    Better see what kind of shape its in first.

  3. Might be a real good deal or it might be $174 too much.
  4. If it is a pre-ban and 200 rounds of steel core--then the price wasn't high enough.

    My friend just laid away a Romanian SKS, total price 150 on sale, 175 before.
    Pro: Romanian, they were gone before people realized how great they were; Comes with a set screw scope mount and compact scope; Everything is intact
    Con: Real greasy and messy, shows signs of wear; Bayonet ring is broken open at the top; A little rust on the gas piston; I'm not 100% sure what's grease and what's not, but the barrel may need to be recrowned.

    Any experiences, or suggestions?

    He can replace the bayonet for about $10. A little rust on the gas piston can be removed with an SOS pad and some hot water. It won't hurt it.
    Why would the barrel need recrowning? Is it beat up pretty bad?
    As far as the grease, strip the SKS down and use some gasoline with a paint brush to remove the cosmoline from the metal. If the stock is okay, don't mess with it. My Romanian SKS needed a little work itself. Outside of the Yugoslavian SKS, the Romanian models were all issued, and, as such, had seen some action.
