Black friday is coming!! Wich would you rather have and why?
more reliable accurate rifle and much better round than the wussy 7.62x39
if your going to get something chambered in x39 just get a ak and have done with it.
im not a sks fan.
Another Mosin cause ammo is cheap and they have tons more history than the SKS.
I would rather get a cheap ak than an sks. I would go with a mosin though you migt find some under $100 on black friday
I'd say go for the best of both worlds.
Get a Mosin M44, the Mosin Carbine with the built-in
bayo. A hoot to shoot, it's 8" shorter than the unwieldy
91/30,(still a fine rifle) thunderous, and you can still get
Polish, Russian, and Romanians in mint condition, unfired,
for a small premium, well worth the 75 or 80 extra bucks.
No disrespect, JonM, but I would never saddle anybody with
a crappy AKM, when they could have an SKS, with a milled
receiver, for less.
Witch would be the better SHTF rifle?
Who cares? The SHTF is NEVER GONNA HAPPEN, anyway...
OH sure, let's be ready for the one thing which has never
happened in the past, and is extremely least likely to EVER happen.
Let's all get Titanium bunkers, so we don't get crushed by
tons of lemon peels falling out of the sky, too...
Yanno, the way the Democrats have things effed up at this point,
killing us would probably be doing us all a favor, OP.
J&G has Mosin's for $99
Chinese T53s or M91/30s?
In my opinion an SKS is a better SHF gun. And just a better rifle overall. There's really no comparison.
Then again It cost quite a bit more. For what SKS's cost now days, I'd probably just get an AK.
Both are fun range toys. In SHTF the SKS would be more handy. Neither is optimal for SHTF. For bolt guns I'd rather have an Enfield. For semi autos I'd rather have an AR (AK would be another option).
SKS rifles in general are farely smooth running firearms. My is a pleasure to shoot and doesn't do too bad in the accuracy department with cheap eastern bloc surplus. That's what they were designed to shoot and that's what I feed mine. Mosin's are good running rifles too but in any kinda of defensive situation the SKS will prove better.
Between a SKS and a Mosin, I think I'd take the Mosin.
The only reason I'd ever own a SKS was if I lived in a place that banned AK's or detachable magazines. Since I have an AK, I can't think of any real reason why I'd take a SKS over an AK, given the choice.
The SKS is longer and heavier than it needs to be.
The Mosin is still a longer, heavier rifle than a modern bolt-action. However, you can ditch the wood stock for a synthetic stock with better ergonomics.
Between a Remington 700 and a Mosin Nagant, I'd take the Remington every day of the week and twice on Sunday (the day I normally go to the range).
I have both the Mosin Nagant and SKS rifles. They are products of different times in history. If you are in open country, then the Mosin Nagant, hands down as it was built for longer distances. In an urban area, the SKS is the choice even over an M38 or M44 Mosin Nagant.
If the choice is between the Mosin Nagant and the Lee Enfield as suggested above a few posts the Lee Enfield would be my choice.
They're both cheap. Get at least one of each. the way the Democrats have things effed up at this point,
killing us would probably be doing us all a favor, OP. Wait What?
Dude my first rifle I bought when I got out thrarmy was M91/30.....Mosins arw additive but again so are Sks's so I'd start with a M91/30 and/or a Norinco Sks
Now I see what you guys are talkin about! Glad I listend ;D I bought a 1930 hex reciever izvech on black Friday for 180$ the simplicity of its design amazed me! I used break free clp to clean off the cosmoline. What mosins do you guys have? Let's see em!
I got a M91/30 Tula 1940 and a Type 53
Agreed about the M44, they are a ton of fun to shoot: LOUD, lots of recoil, and 2 feet of flame out the front.
But for SHTF, the SKS wins--a 10-shot semi beats a 5-shot bolt action.
