    I'm happy with my Chinese/Norinco with the full length barrel & spike/monopod.

    Yup, which is good, because duder sold me some "mildly" corrosive ammo with it.

    Will have to come back for pics, Tapco OD green furniture with collapsing buttstock, Tech sights peep sights http://www.tech-sights.com/sks.htm .

    I have a norinco and I love it. Finally got to put rounds through it today. I still need to get a bayonet though.

    I like the Yugo SKS because not only it is a accurate shooter, it has a grenade launcher that works.
    It is a lot of fun, we made up a game for it.
    I launch the first grenade and mark it's landing point with spray paint.
    Then everyone tries to drop one in the same spot (or as close as possible)or tries to beat the distance.

    I never understood the grenade launcher. How does it work? It doesnt seem like my fathers riot AR-15 with a tear gas launcher.

    Russian

    Bought this one off an Army buddy going through a divorce back in 96.

    Paid $175.00 for the rifle, $50.00 for the Ultra Light stock, and traded a POS, $20 handgun for 4 hi cap steel mags! :)

    Best gun deal I've ever made...:)

    TACK

    I no longer have any SKS left in the mix, but I loved my 1951 Russian. The Yugo's are the best currently available. IMO

    Thanks
    I like that one too
    The other one had some kind of bubba stock so I got the camo Monte Carlo to replace it.
    Looks odd, but a very comfortable stock.

    Some of the oddest ones are the most comfortable.

    To use the grenade launcher on the Yugo SKS M59/66, first make sure the gun is unloaded. Then slide the grenade tube over the end of the launcher. Push in on the gas shut off button & move to the left as far as it will go until it is on top of the gas block. Lift the grenade launcher sight up until it snaps into place. Load one BLANK round (do not use a regular round) pull back on the charging handle & let go, with the butt stock on the ground holding at about a 40° angle aiming down range pull the trigger.

    My choices

    I love my Russian, but i also found the early chinese to be very well made. The Yugo ia also very well made, i'm actually going to purchase one. Lets not forget the Romanian. The Romy is a close clone to the Ruskie. Even the later chinese w/pinned barrels seem to work very well. I personally like the screw in barrel with long collar.If someone was to make one of those guns today, with all the machining that went into that gun, it would cost many times more then you pay today. A great gun, well made and simple...
