Milsurp Aquisition In These Modern Times, Russian SKS

Post by jaytex1969 »

At the end of our last episode, we had picked up the 91/30, the M44 and 3 spam cans.

Returning to town and inspecting the haul, it was decided to let the 91/30 and one can go. We were happy for a day or two...

Today, I discovered someone wanting to trade a Russian SKS, which derailed my "big plans".

We met and we both were satisfied with the offerings. He got the M44, a spam can and some dinero.

I got a 1956 (Tula?) SKS.

After all said and done, I ultimately ended up with the SKS and one can of 54r for 7 bills and a tank of gas.

Deal? Travesty? You decide.

It's very clean and looks well cared for. I haven't torn it down yet, just popped it open enough to make sure that the moving parts were there and shiny.

I thought all the SKS rifles this late had chromed bores. I've not cleaned it yet, but it does not look chromed to me.

martin 08 quote from above source
To be sure that you are getting a chrome bore, don't buy any Yugoslavian models, or pre-1952 Russian. All others are chromed.
To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.
