saw them about 6-8 different tables; most priced 419-429-439. I saw a few that had the promo deal in a different box(so no, the dealers weren't just taking out the holster and mag) the ones w/ the promo pkg (2 tables) were priced $459. It was boxed in a almost clear pkg w/ foam holding everything in place. Mine came in a flat, dark blue plastc case. I was at a table at 3:25 (show closed at 4)when Iheard a guy say "$400" I asked him what he would give me for my sks(that hadn't seen daylight for 10 years) he gave me te $135 I had on the sign, so I bought it .
I had about decided not to get one today - I wasnt sure 40 vs 9 or even fullsize vs sc, and esp. I wanted to see difft sights (only 3 dots today- not even night sights at the show....) but I had the chance to trade something I don't shoot for something I wll, and getting the 40 would mean couple hundred $ setting up the 550. I am satisfied......
Wife says e're going out for a while. I will try to check back here before bed. Question - has anyoneseen other than 3 dots stocked? dealers looked at me funny when I asked about others.......Later......

What type of SKS was it?

If it was a Russian and had all matching numbers and in good shape, you just let a 300 dollar gun go for 135 bucks.

It was a norinco- i bought it like 90 or 91. once you shoot a Garand the sks just isn't any fun. I was told by several dealers that the norinco is more desireable than the yugo sks that are flooding in. I seldom sell a gun, and I have never carried a gun home that I carried in to sell. I got $50 more than I paid for it (about). I still have a russian one in the safe-unfired. It actually feels like a rifle you could use in battle. the norinco was just a cheap inport (jm biased opinion). the norincos(had 2) couldn't even swap triggers- tolerances just lousy ......don't think I'll miss it.

i just got my xd9 sub from the gunshow this past saturday for 389 + tax. the guy had all of the models for the same price. 3, 4, and 5 inch xd9 and xd40's. i called springfield today and got the promo pack. :lol:

theres another one this weekend, and im gonna try to get the xd9 service and try to do the promo for it too. :lol: dont know if theyll send another top end, or if i have to send them the gun, or if they wont do it at all, but its worth a try.
