I have just purchased a Yugoslavian SKS, which I outfitted with a 30 round clip
I am also looking to buy a TT-33 which I seen at a local gun shop, just waiting for my 21st birthday
Does anybody else own a cold war era firearm?
How much did you pay for it?
About $400, quite expensive for SKS standards, but i justified it because the Yugoslavian versions are generally more sought after, because they are "beefy" compared to past models. Plus, on a side note the 7.62x39 one one of the cheapest rounds out there. Averaging at about 20 cents a bullet.
Comrade? For the love of God... put the original mag back. You have a nice SKS - don't ruin it by trying to turn it into an AK... it just isn't going to be one.
I have a Yugo, and three Russians (two with laminate stocks). Oh - also have about 15 7.62's, and the same number of 5.45's (AK's - in the event you don't get the abreviations)... I love them all - but one should NOT turn a rifle into what it isn't. An SKS is a work of art... not a tool of mass destruction
Trust me - when I was VERY young, I removed a bayo lug from one of my Russian SKS's. I've regreted it ever since, and will only find peace once I locate a replacement Russian SKS front site block
why does everyone like the SKS?
Cheap, widespread, legal.
Damn, I wish I could own an SKS legally so that I could go hunting but the gun laws are so stringent here that you can only purchase low-powered rifles. However, I would like to own an M1 Garand legally.
Guns are fragging awesome!
whats the fun of owning a weapon legally? here in the US, I am a proud pistol owner, under the age of 21
Yeah,that's why you have(among other things) Columbine and other shooting sprees,-edit, skinheads,rednecks armed with guns etc...
Edit by soviet78 -Please don't use that word in that context.
Did LOZZZ1405 say NIGAZ?
And by that I mean the Nigerian-Russian natural gas joint venture.
Really? I always figured it was bad parenting...your can't blame it on weapons, because the simple fact is that a bullet does not carry ideas!
True,but it makes violence more potent...
