The Thompson subgun probably doesn't hold 1 MOA or anything close to it, but i don't think anybody would say it isn't a "good" firearm. Just because the SKS and the Mosin aren't as accurate or "tight" as a M1 Garand doesn't mean they aren't successful. If the M1 Garand and my Norinco SKS were the same price and equally available and equally cheap to feed, which they aren't, i would've still bought my SKS for the purposes i use it for.

You don't need a corvette to make a grocery run.

I was shooting a friend of mines Yugo the other day,

and what impressed me was the weight of the grenade

launcher on the front end actually helped keep the muzzle down,

making it easier to re-acquire the target quickly. The overall balance is

way off, compared to a Russian, but the results at the range were almost

surprising. Up to now, my attitude has been "If you don't have grenades for the Yugo

grenade launcher what's the point?". So if you get a chance to shoot a Yugo, check it out.


Yo, 7, we don't bug you about your gun's costs, lack of history,

lack of sustainable firepower, or overall uselessness without

about 800 pounds of crap which you'd never be able to bring into the

field, do we, grump-waffle? Here's a little-known secret that's

apparently been hidden away from you in a book somewhere;

CBM IS CONSIDERABLY LARGER THAN SUB-MOA

so go back to your bolt-action threads, and piss off,

we really don't GAF what you think.

God, I'd hate to see the way that Nazi would raise children.

"Stop enjoying that 89 cent frisbee! YOU MUST play with

the EXPENSIVE toys! WHERE did you get those crayons?

I GAVE YOU PASTELS! You'll NEVER have fun with garbage

crayolas!" That's if any woman would ever put up with his BS

for the nine minutes it takes to reproduce...

Look, buddy, we don't pester you in your threads, so why don't you

just return to plinking at nickels?

But you just turned your Mausers into modern rifles... The reason I like to collect military rifles is because there so different from each other..
A Mauser looks nothing like a Arisaka, looks nothing like a '03, looks nothing like a SKS, looks nothing like a M1, ETC... Your Mauser just looks like any other sporting rifle..

I find it interesting on how the military rifle evolved.. They went from being 5 feet long, wood stocks almost to the muzzle, iron sights that went to 2,500 yds/meters and Bayonets that were short swords, and over the years as military doctrine changed so did the rifle.. They became shorter and lighter, the bayonets just became knifes, and the cartridges became smaller as the distances became shorter..

I dont care if I can shoot a group smaller than the bullet im shooting, I like the history behind the rifle... I dont buy them just because there "cheap" (many of them arent)..

If Ruskie guns are so crappy.. How did poor illiterate solders hit targets at 800 yds with a crappy rifle and a 2.5x scope??

I would love a Garand.. but the only one I want the CMP doesnt carry..

As for the SKS, although its my least accurate rifle, it was my very first gun ive ever owned and shot, so it will probably always be my favorite...

$500 cmp garand is a box of parts thrown together, .30-06 is expensive, even if you reload.

Wartime Mausers and Wartime Mosins have about the same accuracy, with the mosin being three hundred dollars cheaper, so what if the ammo is corrosive, it doesnt bother me to clean and oil my guns, i do it after I shoot, everytime I shoot. Sks in my opinion is a great rifle, they are reliable and fun to shoot, plus its bullets per dollar, not dollars per bullet.

Russians weapons are not crappy, I had dinner with a US Marine tonight and all he did was compliment them. Our soldiers were and are not illiterate. I'm ex-Spetsnaz for Christ sake and I can construct a sentence and speak English very fluently. Do not underestimate a firearm all because it's simplistic, or "ugly" some of the most simplistic firearms have been around for the longest time. In my opinion the US should've kept the 30-06 and other 30 caliber rifles it was using in the Vietnam, Korea, and WWII eras. The weapons back then screamed beauty and they were guaranteed to work. Hell the Ruger Mini 30 and SKS fire the same caliber round, although the Ruger is more accurate; the SKS serves its purpose just as well as any other rifle the US has manufactured.

On the contrary,(and I must compliment how well you handle our language)

I measure and weigh all other combat arms against

the firepower, ease of use, and ease of maintenance of AKs,

SKSs, and even the lowly M44, and most of the others come up

wanting.

Ever hear of a MAUSER???? I have less than $900 in both of these rifles, optics included. $100 Houge stocks, $200 barreled actions, then put used aftermarket take off barrels. How about getting a $500 CMP Garand? That's a piece of American history. Don't tell me that quality firearms aren't out there for cheap. Look around, armslist, guns America, gunbroker, local gun shop. How about an enfield, or a M1carbine? Don't settle for a $90 mosin that kicks like a mule and throw corrosive ammo down. Why spend $450 on an Sks when you can drop $500 on a CMP Garand and get to know some people in the CMP or in the NRA.

don't live vicariously
1. All I see is an everyday, modern gun that looks like you could go pick up at pretty much any store.

2. Mosins DON'T kick that hard. It actually kicks lighter than my Remington Model 700 30-06. Plus, last time I checked, 8mm kicked almost exactly as hard as 30-06.
