View Full Version : Ordered some 7.62x39 yesterday

Thing is I have nothing chambered in that round. AK47 seems like the simplest solution. Also looking at 7.62x39 AR uppers. $700 max budget.

Would I have fun with an SKS?

A SKS can be a lot of fun! So can AK Featureless Dumping Mags like a Free Man! You can learn a lot about the gun building it yourself. I suggest a Nodak Spud Reciever for First Time Builders.

Damn build advocates, can never get away from you guys! Not building crap, sorry.

I never liked the SKS until I bought one. Feels like a great rifle. Buy one for cheap and shoot the crap out of it and don't think twice about it.

Do it right and you can get an AK and an SKS for $700.

You can get Saigas already half converted now, I am considering another one myself.

What kind of 7.62x39 ammo did you order?

Try one, you will not be disappointed. I bought my first SKS in '91 from Turner's. Chinese and buried in cosmoline, it was the best $122 I ever spent. I love that freaking gun. Accurate as hell. Not one FTF or FTE. This is the last gun I would ever sell.

For $700 you can buy an SKS and another 2K rounds of ammo. Great thing to have.

The Yugo SKS is a great rifle, so are the Russian built. Problem is they are getting pricey, though I still run across them for $300.

I paid $200 for my Yugos about 7 years ago. That was then, this is now.

Truth be told this guy has caught my eye:

If I'm stuck with 10 rounds anyway, might as well get a beefy bench shooter and blow my whole budget.
