So, what would you pay for a SKS and why? I Just got into an argument with a friend of mine who says Im trying to screw him. I offered him between 250-300 (which is the most I would pay for a SKS) for a mil-surp Chinese SKS packed in cosmo. I tried to explain to him that its not a M that takes AK mags and such. He wanted 500 and said a pawn shop would give him 300. Also tried to explain that Im not going to pay the price of the times and Ill pay what its worth. Im not gonna pay 900 for a 400 AK ya know? Dont get me wrong, Its a nice gun. Gonna take a lot of work getting the cosmo off and stuff. The stock needs some work and its missing the bayo and cleaning rod. I told him the pawn shop would give 3 and turn and sell for 6+ or whatever. Hes says Im being unrealistic. I told him to find someone who has no idea about SKSs and sell it to them, Im not paying that price. Am I in the wrong or what? To compare, I bought 2 Yugos 6 months ago for 300. What do you think?
