has anyone bought a paratrooper lately? i use to see them all the time at the gun show now i don't hardly see them. went to the gun show the other day and i seen 3 paratrooper's one was rusted all to crap and they wanted 400.00 dollars for it and the other one they wanted 450.00 for it. i found one for 225.00 and jumped all over it. i have not had time to look real good to see what kind it is it's not a norinco but it is chinese made in pretty good shape. what are some of the prices you guy's have seen on the paratrooper's lately. as soon as i get time i will let you guy's no what kind i have i think all it say's is chinese sks and the importer's name gcb or something.
Ive got 2, one that takes the AK mag, and a regular para. Prices have went up to ripoff prices. I picked up my par AK mag type a couple of months ago...new unfired.....$300. Others wanted $450-$500 which is a rip off. Anything at $300 down is good for today. Also be aware that Navy Arms imported SKS paras were recalled....very bad rifle barrels and inferior parts. The factory in China that made them just turned out really bad stuff. Most should be made by Norinco. Navy Arms were the only guns recalled and most stayed here in country....DONT BUY ONE.
all right it say's 7.62x39 sks made in china GBE HB CA. the serial # is 0184 big space 24103. with 24103 stamped on the stock and bolt. does anybody have any info on this sks. it looks like a good made sks. thanks again for any help
I have two of the 16" with bayo types that are often referred to as 'Paratroopers', is that what you mean? They are both Norinco.
A while back I sold a 16" MC-5d which took AK mags. It was cool, I wish I still had one.
