Our Assessment: The SKS platform is one of the most trending rifles on the market today.  I honestly don’t know why, whether they are riding the waves of the AK47 world, video game publicity, or just sought over by collectors looking for rifles that have increased in value tremendously over the last decade due to their banned import status.  Regardless of the reason, the SKS is a rugged, durable, time tested, and beloved rifle.  Built on a military grade receiver along with all its parts as Chinese Imports gloriously do, this rifle will make a wonderful new plinking machine at your next stop to the firing range. This particular SKS-M is in Fine condition, and will give you years of excellent service at the range! The AK47 detachable magazine configuration will make the experience all the more joyous than your typical fixed or duckbill mag SKS.  Every collection needs one, two, or even 10 SKS rifles so don’t miss your chance on this one! Good Luck!
