SKS on sale at Turners
 
Was just at my local Turners and they said they are 100% sold out of them!!

Colt562 11-10-2012 5:18 PM

there was only 30 per location.

sass2924 11-10-2012 6:47 PM

Go back and tell them to check the stock in the warehouse.

Master Blaster 11-10-2012 7:52 PM

So why doesn't someone call the corporate office to get it cleared up.
Lot of known it alls but not a lot of facts

Master Blaster 11-10-2012 7:54 PM

Wrong section. Sorry everyone

just picked up a chinese sks at the Chino Hills Store. nice condition. smooth action. most importantly, in and out of the store in 20 minutes. A+++ for turner.

Ed_Hazard 11-11-2012 9:58 PM

They should have more in the warehouse by end of day Monday.

ThemBastards 11-12-2012 1:45 PM

The one I saw was supposed to be the best one they had in the store and it was in pretty bad shape. You may not have missed out too badly, I would have bought one too.

beemaze 11-12-2012 3:05 PM

I've read elsewhere these are not Norinco and are classified as Curios and Relics by BATFE. Any truth to this? I have C&R/COE that's why I ask. Not that they will honor 10 day wait exemption as they have before, but worth a try.

Jdrvp01 11-12-2012 6:12 PM

Picked one up last sat in Norwalk. They told me it would come from their warehouse. Luck of the draw I guess.

dshortone 11-13-2012 11:06 AM

The one I saw in store was also in VERY rough shape.

these are not made by norinco but not listed as c&r. it's known chinese sks are not c&r due to lack of manufacturing data.

There's manufacturing data for /26\ (Jianshe) arsenal, at least, for the early SKS made there. These are C&Rs based on date of manufacture.

The one I got is from 1959, for example.

did you buy it from turner's as c&r? where's your manufacturing data come from? is that something batfe will accept?

Che762x39 11-15-2012 2:28 PM

They appeared identical to the Yugoslavian I have. I was hoping for a spike bayonet SKS. Still a great rifle.

Here's a good site for the info: http://www.yooperj.com/SKS-24.htm

I bought mine from J&G as a C&R. These are Century imports, from the same batch as those at Turner's.

Jdrvp01 11-21-2012 11:05 PM

Got mine yesterday and looks like I will be breaking out the simple green for my Thanksgiving day project:)

Mrbroom 11-22-2012 9:53 AM

I picked mine up on Tuesday.. Loaded with cosmoline!!! Cleaned a bunch of it out and took it to LAX Range on Wednesday just to see how she would shoot.. I was impressed.. Now it's time to strip it completley down for restoration.. It's a beater!!

hooked on glock 11-26-2012 3:56 PM

So is Turners getting more of these Chinese sks anytime soon ? I would love to pick a pair of them ....

Where'd you get the 14th ad? Looked online and in my email? No new one out yet.

JAGGUY 12-12-2012 2:02 PM

A lot of people get the Western Outdoor News on Wednesday....

jdmstuff 12-12-2012 9:31 PM

I purchased one last Saturday for $249 at the Norwalk store. They had 5 on the rack.

hooked on glock 12-12-2012 11:24 PM

I'm gonna go get me one tomorrow , hopefully there is a decent one ...

acolytes 12-13-2012 10:50 AM

Those Chinese SKS are listed on this week's flyer again. Why are they listed as "Good" condition? They don't look in too good of condition. I called one of the stores, and the sales guy said they are in pretty bad shape.

Good stands for NRA Good, its nice way of saying its crap :-)

40SWGlock 12-13-2012 4:04 PM

I thought they sold out of all SKS? They get a new shipment in? Maybe they in better shape then the last. Wishful thinking. lol

ham 12-13-2012 10:04 PM

they have sks's in stock

ripperx08 12-13-2012 10:22 PM

Turners in West Covina has a few ... I got one ...

1st2fight 12-13-2012 10:53 PM

they are not collectibles, most of them have very little blueing left, stocks are well worn but good bores...

they are great shooters. it's amazing how they a beating and keep on ticking...

SemperFlexibus 12-16-2012 8:36 AM

FV store has plenty of these rifles. apparently many people had buyer remorse over their condition and cancelled their orders...

I'm also told these latest batches are exported by Vietnamese communist government.

ClickClickPow 12-17-2012 6:32 PM

I called FV Saturday and was told sold out WTF,

techshot 12-17-2012 7:32 PM

The ones in Oxnard look like and feel like crap. The barrels look pitted, I wouldn't buy one for more then 100$.

Capybara 12-17-2012 7:44 PM

There have been quite a few decent ones in this overall batch, but the half dozen I have seen in person were rust buckets so I passed.
