i have a chanch to buy a romanian sks with 1959-xxxx,in good to very good, all numbers match except breech block which seems to have a different number on it, for 200.00,should i buy it? thanks eastbank.
I got my Romanian when they were being let in back in the late 1990s in a special deal. They should qualify next year as C&R guns under the regular rules, I think.
Mine isn't even a particularly "nice" example, even after some cleanup, stabilization and replacement of rod and kit, but it's still awesome. I love it, and it shoots far more accurately than I expected it to, as does my Romanian SAR-1. I can't imagine how you could go wrong, the things are built like a brick sh*thouse.
