Depends. If selling to a private citizen, would go for more than to a dealer, who MUST make a profit to stay in business.

Suggestion- take a stroll over to gunbroker.com and Auctionarms.com You may need to register, but as a buyer (should be no charge)

Run a SMART search or advanced search- Use CLOSED IN LAST 90 DAYS, and the term Yugo SKS. That will give you the best idea of what they HAVE sold for in past 3 months.

It's probably worth the $100 you paid for it. You used to be able to get them for $50 around here before Cali banned them.

It may be worth even less considering this: http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f19/please-help-gas-chamber-stuck-16441/

In original "Excellent" Condition $250 - $350 depending on year etc.
With a T6 you might get $250 if you find someone who wants a Bubba'd rifle.
Collectors won't touch it.

You can find more info on value at Survivors SKSboards.

Yugo's are slowly drying up but I was never a fan of them and sold mine years ago.

Albanians bring $450+
Russians $400+
Chicoms $350+
Yugo & romanians $250 +/-

I bought an "Arsenal New" Yugo 59/66 in 2006 and paid $199 for it. It's probably worth $300 today. A Tapco stock decreases the value. Yours would probably be worth $200-$250 if it looks new.

At the last gunshow in Pasadena Yugo SKS were going for $235 plus tax. I didnt see anyone buying.

The potential buyers must not have found the grenades which would make the clumsy length and forward c.g. practical and fun.
