Have you checked the prices of SKSs lately?

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

If you're trying to make an SKS into something it's not,

you deserve what you get.

Many folks believe the hype about SKSs and external mags.

Really, if you want an AK, just get one, instead of trying to

shoehorn an SKS into a role it wasn't designed to fulfill.

Both are good choices. I've been more a fan of AR's than AK's, probable due to the cold war. But when I came upon this SKS the iron curtain fell (in love with it).

There is something about a rifle with a fixed bayonet and grenade launcher that says buy me. It's still C&R and will stay that way (all matching serial numbers).

If you want the 7.62 X 39 round there are many options besides the SKS or AK . You can get a AR upper in that caliber , and I believe Savage makes a bolt gun chambered in 7.62X39 . If you intend on using it to hunt with buy the SKS , tactical / SHTF use AK . I have the AR15 upper in 7.62x39 and its great but I would rather grab my AK over it if the SHTF . I havent ran enough rounds thru the AR upper to call it reliable . when it hits 2000 rds without a hiccup I may change my mind but I know the AK is as reliable as it gets with its simple design anyone could field strip it and put it back together and continue

Better known as a double tap

I hope you enjoy your new firearm. You hear alot of hype about how inaccurate the AK is. Remember its only as accurate as the guy pulling the trigger . It was designed to hit man sized targets in battle not dime sized dots on a piece of paper, however you shouldnt have any problems hitting a paper plate at 200 yards. Its one of the cheapest rifles to shoot and its pretty good out to 200 yards
