SKS price question

Local shop has some Yugo models for 375 to 435 and some Chinese for less. I'm leaning towards the Yugo, the 435 one hasn't been fired and the 375 is in great condition. Need help deciding, not sure about price on theese.

Oh my God $435 for a Yugo SKS?

I know places vary on what prices are like, but consider this.

A gun shop in Hawaii has a VG+ Russian SKS for $400.

I can't influence you, but myself? I would not pay more than $250-$300(that is if its in absolutely 100% unfired condition) for a Yugo.

For that price you might aswell buy an AK, sks prices are getting way up there, If you are keeping it unfired for an investment it may be worth the risk.

Here in TN you have to kick Yugo SKS's out of your way for $250.

Since apparently you don't read.....this belongs in Military Surplus, not Black Rifles.

I havent seen any more SKSs sold by the big importers. Maybe SAMCO global is the only left with Yugo SKSs. THe reason why SKS prices have gone up the roof in the last year. Only way to get good deals is roam the gunshows .
