    It's sad to see the name being used with such dishonest owners. I was buying collectibles from the original owner long before he sold it and since then every new set of owners has gotten worse then the last.

    I am a huge SKS lover and collector and I would pass on these for the $350.00 and defiantly NOT do the hand pick.

    Agreed. Their pictures/grading are normally NOT representative of what they are selling. You'll find a better condition rifle at a better price.

    Wait for one to pop up in the classifieds and jump on it. Or post a WTB.

    Classic's reputation as a fairly shady company is still there. I've heard one description of their SKS rifles as "appears to have been used as a toothpick by a bear".

    I bought a Yugo Tokarev from them last year and maybe I got lucky because the condition is amazing. But after reading reviews of horror stories on the same gun I'll think twice before buying surplus from them again.
