My First Russian SKS

Post by res45 »

Ever since I got my first SKS I've always wanted a nice Russian SKS but something else always came up or the money was short and then the prices went sky-high so I just gave up and settled for what I had. Well I guess sometimes it is worth the wait and good things happen to those that do.

To make a long story short I got if from a friend that had four of them stashed away in the back of the safe room. It's a 1952r black bolt refurb that has never been fired since it came in country. He originally gave $189 for the rifles so I just basically doubled his money and now it's mine. I still haven't cleaned it yet but I soon will and put some rds. downrange to see how it shoots.

Thanks I waited a long time to get a rifle like that and when I least expected it, it fell right into my hands.
