Thanks, I might pick it up from this family member. I'm pretty sure it is matching. They said they would do around 400 for it so I guess that's a good price.Tula? Imported by KBI?
That one looks to be in excellent shape in the one picture that you've posted.
Without other pictures(showing condition/matching parts) etc., it's hard to give a value, but I've recently seen ones in similar shape as yours close at auction anywhere from $600-$800 depending on the day on GunBroker.
With no major blemishes, yours may fetch around the upper end of that range.
I'll have to check it out and see.It's probably worn out. The Russians never dropped them unlike French guns.
$400 is a great price. A fair amount of these refurbished Russian SKS were imported, and some have been kept in the same condition as the day that they were imported.Thanks, I might pick it up from this family member.

I might be able to get a pic this weekend. The ones I have now were taken about 6 months ago. Are you just looking for the manufacturer?Can you get a pic of the top of the receiver?
Refurb or not, $400 is a great deal for a Russian SKS nowadays, do it, if you end up regretting it, you wont lose money
Tula 1953Year and maker ( Tula or Izzy ) just out of curiosity
Yeah I was looking into this, if I end up getting it this will work for me.FYI, if your family member is close on the tree it is legal w/o an FFL transfer.
