First off all sks's are legal in california except chinese ones that take ak47 mags and yugo's that have grenade launchers but you can still get those without the launcher. They have a muzzle break instead. Yugos are c&r but they aren't 50 years old as required by california law. Chinese aren't c&r. Russians are c&r and I'm not sure about romanians. A good place to look for sks's is here : and Also all sks's have to have 10 round non detachable mags in california. Mark

Don't you have a local gunshop or two? Go check em out. Most gun shops in California have a few SKS's to choose from. Pricing ranges widely.

This may seem akward, and it is, but I suggest looking down the barrel to check for rust and deep marks. Make sure you lock the bolt to the rear first not only to verify that its unloaded but also to let some light into the barrel. The cheaper ones are usually cheap for a reason.
