    So I had an Enfield .303 British and I was wanting something more practical and not as expensive to shoot. I got to looking into SKS's and their affordability to mod. Just so happens I got a call last night from a young fella wanting to know if I'd be interested in trading my Enfield for an SKS. I was happier than a fat kid in a candy store and I went for it.

    Here's what I traded:

    And here's what I got:



    Yes, he gave me case and all. What do you think?

    I'd say it was a fair trade. You both got a $300 gun and both are happy. You probably come out on top with the extra stock. If the Enfield had a scope mount then he came out on top though. Sounds like both parties get to go home happy.

    What year is it? Tula?

    Looks like you got a synthetic stock and a 20 round mag. As long as you're both happy looks pike a fair trade.

    Yugos are gong for $225-$250 around here. Norincos get another $100 at the same shops.

    Looks to be a Chinese, pinned barrel/stamped trigger group/Chu wood stock/
    twist on brake.
    Good trade.

    Junk Man 306--Now, when you get that SKS assembled, we will need a range report on it...With Pix!!

    I agree, both sides happy = good trade.
