mosin.

more reliable accurate rifle and much better round than the wussy 7.62x39

if your going to get something chambered in x39 just get a ak and have done with it.

im not a sks fan.

Another Mosin cause ammo is cheap and they have tons more history than the SKS.

I'd say go for the best of both worlds.

Get a Mosin M44, the Mosin Carbine with the built-in

bayo. A hoot to shoot, it's 8" shorter than the unwieldy

91/30,(still a fine rifle) thunderous, and you can still get

Polish, Russian, and Romanians in mint condition, unfired,

for a small premium, well worth the 75 or 80 extra bucks.

No disrespect, JonM, but I would never saddle anybody with

a crappy AKM, when they could have an SKS, with a milled

receiver, for less.
