This is the one of the first rifles that I bought. I like the old guns and the ammo is pretty easy to find. And it is fun to shoot.

Nice SKS, my Russian SKS was my first rifle I bought myself wgen I was 18. Still going strong 19 years later.
Very nice SKS. Got my first one in '67, was not that nice. They are fun shooters.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
Sweet shooter! Enjoy!
I've fired a friend's Yugo, and found the grenade launcher acts
somewhat as a counterweight against recoil. Faster to get back on target.
My Russian is more balanced without it, but there's more recoil.
That's a nice stock.
Did the recoil pad come with it?
Hard to go wrong with a SKS. Still kind of cheap, ammo is pretty cheap. Really low recoil for a center fire rifle, and pretty accurate. Other than that they suck

For an old rifle you can hit a paper plate from a 100yd pretty easy.This is one of my coolest guns..
Sooo, ah, is the recoil pad original ?
Unfortunately here in Kalifornia we can't have the Yugo's because they have a grenade launcher..... I'm pretty sure it has never been used in a violent crime..... dang idiotic Kalifornian politicians.
I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.
