    Depends. If selling to a private citizen, would go for more than to a dealer, who MUST make a profit to stay in business.

    Suggestion- take a stroll over to gunbroker.com and Auctionarms.com You may need to register, but as a buyer (should be no charge)

    Run a SMART search or advanced search- Use CLOSED IN LAST 90 DAYS, and the term Yugo SKS. That will give you the best idea of what they HAVE sold for in past 3 months.

    In original "Excellent" Condition $250 - $350 depending on year etc.
    With a T6 you might get $250 if you find someone who wants a Bubba'd rifle.
    Collectors won't touch it.

    You can find more info on value at Survivors SKSboards.

    Yugo's are slowly drying up but I was never a fan of them and sold mine years ago.

    Albanians bring $450+
    Russians $400+
    Chicoms $350+
    Yugo & romanians $250 +/-

    I bought an "Arsenal New" Yugo 59/66 in 2006 and paid $199 for it. It's probably worth $300 today. A Tapco stock decreases the value. Yours would probably be worth $200-$250 if it looks new.

    The potential buyers must not have found the grenades which would make the clumsy length and forward c.g. practical and fun.
