It seems about right for a clean specimen. When you say "Chinese", do you mean the older blade bayonet models or those not made for export (Norinco)? There has been a recent batch of older Chinese models with the blade bayonets (as opposed to the "spike" bayonets) selling lately; many of them feature really beat up stocks.

I would not be too worried about the condition of the stock as long as the wood is not cracked. They clean-up very nicely. My buddies Chinese SKS looks fantastic, I picked up a beat up Yugo to work on and it works well for what it is. (2 MOA at 100 with hand loads).

The long and short story is that we will probably not see any more imported into the US, so what's out there is all we will have. The price is not bad at all and the rifles work, I like them better than the AK-47's.

That price is not too bad in today's market. There are types of Chinese SKS that are a little different than other models as well. D and M models go much higher than the price listed as they take AK mags. There is one that many call a paratrooper model that use the "normal" mag but are shorter like the M model.

Allan's Armory sells good 'new' ones that he inspects. Good guy to work with. Looks like his prices have come down a bit from $350. Really depends upon the details SKS if $350 is a deal or not. It's in the ballpark, but prices seem to be coming down.

The gun show at Evansville IN. armory there is a guy selling the older Chinese SKS w/blade for $325, I was going to buy one until I saw how beat up the stocks were.

I just bought my M59/66 from him. He was helpful and informative. He fires and function tests them before putting them up. He ships them in sturdy cases and for pretty cheap. You won't be disappointed.
