The Chinese SKS in 2014

The varieties of Chinese SKS have had a small retreat for the more expensive models in early 2014 with prices dropping below the levels of 2013 and what was seen during the panic of late 2012 and the first half of 2013. Overall, varieties of Chinese SKS have remained steady.

2014 Paratrooper SKS

2014 SKS-D

2014 SKS-M


While there are some exciting examples if SKS appearing for the collector, the first half of 2014 mostly held price support established in the later half of 2013. Prices have not fallen and the averaged have remained consistent. It would appear a consolidation is occuring within the SKS market and this is not bad news as this steady trend helps to establish a new "normal" price.
