    Albanian SKS question

    I try to avoid questions such as this, but as the market has fluctuated these last few years I will pose this question: Is an Albanian SKS worth more "in the grease," or as a specific firearm?

    I've two SKS's, A Yugoslavian M59 and an Albanian, mostly "in the grease." I'd like to clean it up and shoot it, but I don't know. Opinions?

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    We found so many of those in Yugoicon, all nations but mostly local... Every hay stack had a couple cases under it. I don't even see them being worth what people pay now let alone more because it's in the grease...

    The Yugoicon is just a nice rifle. It's been fired. The Albanian, a bit more rare. Maybe I'll just clean it up. I used to have seven, but kept these two.

    Yes, they were well made and beautifully blued. They weren't made for midgets and shot fine. Should be a good useable example.

    An Albanian SKS is going to command good ducats regardless of grease or no. They are rare, PAX

    A "B" or "C" code Yugoicon M59 may be worth good bank too. About the same as an Albain, they're pretty scarce as well. PAX
