I like the SKS, but if you are only getting one, make it an AK
I disagree. I have jhad both and I had more fun shooting my tricked out SKS than I did the clunky AK and it's god-awful 30 round magazine. I'm sorry, but after ten rounds I want a chance for a breather.
My SKS is now an unfinished project, with a Belarus receiver mount integrated onto the side of the rifle the way the Serbian SKS snipers were made

Picture page and research information on my Yugo M48 Sniper rifle used during the war in Bosnia.
I also have a soviet PU scope mount that the Serbs also used on the SKS
Plus a bipod
It was a grand project which is abandoned because I have no place to shoot
The SKS (a chicom) is now for sale $200 with accys. face to face in Central Florida
