i would have a compentent gun shop do an evaluation, but IMO the the Remington 7400 is probably going to be worth a bit more than the SKS and depending on the age and condition, it could be quite a bit of difference.

I would think the Remington would be more valuable, but I guess it depends on which you'd want more and have more use for.

Alright thanks anyone have experience with a wasr-10 ak47? Its in really good shape and he's trying to trade also

Ask yourself why he is so intent on your .30-06.

Sorry I misspoke a different guy has the ak47. Are the accurate? Any issues I need to know about.

Winchester94 12-08-2013 04:57 PM

I'd think the Remington would be the most accurate of all three, and better looking.

I have a 7400 carbine that is my "poor man's battle rifle". Accurate, reliable, WAY more powerful than either the SKS or the AK. The Yugo SKS can have problems. The gas system is prone to corrosion if not cleaned properly. The WASR-10 started life as a low capacity AK clone. Many have had the mag wells opened up to accept standard capacity (30 and 40 rd) magazines. Some were badly done and have reliability issues as a result. Also by enlarging the mag well, you put the gun under section 922r of the Federal laws. You MUST change out some of the parts to US made parts or be in violation of Federal law.

If you are happy with the 7400 and it serves a purpose in your collection, keep it or hold out for a better deal

This one comes with 3 30rd mags and 3 10rdmags the mags have been narrowed down not the gun. It comes with 230rds and a case and scope mount.

What do you want to end up with at the end if the trade? What do you want to do with a rifle? Do you hunt? If so, where and what game?. Are you looking for a more compact rifle shooting an intermediate cartridge that is most effective inside of 300 yds?

Knowing what your gun owning priorities are for this deal would help us help you.

A Yugo SKS is a decent carbine. They lack some of the simplicity and chrome lining that other SKS rifles have. The grenade launcher gas bypass can flop at the wrong times.

The WASR is a decent AK clone but many had issues of canted gas blocks, canted front sight bases etc. without being able to inspect it first hand if hold off. If you can inspect it and everything is straight and there is only a little mag wobble it should be fine. I I have had a couple and they've been good shooters.
