    I do not like AK or SKS rifles, I think they are garbage. I shoot heavy bench guns, don't love AR's but think they are superior. I will refrain from posting. I want you to persuade me to own one and I know how inaccurate they are. I know you can throw sand in them and keep working. So if you have the stones, try and sell me on them. p.s. my rifles shoot .200 5 shot groups. And thy are reliable, accuracy is better than volume. Please try!!

    I have a saiga 7.62x39... Although its not a "true" ak all the systems are the same.. I bought the rifle from my buddy for 300 bucks.

    I personally saw him shoot over 1500 rds of corrosive ammo through that gun upstate with me one weekend... He never cleaned the gun and 5 months later I bought it..
    Soaked the parts in some windex put a little bit of oil on it and I have never had any problems what so ever.. I still shoot corrosive ammo through it. I get 1280 rds for 219 bucks! It's like 17 cents a rd..

    Also it will eat up and steel cased cheap ammo u throw at it too.

    So what are you really buying? A accurate to about 300 yrd rifle with lots of stopping power, cheap ammo so u can shoot all day, and mine has not to much recoil as long as u hold it right.

    They aren't heavy bench guns.. And if u want a sling will help with that too.

    As for the sks I never shot or held one so don't have any input on that.

    Buy an ak.. U will like it and won't regret it.

    Here's a reason to believe SKS's are accurate rifles. The first time I went to an outdoor range and shooting, I shot an SKS. I had shot once before in my life, a rifle and a pistol on my sisters farm at a few milk jugs, so basically I had no experience of any sort shooting. I shot an SKS at 100 yds at a 10 inch target and I hit the target the first try. I heard the plink of the metal. The gun was heavy for me so I was sitting and I had my elbow on the bench to steady the rifle. But I'm telling you, I was impressed with the rifle because I'm not all that great of a shot. :D

    This is kind of an odd thread. I'm not going to try and convince you to buy an AK because you are a bench rest shooter, the AK 47/ sks etc are for solders not bench rest shooters. In fact I promise if you were in the field and had to run and gun you would no doubt grab an AK and a couple of 30 rd mags than your heavy bench rifle and a hand full of rounds that you have to put in your pocket.

    I'm not going to try and convince you to buy an ak

    He is a sniper he would grab a pistol and his bench rifle
    1 shot 1 kill

    Me my eye sight sux I will grab the ak 47 spray And pray
    I know the ak platform best

    For hunting use the ar platform in 308 more accurate

    Lol! He's not a sniper, he's a bench rest competition shooter.

    Their's nothing wrong with competition shooting, but I don't think it's fair to compare rifles.

    Bench rest rifles are precision rifles made for upmost accuracy, they can cost thousands of dollars, and they are heavy as hell.

    AK47 was designed to put a reliable, light weight rifle in solders hands as cheaply as possible.

    If you love sitting behind a bench and stacking bullets on top of each other all day and loading all your own ammo, cool, don't buy an AK.

    But if you don't have much money, and love to run and gun an AK is tons of fun.

    In fact let me say this, try and talk me into buying an over priced, heavy as hell bench gun, when I can get an AK 47 or 74 and shoot literally 1,000's of rounds through it and have an Absolute blast for about a 1/4 of the cost.

    If you do some improvements on a sks, kinda build it like so many people do with the ar. I think you would be suprised with the sks. If you did some good custom rounds for it, you would love it like I love mine. I dont think you could get the same range as them heavy guns but it's better then you might think.

    I know, right? People make it seam like the AK can't hit anything. I can put rounds on steel at 200 yards standing open sights pretty easy.

    Why?
    If you don't like them, you don't like them. Life goes on.
    I think the SKS is fun. Whereas I don't see the enjoyment factor in bench rest shooting. YMMV.

    If you are trying to get the accuracy of a fine long distance weapon from an SKS or an AK, nobody will convince you to buy one. These rifles are BATTLE rifles, not sniper weapons. Long distance is just not the SKS/AK thing. However, if you ever plan to get in a battle inside an a urban area, you might prefer one of these to a heavy bolt rifle.

    It would be like me trying to convince you to drive railroad spikes with a claw hammer. They are both hammers, but designed for different jobs.

    The biggest part of the argument is philosophy of use. Comparing them to your bench rifles is apples to oranges.

    Would you carry your bench guns as a primary weapon in an urban combat enviroment with dozens of enemy combatants teaming all over roof tops and through the streets and alleyways? I suspect your rifles would be a little short on rate of fire and magazine capacity.

    Convincing you is more about changing your mission than selling you on the pros and cons you likely already understand.

    You're comparing a proven "battle rifle" of 65 years to a heavy barreled target gun? Two things designed for completely different purposes?
    I guess bottom line is who cares whether you like them or not? Why should we have to convince you of anything?
    I like them and it bothers me not one bit that you're into bench rest! Good for you!

    I'll skip the repeat of comparing apples and oranges, though it seems correct.

    I have a beloved older Ford F-150. No, it does not do 0-60 in the time of your Corvette. It would lose an Indy style race to several sports cars.

    Can I watch you move a half cord of firewood with your Vette? Hook up a trailer for the bass boat? Pick up the new washer and dryer from the store?

    I think I could probably tow a whole cord of firewood with the AK tied between the trailer and my 83 150 lol
