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?

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

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!

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!
