Not a Kalashnikov but a Simonov
I know, I know it's not an AK but it's still from Mother Russia. :whistling: Here is my 54' Izzy SKS. Are there any SKS collectors here. If there is no room for SKS on this AK forum please delete.

Oh if I only had more money to spend on rifles! I've had the opportunity to buy a Norinco and a Russian SKS within the last couple months, and couldn't do it.

I like my AK, but I love my Yugo SKS. It's big and beefy, like me!

I had eleven SKSs at one time, Am down to several Russians and a Yugo. Two of the Russians are the hard to find Izzys and three Tulas have laminated stocks and one a custom Fajen. Love to shoot them although the unissued are safe queens.
Yes that is a pretty stock and I have bought guns just because of the wood.

That's quite a fine rusky. That stock is gorgeous, I wouldn't change a thing on it. I bought mine as a franken-gun, peiced together by... someone. I'm assuming it was all norinco, all the parts looked chinease. I've done quite a bit to my SKS, trigger work, stock, sights, etc. It's a fantastic rifle, and I use it for 3-gun.

Thanks guys. I plan on keeping her the way she is. Here is another picture of me shooting it.

Beautiful, as it should be. They balance really well with the wood stocks and bayonet, the tapco stocks are very forward heavy. I've seen guys use those for 3 gun with stripper clips like a champ. You can get good with them, and recharge 10 rounds faster than alot of guys can do a mag change on an AR, for $5/20 rounds, vs AR ammo prices.
