Default Finally Getting One

After many weeks of hunting, I have found a SKS of my liking. I'm picking it up Saturday, it's a Chinese (probably norinco he didn't say) spike bayonet model. It has the sling, bayonet, and cleaning kit. Not bad for $200? What do yall think?

Yeah best I've seen in a long time, the tough part now is finding a place that isn't out of 7.62x39

My local LGS has a lot of Tula steel cased 7.62x39. I think just walmarts are out of ammo.

Yeah hopefully Walmart has some but my Walmart was completely sold out of .22 and smaller calibers all they had was some .40, .30-06 and .45

Can't go wrong for that price. Although, the Russians never found them satisfactory which is why they adopted the more accurate AK so quickly...

Just feed it plenty of ammo. Keep it clean. And throw a bit of Vodka on it once in awhile so it makes it feel at home.J/K

Everything you will ever want to learn can be found on survivor's sks boards
