one of the pawn shops got a sks i forget the brand name starts with a "N". anyway they have a sks with a 30 mag detachable clip. you think its worth $225? the but stock is wood. im thinking the dragnov stock would look sweet on it, but is $225 too much???

From what I recall....ya can't hunt with that 30 round magazine....

My first gun was a SKS....now that I am "seasoned" I wouldn't shoot with one of those things. Great gun for recoil, but there is NO WAY you are going to be able to mount a scope to it without going through some trouble.....and if it has glass now, the probabilitiy of it not being scoped correctly would be high (and probably the reason it's in the shop anyway). Short of drill/tapping the receiver, you won't be able to keep the glass zeroed!

Mine is chinese and strictly a recreational gun..
I got it for $99 about 12 yrs ago.

Plenty capable of missouri whitetails, but has about the ballistic capability
of a .30-30..

Yup I got one about 10 years ago for the same price and truth be told you could do the same today.

Now if it was a Russian rifle....

They are very fun rifles to shoot and would make a great "brush gun"

If it starts with an "N" it's most likely a Norinco, which is the Chinese version. I like them just fine, but the Russian ones are better quality.
As for value, it's been too long since I priced one so I have no idea.

I dont have a detach for mine either.. just use the stripper clip and load 10 shots
at a time.. quickly too.

BTW.. I have NEVER cleaned this gun in any way... and never had it fail.

purty good action for $99 bucks.

cant help you much but they are right on the 30 round mag you can only have 11 shells counting a loaded chamber in missouri while hunting deer.

i can't help you on the value of the gun need jackjr to chime in he is probley the expert on military guns here on the site he really enjoys them and knows alot about them.

to me that seems high when you can get a new savage for just a little more than that in several calabers but thats not saying the "value" of that gun isn't correct i just thing you could do better

yeah i beleive it was norinco. im not useing this for a deer gun. i have a win mod 70 in .270 and a mod98k mauser 8mm for deer. i just need a cheap semi-auto assualt rifle becuase i been having problems at night with tweakers. im armed with my .45 and 2 shotguns with slugs and buckshot, but im lookin for an assult rifle for more protection. those ar-15's are a little pricey for me.
thanks, my cousin told me to stay away from ***** products and stay with the yukoslavians. i thaught id ask about this before i make a desion.
thanks again.
