    Yup. It's an SKS. That takes AK mags. From the factory. Still haven't been able to take it out shooting.

    Wow, cool gun.

    That's like carrying an entire tree around, with a few metal bits on it.

    I got one too, took my first deer with it.

    Unfortunetly now that ammo isn't $89 a 1000, it gets shot a lot less.

    It was my first "Real" Rifle. Love it. It was $149 with 2 5rnd mags and 3 30 rnd mags back in 92? i think.

    Saw one last year for $199 at champion, and hesitated due to my absolute hatred of dealing with or giving $ to Champion arms.

    Still debate that one mentally in my head. IF it had been at just about any other story I wouldn't have thought twice.

    I would have jumped on that, simply for the price. Some things transcend bad service.

    +1. I have an AK with a barrel that's longer than his SKS barrel. :P

    I'm detecting large amounts of jealousy here:P Is this a good time to mention my nearly pristine Russian SKS that is a friggin' tack driver? You all can have your sheet metal guns. I'll stick with good machined steel thank you.

    My "sheet metal" AK will keep shooting long after your SKS catches on fire from all that wood, thankyouverymuch. :P

    Uh huh. How many stories of burning AK handguards have you heard of, compared to flaming SKS handguards?

    Nice purchase Steve. Where'd you get it and how much? I've got one too that I bought a long time ago. You know, I've got 6 AKs but that SKS M is the one that I have next to the bed to grab if I hear something at night. For some reason, it just feels more reliable.

    Bought it from a friend, and for cheap too!

    Yah I like my SKS'. I'm tweaking the stock a bit to make it "fit" a bit nicer. Shaving down the area alongside the handguard so the stock is nearly flus with the handguard, not sticking out 1/4 of an inch on each side... that sort of thing.

    Probably gonna strip the finish and redo it in a walnut stain.

    Actually I don't, but that's ok. I figure if you don't know anything about SKS rifles I should be forgiving. Listening to the ARFCOM folks is a bad way to learn anything.

    I have two, one russian and one old milled chinese with a folding stock. They are accurate(within the limitations of the 762.39) but are heavy old technology. You might as well run around with a M1 grand like my grandpa. When you run out of bullets use as a club.At least in your caseyou will always have a large quanity of wood to to start a survival fire.I would rather grab My AK or one of my AR 15s or of course my favoritesare my FNFALS or my FN STG shortys. The AR platform is real good but my 223 is limited. Thegrendel may make that the ultimate high capacity platform. It is all just personal opinion and what one can afford. Just light-hearted fun here, not looking to make forum enemys.
