Picked up an SKS Sporter
« on: December 28, 2014, 01:22:05 PM »
sorry no pictures at the moment

The guy purchased it in '94 and then put it in the closet "just in case" the box fell apart at some point so he packed it all up in a plastic case and put the magazines "somewere safe" so safe there still there  :))

I was looking for one to thread for a suppressor but since its LNIB unfired I don't know if I'd be throwing away money by moding it but then again I don't buy too many safe queens

Sounds nice.  Post some pics.  94 was the last year they were imported.

Looking forward to pics! 

Just curious why you would want to spend all that cash on the stamp and suppressor for a rifle chambered in 7.62x39.  I suppose the same reason people do it for 300 whisper but in either case, it seems like such a light bullet would have rather low ballistic energy.  Would you have to load your own sub-sonic ammo or does someone manufacture it?

I load my own ammo the way it is so subsonic 7.62x39 ammo is no problem at all. Looking at having a suppressed hog rifle and as states get with the program suppressed 200 yard deer rifle.

Hey Jack....    I'm really interested in your x39 subsonic load data etc.  Mind posting a thread on the subject in the reloading section?

Interesting. Thanks  thumb1
I guess you're down south. We don't have feral hogs up here in the Pacific Northwest  :)

I travel down south for Hogs and may find myself in KY soon for an extended stay. At some point I'll put some info up on quiet X39 ammo but at the moment all my notes and gear are packed up.

LC, here's a target scan I had showing that cast plinker I make with 12 gr. of 2400 powder.  Never chronied it, but it's gotta be close to sub-sonic. 
The group size seemed to be getting better the lower I went, but this was the lowest load I've tried so far, and it won't cycle the action, which is actually pretty handy for my reloadable brass.  (and for noise suppression)

I'ma hafta try scaling them down even more and see how they do.  Be cool if they got even better.  jd
