What model SKS would be better for hog hunting? A Russian or Chinese model?

Monte Carlo nylon. They run about $60 on eBay all day long. I painted it the O.D Green. It was originally all black. I just masked off the checkered patterns.

Well you did a good job on it! I usually don't like after market stocks for SKS's but that rifle looks pretty badass!

Thank you, appreciate the compliment.

I'd like to add something else to it, just not sure what though. I don't want to go overboard.

If the Norinco and the Russian were the same price, I'll take the Russian every time.

Personally, there is not much of a difference in my opinion. Norinco has the chrome lined barrel. But not having a chrome barrel isn't really a bad thing if you keep up on maintenance. Heck, I'd like to collect an SKS of every variant if I could. The Norinco is just more available and better priced then the rest.

@towboater, why do you prefer the Russian? For my own curiosity.
