As a recent SKS owner, I'm really enjoying the rifle!!!
- the way they operate
- takedown / re-assembly
- inexpensive, easily sourced ammo
- one of the coolest looking battle rifles IMO
My SKS was an unfired Norinco Paratrooper and I paid $319. Wanted a Russian but their prices have gone out of sight.
Ex - Navy, Persian Gulf Veteran. Loved shooting the M14, 1911, M60, M2
