SKS #1 Survival Rifle!

Just wanted to post some pics of my SKS Rifles.

The whole gang L-R
1. Russian with Butler Creek stock, Williams Firesights, steel vented handguard, Albanian bolt carrier & Muzzle brake.
2. Chinese with ATI dragunov stock, Williams Firesights, Albanian bolt carrier.
3. Russian with original (extended) stock, Mojo rear pep sight, Ramline vented handguard, Albanian bolt carrier, bayonet, cleaning kit & rod.
4. Chinese with original stock (painted with black textured paint & 2" extension), original sights, Albanian bolt carrier, bayonet, cleaning kit & rod.
I've given them all trigger jobs, nice & smooth now!



If you can't survive with one of these, then fodder you will be!

Yes, Terry P the SKS rifle is 7.62x39 and a very prefered cartridge for what they are intended for. The SKS was built to take into the mud, water, and any kind of enviroment and still function @ 400 meters.

My personal rifle of survival choice would actually be a Ruger 10/22 or a Bolt Action rifle in .22 LR since they are much quieter so an enemy can not detect position should you be hunkered down in the woods while surviving #1 cartridge of choice for poachers for this reason. I can carry several 1,000 rounds of .22 LR where as other calibers would weigh more, hence carrying less ammo etc.

Just give me a Ruger 10/22 carbine....

Re: SKS #1 Survival Rifle!

sure do like the sks series............use to be a bargin but they sure have gone up in price....

i like that little "paratrooper" model that was a chop job and imported for a while-----no historical accuracy but never the less an interestin' little booger...........

for an obsolete design that had a short service life, it sure has been around the block(or is it commie block) a time or two............

i honestly think in my part of the world it has replaced the 30-30 in popularity as far as a farm and ranch pickup gun..................
