Made a little score today, ParaParka
« on: June 08, 2021, 06:14:51 PM »
I first saw this rifle for $600 on a local magazine website for $600. One very poor picture. It looked like a black plastic stock typical 16 inch bubba.
A few weeks went buy and it pops back up with a few better pics for $550 with 100 rounds on stripper clips. This time he mentions its in a K Sport stock. I took a better looks at the pictures and saw the front sight and bayonet lug mods looked spot on. Now I'm excited. Call the number and ask about the importer stamp. He says no import stamp. I tell him about it possibly being a Para Parka from KSI. He offers to send more pics and sure enough it is a KSI import. I call him back, offer $500 and he says deal.
I have been gathering parts to build the very same clone and was waiting on a local guy for the parkerizing. Now I have a bunch of parts to build something else.

Nice Lowell. Use the other parts to build a big sister Parka (20" barrel) They did make them you know. :)
My Avatar is a pic of the real "Ghost" SKS in honor of xxxsks(joe). It is a pic of a fully decked out SKS in Capco hunter's kit. This was mine, the only other pic I had ever seen of one was Joe's.

Congrats!!  You have me a bit green with envy, especially at that price.  A Parka Para is on my short list.  thumb1

Greatguns that may eventually happen but for right now it's going in this zombie looking stock I got in a trade. That's why I need the cheesegrater your sending me.

Thanks running-man. It  just shows that the deals are still out there. I have one other what I call quality commercial and it's an SKS S.

Good point. I can protect those cows from those theiving aliens! When I was growing up we actually had a Holstein.

Sweet catch you have there.  Love those stocks.  Very comfortable to shoot and not bad on the price either.  Thanks for sharing.

Very nice score. What are your plans for the rifle? My green Parka Para is literally my favorite shooting SKS.

Just going to enjoy it. I have very small collection and this adds to it nicely.

That sounds like a good plan. I thought you were going to strip it for parts for another build. Green Parka Paras are pretty uncommon.
