For any guys who see and read this if you are low budget like me, disabled and living on severely fixed income an SKS is a great cheap gun with tons of accessories on the market.
This is my factory 26 Chinese SKS with ATI folding stock in destroyer grey, with bi-pod foregrip, Cree 2000 lumin flashlight, 40 rnd mag, red laser sight, red dot and single point sling.
It shoots great, 1.25″ groups at 70 yards and that was a 4 shot group with first round flyer (see picture).
Thanks Glenn. The SKS is indeed a good choice for a low budget rifle, unfortunately it is not nearly as inexpensive as it once was.
