I wish someone would've told me these were so addictive. P.S. If they start SKS Anonymous I'm not going to a meeting unless they sell/ trade SKS's.

Ahem.

In case you haven't  noticed, this IS sks anonymous.


BYO coffee and donuts.

Addiction.....  rockon thumb1 

Call the addiction hotline....NOW!!  We will "ENABLE" the addiction, coffee and dounuts be dammed, lead, gunpowder and all things that go bang.


Coffee and doughnuts are for after you run out of lead and gunpowder rofl2
I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse......

Leave the gun take the cannoli.

I said I was an addict........I didn't say I had a problem

RE "experts": since joining SKS-F I've learned that one (amongst the many) of most value-added aspects of the site - it's a place where a bunch of folks can sort through practically any opinion or view - and not end up going into butt hurt tailspin. Collective EXPERTise.

That was the main intention when we founded this site back in '14.  Just to have a nice place where we could consolidate info, gather data, and simply talk w/o getting wound around the axle like you see on so many other sites around the web. 

Other sites, especially SKSBoards (AKA the 'other' boards) would have exactly that where one of the good ole' boys would set you straight and tell you how ridiculous your question was, berate you for calling it a 'Norinco', remind you that you didn't introduce yourself, belittle you because either you weren't there when they were imported so your opinion is irrelevant or you don't have 3 East Germans in your collection so your opinion is irrelevant, and finally pooh pooh the gun you just bought because it had a mismatched receiver cover.   :-X

We finally had enough and SKS-Files is the result.  thumb1

Plus, the forum's layout, archives, search, photo uploading, etc. is tip top. Great web design choice!

We intended the SKS-Files.com to be as easy to use as possible so it could compliment our SKSGuide.com.  The info on the Guide can be discussed in the forum and any breakthroughs we make via discussions on the forum should get moved to the guide.  Unfortunately, some portions of the SKSGuide has fallen far behind in respect to the most up to date data and observations on the forums and others have simply never been finished.  Life gets in the way and working long hours for free (along with very little recognition and the occasional rotten tomato tossed our way because someone simply refuses to open their eyes and look at the data) just doesn't appeal to that many people, go figure.  chuckles1

We will get there, but it's certainly a journey!  thumb1
