The SKS I had mentioned in another thread, I got it today! She's a chinese norinco in fantastic condition for $199. I spent the better part of the day cleaning out the cosmo and heavy greese. I just got back from the test fireing. I put 20 rounds through the rifle and it performed wonderfully. I still need to fire off a rest to make sure it is sighted in. I'll have to post some pictures of targets later.

Very cute baby! I definitely need one of those for my empty baby crib. Congratulations to the proud new parents.

199 is a steal for that Norinco, I paid more than that for mine years ago. It looks great and I am sure that it will be a great rifle for as long as you have it.

Where did you find such a nice SKS ? please...
I came upon this one with good ol dumb luck. I called up the local gun shop asking about an SKS and this just happened to be the only one that they had.

Think there would be anything wrong with refinishing the stock later down the road. It looks pretty nice now, but has a couple of scratches and dents.

Nice. I had a similar model. Traded it off. It got under my skin in a bad way that I could not have the bayoney properly/legaly mounted. It just always felt nuetered

Thanks for the info Rave. I am going to a gun show this month. We will see what kinda stuff I dig up. I am still looking for a decent priced AK. The shops around here want atleast 400 for one. I think that is kinda high.
