Default thats Mikhail Kalashnakov not makial kalashnecov


how can Simonov's SKS be a knockoff when it was in service before the Kalashnikov was invented however you are correct in saying the two should not be compared the SKS is more accurate than the AK, the SKS has nice looking all wood stock when the AK has a cheap stamped sheet metal receiver it takes more skill to shoot an SKS because you have to aim at your target instead of spraying lead at it and an SKS is legal for anyone to own when a full auto AK is not, you can hunt with an SKS, see how far they throw you under the jail if you try to hunt anything with an AK parts for an SKS are more abundant and the SKS is more versatile firearm than the AK the SKS can be used as a tactical weapon or a sporting weapon the Ak has only one purpose, Anti Personnel
about the only thing the same between the two firearms is the gas system which Simonov designed.
as far as military service the AK is a more superior firearm than the SKSbut as far as availability to the vast public the SKS is superior over the AK.
I like both equaly just wanted to rattle your chains a little

You both are wrong. Is an sks a more accurate weapon? Yes it is but not by much about 1/2 on my two weapons.
Is the sks harder to shoot than an AK? NO! They both have the same sights both don't have very good triggers. You can Hun with an AK just fine just as long as you use a mag that is legal were you live. The sks was an older design that required far more machining processes than the stamped AK does. The sks is by no means a blight on the ak's future or past and anybody who thinks otherwise is just ignorant. I would I own both and love both so quit crying its kinda strange...

chill out
I beg to differ but an AK is a full auto firearm and is illegal to hunt with period
an AKS OTOH is a semi auto and can hunt with if you have a low capacity mag

Nobody here is crying that is why I used smileys in my post just so people would know I was just fooling around I think the AK was a blight on the SKS future not the other way around since it had a short career in the USSR's armed forces but saw a lot of action in the Vietnam war as well as other conflicts I think I have a pretty good handle on the history of both firearms since they are two of my favorites.
and I do own both and love both, no tears shed on my end

you do bring up a good point both firearms use pretty much the same sighting system I think some of the later ak models have windage adjustment on the rear sight.

A real full auto AK is select fire, they have a semi auto capability, throw some soft points in a ten round mag and hunt away. Plus, 99.9999999999999999% of us with AK's have semi auto AKM variants. Last I heard, there are less than 10 legal AK47's in the U.S. you can hunt with a tommy gun if you want to. And boy would I love to

Original when I bought it 3 years ago of my fathers father who got it from whoever it didn't have any furniture on it so that is new and I have it registered and all the good legal paper work but it's so expensive to shoot
Yes it is full auto BTW

yes it is select fire but still illegal to hunt with, as I stated you can hunt with an AKS which is the semi auto version of the AK but if it is select fire it is illegal to own for most people (Unless you want to pay the 200 dollar BATFE tax and have a background check ran and the the FBI and other law efforcement agencies to have your finger prints on file) let alone legal to hunt with trust me on this I have a few of close relatives employed as ATF agents and deputy Sheriffs. a tommy gun is illegal to hunt with in most states even if it is semi auto due to them shooting 9 mm parabellum and or 45 cal acp if you don't believe me check with your local department of natural resources and see what they tell you concerning the use of these types of firearms for hunting not to mention they are not very practical for hunting
when I am talking about hunting I am talking about large game not squirrels and bunny rabbits
the only exception I could think of would be Louisiana and Texas.
Maybe I should show a pic of my rifles to get this thread back on topic
