I used to own a Norinco SKS. It was $79, I think. It didn't shoot groups so much as patterned like a shotgun at 100 yards. The really crappy trigger didn't help, I'm sure. It was heavy, gritty and vague. Oh, and the sear didn't have a positive engagement, so you could easily slam fire it by rapping the stock on the ground. I put a longer stock on it, which made it more comfortable to shoot, but no more accurate. It never failed to feed, fire, extract or eject. That's about the best I can say about that particular rifle. I sold it.
