New member from Iowa
« on: January 18, 2022, 11:21:49 PM »
I'm Mike, have had the milsurp rifle bug since the mid 90's.
Had a bunch of SKS's prior to the internet, got rid of them, now buying them back at 5 times the price. nea1

Now that I've slipped back into the SKS arena, trying to learn more about them.

Hopefully I can figure out what I have with time.
Thanks

Welcome from Kansas City, MO (your southern neighbor, LOL.)
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.

Welcome from Washington! I grew up in Minnesota and had relatives in Iowa.

Glad you made it in!

3 Chinese, a 7,10 and 11 millions series, all /26\ factory.
2 Yugo's a H series 59/66 and a C series 59.

One of the Chinese, the 10 million was given to me by one of my wifes uncles 3 years ago, who brought it back from VN in 1970.

The other 4 rifles I've bought of traded for in the last 4 months here locally in Iowa.
