Might buy the Yugoslavian variant or the Chinese one most likely the Yugo one. Edit: I found this Yugo SKS http://www.outlawgunsandammo.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3&products_ id=331

As SKS rifles go, the Chinese guns with the milled receivers are the ones I like best. I like the fact that they have chromed bores. The wood is not as nice as the Russians but other than that they seem to hold their own.

I don't like all the extra junk up front on the Yugoslav version. I have seen the gas cutoff move under fire and cut gass off in the middle if shooting which is irritating.


I have seen a few Albanian SKS rifles that were either really nice or just about worn out. These seem fairly rare though.

Nope but I've only had it a few days and shot 60 rounds. It's a Pre ban from what I've been told.

Ah pre ban I'm guessing that's related to the California assault weapons ban? I'm in Ohio the only thing illegal here really is 30+ round mags. And nice I should be able to get one in about 3-4 weeks. So plenty of time to look at them.

I THINK from what I've been told its the Clinton ban that made these no longer importable. .
