Century brought in a batch of Chinese SKS via Albania the end of last year, sold them as C&R. A bunch of wholesalers had them for under $200. They went pretty quick.

Atlantic Firearms still has some, but they doubled the price.

Arms list today has them listed $400-1000. That is just plain bonkers.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

What is the average price for a used Chinese made SKS?

This is an old thread, but if the OP is still on the market for a Chinese SKS, I would suggest an older type 56 model. The Chinese built them using Russian tooling equipment, specs and parts. Their quality is comparable to the Russian SKS original rifles for a fraction of the price.
