I'm new to the board.
Although looking at my first SKS, I've collected other mil surp for 2 years.
I'm interested in a VG Yugo for $325 vs a Chinese for $385. Both with matching numbers.
The Yugo is local, looks very nice.
The Chinese has the typical beat-up stock, but no cracks.
It looks better than most Chinese I've seen, but nothing like the Yugo.
I know the Chinese is more collectible, but I get cold feet when I consider paying ~$400 for a SKS in this condition.
Appreciate any thoughts.
