Type 56 SKS... keeping the value?
I know the type 56 SKS's are a "dime a dozen" (thats .0083 cents by the way). But.. I have one that has all #'s matching, and it needs a better stock to make it a safer useable firearm.
My question here in lyes.. Would the unit be worth more with its matching S.N. beat up stock.. or with the safer, better looking replacement stock?
The reason I ask.. I had the notion of stripping the replacement stock and giving it a "snow pattern" type of grey stain job (medium and light grey stain in no particular pattern). Or would I be killing the value of the better stock?
I plan on keeping the original just because of the S.N.'s
Thanks for any info,
You can't prevent the inevitable.. only alter its time span!
