They're a good truck gun if nothing else. I've seen them going for $400 + and that was before all the boom.
Sks came before AK. They were the first gun the 7.62x39 was introduced in. $215!!!
Similar working action to an AK. SKS uses a short piston independent to the "plunger" and charging handle. AK uses a long piston 1 piece through gas tube.
$10 and ill pay shipping.
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
If you have a Chinese SKS, you've got one of the very best.
These have the chrome chamber and bore. you shouldn't have any trouble moving it for $400.
I'd keep it if I were you.

One of my first milsups was a "bubba'd " up SKS. Still have it and some of it's cousins. Fine shooters.
I have an sks. That is my son's favorite gun. You will get a lot more than $200 in an auction. In this crazy time I would not be suprised to see someone pony up $500 in an auction.
