    I know, I know it's not an AK but it's still from Mother Russia. :whistling: Here is my 54' Izzy SKS. Are there any SKS collectors here. If there is no room for SKS on this AK forum please delete.

    Oh if I only had more money to spend on rifles! I've had the opportunity to buy a Norinco and a Russian SKS within the last couple months, and couldn't do it.

    I like my AK, but I love my Yugo SKS. It's big and beefy, like me!

    I had eleven SKSs at one time, Am down to several Russians and a Yugo. Two of the Russians are the hard to find Izzys and three Tulas have laminated stocks and one a custom Fajen. Love to shoot them although the unissued are safe queens.
    Yes that is a pretty stock and I have bought guns just because of the wood.

    That's quite a fine rusky. That stock is gorgeous, I wouldn't change a thing on it. I bought mine as a franken-gun, peiced together by... someone. I'm assuming it was all norinco, all the parts looked chinease. I've done quite a bit to my SKS, trigger work, stock, sights, etc. It's a fantastic rifle, and I use it for 3-gun.

    Beautiful, as it should be. They balance really well with the wood stocks and bayonet, the tapco stocks are very forward heavy. I've seen guys use those for 3 gun with stripper clips like a champ. You can get good with them, and recharge 10 rounds faster than alot of guys can do a mag change on an AR, for $5/20 rounds, vs AR ammo prices.
