    Not bad. May I ask, why didn't you just get an AK-47? Like a WASR-10?

    What's the country of origin of that rifle? I'm wanting to get a SKS (cause I have about 1,400 rounds of 7.62x39 sitting around), but I won't settle on anything but a Yugo.

      Mines Chinese norinco. . Well made and so far runs everything i throw down it. Ak's are over priced. I can get a sks with the same reliability for half the cost of an ak.

        Yeah, problem for me is SKSs are still overpriced also. What did you pay for yours?

          I have a NORINCO SKS as well. Never been fired. It has the star type bayonet and full cleaning kit intact. I even got a few boxes of NORINCO ammo with it.

          I've had it for a few years now, but I think I paid $75 for it.

              Tapco, gross!

              But if you get another, promise you'll keep it in it's wooden stock?

              My buddy just got an Albanian with trench art - it was probably used in the Yugo civil wars. Other than the occasional ZOMG SLAMFIRE it's a beauty.

                Slam fire means a crudded up firing pin
                Either get the spring loaded pin or dis assemble the assembly and give it a good cleaning

                  I'm not a gun owner but I can appreciate the weapon.

                  It's hard to believe that is the same weapon. You painted it obviously, modified the butt end heavily, added a front handle and added optics. Anything else a noob would miss?

                  Is it a special paint?

                  Impressive...

                    It's actually a different stock. Polymer stock and mags. It's my hunting/SHTF weapon.

                    I hate stripper clips skud....... And I Firmly believe any good weapon gets better with drop mags. :)

                      Better that a Norinco SKS has Tapco stuff on it than a Russian or Eastern European SKS.

                          Little update. Added a utg quad rail to give it a little more versatility.
