    SKS's aren't meant to be tacticool'd out. Save up for an AR if you want to add gadgets.

    optics :mamoru:

    Just buy an AK right off the bat and don't gay up an sks. It'll be more functional, cost the same, and you won't get laughed at by the good shooters on the range for your tapco/sportsmans guide creation.

    AK would still be the better choice in the brush

    Generally they all function the same. They all have their hiccups and little quirks like any mass-made commie rifle. If you're gonna hack it up into a bubba special, just get the cheapest one you can find. Don't mess up a nice one. :wtc:

    Don't buy an SKS to fuck it up. It's a nice, cheap fun rifle the way it is. If you want to fuck with something get an AR, or a 10/22 if you're broke.

    I would get an AK any day over an SKS. I got a YUGO SKS about 5yrs ago for $189 and it sucks. Only reason I didn't get an AK is because I'm in Commiefornia and that was before the stripped lower craze

    Nornico SKS-M is normally at the top of my list. Pretty pricy though.

    Yugo's are generally the cheapest since they were the most recent lot to be sold as surplus rifles. Biggest difference is they dont have chrome lined bores.

    But yeah, get a cheap wasr if you want to tapco fuck it.
