Russian gun maker Molot had a very attractive looking SKS rifle on display at Moscow ARMS & Hunting ’12 expo. The rifle (which is of new manufacture, not old surplus) features a carbon fibre stock, picatinny rail, muzzle brake and a factory magazine. I am pleased they went with a traditional “hunting” stock, rather than a tactical style pistol gripped stock that look out of place on an SKS in my opinion. My only complaint would be the long 21.5″ barrel.
