I know the SKS is not as accurate as the AR-15, but when it comes down to the cost of the rifle itself and ammo, it's a pretty inexpensive rifle to keep around. Any suggestions/advice on SKS's?
Fun, cheap, and solid. I've loved the one's I've had. Bought, built, and sold a few. Here's my last one. All Tapco stuff to make it 922r compliant. I ended up moving the red dot to the hand guard to maintain zero while cleaning.


Looking to get another one soon so I can throw an SGWorks bullpup conversion on it. Maybe a little Christmas gift to myself. Like this....

I have heard that the SKS from Norinco is good because the barrel is chrome lined, the Yugo is not. Other than that I think that they are about the same as far as build quality goes.
Why does everyone tapco their SKS, I love the wood stocks. I know they are heavy, but hell that's what makes them great. If you run out of ammo, beat whatever you are shooting to death.
This is just my opinion, but I hate when people tapco Russian guns, but they are your guns, so go crazy.

I too was wondering when 'Tapco'ing out your SKS' became the 'in' thing to do.

It's not all about the a aesthetics for me. It's lighter, adjustable, got a couple of rails for a foregrip, scope, etc. It just makes it a little more viable and up to date. I don't even have an sks, but if I get one, I will put that stock on it. Plus yes I do think it looks pretty cool. I do love wood on my hunting bolt rifles.

Since you already have a bolt gun in .223 it would be nice to keep the ammo interchangable and not have to stock another caliber.
Where are you finding uppers for $350+? I've only been able to find them for around $500+ and a few for $450+ occasionally. I don't know very many sites to shop around from though outside of a search engine. However, I am quite attracted to DPMS.

You get what you pay for and this is no exception. If you need customer service and immediate response then you'll pay more and order from a larger outfit that is known for customer service. PSA doesn't stock items per sey and that is how they are able to offer lower prices. They take orders and then order from their manufacturers to fulfill orders. The lead time to order items is clearly marked on their website and most people who have had problems fail to read those because some lead times can be weeks instead of days. That being said I've placed quite a few orders with PSA over the years and have nothing negative to say. I haven't needed to call or talk to anyone but I don't see them as being that sort of resource anyway. I use them to get stuff as cheap as possible when I don't need it right away. Place the order and then forget about it until it shows up. Then when it shows up I'm happy for the savings I received.

A little secret about PSA. Go on their industry forum on AR15.com and ask about your order number, it will usually get shipped that day.
