    Russian SKS question

    I noticed gotenda added “this is our final batch of sks rifles”

    Does that mean, final batch ever? Final batch this year or the next while? I need to know to panic buy or not

    There are 10 year old posts on CGN stating that there would be no more SKS to be found... so take that as you will.

    However, 10 years ago I bought a "select grade" Russian SKS for $149.00 too.

    Eventually supply will run out, or at least the price will continue to climb.

    Maybe they’re getting out of the sks game because they’ve taken quite a bit of sh!t for selling duds as hand picked, super grade, etc.

    I've ordered several from tenda now without issue, remember that people who had issues are gonna be more vocal than satisfied customers. Not saying you can't get a lemon, but I don't think it happens as often as people believe.

    very true. Just sucks as a first time buyer if it shows up a lemon

    All I know is I bought a hand-picked one and it's very nice. It was $405 - non-matching stock and magazine.

    So just how big a pile of these things do you expect there is?

    Finite supply meets insatiable demand. Russia was cut off from a lot of its traditional markets after it invaded Crimea, parts of eastern Ukraine, and was implicated in shooting down an airliner.
