My issue with these are they are an inferior failure.  I wont be shooting one.

That's a lot-o-bread, to just have it sit in a safe.

I paid $391 for my cast receiver 2 years ago, which at the time wasn't even a premium over a good matching Type 56. Granted, the listing was merely titled "Unusual Chinese SKS" so it probably wasn't clear to many observers that it was a cast receiver or that it was of special interest. Casts aren't quite as rare but are in the same category as the stamped receivers, a peculiar experimental variant that didn't pan out. 

I do think the stamped receivers are interesting, but I'm not willing to pay 2.5x the current value of an equal condition Type 56. I might go 1.25x, or maybe 1.5x...definitely okay with never getting one too rofl

For some people rare automatically equates to $$.  If I was getting an SKS that I couldnít shoot, Iíd go with a parade rifle. At least they look nice.  rofl

Looks like no one thought it was worth the doe at that price.  I wouldnt mind one for 600.00.

He relisted it a couple of times at that price, but no buyers.  ::)

In today's environment, he's not getting that price.

In fact, the golden age of surplus firearms prices shooting to the moon may take a bit of a hiatus if the stock market truly is the 6 to 12 month ahead predictor that many consider it to be.
