Hi all,

What is a fair price on a SKS-M?

Thanks in advance!

I'd pay that much. I'm not an expert with the sks, but the m model is the only one I'd buy. In my area you can't even find them. I've seen them go as high as 500-600 dollars without extra mags and ammo.

that's a very good price, especially with things being nuts as they are now.

That is an amazing price for even before recent events. Bring a light and check the barrel and cycle the action. It's a VERY good price..

That's an excellent price.

Did you check the magazine engagement on the rifle? I came across an "M" 6 months ago for a great price, but the magazine engagement was REALLY finicky. It's not an uncommon problem with that rifle. I passed on the rifle & will stick with stock SKS' with box magazines.

Thanks all! Maybe I'm not asking enough. ??

I'm actually considering selling mine. I kinda hate to do it... she's a sweet shooter and fun too. My last range visit it shot a 2" group from 100yrds. I was sighting it in that day and this was the last volley. The first 3 were 2" the rest starting flying high. Or maybe that was me... hmmm.

I guess that means the barrel is good. The magazines are standard AK 30 rounders, 1 Polish, 2 Bulgarians and the one that came with the carbine. All fit and feed great with MPS, Monarch, and Golden Tiger 124gr ammo. Also, Tula 158gr soft points... though the point gets a little "scuffed" on the loading ramp.

I'd take it off your hands at that price in a heartbeat. Which means, yeah, I'd bet its worth more.

I've actually been looking for one locally for a few years, as mine was borrowed by a family member who has decided not to return it, lol.

I've only seen one come up for sale since and the guy was only interested in trading for an AR. Which is just silly...but I was getting at is they're not really that common.

Thank you all!!

I sold it all for 450.00. Yeah, it was still a little low... even the ammo is hard to find. Never thought I'd see 7.62x39mm hard to find.
