And I don't know a damn thing about them lol. I bought this gun as my main big bullet rifle and I'll be buying a .22 rifle soon. The reason why I bought this one over an M1 like I was planning is because this one was dirt freakin cheap. It's REAL nasty though but from what I'm told these rifles clean up real good and can be easily cleaned at that....of course I'm sure you guys can either tell me the truth on the matter. I need to know all I can about SKS's and I'll be darting all around here looking for information on them, but if you guys can link me to some fun facts and the proper dismantling and field stripping and cleaning of the weapon that would be great. I would use this thread as a quick reference to myself. Eitherway. YEEEEEHAAAAW!
