    I'm wanting to get it especially before Obama gets in there and puts the ban back into effect for good. It's looks really nice. There's just a little bitty spot of rust on the barrel and that's it. Please help I'm gonna need to buy soon cause another guy wants it.

    If it's in good shape, that's a good price. Not a steal, but I'd do it.

    BTW: Those are magazines, not clips.

    A clip is something that loads a magazine (i.e. stripper clips - garand, enfield, mosin nagant etc.)

    A magazine is something like an AR15 mag or AK mag.

    Yep, and the M14 can be loaded/re-loaded via stripper clips without removing the magazine from the rifle.

    Not many people do this, but it is possible :)

    It would be handy to have a pause in a battle and be able to top off a mag real quick without going into the second part of the fight with a half full mag or a half mag in the pouch, but not too many people are faced with this predicament.

    You may find the 30 round mags are not a bonus: Many of the aftermarket mags for the SKS just don't work. I'd sell them and get a stock 10 round internal mag that's loaded with clips in the interest of increased reliability.

    BTW:

    Simple:

    Clips load magazines. Magazines load guns. See? Easy.

    But as to your original topic- You buy that gun yet?

    That's not too horrible a price for the SKS depending on where you are. If it is an arsenal 26 gun, it is one of the better Chinese SKS. Some of them are pretty much actually Ruskies. Have one of the 26s that appears to be mostly Russian parts.

    The 30 round SKS clips are pretty much always worthless junk.

    The 30 round magazines are probably junk. Not "feel cheap" but "won't work" type junk. Does it come with the original 10 round magazine? If so, that's a good price in my area. You can always try to sell those 2 magazines to [strike]some poor fool[/strike] someone. If not, I'd try to price an original magazine and decide if the extra cash and time is worth it.

    If it's an SKS that was set up to take AK mags, on the other hand, $200 would a terrific deal.

    If its a pair of USA steel mags, they should be fine. I have shot a lot of ammo with them and never had an issue what so ever. If I came across a norinco sks for 200 in my area and it wasn't trashed, I would buy it.

    Not trying to hijack but how would one tell which arsenal the SKS came from?

    I bought my first norinco sks for $150.. oh how I so regret ever selling it later.. When I go into the gun stores around my area, the same gun is going for as high as $350, with the polymer stock, and mags. Keep your norinco sks, or you'll regret it like me. $200 is a great deal compared to what I've seen it selling for lately.

    Since everone jumped on the detatchable mag thing, I'll give it a go.

    SO FAR the tapco ones have been building a pretty solid reputation. IF I were to use them(I'm not, an SKS isn't an AK, and was not meant to be.) That would be the ones I'd use.

    Some folks swear by aftermarket detatchables, as they've had nothing but good luck with them. But in reality your odds are 50/50 IME.

    Not to mention you have to be careful about 922 issues when you head that direction.

    True AKs are full-auto, not the neutered ones we get to play with. They were designed as an area effect weapon, were as the SKS was first and foremost a rifle. Aimed fire was expected.

    Both excell at what they do, but they were designed to do different things.

    Simple answer: No, that's a pretty good price nowadays.

    Haven't bought it yet but I'm realy leaning towards it. It's a Norinco SKS with fiberglass stock. and includes two 30rd duckbill magazines. I also, think it comes w/ at least 350 rounds of ammo from what I can tell from the pics. The model though I'm not to sure. He doesn't state it in the listing just that it's a Norinco. Thanks for all the info guys. Any more input always apprec. If i buy it in the mean time i'll let ya know and take some pics.

    Well

    350 rounds of ammo is ~$70 worth. Sounds like a pretty good deal actually

    Lets see here:

    A decent price on a gun: CHECK

    Magazines for gun: CHECK

    Ammo for gun: CHECK

    Not having to register it: PRICELESS
    (if its FTF)

    If you want a mag that works great for an sks get the Tapco 20 round mags, I use them and they work great, no malfunctions ever. I saw they are putting out a 30 round mag now, may have to try them out as well.:)

    No, $200 is not too much. :D

    And yes, both 30rd magazines are EXTREMELY reliable...at least out of the Norinco SKS I'm selling for $200 FTF/$225 shipped in the Louisville, KY area.

    http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=392329

    Both rifle, stock and magazines are pre-94 AWB. The ammo in the pictures doesn't come with it for the $200 FTF/225 shipped price, but I'm a reasonable guy...buy the rifle for asking price and for just $25 more I'll include 200rds (plus $10 shipping if that's required).

    The election is what, 11 days away now?

    Somebody please make this rifle a nice new home...I NEED TO FEED MY 22-250 ADDICTION...
