  1. Military Weapons Forum
    Been a handgun guy for a while now. Recently decided to get a good, inexpensive general purpose survival type rifle. While I would love a Colt AR-15 or Ruger Mini 14/30, I am more in the AK or SKS price range right now. I am familar with both but leaing towards the SKS. Outside of the 10 shot...

    I have an old beater SKS that had some rust pitting on the end of the barrel. I put some locktite naval jelly on those spots and it cleared the rust spots and pitting up really nice but it wiped the blue off clean as a whistle. That was not my original goal. Then I thought "Well it's screwed...

    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?

    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?

    Do you think an SKS would suffice as a primary SHTF weapon? Right now I have a Rugar p95 9mm pistol,a rugar 10-22 and a Maverick 88 12gauge. The price tag on the SKS is appealing at $239. Or should I hold out for an AK or m16?
