GUN Good Price for an SKS?

    Went to a local pawn shop that sells guns yesterday, found what looks to be a pretty clean SKS, he had it for 175 and also had an assortment of 25&30 round magazines.

    I could probably talk him down to 200 for the gun and a 30 rd mag, is that a good price?

    Are these guns really unreliable w/ those 30 rd mags?

    Thanks

    My friend paid 160 for a brand new Norinco SKS still in packing grease IIRC.

    A used SKS would be worth maybe $100 or less.

    Find out which country the SKS is from. Either way, you shouldn't be paying more than $120.00 for a used SKS from a pawn shop. Don't pay more than $10-15 on a large capacity magazine, they're hit and miss in quality and functionality. Some work, some don't. It's just how it goes with SKS detachable magazines.

    200 from a pawnshop is normal. Pawn Shops always mark their stuff up so high it's silly.
    Go to a gunshop and get one for 100-125 and you will be better off.

    yeah, what country? makes a big difference..

    Yugo, no more than $120, I've seen the Norincos and Russians go for 150-250

    better yet, if you're 21, get a Curio & Relic license for $30, and you can order older firearms that are covered under the C&R category, at dealer discount, and have them shipped directly to your house. No FFL charge to fuck around with.. definitely worth it if you buy a lot of older guns.. Also fits one of the requirements for the Civilian Marksmenship Program if you want to grab a good deal on a Garand.
