The twit mentioned a similar one sold on "the other site" for $4500. I assume he meant gunbroker.com, so I went to check Completed Auctions.
Highest price for one that actually sold? $800 for a Chinese bladed Honor Guard SKS. Highest bid on a Russian Arsenal rebuild (which is what he has, it's not even original) was $375.50, but didn't sell, due to the Reserve Price being higher than that.
Yugo looks a lot like a Russian,but no chrome in bore or chamber,most have grenade launcher,and some parts are unique to that rifle,other than that they seem to be good,and they ARE readily available.:biglaugh:
I have seen Russians go for big money that have some historical value to them, but those have had proof with certificates of authenticity. I think that guy just put his line in the water hoping to get a bite.
