So aparently SKS's have dried up in the central valley. I found 3 within my area code. $300, $400, and $600. I'd never spend that much for an sks, cause it's just gonna be my canvas. The one for $300 has been in a connex since 1978 in arizona and is sealed with so much ephing cozmoline (sp?) that i couldn't even get the bolt open and i'd have to replace the stock. FUCK YOU CALIFORNIA!
