Actually I got it for less than 1K It's a Correct grade SA from CMP. All I had to do was clean out the cosmoline.

Nice SuperGus - You have yourself one damn fine "battle" rifle there brother. Take care of it and it will take care of you, for probably more years than you have left.

Good purchase! Now all you need to do is clean the cosmo again, and again, and again, and again....

I already learned from cleaning my SKS, clean it till there's no more cosmoline and then clean it again! This time I threw everything but the barrel in a baking pan in the oven until the cosmo was dripping off everything, then I used Shooter's Choice Foaming Bore Cleaner on everything and let it soak. Then I blasted everything down with Birchwood Casey Gun Scrubber. I only had to scrub a few areas.
