I'm not sure of the regulations in your area, but in MS, the SKS will allow for a lot of options in terms of configuration. You will of course have to mind the feds' 922 regulations if you start reconfiguring an SKS; basically if you make changes, you will probably need to replace some foreign-made parts with U.S.-made parts. Tapco sells a "compliance kit", might be good to look it over if you are planning changes: TAPCO - Section 922r Compliance TAPCO® INTRAFUSE®

My SKS is sitting in a tapco collapsing stock with some tapco internal parts and magazines presently, but it performs well in the other stock as well. Many people STRONGLY prefer the original, tried-and-true, configuration.

The mini is a good gun i personally like the 30 7.62x39, My sks gets better grouping then the 30 i used to have. That said their r alot of goodies out there nowdays for the Ruger. A little more $, but good choice.

I have a hi point 995 and while I have not shot a ton of rounds I have disassembled it and it is not made cheap. Every review I have seen on the carbine is good.

The hi point pistol did have some mag problems but I think those have been worked out but the damage to the rep is already done.


I say you can't go wrong with the hi point carbine for less than $300. But if you can get a SKS or AR you will be happy with it also.
