A Chinese Norinco is a bit cheaper, still works more than great

PAY ATTENTION! I even have to say this?


SKSs are out of production. Prices are rising on SKSs.

ARs are going to drop in value, and pattern parts will, in all

probability, NEVER stop being made.

I was in the exact same position as you! until i realized the sks is just as good if not better, magazines for the ak type rifles are becoming harder to find, some are reliable some are not, the the sks dosent need a magazine it has a 10 round internal magazine that can be loaded by hand or use 10 round stripper clips, stripper clips are also MUCH cheaper 3-4$ a piece they are also alot lighter then the big ol ak mags, you can wear a vest carrying alot more ammo with stripper clips than you would with ak mags just 3 stripper clips in a pouch or pocket would be equivalent to a 30 round ak mag the most ak mags you can probably cary would be 6 or 8 but they are big and clums also the sks is a little more accurate due to its longer barrel there is a couple videos on youtube that made me decide an sks over an ak checkem out!
