For a fun rifle to mostly do target shooting with should i go for the sks or an AK? I was initially thinking an AK but the SKS is hard to pass up for the price. Opinions?
Century has SKS's for $299. The stock is a p.o.s if you ask me. But other than that the barrel and the guts of it are just fine. Just needs a bit of elbow greese and bullets will fly. Having shot an AK47 and an SKS. I think the SKS is better with my SKS I can reach out further and it has better accuracy plus if you have no mags an AK is about a useful as a club whilst an SKS if you have no stripper clips just load them in by hand. Mind you the AK47 I shot was a true Assault Rifle as in it was selective fire had a semi automatic, fully automatic, safe positions. I couldn't get a lot of the shots on target with the AK though.What's a reasonable going price for an SKS these days? I'm not worried too much about the stock..if it's in really bad shape I'll just replace it.

My two LGS, last I was in, didn't have any in-stock. I think the only place I could find them other than the internet would be at Gun Shows. I'm not afraid to haggle the price but I don't want to offend them with a ridiculous counter offer. I guess my bottom line question is; How much is too much, in your opinion, to pay for an average condition SKS?You can still find them for $299. Just have to look around
