I liked 'em for $100. New. With accessories. A decent enough "I can treat it like carp" rifle actually.

Who's the maker tho? Condition!?

Comparing an SKS to a modern AR15 is like comparing on old "International Harvester" pick up to a new Escalade...however, they work every time you pull the trigger, are easilly fitted with detachable magazines, and are more accurate than the AK.

That's a good price for any semi with .30 cal knock down power...especially in today's market.

Good Luck

Tack

How messed up is the metal? For $250, i wouldn't care how bad the wood was.

Get a picture up or more detailed description, please.

A $100 SKS hasn't been around for quite some time.
