$249 Chinese SKS @ Centerfire Systems

Post by NorincoKid » Thu Oct 31, 2019 9:49 am

Just a heads up, Centerfire has some rough looking C&R Military SKS's in at a decent price (these days).

Ranging from $249 to $269 , with the $269 being all matching numbers, fully functioning with a cracked stock.

And $249 for non-matching / mechanical issues;

Well.....I got one coming. Im curious to see how bad they are. For the extra $20 I wen't with the matching numbers one.

Gonna be on the lookout for a blonde commercial Chinese stock set.

I love the smell of cosmoline in the morning......

Maybe a decent candidate for stripping down and repainting/refinishing it. Been awhile since I've put my 03FFL to use.

I've seen trigger assemblies go for nearly $150 , worst case scenario its probably worth the price just in parts.

They're beat to hell for sure. At least they're cheap.

This happens all the time. Remember when they got a bunch of HK94’s from the California prison system? They were selling them for thousands less than the going rate at the time. People who previously paid top dollar for them were royally pissed. But eventually when the supply ended, prices slowly crept back to normal. Hey, this is America, & they can price them wherever they want. Usually that means people complain the price is too high, but not always. a GARY.

Stock is toast. Cracked through the lug area.

I cleaned 99% of the cosmoline off. lined the bottom of the oven with tin foil and just put all the disassembled parts in there, most of it just melted right off.

All the metal looks pretty good. 90%+ of the original bluing is still there and in good shape. Still have to scrub the bore but just looking after the cosmoline melted out, id expect it to clean up quite well.

They look like beavers snuck in the warehouse while stored...and did what beavers do.
I have 2 unissued, minty Yugos w/o the grenade launcher I bought for that price years ago.

I fitted a Yugo stock to this one for now, will have to do until I can find an appropriate blonde/chinese Chu stock.

I may have a spare wood handguard in the parts bin if you need it.
