    Not sure if this is allowed, but up for grabs is my 1954 Tula Arsenal Russian SKS fitted to an Olive Drab Tapco Stock.

    Comes with functional Bipod, single 5-20 Tapco Magazine, as well as rail mount hardware and optics as shown in picture. Less than 200 rounds through the barrel, never fired corrosive ammo, always cleaned after use. Willing to throw in some ammo. Must have PAL.

    $550 OBO

    Looks good but are you sure it is 1954?

    No worries, no rush. It just looks for me more contemporary...

    I'll wager the action and core components are 1954, but the stock and furnishings has been replaced with a kit. Restomodded!

    Looks good.
    One secret about Russians rifles!
    When the bore is drilled, the drill is used for 10 rifles.
    The count started from 0 to 9, and it is reflected as the last number on the rifle id, like 3212465485 where the 5 digit is reflecting the drill usage.
    The greatest one will be 4, 5 ending rifle id numbers are the best, 3 and 6 is a good choice too.
    If the rifle id number ending on any other numbers, means that the barrel will not last long in life. 10K rounds at least.

    Not sure about the scope on that thing :)

    https://marstar.ca/dynamic/category.jsp?catid=80524 great with scope.

    I am looking forward to get this one https://marstar.ca/dynamic/category.jsp?catid=76329

    Maybe not clutter his FS thread with other items for sale. SVTs are wonderful, but SKSs are a fun cheap shooter. If you do 'only' get 10,000 rounds through it...that is a lot of range time, for a pretty robust rifle.

    I've personally shot this rifle, one of his 200~ rounds through it, nice rifle, I just don't have room in my collection with a baby on the way.
