    I bought an SKS today. Dont know tons about them but it was beautiful so I decided to buy it. Came with the original magazine, a 5 round magazine, and two 10 rounds magazines. I was reading an apparently to get them to take larger magazines you have to do some modifications? Any SKS Guru's...

    Assuming 922r was flushed down the toilet where it belongs... Would you prefer an AK47 or SKS with pistol grip and hi-cap magazine? Why?

    My Father-in-law recently gave me an SKS, but I'm entirely new to gun ownership. What are some things every gun/SKS owner should have? I've gotten a sling, a broken shell extractor, and a bunch of stripper clips. I'm in the US Army, so I have a bunch of cleaning supplies and tools suitable for...

    I have the opportunity to purchase a n.i.b. Commercial Norinco sks. I want a 7.62x39 rifle but i would worry about ruining a rifle that has survived 30 years without being fired. Is the norinco sks worth keeping in mint condition? Should i use it or save it and buy another?

    Ok, so I'm looking to get a rifle that isn't hella' expensive to shoot, and 7.62x39 is cheaper than .308... could be cheaper but what are you gonna do. Anyway, the dealer near me has a Chinese SKS for $375, and I was wondering if this is good, bad, decent, etc. I haven't seen the rifle yet...

    I have been debating between the SKS, Mosin Nagant, Enfield, and Mauser. I have made my choice. I'm getting the SKS. My decision came down to several factors, but the primary one is the availability of ammunition. I like the 7.62x39 because it is used in the SKS and the AK-47 (which not too...

    If you were going to pick a .30 caliber rifle for a SHTF situation, which one would it be? The contestants are: 7.62×39, 30-30, 308 and the 30-06. Lets take a look at each of those calibers, and what rifles their currently available in. For the sake of discussion, the 30-06 is the largest...

    A lot of what I read on here says to keep the original 10 round factory magazine on the SKS and use stripper clips to load. The SKS in question has a 20 round magazine which is not removable. So is this an orginal factory made magazine? Can I still use stripper clips to load it? Would you...

    One of the most asked questions I see on the forum - "what is the best survival rifle?" A well balanced answer is, there is no perfect rifle. If you live in Alaska, your rifle needs are going to be a lot different then someone that lives in the Southern states. Its doubtful someone living in...

    Here is the hypothetical sceneario. A person owns an SKS. The kind that accepts AK mags. Is thinking of buying an AK. Is the AK that much better of a rifle to warrant twice or more the cost? Or do you think it would be better to buy another two SKS's? Or one SKS and more ammo?
