If I'm not mistaken the mil requirement is 4MOA. If 4MOA is good enough to get the job done it's my opinion that your >2MOA comment is ridiculous considering the role of the SKS.

"my deal" with soviet guns is I can't for the life of me figure why people love them so much, and on the same note why people think benchrest or accurate shooting is the devils work. Call me crazy, I'd rather have a rifle that can hit what I'm aiming at every time. I dont care if the ammo is cheap on commie guns, I don't want corrosive, unreloadable, steel case junk. I don't see the fascination, love and cult like following the Sks, AK or mosin have. Once again, don't care if they are cheap. There are many better options out there.
I read many forums on here, I hear the accuracy of such rifles, hitting a 14 inch gong at 2-300 some of the time qualifies as a junk gun in my book. Once again have some pride in your purchase.

The AK, for example, is, generally, a stamped receiver. The SKS has a milled

receiver, and a longer sight radius. I'm given to understand it's a scaled-

down version of the Russian PTRS-41, a .57 cal tank-buster.

My "junk" SKSs are two of my favorite guns. Dependable, accurate,

and fun.

Yanno, 7mmstw, I don't know who or what pulled your chain,

but I don't see any of us posting negative comments about

your favorite guns. Till I met you, I never met a

"champion competition shooter" who went out of his way

to put down anyone else's equipment, either.

So, once again, buh-bye, now, and please forget to write...

The poster for this thread asked for our take on the Sks, because my opinion is different then yours I'm the A-hole. What crap. The cult like following you people have for such rifles is pathetic. I'm sure you like it as much as your hi point pistol and corrosive ammo.

First off, they are no where near being "junk guns". As a good friend of mine put it, Russian guns just work. They will not break down, they will eat anything you put in them, and their accuracy is good enough for what we want them for. We want them for the same reason we would want a .22. They are cheap to shoot, and are fun to shoot. What other reason then that do we need? We like them, so we buy them. That will not change no matter how much you call them junk.
Do us all a favor and stick to talking about your benchrest guns. We don't go around saying bad stuff about your rifles, so please don't say bad stuff about our rifles. Have a nice day.

Yanno, this is a forums section for people who like SKSs

and AKMs...


OP, certain individuals here feel the need to broadcast their

ire over our enjoyment of substantially built, historically

significant military surplus rifles. They apparently feel

that if a rifle could talk, all it should be able to say is:

"Prior to assembly a short time ago, my parts sat around different shops

and warehouses for a few weeks or months, and had no influence

on history or world events." Please don't allow their

arrogance and bitterness to detract from your thread.


If you knew anything about Hi-Point, besides what you saw on

the internet somewhere, you'd realize their customer service is,

hands down, among the best in the business. Furthermore, their

new carbine models are making inroads against other name brands

costing three times as much. Chew on this for a minute; if it weren't

for us "poor folk" and "cheap people" with the "junk", you'd never

have a way to rate your firearms as so much better. Now go have a cookie.

OH, wait, I'm sorry Sir, are you yet another frustrated, coffee sodden

RSO who's dreadfully afraid somebody's going to enjoy themselves shooting

today? My condolences...

Guy asked for an opinion on the gun, I'm the only one not praising it likes its a god. You don't like it because it hurt your feelings, saddened that someone would talk ill of your commie gun. Tough cookies, if everyone listened to every thing you said and didn't hear a difference of opinion we would all be stuck with crap guns like that.

In case you didn't notice,(guess not) a lot of people don't like

"commie" guns. But nah, it's a free country, it won't hurt my feelings no matter

how much of an idiot you make of yourself. Enjoy...

You know what, it's two completely different worlds. We like old, historic guns. You like modern, high dollar rifles. Lets agree to disagree, and leave it at that.
