[QUOTE="hq357"]

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 clumsy 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!

Fun rifle to go with, I'd like to suggest a Norinco model. They're cheaper in general, being Chinese, but I like them

I'd say Norinco, shot one as far as 200 yards accurately. Haven't tried further

All the SKS makes are made and shoot well. I've got a Russian Tula made SKS and had it almost 20 years got it as soon as I turned 18. You can't go wrong with any of the choices.
