Yes, JG, AIM, Grabagun and Centerfire are also out now. Classic was the last, except that Buds still has some (at $299!):

Phew!

Mine arrived yesterday (hand select). Dripping with cosmo in front of the fireplace. Great blueing, stock beat up but no cracks, will post pics in a few.

Showed the wife pics of black rifled SKSs using Tapco's T6 stock, now she wants one. I guess I'll see if Century still has some of those "top of the pile" SKS project rifles left.

That's when you know you married the right woman!

My wife, surprisingly, was very understanding about my recent purchases. There is something charismatic about the SKS.

I figured the SKS bonanza wouldn't last. I bought 8 of them and I'm keeping 5.

$307 shipped for the hand select & matching. All were rough out of the box but cleaned up nicely.

They are all coming from the same place. I doubt Turners or J&G or Classic has the "good ones". Unless you get one off the shelf from Turners and get to inspect it, it is a roll of the dice whoever you buy from. Most of the Turner buys are leaps of faith as well since they are prepaid and then brought in after the fact to the customer.

At least Pasadena and Reseda stores have some in stock, you can inspect them before doing the paperwork. I checked one at each stores and they were in much better condition.
