Hmmm I guess this argument is coming up a lot on youtube saying which one is better.

IMO I would have to say the SKS due to its accuracy even if its a para. Plus being the older the brother it demands a little respect from AK-47 :)

(yes my answer is biased duh lol)

WHAT?!!! FROM UNDER WHICH EX SOVIET BLOCK BACKWARD COUNTRY DID YOU CRAWL BRO?!!!!!!!

The AKM and SKS are OCEANS APART in every aspect!
Just because they happen to share a caliber, that doesn't put them on par with each others. Your claim is nonsense.

Its like saying an old analog cell phone is on par with an iphone?!!

From a military tactical standpoint, the AKM is a far superior weapon, it can be utilized more effectively in battle and much faster to deploy than a bulging, bulky Peter the Great spear!

The two rifles are not comparable IMHO

I had a thread like this a while back. I voted AK-47 over SKS, but SKS was found to have advantages over the AK-47 in ways I never would have figured out, ever, such as more accuracy per shot.

For the love of God, the AKM was not designed for accuracy! Its designed for intense combat in somewhat close quarters, and particularly to be carried by mechanized infantry men and tank crews.

Nonetheless, its accuracy is not as bad as you guys make it out to be... its no sniper rifle and they have an SVD for that purpose.

Friend and I had a competition today, fire one round/drop mag/insert new mag/fire again for the purpose of gauging reload speed

My SKS and I reloaded and were back on target quite a bit quicker.

And of course, because I did it once, it is a valuable statistic XD

OP, are you talking about in Kali or the real world? I could see your argument if you're talking in terms of CA. (BB, semi-auto, 10rnd mags)

This is a big factor to take into consideration.

Due to the "Californication Effect" that has to take place, it is pretty much impossible to "tactical-up" an SKS up to the level that you can where it is on par with the AK-47, such as putting a higher magazine capacity than 10 rounds (no fixed round magazine of over 10 rounds allowed for semi-automatic rifle).

An SKS, by itself in stock configuration, is perfect to comply with CA dips**t gun laws, but doesn't have modern amenities such as detachable magazines like the AK-47 does, which the latter can easily accomplish by going "featureless," which is something the SKS basically cannot do, since it is for the most part stuck as a fixed magazine rifle.
Even the Norinco SKS with detachable magazines that takes AK MAGS, while being a "featureless" rifle, is on the CA ban list of "assault weapons."

But you still need a "tool" to do it (unless it's featureless). Stripper clips are pretty quick once you get used to them.

I'm not arguing that people arent fast at stripper clips, but for the sake of argument a bullet works great as a tool. And even better which I havnt done yet go featureless and run 75round preban drums you legally own, and you know we all own atleast 2 from our highschool college days lol

you would really take a rifle that only has a 10 round fixed mag that needs to be loaded by clips into battle?? i would much rather take something that can accept 30 round detectable mags and has a pistol grip into the fight

You can get an SKS cheaper then an AK here in Cali so you have a more accurate rifle for less money. Plus the only advantage the AK has over the SKS is when it is in full auto which is something that we here can't have so we have to press the trigger every time. SKS wins.

The video game kiddies just keep on coming.

1) Cheaper? Maybe.

2) More accurate? Fail.

3) Only advantage full auto? Fail.

4) Move along now.

Methinks OP needs to spend more time actually shooting.

There have been 1-2 moa AKs in 7.62x39
74 out of the box probably a little more accurate than SKS

SKS cons off the top of my head. fixed 10rnd box mag, weight, slow reload, 2-3 moa
AK cons, 3-4 moa

As far as the AK replacing the SKS, I'd have to suggest that 2 things made that happen.

1 was mag capacity (which is more or less moot in California)

2 the AK was probably a LOT cheaper to make, since it was designed to be.

Yeah must admit damn BFE3 gave the SKS' new life and legends which are way wrong.

Well your only slow with stripper clips if you don't practice and clean them out. Magazines...different story. Get one bad magazine and that will screw up your whole cycle and ROF.

Btw the AKM Replaced the AK-47 that replaced the SKS. No disrespect to the AK-47 but the SKS did see action on the Eastern front, korea, and Vietnam and those aren't exactly your range conditions are they? Nope that is why SKS is just as good if not better than the Ak-47.

Bud you cant be serious, lmao. Ak runs circles around sks!
Ak I shoot standing 300 yards no prob w iron sights.
AK I can break all major components down in 3-5 secs.
AK I can run 4-100 round mags
AK I can run dry as all hell
AK has seen 1000x more battle than the AR, m16, sks combined.
The AK is a million times superior to ANY sks.
Do you own any type of AK?

12-01-2011, 9:41 AM
Use too. I put my m-16 in the armory and grabbed and ak-47 while I was in Iraq and I loved it.

Its not how many rounds you can put down range its 'One shot one kill' I will take my 10 clip over your 75 drum any day of the week knowing the Ak-47 AOEF and such.


I can take my SKS apart in 3-5 seconds either and SKS still being used today as well. In fact saw the news a few nights ago boys in Afghan found huge weapon caches of SKS used by the Taliban. I have thrown dirt on it, shot crappy surplus ammo and it eats it all and asks for more.

Ask your self this...why did all the Comm Block countries who built Aks build SKS' as well? Must have liked it or thought it was pretty right?. Romanians, Albanians, Poles, E. Germany, China, Vietnam, N.Korea built both :)

Deep down inside I am spewing common sense not nonsense. Look all this up and you will see. Books are all over this stuff.

