Given the california rule of non detachable mags and 10 rounds, why shouldn't i just get a cheaper and more accurate SKS? Really what's the difference in Cali?

...cause those of us who saw the writing on the wall (or in the AB) stocked up on all sorts of magazines, pre2k. And MonsterMan has graced us with his quite usable non-pistolgrip.

But the correct answer is that no collection is complete without several of both.

Funny, most of the AK type rifles I have shot were NO fun at all. Once in a while I find one that shoots good, but it's the exception.

I live my SKS rifles. I have two, one russian and a yugo.

I actually prefer my SKS over my AK. The main reason why I went with my Saiga was for the detectable mags.

And it's the only one I've even enjoyed shooting, including my own.

For the most part, I'm very unimpressed with the AK.

.... Does anyone know if a Chicom MAK 90 is on the list?

I have a great shooter but am not sure if I can bring it to CA. If not, is there a way to bring it in? Could I just build it with a new receiver?

I do believe the Mak 90 is on the list. Those were flying off the shelf here in 1999. I believe they were selling for like 400 bucks.

I'll doublecheck and post if I'm wron about them being listed.

I am also not a big fan of the the AK47, owned one and wasn't impressed. Though I will admit I have a fast growing interest in the AK74.

I love my SKS. The only downside I can think of comparing the SKS to the AK47 is that apparently the SKS is more likely to slamfire which can lead to a world of trouble. Once again I heard, if you stay away from soft primers your SKS will be less likely to slamfire.

I had an AK type firearm, but sold it. It wasn't all that comforable or nice to shoot. I do have two Russian SKSs, and they're lovely little rifles. Feel great, handle the kick nicely, and personally I think look pretty.
Irvington has a Russian one in stock last time I was there. I would have bought it, but I don't need three of 'em.

Of course the AK74 is a whole 'nother deal! :D
