>>28688267
That sounds about right. Consider the M1A, which even with a cast receiver is still a $1500 rifle. I imagine if an SKS were produced new, what with the the machined parts and wood stock, it would be at least a $700 to $1000 rifle, depending on whether or not major parts were cast.

no the ar10 is named by AWB, and you cannot make an ar10 receiver out of stamped sheet metal. the goal of this "neo sks" is to make a battle capable rifle that can't be victim to bullshit legislation.
loose enough inner tolerances to deal with being homemade, just print out the blueprints, trace on spec'ed sheet metal and form with hydraulic press. higher quality milled receivers from manufacturer, built to accept already market present parts from FALs ARs and AKs, whlie being a battle rifle that doesn't scare liberals.
did I mention the hidden bayonet lug and open-bolt full-auto possibility?

>>28688828
guess what, 223 and 556 NATO are there too. It's part of a datasheet listing pressure differences and case dimensions to determine tolerances for a bolt face and extractor that doesn't need super tight exact lockup to safely and reliably function unlike an AR.
>>
>>28689285
Except .223 Remington and 5.56 NATO are different according to SAAMI. .308 Winchester and 7.62 NATO are the same.
>>
>>28689307
retardedly simlilar yes, same? no
308 cases have thicker walls, rated for higher pressures. and the shoulders are a little different.

There's lots of wooden stocks available.

Hell, you can do your own.

>>28688751
The M14 is inherently more complex though, also the receiver is more complex to create.
I would say it would start out at around 600 or 700.

Maybe the main age groups on the board buy it less now that the prices have gone up and they're not all over the place and less easy to find each year that goes by?
For me personally, the sks was my first rifle I was really proud of. It was the thing that made me decide to keep pursuing slav guns. But it was eventually replaced by a gun that's better for my uses overall.
Still, I took it out a couple days ago and plinked my 400 yard steel with it. It's still a great rifle and a lot of fun.
And from my experience, 762x39 rifles seem to be as good/accurate as the ammo you run through them. 762x39 is the one cartridge where I feel like I have to be extremely picky about ammo brands.

>>
>>28695180
You need to have machining skills and even the ones converted by the Chinese for export (no SKS with a detachable mag has ever been used by a military) aren't as reliable as clip-fed.

There are some dudes in Texas iirc that make mag adapters so you can use Crapco mags with the duckbill cut off.

Every option is expensive/difficult enough to not be worth it over just buying an entry-level AK or AR with current SKS prices.
>>
>>28695273
I should add to yours, a good job will run at minimum 200 but many smiths charge 250-350 for it. By the time you pay for an SKS and the job a Wasr or other cheak sks are the same price.

I love my D but I had to heavily modify it with a dremel to get it to be reliable.

Plus in converted SKSen you can't load 30 rounds, the bolt sits too close on top of the mag so you can only load 28, it has to have room to push the rounds down to lock a mag.
>>
>>28695180
Very hard, if not impossible.
Just save yourself the time, expense, and trouble and buy a vz58 then. Since that's essentially what you are going for and it'll be built better than the franken gun you are going for.
or like >>28695231 said, get one that already takes those mags

The SKS was a powerful phenomenon five+ years ago, when they could be had for $200 a piece or less.

Those days are long gone. SKS are fine rifles, but they've moved on to collectors pieces rather than an everymans gun.
>>
>>28691876
The days when Nagant revolvers were about 50-60 bucks, Enfield's around 150, and shit Wasr's were 300.

When 7.62*39 was 1.50 a box for GT and nugget food was as cheap as the nuggets.

Bye bye good days. I wish I would have bought an sks then, but didn't. I just ordered a chinese one the other night to make up for the pain I feel of missing out. Feels bad paying more, but I've accepted it needs done or my collection is missing something.

>>
>>28695539
It could happen I suppose. I mean, I'd say the gun market has gotten pretty huge since bush left office (and AWB expired) and I guess things have to balance out eventually. I think, legislation aside, the gun community will shrink back to its core members again eventually, losing out the CoD kids and casuals who just jumped on the hype/paranoia train of the Obama years. The good thing is that when it happens, therell be a surplus of weapons around that will be sold off cheap. The bad thing is that our community will lose numbers. The only thing that will keep this hobby alive is bringing in and retaining new members OF ALL WALKS OF LIFE. Personally I'm more concerned about this then super cheap stuff.

