    Found a nice condition Chinese norinco sks with bayonete and sling got the guy at the shop down to 350. Does this sound like a good deal with this tiny amount of info I have given.

    A Norinco should only run you $300. At least thy do here in PA. I would check at a local gun show.. you can find them cheaper. I would expect to pay $350 for a Yugo.

    And you say "nice condition".. is it used? I'd hope not at that price.

    No gun shows down here for 2 months Naples Florida is always a little pricey I'm gonna have to check tomorow should be new. Condition was so good I had the guy hold it for me just till tomorow. New to sks's still trying to learn doing lots of research but pricing is iffy except at gunbroker.com And they where around 300.

    Definitely shop around. I really think you can find a better price. Not to mention you're saying you "got him down" in price. Doesn't seem right to me, but prices could be different down there. But ive even been told by others not living in PA that even $300 for a Norinco is on the high side.

    It depends on a lot of factors.

    First, are all the serial #s stamped, and matching?

    Is the gun in NIB condition ? Is the barrel faultless?

    Cleaning rod, and kit in the stock in place?

    350$, IMHO, would be a higher price to pay on a Norinco in

    only OK condition.

    Were you pointing another gun at the seller during this transaction?

    Around here, a Norinco SKS would cost around $250.

    The gun looks like a truck gun but works like a machine.... Bought it cause my brother was looking for one. I like my AR15.

    I'll send you 450$.

    Buy me three just like it, and you make 150$.

    Otherwise, it's not a good example of SKS prices,

    in the here and now, for the average person.

    The average is $350 around here. I was just sayin they can be had for less.... I also bought a sig 226 for $300 but obviously that doesn't happen every day either.

    I recently bought a Yugo model from J&G for $330. And I missed out on a used Yugo model with a lot of ammo for $285 , advertised on backpage. com.

    I would get it. GO NORINCO. Norinco SKS's are some of the highest quality SKS's there is. Same way with Norinco AK's. And it is starting to get harder to find them. If I had a choice between Yugo, Romanian, and Norinco I would go with the Norinco.

    I know what you mean lol. Hope you'll be happy with it. As far as what you paid, yeah you could've done a little better, but you could've done worse too. If it hasn't got a high round count i wouldn't worry about it.
