Value check on 1958 /26\
« on: November 30, 2021, 12:00:48 PM »
I got this 3M 1958 SKS that came to me missing a couple of parts including the mag. I completed the restore and am curious as to value. It is in a Phenolic stock which is not my area of expertize. My basic question after the value check is, were these imported this way? It is the nicer style stock with the proper blade bayonet.

Some 80s - 90s imports had the jungle stocks.

Not sure about the Albanian imports.

What's the import stamp?

Dang it Boris, I knew you were going to come along and ask me that, LOL. J/K

Here's a pic. it is just like line # 63 on the list of Chinese Type 56 Importers sticky thread, right side of receiver. I assumed it to be an old import and not one of the new Albi ones.

There have been a few Sino-Banian imports seen fresh in grease with the phenolic stocks. It's definitely not widespread though.  I've seen 1 or 2 out of many thousands of imports.  As for old imports (this one with that stamp is definitely a pre-94 import by the way) I honestly do not remember seeing any recorded with phenolic stocks, but that doesn't really mean much because I haven't seen a lot of things!  :P  They very well could exist, and possibly in quantity.

It's a nice gun, those blade stocks with the wrap around rear sling swivel are some of the nicest out there.  The mismatching magazine is pretty minor in that the stock is obviously mismatching as well, but both those certainly put a hard ceiling on the price where collectors are concerned.  I'd guess somewhere in the neighborhood of $400 to possibly even $500 when sold to the right bidder in today's market.

My thoughts as well RM, I just haven't seen very many '58s around and in a Phenolic stock I wasn't sure where it would land. Guess that means, in today's market, I could get $600 for it on GB. rofl dance2

My "E" serial came in a phenolic stock and was import stamped under the barrel (not at home right now).  I, also, don't know if it was imported like that or if it was an add on.  That said, a majority of the "jungle" stocks I've seen have been on older weapons.

I got $635 recently for a 2 mil serial Albanian import, non matching and in a somewhat beat up stock.  It was in above average shape, but yours looks better.
