Any more reports on the Albanian SKS?

I am considering getting a Grade 1 from AIM. Should I get it now or wait for the eventual price drop (assuming there will be one). I already have a Yugo SKS.

For the price of the Albanian SKS, I can get a "like new" Finn M-39 Sneak, and a G-VG M-39 B barrel. But wait, I already have a "like new" B barrel!

I'm so confused, what should I get next? :confused:

Looked at 5 at my favorite store yesterday. They were the vg-exc. In my opinion they were slightlyabove vg. All were 1977 78 years. They had typical storage wear and beautiful bores. Definettly different looking.

HTH, and they were AIM rifles.

Thanks Sumoj275, your input helps.

I want to jump on one, but I get leary when you see "Rare" or "The Rarest of Rare", "Get them before they are all gone" then you see them getting sold at blow out prices 6 months later.

At least, IMO the Finn M-39 prices are stabilized.
