    That's two rifles both with serial number 1. Doesn't serial number 1 increase the value a great deal?

    SKS have dates on them and since CDNN isn't posting them there is no way to track when they were made , expecially since Russians didn't use Laminate stocks until later

    Yeah but serial number 1 of what? Etched into the receiver by the importer or are they claiming these are the first to roll off the line behind the iron curtain? :rofl:

    If someone finds out they're legitimate #1 rifles, they won't hesitate to buy them at that price. That ad has nothing to do with price gouging.

    ETA: where did you see that ad anyhow? CDNN's sight is still in panic mode and not taking online orders.

    I agree on the documentation, but if someone where to call them or collector were to show up at their facility and see proof, they'll be bought instantly.

    The Russians started every year over IIRC. A pair of #1s could be 52 and 53 and so on.

    I also would like to know which factory made them. I believe Tula and Izhesk both made the SKSs in the 1950s.
