I already had a 79$ Chinese SKS from a few years before… but this was the first Russian one I had seen.

239$ seemed steep - but I jumped anyway.

I would’ve paid that much back then but I was 7 years old.

Not really. Taking inflation into account, he about doubled his money over 27 years. The S&P 500 through the same time would have been $4,118 from his investment. Could have 5 Russian SKS for that.

I know that I paid $99 for my NIB Norinco,  but I seem to recall Russian sks's for the same price at one point.
