i don't really like mine, it was an impulse buy the day i turned 18. paid 140 for it with a 30 rd plastic clip. IMO the 30 rd clip is more bother than worth since you have to use stripper clips to load it and its not removable.

I wouldn't walk away, I'd run. Used to be able to get those for $75. I think they are a fine rifle though. I'd rather have an SKS than an AK47.

BTW, how much ammo? That might sweeten the deal.

Well its a done deal now, I had fun shooting them, straight as an arrow. The clip is not plastic, so said its the good one, at least that's what was said on a forum about them. They threw in about 300rds, or should I say that's about whats left after testing them out.

How could I tell which version this is, Chinese or Russian?

I could be mistaken but I think the bayonet mount is cut off the chinese models.

look on the receiver directly above the trigger assembly and see what it says. Look all over the receiver for any Chinese writing. FWIW- they look Chinese from here. EDIT: then again, the location of the rear sling mount is throwing me. I'm not sure just looking at the pic.

BTW- I have a Chinese with a bayonet lug, so I don't think that makes any difference...that I know of.

I have 2 Yugos I paid $100 each for.

1 is totally stock with the bayonette & grenade launcher.

The other I redid with a folding stock & 20rd clip

They're a blast to shoot!

I have owned 5 of the SKS (Yugo) and that I payed $90 a piece for and sold all but one for 200 a piece. The guns are heavy and very easy to shoot because of the weight. There are a lot of new stocks for them to make them look a lot better. You cannot go wrong with a SKS for the money.

I like the Norincos and Russian models.
Not a big fan of the detatchable mags, I know there is one type that is pretty reliable but I prefer the stock 10 round setup.
Loading off of stripper clips is fast.
Great shooters and no they are not an AR but for 1/4 the price they are a solid reliable rifle.

As it sits now:



However...... I like my AR-15 better!

I musta gotten one of the bent pigs... it was all over the place. Not worth the $120 I paid for it, in 96, and I wasted money putting a fiberforce Dragunov stock and scope on it. From then on I just went with Winchester 94s.

Love my SKS

I got my Chinese SKS back around 1990. Kept it in the orig. cardboard box in my toolbox doing exploration geology work in northern NV for a few years. Very dusty conditions, miles of that thing banging around in the toolbox (so much the cardboard wore the bluing off in a "cardboard" pattern on the receiver cover) and NEVER failed to fire. One damn reliable weapon. Go take a look inside an FN FAL. Sure looks a lot like a SKS.
