weaknesses. The SKS is not a just a cheaper lesser desirable rifle you get if you can't afford an AK. I own several examples of both rifles and the SKS is an all-together different gun with its own characteristics that stand on its own as both a shooter and as part of a collection. The Tapco detachable SKS 20 round mags go for around $20 by the way.
