The SKS comes up a lot on this board, and I thought you may enjoy a report on what prices of various SKS rifle variations did in the first quarter of 2013: GunStockMarket 2013 First Quarter SKS Market Report. Hope you enjoy.

Prices on that site seem high. I've not personally seen stuff that much, but if their only source is gunbroker apparently there are some crazy people on there!

Source data is from many sites (see the current listings and sales), extremes for low and high happen to be from GunBroker for this period of time. Look at the 2012 data, other sites are in the data. The sales pages will take you to confirmed sales so you can check for yourself.

The site you are referring to does not sell anything, only reporting on data that is publicly available. Prices are not "on there", nor was the data groomed in any way; just callin' 'em as I see 'em. Been to a gun show lately? Prices are crazy.

the SKS is King of New York (for those with even a 1/2 a clue). Prices jacked around these parts for obvious reasons (I'm in NY). I think it affected the national prices, as I saw some serious prices prevail on Gun Broker.

YMMV.

I should have bought a case of SKSs in 1993. I think I paid $98 for my chinese SKS.

That $140 was probably late 1990s prices?

I remember Russian SKSs costing $75 in the early 1990s.

$200 used to buy an SKS and a case of Russian hollowpoint 7.62x39.

The Russian and Chinese military SKSs are still available for decent prices in Canada.

With a bit of searching one could find deals of refurbed Russians for just under $200 after taxes and maybe shipping. New old stock 1960s Norinco military production goes for about $190 plus 13% tax and about $25 shipping.

The guns are selling briskly though. I've seen my local gunshop get about two dozen in and sell them off pretty quickly.

We've still got some sources of ammo (ie. PRC) that cushions us from the ammo shortages in the US, but prices have generally gone up to about $300/1000rds, vs about $225 for a crate of 1040rds Czech ammo a few years ago.

So the rifles are still a reasonably affordable option here, but for how long will be anyone's guess.

Yes, I think it was in late 90s. However, it does have a laminated wood stock, and otherwise a fine fit and finish, so I confess I might have paid a little above the prevailing rate.

And I still have that case of Russian Hollowpoint!

Those were the good ole days. Walk into a gun show with $200 and walk out with 2 sks rifles, or walk out with an sks and a case of ammo.

I sure do miss those russian wooden cases of 7.62x39, the wooden case with the grab handle on each side.

Collapse of the USSR was a gun and ammo boom for the US. I fear those days are gone forever.
