With the parts missing I'd say $200. But if it was complete I'd say $250 to $300.

External mag,(one of the things with serials is the original, internal mag),

other serials don't match the receiver, even if you get it running,

at a gun show I wouldn't expect north of 250$...

But then again it's a gun show your going to. The price depends on who you will be selling it to, either a gun dealer or a gun nut. Most gun dealers at the gun shows I've been to definitely won't give you the cash you're asking for, unless your asking for alot less than it's worth. But if you sell it to just a regular gun nut then you could get a pretty good sum of cash.

Almost sold it, I told the guy $300 and he was interested until he saw that it didn't have a gas tube. I could have let it go for $200 but decided I would hold out for more. Come this fall i might get $500 out of it... I hope not.

If it's the only SKS you have buy the parts you need online and keep it. I know I would. Good performance, cheap to shoot, and fun to shoot.

Well at the least, get it working now so you know what you've got!
