not really true anymore Kraigwy,
there are 8 full pages of listings on gunbroker right now for SKS and many are going for around $300, I picked my SKS up at the height of the panic for $239 and the same shop still has them at the same price. I would like to be able to find a garand for that but I highly doubt it's going to happen.
