Could any of you C&R guys post the prices for the U Fix'ums for the SKS's and t-53s?
Im thinking of ordering some T-53s if they are uber cheap.

Chinese Type 56 SKS Carbine, Cal. 7.62x39mm = $179

Chinese Type 53 Carbine, Cal. 7.62x54R = $499 (price listed for 5)

SOG has Type 53 for $99 each

How does one go about getting them?
It's an SKS, it'll work long after you don't.

Meh, not that great of prices on the T-53s. Was expecting cheaper prices, can just get them from SOG and they'll be in better condition.

You can get them by:

A: getting a C&R and then calling SOG and having them ship to your door. (my favorite option)
B: Call them and have them ship to an FFL that will do transfers for you
C: Ask your FFL to order them for you.
D: Do nothing and always regret that you missed out on such a sweet rifle deal and waste away your golden years pining for the one that got away. (worst option)

That's 5 for $499. I guess they are not selling individually, at least that's how I see it.

To buy them from Century, you need a C&R license & can order direct or have a local gun shop order for you.

considering that the ufixums have parts missing and according to the website may not have servicable stocks, bolts/carriers, recoil springs trigger groups, barrels or magazines then you stand a chance of spending $200 for what is essentially stripped receiver which in the cost of individual parts would run you more than a 100% correct Russian built SKS. unless I saw a Ufixum in a store and knew just what I was getting into I would not buy one online. T53? lots of places get them for that price and they don't require you to buy 5 at a time.

The good condition t-53s are only $130, Fairs are $119, why gamble with a u-fix-em at that price?

I got a type 53 from SOG a week or two back

The stock had a few dings and chips, but no cracks.  The bore was much better than I expected.  One thing about these type 53 carbines, the stocks smell like hell.

what does it have to do with them being from century? century imported these guns. they didn't build them.
