I had a friend that I trade with often let me have this for well under $300. He claimed to have it 20+ years in a safe. It is a 1964 SKS with original sling, cleaning kit, and rod. It also has matching numbers on all parts. It has a chrome lined barrel. On top of that, it is probably 97% or better in condition. And, as he says, I was the first to shoot it, which I believe because of the cosmoline substance in the barrel. Any value? I was going to "trick" it out but most say to keep it original.
