    I have 2 SKS's.
    One I removed from an NVA soldier in the city of Kontum during TET 68 (he no longer needed it) and the other I traded a set of jungle fatigues for about 20 years ago.
    Both still shoot well with their original parts.

    I bought it from another military member in my unit who had a collection of SKS's and parts.

    I made the mistake of having the weapon refinished in a moment of stupidity instead of leaving it as original back when I was young and dumb and didn't think about the value..

    Here's a pic of one of the piles of captured weapons we had to choose from. Most of them were battle worn badly but there were a few fairly new issues ( I guess for TET). Wish I could have brought back the RPD machine gun front left

    First, the SKS is one of my favorite Milsurps.

    You can have your AKMs, I've got one, and

    it's no SKS.

    I keep my Russian all original.

    I have a couple minor aftermarket upgrades on my

    Norinco.

    Try a Yugo with the grenade launcher sometime. The Russians are a symphony

    of balanced perfection, but the grenade launcher acts as a counterweight

    to help put you back on target quickly.

    This is the only place I know that had them and they are sold out.
    Good luck in finding one.

    When I was 14 I bought a peban sks by norinco. It had a 30 round magazine, which meant a good lump of cash every range visit. I the gun was pretty reliable and ate up anything. Sadly, as a poor college student, I sold it, I might get a new one!

    When I dumped the 30 round mag the barrel got pretty hot, but it didn't seem unusually prone to overheating.
