Damn. Not in my area or I'd have one. The cheapest I've seen was just under $600 (private sale) at a gun show and when the guy brought it to the range the first time it just ejected rounds because the a$$hole that sold it put the wrong cartridge guides in it. Lucky for my buddy he had me to work on it. I just charged him $40 for parts. Still obviously it wasn't all original as the scum bag claimed.

A clean Russian SKS-accurate,(for milsurp) well balanced,popular caliber,

well made, self contained carbine. Easy to strip and maintain in the field. A

great little inexpensive truck gun.


The 1894 Marlin lever carbine in .44 Remington Magnum. B-E-A-you-tiful

Black Walnut stock, great short-range knock down power, side ejection

allows a red-dot or scope at perfect placement position on rifle.


Hi-Point 995TS- exemplary value NIB- comes with sling, rails, takedown

tool, and a spring-loaded recoil compensator in the buttstock. Has a

warranty which can't be beat. Made in Ohio, here in the USA.

All for less than 300$. Due to a large amount of polymer in the

design, recoil is extremely tolerable. 9mm is cheap and fun to

plink and target shoot. Rail under rear iron sight makes

scope, or red-dot install a snap. Fantastic fun for the buck...

Saiga "sporter" AKs - $299 online --- cheapest, BEST, realest Russian AK youll have. and the conversion is soo easy.

Kel Tec PLR16 -- $3-500. not classified as a rifle, but if you get the tax stamp, you can have a great SBR. easy to clear a house, and take in and out of vehicle.

palmetto state/quentin defense upper on a plumcrazy, or New Frontier lower....

Whats everyone opinion on the Marlin XL7.

A lot of local folks here in Ky say they'd like to have one because their inexpensive so they wouldn't have to worry "as much" about banging it up.

In my opinion I would have to say my Saiga 7.62x39($350), Yugo sks($200), and hex receiver "Izzy" Mosin Nagant($100). My reason behind it: reliable, inexpensive ammo,not tack drivers but pretty accurate and most importantly it's what I was able to afford at the time I purchased each rifle.

i own three of them. an XS7 in 7mm-08, an XL7 in 25-06 and an XS7VH in 308. very accurate and well made rifle for the price and a true bargain. they shoot as accurate as rifles costing several times as much. i have shot and compared them to my Remington M700's, Winchester M70's, Ruger M77's and many others. they will hold their own as far as accuracy. they are not in the same level as a nice walnut stocked and blued steel hunting rifle as far as looks, but want an accurate and reliable hunting or shooting rifle without spending an arm or leg and not having to worry about scratching or banging it up hunting, then IMO it's one to give some serious consideration in when looking to buy.
