Shane the SKS rifles went pretty high I thought for a rifle that used to sell for $99. Out the door prices were from $465 to $580.
Mini 14 Rugers went from $900 to over $1100 out the door.
M1 Carbines were around $1000
A M94 Theo Roosevelt Commerative went for $2150 out the door and a John Wayne model went for.$2900.
A Colt AR 15 SP 1 w 2 mags went for $3480.
A Colt King Cobra went for about $2700.
I think the high item of the day was a P08 Luger w capture paper which went just under $4,000. It was Nice and was a pre war 1938. Non matching magazine and no holster. Just a run of the mill Luger.
So did they go High????

JR, You inspired me To go look at some old receipts I had tucked away. Back in ‘04 I bought a few SKS’s. I remember giving $139 for an unissued one and $69.95 each for a couple shooter grades. The real kicker was you could get 1,000 rounds of ammo for $69.95. I made a few trips there for that deal. Of course when the rifles started bringing $300-$400 I traded them off. No regrets here. I enjoy the rifles I have now much more than the ones I sold.

Sounds spot on to me. I was more into 30 cal. battle rifles at the time, but I wanted an SKS also, and found a really clean 1953 Russian SKS with the laminated stock for $250. It shoots great, typically around 1.5 MOA with the factory iron sights, which is about normal for me. Picked up a couple of boxes of Lapua 7.62x39 which were boxer primed, just for grins, then found a 1000 round case of Wolf JHPs for $80. Times have changed.

Fellas, that old trashy Norinco Chinese ammo went for a DOLLAR a round Thursday night.
I have quite a bit of it but never shoot an SKS.

I remember in probably 91 or 92 I bought my SKS from my uncles gun shop and he gave me a big paper bag full of steel core ammo....probably Norinco as well. I bought a Norinco 1911 .45 for dirt cheap.....wish instill had that one as well just because.

At one time, a buddy picked up most of the Norinco 22lr rifles at one time, bolt actions, pumps and semiautos, and all shot real well. They were pretty crudely finished, but shot real well. In fact, I still have one of the Norinco ATD22 semiautos, which is a a clone of the little Browning 22 Semiauto. It cost $95 and shoots better than the Belgian Browning I have.
