    What type of SKS I have?

    I am about to dig one of them out and sell it, but I don't know how to tell the different levels of quality, I don't want to underprice it, but I don't want to gouge a potential buyer either... I just would like what is fair for it.

    I haven't looked at it in over 6 years. maybe longer... I know it has a synthetic stock and the detach mag. I don't remember much else at the moment, I plan on pulling it out tomorrow though.

    My Yugo one is stamped on the right side of the barrell just after the end of the stock. I don't know if all manufacturers are the same way though.

    + 1 on www.sksboards.com as I have a Yugo and found out that
    it was made in 1975 and 1 of 40,000 made that year .
    The proof marks and serial number will tell you what you have
    they were made in about 5 or 6 different countries.

    This sucks, I think the one I was planning on selling is a REALLY nice one and the one I won't sell is a put together one from surplus parts...

    oh well... I've never chambered a round in either one so I guess I won't miss it...

    I've had one since 1992 and the other since about 1995-96.
