    I guess I could get one for pretty cheap. :dunno:

    So what would it be good for? How much does a decent one cost? I shot my uncle's a lot over the years and I like it. :coold:

    Good for plinking, taking deer, good truck gun. Good grade yugo one is like $150, the ChiCom SKS-D's(accept AK mags from the factory) are usually over $200 and may as well get an AK at that point.

    The only issue with SKS's is people try to convert them to take high capacity mags and AK mags when you do that they become unreliable, with the standard fixed 10 round mag they have no issues, the chinese also made a model that took AK mags from the factory those work great too but about the same price as a cheap AK. I like the yugoslav and russian ones best but there all good.
