I perfect the Chinese sks cause they our chrome lined. A shotgun in 12gau is always a good choice. Seems to me like u just want a gun to have fun with. All of those guns will be a good choice.

7.62x54r isn't going anywhere in surplus supplies. Its still in very wide production for combloc use in medium machineguns. The soviets produce waaaaaaay more than needed and sell us and others older stock. They aren't switching rounds anytime in the distant future.
More ammo makers are producing high quality modern versions of this round the two biggest are hornady and winchester.
