Is 125.00 to 150.00 a good price for a Romanian SKS?? I was thinking yes but I'm not real familiar with them. But I'm gonna get it of its a good deal. Guy at work says he needs money...

If I remember right a buddy of mine bought one several years ago and paid $125 for it then so that should be a good buy now.

I just got it... he tried to go up on me. he said 175.00 but i got it for 140.00. still seemed like a pretty good deal to me. he through in a couple of boxes of shells. its in really good shape. one nitch on the forearm top but other than that it is in fine shape. i'm probably gonna go synthetic with it anyway.. not sure yet though..

Anyone that can comment on going synthetic with this rifle. Had some say stay with the wood and don't dress it up.

I'd stick with the wood...just looks better to me. No need to "dress it up".

They just look better in their original form to me. I don't like sporterizing military arms...I figure if they were good enough for the soldier like that, then they are certainly good enough for me. I know it's an SKS...but same basic principle applies, in my book.

Agree with BladeZealot --- it was born wearing wood!!

I did put one in synthetic a couple years ago -- accuracy went to [email protected]

I definitely don't want the accuracy going there... My shootin with it will probably suck enough just like it is. No need to make it worse... :rotflmao:

DO NOT BUY IT. IT WILL BLOW UP WHEN YOU TRY TO FIRE IT.

However, tell me who the guy is so I can talk to him into letting me have it to prevent anyone from getting hurt.

kowen, hopefully the rifle has been cleaned well but make sure the firing pin rattles when you take it apart. They can be gummed up with cosmoline and I have seen lots of pierced primers and one slam fire as a result. Good deal on the rifle.

If you insist. I try to be helpful and no one takes my advice. That offer goes for anyone who thinks thinks they have a gun that is unsafe. Specifically Colt Pythons, anything engraved, and anything that rhymes with 1911.

Do you like the SP101? I just picked up a SP101 chambered in .327. So far so good after one box of ammo. I like the .327 round because it has the wallop of a .357 and the recoil of the .32.

The SKS sells for $195 to $250 in my neck of the woods.
