Howdy from Arizona
« on: March 08, 2021, 08:10:10 PM »
Howdy all from northern Arizona. I was raised in the heavily wooded Southeast, so hunting with iron sighted carbines is the way I like to go. Brush guns like the 30-30 and the SKS are hunting favorites of mine. I used to own a Chinese SKS a while back, sold it a while back because the thing rattled like a tin can every time I shook it and the parts were pretty worn. I now own an older Russian which is much nicer to shoot; see the picture below for a look at her.

Im pretty ignorant about the SKS and semi-auto weapons in general, so Im mostly here to learn from those of yall who have been shooting these things for a long time.


I've got some oceanfront property in Arizona, you buy that I'll throw in the golden gate for free

Howdy from the Live free Or Die State of NH. SKS's are good rifles for hunting in my experience. A little faster and flatter shooting than a 30-30 win. imho. Good for bear,coyotes,deer and boar.
When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns.

Welcome from Ford rofl rofl

Sorry, couldn't resist.
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 to the site. 

Enjoy taking it to the range - mine has been great shooters.  Low recoil and functioned flawlessly.
