Default Chinese SKS @ Turners $399.98

Get them while you can. The ad says you can order online and pick up at the store.

I would probably order from Classic and pay the $40 transfer fee and the shipping so I'd get the spiker bayonet

Turners continuing their FUD about a Chicom SKS with spiked is a CA assault weapon? just as they did with me years ago trying to do a ppt at the Corona store.

just realized this had no bayonet on the picture. Is this worth it? I'm very close to getting this over at classic firearms.

I've seen some in the unboxings at classic firearms that they have some English names on them. What possible countries do these derive from? I saw that it could be Albania. Did anyone own post vietnam war era? Or all these not going to be from that area and mixed with some russian models?

Saw the photo they posted on their site; it said it was exemplary of those available. Really rough, no bayo. Will pass. I would rather put the $399 toward a much better/cleaner/nicer example I can likely pick up for $425 from numerous sources.

Yeah, and I kicked myself because a few months before I saw them for $159 and though it wasn’t worth it!

Same feeling when I look back at those refurbed/as-new Savage SMLE’s I passed on because $199 was astronomical!

This is like the batch Turners sold a few years ago for 2 something. Rough but very early 55-56. Some sino soviet.I had two and they functioned perfectly. Machined parts , no stamping.Came from Albania. Worth the price any day.

Uh...no, but I remember when Turner's was selling these like new refurb Russian SKS rifles for $129.99 (140.07 with tax)...no DROS, with the sling, ammo pouch, round cleaning kit, oiler and stripper clip in the box.

It was in 1995.



Seeing what Turner's is retailing today when compared with other times is kind of sad.

The picture of the above SKS from Turners reminds me when at the Great Western show in 97 or 8 they had racks of these for 99.00. Yes they also had racks of SVT40s for 199, and SMLE's for 89.00. Those were the only rifles they had, and the rest of the stuff was ammo, mags, and some accessories. In those days you could walk with those so no need to repack the truck at the end. And yes, they didn't sell out! B&B from Westminster had them for $89.00 andk then B&E from Cypress, not to be undone put their's for $87. Those were the days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember those days well! There didn't seem to be a public rush to buy them either in the store as far as my experience was. For some of them, just walk up and take your time to pick one out from a rack on the general merchandise floor.

I still regret not buying a SAFN FN 49 from a rack of them I saw at B&E during those days.

I did get a SVT 40, a Russian capture K98 Mauser, US Model of 1917 , Mosin Nagant M44, and several Lee Enfield No 4s along with a couple of other SKS rifles from local dealers during those days.

So 20 years from now there will be a thread where someone says.

"It was in 2019. Turner's still sold guns."

I bought a lot of great milsurps at Turners in the day. The sold Mausers of all types, Mas 49/56's, and yes even back then the French surplus was 10, a box! They even used to have Luger's, P38's, Hi Powers, all stuff from Century who was one of their main suppliers. Norinco 223 for 10c a round, and the AK ammo for around the same price.

I cannot confirm this, but I heard somewhere that actual guns used to be offered for sale at gun shows.

They do now. I think before 2000 here in CA you could walk with them. You only had to do the yellow 4473 back then if you bought them at a gun store. If you bought from an individual you just walked with them,

I guess the crime rate went way down after those days were over ?

The West Covina Turner’s used to be on Francisquito, west of Hacienda blvd. I vividly recall the location and went in there every chance I could. I was too young to buy guns but I liked looking at the Colt HBAR sporters, IMI Uzi’s, and Chinese AK’s. The HK P7’s were the hot new pistol and everyone was arguing about the 686 vs the GP100. The 3rd Gen S&W autoloaders were also hot stuff. I wanted a 645 because Sonny Crockett carried one, but $600 might as well have been $6000. Pallets of Norinco ammo too, all the time.

Finally was able to buy my first self owned handgun in 1993. It was all about the wondernines. Took home a Ruger P89DC, and with 15 round magazines to boot! I shot the snot out of it, and to this day I still do and it has never malfunctioned. Clunky looking, long and mushy trigger, lousy sights, but an absolute tank.

I remember that store. I went to high school in WC. That Turners was in the shopping center at Sunset and Francisquito. That shopping center also had the world famous Bahooka restaurant.
Anyway, I don't know why but I bought a Winchester Model 70 in .338 Win Mag there for $299. I never shot it and sold it for $300. That is the only gun I ever sold.

I remember the pallets of Norinco ammunition at Turner.s.

I still have some of that $1.99 Norinco .223 ammo from those days:



The 7.62 x 39 Norinco stuff i had in the silver boxes is long gone. You can still find guys selling that Norinco ammo on the web, but maybe not for 2.00 a box.

I also have a 200 round 7.62 x 51 NATO battle pack left from those days and several 500 round 22lr bricks purchased for 10.00 dollars or under. Turner's use to put the bricks on sell around Christmas time.

I took the same path back then and bought a stainless steel Ruger KP85. It was a big pistol, the grip a bit bulkly for my hand. Very easy to field strip. I latter sold it when I got a Beretta 92FS which seem to fit my hand better.

Also went through the 686 vs GP100 .357 argument in my mind back then and ended up buying a Ruger GP141.

I'm retro-reminiscing definitely about that period of time. Strange, but for most of the following decade and a half after the 1990's, I was largely out of the firearms scene. When my interest finally came back around about 5 years ago, things had definitely changed.
