I am not sure I could pay $375 for an SKS. Six months ago the same rifle was $250. Once the hysteria dies down SKS's will go for $250 or less once again.

Not likely.

Dur to the now-outlandish prices of all other "EBRs", the SKSs will be next to be gobbled up by new buyers as a suitable-substitute for too-expensive AKs. I couldn't imagine anyone being stoopid enough to let their Norc go for under $400.00 these days. If anything, they will not be re-sold at any loss, but rather kept in the safes.

Get the norinco. especially if it is a real military rifle, i.e. a rifle made in the triangle 26 factory with a serial no. on the back of the reciever cover.

Just got a offer from a guy wanting $250 fr his Yugo, bad thing is that the front sight has been removed and grenade launcher removed and a red dot sight put on. I don't like that because I like my rifle in issue condition

Certainly not ideal but at $250 I'd still do it.
