Thread: Is SKS Junj

  1. We had a gun show today also. I was looking for a cheap SKS but there were none to be found. I asked around the show for any AR10's and most of the dealers laughed at me. There were plenty of AR15's in the $1300 - $1500 range. I ended up stopping by the dealer that had the AR10 that I've had my eye on and it ended up following me home. I've pretty much blown my gun budget for a little while now and I still need a holographic site and/or a scope for the AR10.

    Congrats on the AR10. Gun porn is a good thing (hint, hint).

    It still needs a site/scope. I'll post photos when it's done.

    I've had my eye on a yugoslavian sks with grenade launcher. looks like fun. they have a few in some local stores in the area. I've got an AK and from what I understand the barrel of the sks is longer so it's more accurate. sounds good to me.
    You can have my freedom as soon as I'm done with it!!!

    I went back to the gun show Sunday and picked up an SKS M Short barrel with a nice Monte Carlo stock that used AK47 mags. Sweet little rifle. Price was sweet also, $230. I picked up 500 rds of Silver bear for $125 on Sat and on Sunday he had 1000 rd cases of Wolf HP for $250. I should be fine for a while with the ammo I bought and with what I had on hand.

The SKS prototype was tested in 1945, against the Germans in WW2, and officially adopted in 1949. They are still in use as ceremonial weapons.

    There are after market stocks available for the SKS to make it resemble an AK-47. Also, you can take off the integral box mag, and use detachable mags. So an SKS could be made to resemble an AK-47, but they are two different firearms.
    the sks was based on a scaled down anti-tank rifle!
