An SKS goes for $400? I remember some buddies and I each bought one about 15 years ago for $99. It was the biggest piece of junk I ever owned; first time out shooting it started doing random burst of 3-5 rounds. I took it back to the gun dealer and he told me he was going to have to charge me for field testing, I mentioned the fact that he sold me a defective weapon that was firing random bursts at which point he told me to keep my voice down. So I got a call about 2 days later and he told me to come in and get a new one (no charge for testing), I got there and asked him about their testing and he smirked and said by the time they were done the thing was firing fully automatic. They may be built better these days but I don’t think I’d bother with one.
