I have owned several of both..I sold my AKs when i got my SR556, will keep my current SKS. Its a great utility gun, more accurate, better trigger, no mag to get caught or bent up. Its great for hiking, just slingit across your back, or use it to push/chop heavy brush out of the way. toss it behind the truck seat,etc. Once you get used to the stripper clips, you might like that system..

LOL...Not really, Just just wanted to be with my older brothers all the time when i was a kid. Wanted to go where they were going, do what they were doing. So i ended up a little rough around the edges.... But i clean up pretty good, and can be a girly-girl when i want to......

Depends on what you want. If you get an SKS are you going to pimp it out and put a pistol grip stock on it and high capacity mags, or optics and rails? IF so just go with an AK from the beginning. I wouldn't worry much about bending up a Eastern European steel AK mag (Google: AK 47 push-up). If you want to keep it simple and like teh more streamlined profile of the 10 round fixed mag, go SKS.

Both are rugged. Both are actually capable of good enough accuracy for most folks desires out of a short light 7.62x39 platform.

The well is drying up for SKSs.

AKs are a pattern gun.

Get a good SKS for "less than an AK"

while you still can.


You will always be able to get AKs,

and they will always be cheap.

Cheap? Not anymore, they are in about the same price range as ARs now

Anyway, I've said this before but, too many people try to make an SKS into something it's not.

If you want a tactical rifle go with the AK, if you plan on leaving it pretty much original the SKS is a good choice.

The added accuracy of the SKS isn't worth the extra weight in a tactical application in my opinion but makes a great traditional plinker.
