Pred said:While I can't wait to buy my first SKS, and while I love what the guy did to the gun, for $150 more you could build an AR-15 with the same accessories, and better accuracy. If I went out to buy a used SKS-D right now, I'd pay what, atleast $425? For another $100 I could build an AR on a brand new lower and a used upper. The rear sight would cost a little more, but everything else would be the same. Not trying to start a flame war, just pointing out that I disagree with the whole "inexpensive" part when you start out with an almost $500 gun. Now, if he had started with a really nice $200 SKS, that would be a different story. If you agree or not, as I said, thats just the way I feel. Nice find Ifly, that gun is still really cool.
As stated, the rifle cost about $375CDN +/- when it was all said and done. Considering the cost of some of the rifles in my cabinet, I think thats fairly inexpensive.Pred said:My whole point was that I disagreed with the owner of that gun when he said he build an inexpensive firearm.
