My local gun store has a Chinese SKS, "very good" bore, "fair" wood stock, for $289. I'm not concerned about the stock - can always be replaced. All matching serial numbers.
Good deal? Good gun?
For the money, I'm actually more leaning towards a Kel-tec Sub 2000 in 9mm, compatible with my Glock mags - if I can find one. I don't have many places near me to shoot more powerful carbines or rifles at longer ranges...and I already have a Mini 14, and a Rem 870 pump shotgun.
Appreciate the feedback!
