But, then, I paid $100 for my Norinco SKS back in the day.
Remember when gas was 69 cents a gallon?
The XD would shoot better groups at 100 yards.
Now that's funny right there.
Feeling no love for the SKS in this thread - that's ok, mine brings a smile to my face every time I pull it out of the safe, & evey time I fire it. Friend of mine (ex- Marine) who is damn good with a rifle, liked my SKS and commented on how accurate it was.
If you are patient, you can find an original 10 round fixed mag.. I recommend this. Nearly all of the aftermarket, high-cap mags for an SKS feed poorly.
Re: the trade..
can the other guy sweeten the deal with some ammo?