Remember Soviet Doctrine was mass production not quality. Why you think they changed the SKS over to the Ak-47? easier to produce, less expensive and larger ammo capacity yet they sacrificed accuracy. STG= Ak-47 and that's pretty much what I need to know about the Ak.

Viet cong had a hold of both yet the Americans quickly respected the SKS as a solid little carbine and its accuracy.

The one you have beats the one you don't. :cool: Past that; it's all relative to what your priorities are for the weapon to actually DO. Plinking? Repelling hordes of looters and rioters from the roof of your local Kwike-Mart? Or just looking "cool"? Do you want a rifle in other caliber options than 7.62x39? Or is it a matter of just having a solid, dependable, reasonably accurate carbine that will put enough holes in whatever is bothering you well enough to make it stop doing that?

For MOST of the above, the SKS is a good option as well as the AK family of weapons. For SOME of the above, the AK is the better (or only) choice. But either one beats throwing rocks 'n garbage at the "problem", so it honestly is a matter of get what you can first, and then get the other later and have both.

Hey Zach if you do not know that the SKS is more accurate then you don't know facts. Period. I bet $200 you can't find an article that says AK are and have been far more accurate then an SKS. But you can find tons of books and articles that say that the SKS has always been more accurate. As far as the price it is not a maybe it is also a fact. If you can find me an AK47 for $250-300 here in California I'll give you my SKS.

Same reason the US switched from a Full "battle rifle" to a smaller assault rifle. Getting more lead downrange faster.

Now the switch to the M16...that was just nonsense.

And if its not i'll give you..... Heck no I aint giving away one of my ak's lmao i'll give you nod of respect,
762x39 is useless after 300 yards so both ak n sks can hit a target at 300 yards so both are killers... If you guys only defense is accuracy get a m1a1, ptr91, saiga 308, rem700, barret, mosin, ar15, m1garand, All of them will put the sks to shame in long n short range accuracy.
i'm not even gonna waste my thumbs no more typing about this, anyone that owns both an ak n sks knows which is better over all.

Sorry for the thread derail, but how are the ergonomics on a featureless AK? I've never handled a featureless one. Is it comfortable to grip and feel secure in the hand?
I own or have owned several versions of both platforms. IMHO the AK is just a better rifle. Less moving parts to go wrong. Those who say the SKS is more accurate should take into consideration the barrel length and weight of the platform. 2 of the benefits I find in the AK are it's compactness and light weight are what help the SKS acheive better acuraccy.
The SKS was accepted as a service weapon because the AK wasn't ready yet. When the AK was ready guess what won? I like both weapons but if I had to carry one into battle, AK is my first choice hands down.

They're gas operated semi-automatic(at least for our purposes) rifles of soviet design chambered in 7.62x39. You're correct. In those limited areas they are very much alike.

However the receivers, ergonomics, trigger mechanisms, bolt /carriers, bolt locking mechanism, gas system, magazine type/capacity, method of loading, weight, length, safety mechanism, bolt hold open(or lack there of)....etc. are all completely different.

If they're related they aren't siblings. I'd call them distant cousins at best.

Your average SKS is probably going to be a bit more accurate than your average AK, but in reality its likely a wash becuase you're only going to see the results on a bench. With the rubbish sights on both, for practical shooting they are going to be the same. Same with reliability and the rest.

The SKS does get the nod for prone shooting however. If you've ever tried to do this with an AK you know what I mean.

yeah you are right about that. First time I shot an AK in prone was really weird and funky for me. My bread and butter with the AK was in kneeling position I dunno why but it felt more sturdy and I had more bone on bone contact.

But keep in mind not all SKS' are the same either. I mean some countries really made some junk ones like the Romanians and Albanians. But yea you are correct they will shoot and be very reliable.

love to but I don't have an AK I will one day. When I do I can take some vids and we shall see who wins. Who knows maybe they both can win or maybe they both can loose.

Wayer the ak is designed to go into water, due to the gas tube n piston design,
Sks not designed to do so and fills up with water all the way thru.

Knowing what I know about your passion for WWII rifles, I think you should get a Mosin Nagant in 7.62x54 before an AK. That's Vasily Zaitsev legendary sniper rifle!

If you don't know who that is & don't have patience for books, watch the movie Enemy at the Gate.

One shot one kill?
Bud c'mon
I dont think you really have too much experience with the ak platform. Thats awesome you picked one up in iraq but an ak can hit anything an sks can!
Your sks's are very nice but theyre not on par! You can argue all day but you know deep down that your spewing nonsense.

Ak can hit everything Sks can, right? Well, so can Sks hit everything Ak can. 200-300 yards...after that both are not practical. You may still hit a man size target, but accuracy is out of question st that distance. Within 200 (+/-some) yards, BOTH will work the same, is that right?

Capacity, mags, etc don't matter in Ca (limited to 10 shots only). Any other benefit AK has over Sks? Ak is very reliable platform - I've heard this many times - but nobody says Sks jams, or it has relibility issues! The longer barrel may yield better accuracy/distance shots, like some have mentioned. Also, if your going to use it for HD, SHTF purpose, it's hard to justify using an AK, vs a mere Sks to law. Same results, but one is "known" as "world's most popular assault rifle".

Just my 2 cents.
