Grrr. I hate this. I have never owned an SKS but I've had many try to call my name over the years. I kept watching the price rise on them along with everything else and finally decided to just do it. Like all of you, I can remember when the prices were just about give away but they are not going to get any lower (at least that was my justification). I bought a Yugo from Classic Arms that was a Serbian Police trade in, in as is condition. It was rated good to very good. Fine. I paid the extra $20 bucks for a hand pick and it was delivered yesterday. I do not think this weapon has ever been issued. It had light cosmoline so a complete disassemble and cleaning and several hours later I had a blemish free weapon with a bright shiny bore. Five patches through the barrel to get one to come out clean. The only spot of rust I can find is on the buckle of the sling! That was a great $20 bucks spent and my hat is off to Classic Arms.
