Is quite desirable.

Very good metal, some dings on the stock (not bad) blade bayonet, matching numbers, force matched stock, and what might be an original sling.

I'm trying to price it, people are telling me $1,500, but there hasn't been one I can find sold online in several years.

(I have a little pile of SKS'S, 18 or so, but I don't really collect them... And I have another russian.)
A correct 1949 Russian will have a spike bayonet; it was likely replaced during refurb; value would depend on condition, original or correct parts, and the matching numbers. Any pics?
