Stick with your SKS for now. Even if you do find a AR and pay $$$$ your not going to find ammo at least until this frenzy calms down. What good is it if you don't have any ammo or mags for it? Not to mention how expensive 223 ammo was anyway and it's not going to get any cheaper anytime soon. a 500rd case of 7.62x39 brown bear ammo has been going up $20 a day on CTD website. You don't even want to know what 223 is going for!
