Ok, /k/, I'm doing the meme and buying an SKS. Convince me otherwise and offer alternatives or gtfo.
>>
>>28495548
It's about the same cost as an AK, which is really the only pertinent competitor. Personally the SKS is cooler just cause it looks cool and buying anything more than a carry and home defense gun for their combat capabilities is for tacticool faggots.
>>
They're fun and reliable. I just bought one yesterday after selling my old one a few months back.

Do it faggot
>>
>>28495548
I like them if you get one of the type 56 Chinese ones like in your picture for less than 400 with fees your doing pretty good. They clean up really nice with some elbow grease and look like they have seen some shit. I think J&G still has some

I personally wouldn't pay more than $400 for one though I don't care who made it.

Reliable as fuck, easy to obtain ammo, has no need for aftermarket, and can be used as a spear in the off chance you plan to go fishing.

How many guns would you say fit that tier?
>>
My first gun was a Romy SKS

I still have it, and love it.

They're great for ban states or if you want something that shoots an intermediate cartridge and isn't an AK or AR, otherwise you may want to consider looking into a cheap AK
>>
>>28495548
huge, heavy, fixed mag

A proper Russian SKS is going to run you ~$700. You're too late to get in on the SKS game.

Still used in combat to this day. And try to find either a Soviet or Sino-soviet. Early Chinese ones were under commie supervision, and after the Soviets left, they were lax on quality control and changed to the pig sticker bayonet

My only issue has been finding a similar priced AK. Building an AR (from 80% lower) is beyond my technical ability plus budget is $500. Gonna spend the excess on ammo/cleaning supplies. I'm still thinking it's a good idea tho. Classic firearms has yugos for sale that look pnice
>>
>>28495724
That's a Type 56

>>28495680
there's so few stamped receiver SKSes in the US that they've got actual collector's value
>>
Don't SKSs have a slamfire issue or something to that effect?
>>
>>28495792
Apparently when the firing pin and housing get dirty or filled with cosmoline, the pin can jam forward and slamfire yeah but when it's kept relatively clean they do fine
>>
I will try to convince you NOT to buy an SKS, here we fuckin go

I bought an SKS in 2014, kept it for a bit, sold it

I liked the rifle, it shot well, but I really just wanted a fucking AK and didnt fully come to that realization yet

I bought mine for 330, it was a Sino Soviet (for those who dont know, Russian SKS parts assembled in China) so the build quality on it was REALLY nice, given how much of a beating was on the stock and gun I can almost guarantee that the gun saw combat. Rifling was super clean, possibly rebarreled, I will never be 100% certain

PROS:
>inexpensive
>shoots very well
>heavy weight makes it a soft shooter
>fun as fuck to shoot
>chest rigs and slings are readily available for ~$10 each and totally worth it
>reasonably accurate

CONS:
>heavy
>fixed 10 rd mag
>detachable mags are NOT WORTH IT AT ALL, they suck ass
>20 rd detachable mags are available but unless they were fitted to the gun theyre trash, and theyre large and annoying, at ~$40 i do not think theyre worth it
>stripper clips that are reliable are expensive and hard to find, i had 3 russian stripper clips and they were great, i had ~2 dozen chinese stripper clips and they were horrid, some just flat out wouldnt work
>bayonet is really nothing more than cosmetic
>COSMOLINE! you will NEVER get all the cosmo out unless you go through some crazy shit
>stocks on non-commercial or warehouse guns (Norinco exports, later production Type 56's, later production Yugos) will be beat to fuck
>slamfires, while mostly avoidable with good cleaning, i still had 2 slam fires after cleaning the gun thoroughly
>cleaning is a cunt, cleaning the barrel and gas system is super easy, but cleaning the trigger pack is a pain in the ass, cleaning the firing pin channel is difficult, i was never able to get my firing pin out of the bolt
>despite cosmoline you may still have rust on critical parts, replacements are going to be expensive/hard to find and may require fitting to function properly
>cont
>>
>>28495779
Some guy was trying to hock one at my local gun show for $1045. Said it was a special one because the stamping of the serial number/factory info was incomplete. Furniture was a shit and the dude was nuts to try and sell it at that
>>
>>28495792
That's pretty much a myth; they CAN slamfire if they're dirty as fuck; as long as the firing pin area's clean, you're good. If you're really worried, you can get an aftermarket pin that takes care of the issue
>>
>>28495792
Only if you don't clean the bolt and firing pin. If the firing pin doesn't rattle when you shake the bolt, then you didn't get all of the cosmoline out. I cleaned my SKS bolt and firing pin by leaving it in a tupperware container filled with mineral spirits for 24 hours.

One.

>>28495548
At this point a decent AK isn't that much more expensive than a decent SKS. You'll likely end up with an AK anyways, just save up a bit more up front and skip to the logical conclusion.

Can you guys recommend a good AK to start with?

