Default SKS for under 200

I am getting an SKS and I only have $200 to spend. What kind of choices do I have? Whats the point of having a grenade launcher when you cant get grenades?

There is no point in the GL for civvies. However, the Yugo SKS's are fairly inexpensive and work very well as long as they don't have corroded bores and gas tubes...

A good value.

Default SKS Under 200$

Hello all


RON L here = SERESURPLUS



Not sure where you are, but even here the Yugo SKS is over 200$? Yea, Like RM Tact said, Yea don't get the grenades and the Bloody thing is a pain to take off, so think of it as a cool deal to Look at? You can buy a California model that has it removed or thier are some Romanian SKS without that and the Blade bayonette but under $200? Man, I wish ya luck! Not meaning to be cruel, I just know what they wholesale for and 200$ is not a lot of mark up on anything worth owning!

Not too long ago sks's were dirt cheap, those days seem long gone.

I would try to avoid the models with a grenade launcher. My grandpa ( a gunsmith for over 40 years) was just talking about this the other day. I guess there is a valve that vents gas into the launcher that gets corroded. Eventually it gets a leak in it and doesn't provide sufficient pressure to eject spent casings.

In regards to to price, I paid $45 for my SKS 10 years ago.

As far as those Yugo's, I wouldn't shy away from em. Heck, they'r part of history. I really don't think you will be corroding up any vents unless you use corrosive ammo. In any case, you should clean it after use.

I bought a pristeen Russian SKS w/ folding bayo,sling,oil bottle and cleaning kit at a gun show about 10 yrs. ago also. $125 then. Get a c&r and get them from around $125 and up. I saw some not long ago for about $110. SOG has some yugo's at $129 & $159. Good luck.

Go up to $300 and you can get a WASR-10 AK with 2 30-rd magazines. Still, SKS's are around at some good prices.

Here are some sources:

Mister T, I'd suggest you save up 50 more bucks and get a Yugo with a decent bore, the gas valves can be replaced, and then you can even save up a little more and get one of those golf ball launchers. (unless you're you know where)
