Default I saw an SKS for.......

I saw a SKS w/ a Tapco stock for sale at a flea market. The guy wanted $999.95 for it. I went to the restroom and looked in the mirror but didn't see STUPID tatooed on my forhead. Probably still there if anyone wants to jump on it.

Seeing an asking price on any used item does not in any way mean that it would ever sell for that price.

I have a Yugo SKS that I'll probably keep 'till I die. I've thought about removing the grenade launcher but it seems more trouble than it's worth.

Seen M types on gunbroker a few weeks ago sell over a grand and sell fast. Gunbroker has an M type now starting at 500. Still way too high you ask me but the market bares what it bares I guess.

Prices seem to be going down but not to pre-scare levels, and I don't think they will. It's like gas. It goes up .75 and goes back down .50.

I am always suprised at what stupid people are willing to pay for something.

My nephew sold a nice Chinese Type 56, factory 26 SKS in wood stock with one removable 30 round mag as a kicker for $475 at this weekend's gun show. I think he decided the wife didn't rate a nice SKS.

The kicker is any gun sold at a flea market has a better than average chance of ending up in the hands of a person prohibited from possessing said gun in the first place. Felons and illegal aliens love such places for gun buys. Around here you cannot do a transaction with anyone at a flea market w/o speaking some Spanish

Saw a nice yugo go for 350 this weekend at a gun show. But most were looking for a guppy at 500 - 600.
