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 and 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.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

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:

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.
I've been on this earth long enough to know that most people are nice, but it only takes one to destroy everything you work and live for...thats why I never leave the house without my Glock.

In Glock we trust.

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