Whats the most a guy would expect to shell out for a 1954 Tula with box, accs and matching # that for as far as he knows is a non refurb? (white bolt)
If we are talking about the same set, then we are talking about K.B.I. imported Soviet SKS. If I understand the situation at the time right, these carbines came in wood crates (same as mosins, AKM, etc.) and then were "repackaged" by K.B.I. I think they were not covered in storage grease since they came from Russian DoD storage.So these rifles that come in the box, have they ever been packed in cosmo?
It is a little high. I think I would pay 400-450 for more rare examples. The regular examples (1952-1954) are worth about 300-350 to me.I have seen the russian ones selling for around 450-500 by me at gun shows. I thought that was high but was not sure
