Default Norinco SKS Price Question



Advertise Here

I have the opportunity to buy a Norinco SKS for $250. I don't know everything about it yet cause I won't see it until tomorrow.

Here's what I know

- Synthetic Stock - pistol grip (one colapsable stock, one not)

- Scope (don't know kind or brand)

- 3 magazines

- 50 - 150 rounds of ammo

I know this is pretty vague info, I'm not an expert on SKS at all, but just curious if $250 is even in the ballpark of a good deal.

Thanks!

Sounds like a good price. There is one available used in a local shop for $245.00 but no extras...rifle only.

Can you get all the original parts, put it back to stock and dump the tapco "stuff"?
A Norinco (if not a made for export commercial version) is a very nice SKS. The bubba "mods" can only hurt the reliability and value of the weapon.

Do the numbers match?
Is there an arsenal mark?

That being said, if you know it can send 7.62 down range reliably and SKS accurate, yeah, it's worth 250 IMO.

Here's one (Norinco), Arsenal /666\ (OH CRAP!) Mil version, 100% original. There are many like it, but this one's mine. Stock SKS' look/run awesome.

From what I've seen lately I would buy it. Sounds like a fare price. If it work properly that is.

If you could get a factory stock with it I owuld be all over it. Best I saw at the gun show last weekend was $275 and it was a rough Yugo. Norincos in fair shape were going for $325-375.

I really like my Norinco SKS. Its in like new condition. I have it in a new Tapco stock now with 3 Tapco 20rnd clips and its a really cool gun. I do have all original stuff with it also like new condition. All numbers match also. Some dont like the Tapco stuff but I really like it and the clips never fail very reliable.

Here is my Norinco. Got it a local gunshow for $175. Seemed unfired other than proof rounds. Like new. Wood looks the best. Great rilfe for fun or hunting. All matching numbers.











Good luck. I hope it is a nice rifle.

Thats a nice rifle looks identical to mine wood color and all. Mine dont have the bayonet or lug. It has the places on stock for the sling but dont have one on it. Very nice!! If you got that for $175 they should have just gave it to you.

If the rifling is good and the rifle works, that's a good deal.

See my thread here (http://www.survivalistboards.com/sho...d.php?t=203816) if you want to up the SKS' capabilities a bit, none of the modifications will affect the reliability of the rifle. And despite the naysayer's, tapco are the only aftermarket stocks/magazines that I would trust.

Be sure to take a borelight and cash with you when you inspect it. Especially good if your state allows private sales.

Inspect it.
Buy it.

more purist BS- nothing wrong with Tapco SKS products. There is no reliability issue with them. Just because YOU don't like the tactical updated look doesn't mean someone else shouldn't. There are pro's and con's for both but personally being able to change the LOP and having a more comfortable firing position is really the only reason someone should need. That being said having a wooden club to swing around is a nice backup but who even needs that when you have the bayonet attached? I like the Tapco stock system and if I had the funds would change it out. You can stick to your outdated thinking and clips, I'll take the RELIABLE easy to use and quicker 20rnd Tapco mags.

- doesn't look "BUBBA" to me, more like badass

Its a good deal. Any of the rear cover scope set ups I have seen leave alot to be desired. Most have low end scope on them or screws rattle out and the fact you have to take it off to field strip the rifle. Best bet is use the iron sights or a red dot mounted on the gas tube.

I have at times considered buying some clips for mine. But I have an AK so keep my SKS as is, that and I have far to many gun oriented things to spend the 120 or so dollars to get 5 clips.

Those tapco stocks are nice. Mine has the conventional stock but synthetic, came with the rifle. I have looked at the tapco stocks but always find something else to spend the money on than a stock I really don't need.

I keep mine as is, I just have other guns to do what ever thing I was considering doing to my SKS. Its one of those 'okay your going to back me up here's a rifle and a pouch full of stripper clips'.
