    I have a soviet SKS... AWESOME!

    Love it and wouldnt sell it for the world! Plus it will be my backup SHTF rifle in case my AR ever became inoperable.

    I wouldn't pay that for an SKS when you can buy an AK for $400 and be able to use AK magazines. By the time you put a TAPCO stock on so you can switch $35 SKS magazines, you'll have spent the cost of an AK anyway.

    With all due respect that's not the point here, he is looking at buying an SKS not an AK. Maybe he already has an AK or just does not want one. Most SKS owners are not looking to "tacticool" their SKS either and make it an AK wantabe. They are different rifles and both have different strengths and weaknesses. The SKS is not a just a cheaper lesser desirable rifle you get if you can't afford an AK. I own several examples of both rifles and the SKS is an all-together different gun with its own characteristics that stand on its own as both a shooter and as part of a collection. The Tapco detachable SKS 20 round mags go for around $20 by the way.

    Just remember if you add anything to your SKS, you need to be 922r compliant.
