  • The Simonov Self Loading Carbine aka SKS

    Since my friend started a Mosin thread, I thought I would start a thread on another fine weapon, the SKS. Discuss and enjoy!
    1. Even if you could make something idiot proof they would just go out and build a better idiot.
    2. The road to hell is paved by a hard working asphalt crew of meddlesome legislators.

    Well gee whiz. It seems that there aren't too many fans of a reliable yet short lived carbine. At least in WP countries, its use was pretty short lived. IIRC, it did see quite a bit of service in VC and NVA hands.

      Yeah, I don't see anybody "feeling the love" for the SKS either.
      Which is too bad..It is a nice entry level priced semi-auto.

        I'm not interested much about the gun's specifics but if anyone has some infos on the SKS dotation in NVA and VC units during the VN war let me know!

          Yeah it is a pretty simple rifle and yes they are excellent beginner rifles. Decent caliber, semi-auto, and the ammo is relatively cheap. The family has 2 at home.

              Early Chinese IIRC, I heard these were the better of the bunch.
