I just purchased a Sks and Know nothing about them.
It has MOD. SKSS 7.62x39mm C8A, VA BH VA
Made in China by Norinco
written on the barrel.
It has a wooden stock and a Bayonet on it.
Does anybody know what this is worth. I would rate it's condition at about 98.5 percent.
It has a seven digit serial # with a space in between the second and third number.

good rifle, worth about 150 dollars.

IIRC NO Chineese SKS is listed as a relic - and any with Bayonets are illegal. Remove that bayonet ASAP. Contact the BATF's Tech Branch for more info.

Why would bayonetes be illegal?

Oh, the import ban I got it. Not enough US parts.

More of an "evil feature" problem. The Norincos have detachable magazines, so you can't have a bayonet. Most other SKSes have fixed magazines, so the bayonets are okay, even here in California.

No is a section 922(r) problem as Troy pointed out. Imported rifle are covered under a different (and more strict) set of rules then domestically produced rifles. While a DOMESTIC produced SKS could have a bayonet (and a flash hider). However there is no domestic SKS production, and nobody makes enough US parts for the rifle to be considered 'domestic'. Every wonder why people buy those 'US Parts' for their FALs and AKs - when surplus military parts are cheaper? Is so the rifles will be exempt from 922(r) and only subject to the '94 ban - which means they can use imported magazines AND have a pistol grip. The only exception to the 'bayonet' rule are those rifles listed as a 'Curio/Relic'. The only SKS's I know covered under there are the Russian ones and the Yugo ones (recently imported). Ironically if you have a C&R FFL you can buy a bayonet equiped Yugo SKS from an importer - but you could not buy a neutered Chinees SKS on your FFL. Yet they are pretty much the same rifle - strange but true.

Ah, sorry, I keep getting confused about the status of my Yugo SKS 59/66, which is considered a C&R by the BATF, but not by the California DoJ. Since it's a C&R under Federal law, you can buy them all day long with a bayonet, even here in California. And California allows that only because it has a fixed magazine. Sometimes it's hard for me to remember that a 20-year-old rifle can still be a C&R. Hmm, any minute now this non-AR-15 thread should get locked...