That being said, surplus is pretty much done. Big global wars are over, and countries now would rather destroy equipment or re-sell to rebel groups. Only hope is reopening trade with Rus and China since they stack deep and sell cheap.

Ares SCR is ar15 spec only so far, no big calibers.
I'm glad you brought up the mini-14/30, i wasnt thinking about them at all.
I have not looked at that receiver design yet, but its essentially an m14/m1a right? correct me if I'm wrong, but those are a bitch to change barrels.

both of those guns are patented and use proprietary parts, my idea for a new SKS adds the FN FAL recoil buffer, adds a bolt hold open, and uses magwell adapters for AR and AK mags my favorite part is a universal bolt to operate everything between 22 hornet and 454 casull. the bigger stuff like 300WM 500swMag and 7.62x54R would probably be dangerous to fire in a stamped receiver, but a milled one should be able to take it.

the sks receiver has a ton of empty space inside to work with, not to mention it was designed for bigger cartridges to begin with.

Bakelite mags and restoring the bayonet.

Maybe those peep sights you bolt onto the rear of the receiver if you don't like the original rear sight.

>>28694994
Salty.

>>28695180
It's absolutely possible to modify a regular SKS to use AK mags, and it'll work, but it's a good bit more involved than just swapping some parts.
Basically you have to remove a little bit of material from the receiver where the mag goes so that it can fit, thin down the bottom part of the bolt so that it can pick up cartridges from the AK mags, and then polish up the feedramp.
Question is, is this worth it to you?
If you want a x39 blaster that'd cheap and takes big mags, WASRs come to mind (they had their outstanding problems fixed in 08' so they're not dogshit now), if you just want an SKS that takes AK mags, that exists.

>>28695515
I always hear people talk about the glory of cheap nuggets and SKSes, but do people ever adjust the cost for inflation?

>>28695728

>HURR WHAT'S ECONOMY
Old milsurp was cheap because there was a huge supply and modest demand. As time went, supply got bought and demand grew. It's just the nature of the market.

Also, cheapo guns aren't gone at all.
WASR is cheap and not that bad at all these days.
Zastava makes Tokarevs and AKs that are cheap and good, Rock Island Armory makes 1911 pistols that are good and cheap.

There's domestic cheap arms too, the Ruger American rifles are relatively cheap, the Ruger P90 series pistols are very good considering how cheap they are, Kahr makes economy models, there are economic clones of the Mossberg and Remington shotguns, if you really want a cheap shotgun there's single-shot ones that rarely break 100 in cost new and can be had for like 70 used.
Speaking of used, lots of nice guns can be had for cheap used just because they're dated and nobody cares about them anymore.
You used to be able to find the S&W 5906 in the 300 range and those are excellent pistols of high quality.

16" barrel SKS's are commercial produced SKS's, there wasn't a single "paratrooper" military model.

When 95% of all SKS's on the markets were made to fight, why the fuck would you ever take one of the 5% made for plinking?
>>
>>28688238
its actually $210 for the SKS and $280 for 1500rnds.

source: I just got back from Canadian Tire.

>he got the small size

haven't shot any corrosive ammo but with cheap non corrosive gone i may have to start.
at least it isn't svt tier shitty to clean
>>
>>28700959
Can't you guys still get wolf and tula ammo down in the states?
>>
>>28700982
not in the states.
the big non corrosive x39 seller here got it from lugansk cartridge works, and that factory is right in the middle of a warzone so there won't be any more coming from there.
i could get tula but it's over 40c/round last time i checked. canadaammo was selling non corrosive for 25c/round

>canadaammo was selling non corrosive for 25c/round
Not anymore, their Norinco has been sold out forever and the Ukranian LCW ammo is suffering much the same fate.
>>
Somewhere along the line ak's became 700 dollars and sks' turned 450 and nuggetfood dried up.
It's a horrible time to be a newfag. I hope you all have stockpiles.
>>
>>28701047
did you read my entire post or just 1 line?
>>
>>28701209
The company that imports all the cheap non-corrosive 7.62x39 is in the middle of the Ukrainian conflict so the price went up substantially, right?
>>
>>28700943
Wouldn't all the mags be pinned to 5 rounds though? I don't want that shit.
>>
>>28701224
no.
canam was the importer and is getting zero ammo from lcw now.
so theres none to buy. the price went up before they ran out of stock completely.

