I have some sort of pre ban Chinese sks. All orginal. I love it. Fun to shoot and accurate.

I'd say the Russian SKS's are the best but both the Yugo and Chinese are very good and either will be a great rifle to have. It mostly comes down to personal preference which to go for.

I had a Yugo that I made a few mods to. It was a great gun. It was battle accurate and functioned flawlessly (after my mods). I could dump 30 rounds down range pretty quick.
I sold it for a Nice profit during the panick.

I'm jealous. I had an opportunity to shoot a Chinese sks. It was very accurate and a very nice rifle. That is another gun I wouldn't mind having. :o

I really like the looks of the Yugo SKS and have considered getting one. They are heavier than a regular SKS but also supposed to be more accurate.

I personally have owned a Norinco (Chinese) and thought it was a great shooter. However, the stock was very short as it was made for a smaller person. I ended up replacing it, but never had a problem with the weapon itself.

Chinese,

Chrome lined barrel, very accurate, never fails, shoots any type ammo, and most of all FUN!.

My very fist time out at a range I shot a Norinco SKS. I hit a 10" target at 100 yards. I was sitting and the rifle was on a rest as it was kind of heavy for me. Those rifles are great shooters, indeed. It was this trip to the range that made me fall in love with shooting. I mostly shot an Uzi and the SKS. I'm short so the shorter stock was a pretty good fit for me.

I have a pre ban Norinco as well. It is one of my favorite rifles. The only reason its not my favorite rifle is the aesthetics. It could look a little cooler but it is balls accurate and built like a tank. Cheap ammo too. Parts a cheap and its a breeze to completely break down. I cannot comment intelligently on which one is best because mine is the only one I have shot but I absolutely love it.

I like the Norinco I have. There was a Yugo model that didn't have the goofy grenade launcher, M59 I think.
