The Albanian SKS in 2013

Again in 2013, a low overall volume of Albanian SKS and the relative unknown status of these rifles outside of the dedicated SKS collector market created a wide price range. In 2012, around $400 was a fair trade for an Albanian SKS, and in 2013 this moved up at least a solid $50 on average. The Albanian SKS is on to watch in future years.

The M59, while having a much lower volume than the M59/66 type, continues to bring a small premium over the more common M59/66. As with the Albanian SKS, low volume and the fact that the M59 is unknown to a wide audience shows allows wild swings in price.

The Romanian SKS continues to trail other more well-known types such as the Russian, but showed strong performance towards the end of 2013. A decent Romanian SKS can be brought home for about the same cost as a Yugo M59, but those days may be over soon with Romanian SKS catching up to the Russian SKS.