>>28701272
its usually just a metal rod that could easily be snapped off. the dumbest part of the mag restrictions is how incredibly easy they are to get rid of

Pic related is the "pins" on my SVT-40 and SKS magazine, literally just two piece of sheet metal you could cut off some small sheers and a plastic block that you could probably snap off with your bare hand. Rifles are fine.
>>
>>28700890
$148 for the rifle and $198 for 1500 rounds converted using burger bucks. That`s 13 burgercents per round. I`m currently paying 25 burgercents or 35 syrupcents per round here in Texas.

Offer them 300 for it.

>>28697528
ARs are great.

>>28698933
>7.62x54R would probably be dangerous to fire in a stamped receiver
Nah. Aside from military machineguns, there's the SVD and then there's Molot Vepr's in that chambering.
It's not horribly far from .308 and 7.92mm Mauser, both which has been used in various stamped guns.

>>28698973
You don't have to, you just shoot it. Failing that it has a bayonet lug.

Also, blackbears are gargantuan pussies, you will never get in a fistfight with one, you can just howl and stomp your feet and they'll run in panic. At most they might bluff charge, but aside from the fact that they wont follow through with a real attack, you can scare them off with harsh tone of voice.

Which brings us to brown bears, who will fucking rape you before you can get in any good blows with the stock of any gun, which is why you shoot them instead.

>>28699099
They're fun collectibles.

>>28699165
Man that is some low quality b8
0/8 m8

>>28699327
Man that was in a sorry state, good job!

>>28701110
There's still more cheap options.
Again, the WASR, but then there's also the C39v2 which is a surprisingly good gun for being from Century
There's also the M&P-15 Sport, the Ruger AR-556, etc. There's still good entry-level "assault-gats" that don't cost a fortune.

>>28701272
Typically it's just a pin that blocks the follower from going down past 5 rounds, though I hear all kinds of variations regarding how magazines are plugged.
Shotgun tube mags commonly feature a plug of wood or plastic behind the follower, rifle mags either feature a pin (most commonly), or sometimes a follower with an extended bottom.
I heard some SKSs had lead poured into the bottom of the mag to block follower from going further than 5 but I have no clue if that's even true.
>>
>>28701400
>I heard some SKSs had lead poured into the bottom of the mag
Wouldn't surprise me, some SVT-40 magazines were cut in half and welded together to only hold 5 rounds.
Thankfully that practice seems rare.
>>
>>28700850
No threads in the hole on the bayonet lug for a screw. Had a makeshift screw nut combo in there but it looked goofy as fuck so I just took it off. I'd rather have no bayonet then one that did not look right. The bakelite mags I'm half and half on. I may pick some up in the future. Tech sights I've been wanting for awhile now.
>>
>>28701400
SVD receivers aren't stamped retard

But there are stamped receiver guns like the psl that fire that round
>>
>>28701721
I saw an image of an SKS with a bakelite AKM mag in it and I thought it looked nifty in combination with the wooden stock.
That's pretty much my motivation for that.

>>28701750
Really? I could have sworn they were, or that a variant of them were.

I guess I had them confused with the PSL.

Wasn't there also something called a "Tigr" or am I imagining that one?
>>
>>28688170
I hated my SKS, so yes
>>
>>28701721
Say, you know what would give some keks and make wannabe Ivans scream? If you took a picture of it in a black plastic stock, with Tech Sights and a railed gastube cover.

Actually, the orange Bakelite mags would give a nice contrast to the black plastic in that case.
>>
>>28701894
Why did you hate your SKS?
>>
>>28701904
Honestly, I dont really know exactly why. The stock was to short, I didnt like the sights, I never had fun shooting it. It was just pretty boring.
>>
>>28702061
Well, it was made for commie manlets, Warsaw pact stocks are shorter than the stock on heartbreaker's AR.

Also, I definitively see your point on sights.
