Hi everyone! An acquaintencs of mine is a FFL dealer. I emailed him asking him to help me find an SKS - holy crap, I didn't realize there are so many variations. I know my dad paid about $50 for his 15 or so years ago. My question is: What is the easiest way to tell if it is a stamped or a milled Norinco? We are just emailing back and forth right now and he does not know much about them. He said it is in excellent condition and will sell it to me for $200 (which is what he gave for it on a trade.) Does it matter much if it is stamped or milled? Should I hunt around for a russian made? I'v noticed that a lot of people seem to think the early russian made SKS's are the way to go. For a weekend warior plinker is it worth the difference in price? I am probably going to shoot it once a month or so at the most. Thanks in advance for any help!
