    I "accidentally" bought myself a Norinco SKS via Gunbroker yesterday and was just wondering how many SKS owners were also in the Glock owner camp.

    "accidentally" lol. That's my new excuse.

  3. Ditto!! I mean, I don't know what happen. It just followed me home!

    Here is a thread on SKS's:

    I was going to get one last month but car repairs came up and the little I had left over for the SKS buy I got side tracked with more ammo for my glock 21. :D

    From my research they are a nice firearm to have in the collection for the price. An if you all ready have a AK then you wont have to worry about buying another different caliber round. Cause the SKS shoots the 7.62x39 round.

    I shoot an SKS ! Fun gun cheap ammo . Reliable ! Good alternative to a $750 ak47 . IMO . What did you pay for it ? Wood or composite stock ?

    So, it is true... sort of, I have several guns I would like to acquire if I can find them at a really good price. I will bid on several guns at a time assuming that the changes of getting a winning bid are pretty slim based on my low ball number. Last night I got "lucky" (which I put in quotes because I am not really sure if $255 was a good price or not until I get the rifle in my hands and can see if it is as nice as I am hoping).

    this is the auction:

    $255, wood stock, no bayonet but I don't really care. I am just hoping for a gun that is a solid, fun shooter not a collector's item. The pictures looked good enough...

    $255 is a good price depending on what shipping and the xfer are going to tack on . Is it a wood stock ? I have a composite side folder and I added a top rail for an optic but I never used one . I prefer the iron sights

    It has the bayo lug I'm sure , if you wanted , you could find one . So you at $280 . What's the transfer gonna get you for ? Seems like a nice gun to me

    The transfer is $30 so all told I am in it for $318 with the CC fee. It is a little more than I wanted to spend so I am hoping that she is as clean as the pictures make her look.

    Old Chi-com SKS paratrooper (short barrel) put a UTG tri-rail on it awhile back. The factory wood stock was the worst finished stock I've ever seen. Changed to folder in '89 and added 20 round fixed mag.

    Cool. Timbersmith makes some sexy looking wooden replacement stocks for the SKS:

    I like the thumbhole stock and would consider putting one on sometime down the road. Otherwise I don't really want to do much to the gun.

    The gun should be at my LGS on Thursday...

    Mine is wood stock Yugo M59/66A1. Love that rifle. Dead on without doing a single thing to the iron sights. Put a replacement shroud with elevated rail on for a scope, still lets me use the irons.

    I have a 1972 yugo m59/66A1. I think it's the Glock of pre AK rifles. Reliable, accurate & easy to maintain.
  19. Center Balanced Systems makes a nice bullpup conversion kit (no gunsmithing required).

    Halfway down the page:

    At a recent gunshow in Houston, I had my eye on a converted-detachable mag, but at $385 I wasn't so excited.
