GB listings for July, 2017 - Albanian
« on: August 13, 2017, 04:01:45 PM »
Here are the Albanian SKS 561s for this month.
  • # sold: 3
  • Lowest Sale Price: $570.00
  • Avg. Sale Price: $765.67
  • Highest Sale Price: $1,036.00
  • As-Issued Avg. Price: $1,036.00
Please let me know any feedback (good or bad) to these.

If you have an objection or observation to add to anything I've listed, by all means call it out.  Let's look at it long and hard (I only look at each listing for a minute or two at most) and maybe everyone can learn a thing or two!  thumb1

-RM

Item Link | Description |# Bids | Final Price | Arsenal Condition | Current Condition | RM's Notes
  • 662145571 | Albanian SKS matching numbers | 26 | $1,036.00  | As-Issued | Good | Nice gun.  Really, really nice gun.
  • 674136984 | ALBANIAN - SKS - CAL. 7.62X39 [MATCHING] | 25 | $691.00  | Uncertain | Fair | Might have been one heck of a deal, w/o better photos it's impossible to tell.  Stock appears to match at least.  10 more detailed photos might have netted the seller another $400.
  • 669743109 | 1969 ALBANIAN SKS All matching | 1 | $570.00  | Uncertain | Uncertain | Again, w/o additional photos, impossible to tell if this was a screaming deal or not.  4 photos just doesn't cut it when you have a nice Albanian anymore.

Good pics and no BS description go a long way!

Agreed. The seller cost himself some money by not showing the basics of what collectors want to see. The hang tag said it was a Matching rifle, too. Buyer probably got a great deal.

The 4 photo thing has always puzzled me. If you're paying the Gunbroker premium, why not sell the rifle? The description was a bit...?

"ALBANIAN SKS Handpicked from AIM surplus years ago. All stamped matching numbers, as pictures show. The mag,trigger guard & stock is not numbered. Remember, these were actual battle rifles.They are not new old stock."

As pictures show? (all four of them?) All matching, except for the Magazine, Trigger Group, and Stock?  Hmmm... ::)  nea1
