    How feasible do you all think it would be to trade off my Yugo SKS (Very good condition) for a 7.62.39 Saiga?

    Just checking the water temp before tossing it out there.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Scottie,
    Normally I would agree, & I like my SKS, but it's complicated.
    This is however the type of input I asked for.
    Thanks

    I swapped my Saiga in x39 a couple years ago for an SKS...and $400.

    Just curious...what do you find complicated about the SKS?

    No worries. The SKS is no problem. The reason for possibly wanting to trade it off is complicated. Call it a love hate relationship. I like the gun but I'm not crazy about it.

    Will probably just keep it and add the Saiga later. The Yugo makes a pretty good club.

    Maybe keep the SKS as a back up or "buddy rifle" for the Saiga? IMHO, the SKS has more value than you'd get from a trade (you'd have to kick in some cash).

    Agreed. Was looking at consignment, trade just rolls off the tongue easier. Decent Yugo's are selling for $450 on the used rack IF there is one. Store takes 10% on consignment. Should be able to clear at least high 3's to 400

    I'll keep it for a while.

    Thanks all for feedback loop

    Hard to say. My Saiga is a .223. It's AK like simple, but I don't seem to have any problems with my Yugo SKS, either.

    There is a Saiga at Fleet Farm where I am now that is $469 I believe. Standard rifle stock and not pistol grip with 10rnd mag. Keep the SKS.

    I love my Yugo and would never want to get rid of it, but if it ever magically gets to the point that I can trade it even-up for a Dragonov, it is gone. Short of that, you'd have a hard time parting me from it (Maybe a PSL?).
