Nice looking SKS!

FYI, in the thick brush down here, the SKS was the budget deer gun for many years for many rednecks, just gotta use "soft point" ammo.

There is an interesting accessory for the grenade launcher thingy: Golf Ball Launchers Maybe good for some less-than-lethal pest control.

I like my SKSs, and was looking forward to a Mini-30,till I

handled one. The LOP was dismally short, and IMO, the sights

are total crap. I don't think a Mini-30 compares to a

decent SKS, even with the stock ten round mag.

I've got a Russian cold war, and a Norinco

with a paratrooper synth stock, and they both

perform flawlessly, and shoot Minute-Of-Frisbee

with iron sights, shoulder-fired at 100 yards.

You made the right choice. You can shoot any steel cased foriegn ammo for cheap. Ive heard many times of light primer strikes from the mini 30, and that it only really likes us made brass ammo.

I did alot of looking on the mini before I bought my saiga x39, and thats why I went with the saiga. I love my ruger 9mms, but I didnt think I could count on the mini30.

Have fun with the sks.

Dont want to hijack this thread.. but rather then starting a new one for a simple question ill just ask here.

Have any of you guys used or currently use the recoil buffer? Does it actually work or is it not worth getting?

I used one on my saiga x39, before I converted it. For doing away with carrier slap, it works. For reducing recoil, it doesnt do much. It would do the same on an sks.

I didnt need it after my conversion, my new (higher profiled) hammer provided enough resistance that it did away with the carrier slap on its own.

If you get one, get the Blackjack. Recoil buffers are very prone to breaking, and black jack will replace it for free.

It did NOT work for me. The recoil buffer sounded like a good idea so I got one and put it in. All it did was keep the bolt from staying open after the last round was fired. In retrospect, I wish that I saved the money and put it elsewhere. My SKS is a Yugo, by the way.