>cons continued
>FUCK THE TRIGGER. Its like dragging a 450 lb dead hooker through a muddy gravel road, absolutely fucking horrendous. Can you make it better? Sure in the same way you can make a fatal wound better, but you wont solve the problem fully
>should you decide to upgrade your bolt to accept a spring loaded firing pin (thus preventing slam fires) you will be paying over $100 and waiting weeks for the work to get done, hard to justify spending 1/3rd of the rifle's cost on the upgrade
>any aftermarket parts (stocks etc) are very much worthless, if you dont like the LOP or your stock is SUPER beat to fuck youve got a shitty road ahead. There was a time where you could buy a cracked stock SKS for under $200 and then a replacement stock for $20, dont think thats an option anymore, any stock that isnt on the rifle already is probably going to need to be fitted
>rust can still be present on or in the rifle, giving a full inspection in the shop is not gong to happen
If you insist on buying an SKS, I would say go with the Yugos. A lot of the stocks are nice and clean as theyve been sitting unissued in warehouses for decades. Sinos are somewhat more common now as the more recent shipments have contained a large number of sinos (chances are they were just at the back of some warehouse this entire time as theyre older than the Type 56's that were mass produced form chinese parts which could signal the warehouses running out of stock) but those sinos are seriously beat up and require a fair amount of work to get them looking and working good.

Finding albanians/romanians/etc is difficult and you shouldnt waste your time finding them unless youre deep into collecting SKS's

If you dont have an AK yet, the second you buy one you will not touch your SKS much, the AK doesnt have the issues the SKS does and at current SKS prices, a few bills can get you a decent AK instead.
>>
>>28495879
It's been a while since I've been rifle shopping so some of this may be a little out of date.

Recent WASRs and Yugo AKs aren't bad and can be found for around $600, although some Yugo AKs go up to around $800. You ought to be able to find an unconverted Saiga for around the same price.
>>
>>28495879
the Yugo AKs are good and fairly inexpensive, the aftermarket for them is there and parts are readily available. Alternatively you can convert a Saiga, saigas in my area are going for ~$600. Kalash US is also starting to churn out AKs at reasonable prices, keep an eye out for em

You can also get a QC inspected WASR from Atlantic and you will get a decent AK, theyre not the best thing out there but with the QC assurance from Atlantic youre getting a good gun, it wont be the best AK on the block but it will be good enough for a range toy.

>>28495900
In terms of hunting, AKMs are pretty much all on equal footing, Arsenals are going to be a bit nicer but youre paying a bit more

Disassemble bolt
Clean / Lube firing pin channel

DO NOT BUY THE AFTERMARKET FIRING PIN SPRING KIT
>>
>>28495957
disassembling the bolt is a bitch though, getting the firing pin out is nearly impossible in some rifles, on others its really easy, i took mine to a gunsmith and he gave up trying to get the firing pin out, just couldnt remove that big ass pin in the bolt

My sks is a factory 26 type 56. So far, the only thing to fail was it having a steel case strip the rim when trying to extract. Was popped out with the cleaning rod. Was in mud and dirt during a meet where an AR failed after one shot in the mud and an AK failed after a few. Fixed mag means never losing them and being able to carry a lot of ammo. $10 Chest rig has 200 rounds in it, and the stock bag has 30.

>literally no
then youre overpaying for an SKS and an idiot, like i said i paid 330 for mine

Mine shot just fine, I was able to ring steel at 300 yds without much issue, the major issue with it being the fuck awful trigger, how well it shoots depends on how worn your barrel is (if you could read you would notice that mine had a good barrel) and the shooter, im sorry youre a shit shot, sign up for some classes maybe

Get a Chinese Type 56 SKS. Some sites still have them around $320. Russians are too expensive and may as well buy an AK. Yugos are all over $400 at stores, could find one less in a private sale.

I have an early type 56, looks beat to hell but stock is solid and it works. Not worried about messing up the finish or anything.

Never had a slamfire on my Yugo. You're supposed to take the bolt apart with a punch to get the firing pin out, and clean out the firing pin channel, btw. Gotta soak it in penetrating oil to do so, but completely solves the problem.

its more or less a meme gun, but theyre fun.

i personally would like to own a wasr or a vz58 if i wanted a semi auto 7.62x39 rifle.

also clean it real good, especially the bolt and bcg because if you abuse it and allow the firing pin to get gunky itll burp on you so be careful.

Go to the ethnic part of town.
You will find a gun/hunting/sports/something/something store.
It will NOT be part of a chain.
It WILL be owned by an elderly man from Europe (probably a poor part of Europe).
It WILL have bad lighting and large safes or other products which make it difficult to see inside of the store.
It WILL have at least one family member of the owner employed and one guy who really knows his shit but probably could not hold down any job other than this one.
It will NOT be open the first time you find it.
Walk the entire store.
It will NOT have carpets/walls/lighting any sort of interior decorating placed there since 1988.
You will find a lot of guns just leaning up against walls or in half-destroyed boxes on the ground behind the counters.
Take some time, look through them, you may find something you like there.
When the owner or guy who really knows his shit is no longer talking to one of the regulars tell him that you are looking for a semi-auto in .762 but don't really like the SKS.
He WILL know just what you are looking for.
He MIGHT have it in the back (50/50 really).
If he DOES, it will be an old military-esque rifle, detachable magazine but otherwise functionally similar to an SKS.
Most people who see it will ask you what the fuck it is.
The guy who really knows his shit will know everything about it. No one else you will ever meet will know more than 75% of what he knows.
It WILL be dripping in oil but otherwise in good condition.
If you buy it, it will be a good little gun.
If it is not in the back, do not hold your breath, just go out and buy the SKS.

Hey, I watched your video about a year ago without realizing you were from /k/. It really helped me fix the Chinese ones I bought on Amazon before realizing they didn't quite fit in Yugos.
