"UNFIRED 1965 Israeli capture"

Was going to post in Auctions but figured this is more for discussion than sales. Gurus, mavens & experts - your input is requested. What could I be missing?  chuckles1

Definitely one of em. Funny timing as I just posted a new IC post. I wouldn’t say it’s “unfired” though for multiple reasons, but primarily because the blued carrier / laminate stock combo was most likely a refurb process

Wow, she's a beauty!  I love seeing a Chinese in a Russian stock for some reason.  I'm with Worm on the "unfired" ridiculousness, and I'm not sure where the seller got the "50k were captured" numbers, but it's a great looking gun and if you paid a bit less than what they were asking you did pretty well in my book.  thumb1

Out of curiosity, is the stock cut to accommodate both blade and spike bayonets?

$600 is a phenomenal deal.

Hell no! The guy had one pic posted (kinda fuzzy & standing on end), asked him for more, these showed up with a note saying that the rifle "has never been taken apart" and he wants to "keep it that way" so please don't ask for internal pics. No problemo, not on my shopping list.

That would be the deal sealer.

I have one like that, in the 12 million range, blued bolt, double cut bayo slot, but with a closer matching HG. Those Russian laminate stocks are nice.
It was my first SKS actually, $70 bucks, single shot. The  gas piston was stuck in the tube.

That's the right price, imo. If you can get him down to this, I'd buy.

Owner replied that it's cut for the bayonet shown. Not both ways.

This one was on Armslist. I didn't get it. The Seller wouldn't get off of $600. Not worth it to me.

It's stiff at $600 (to me) but it did come with couple hunnerd rounds of ammo. The seller said OBO, were you stuck at $500 too?
There's not that many of them to be picking through. That was a nice specimen and the seller knew what he had. I think martin08 paid $450 several years ago for his last laminate IC acquisition. PAX

Help me out here guys. Is the receiver 'black', as in a refurb BBQ paint black? Looks like it to me, or, just cosmo?
