Ban? Regarding SKS's? If they are "unissued", there shouldn't be any problems as all the SKS variants are pretty well made. The problems occur with those that are worn or corroded. If you use good commercial ammo, you'll be surprised how good they can be accuracy-wise. For cheap shooting fun, the Wolf and mil-surp ammo is okay. Most SKS's have chrome bores (the Yugos do not), but always clean them after shooting. The milsurp ammo should be considered "corrosive", despite what the package or ad says. Good luck and good shooting with your new rifle.
