I bought my Norinco a couple of years ago for $260. After I left, I felt as if I'd been robbed. Folks were telling me that they knew people buying them for $150. After searching far and wide for those deals, I came to the conclusion that those folks were mostly full of crap. My SKS looked like it came out of the box. The Yugo and Russian models that were parked next to the one I had bought looked as if they had been buried in dirt for the last ten years. And they cost a heck of a lot more. I have since added Tapco furniture. It came with a peephole sight that I'd like to replace, but besides that, I'm tickled pink with this highly reliable rifle. I'm no sniper, so I could never imagine the need to shoot something past 150 yards with it. It is a heck of a lot of fun to shoot.
