    I've got the $300 in savings, this place has them in excellent condition w/ night sights, and they already have my C&R on file

    Yugo night sights are all burned out to my knowledge unless someone replaced them.

    Personally I wasn't wowed by the sks. I'd wait a few months until stock starts to build and spend $350 for an AK.

    first off, i dont really give a shit about you, or anything you to.

    second, SKS's are decent rifles for what they are. i'd rather have an AK (and i do)

    You should have bought it awhile ago when they were $100.

    I would not pay the current market price for an SKS.

    Got a Yugo SKS about 4 years ago for $169 but I've only fired it a handful of times. It's my loaner gun for hunting if SHTF really happens

    No, when food is scarce and I need someone to go out hunting for it but don't want to loan out an AR. I wouldn't want to be stuck with an SKS for self defense

    This.. If your willing to spend upto $300 if you look around you should be able to score a Norinco, maybe even a Ruskie if your lucky.
