i can't decid on a Ak or SKS i wuld realy like an AK but the sks is half the price.
depends on the country either one are from...just pick one and make sure it isnt a peice of shit, otherwise its just a name not a weapons system.
The SKS has a bayonet, whoopie. Ever know anyone to use one? I spent 2 years in combat and no one I know ever used one, except to dig a hole.
The AK is shorter, lighter, and easier to handle. Con't by the crap about capacity, it's a matter of magazine, both can have same cap. The AK from Russia are superior. Invented there by Kalishnikov. It is NOT just a name. Which is used as the battle rifle of most countries? The AK. This one is a no brainer
ether a yugo sks or a russian AK was the ones i would like to get.
Well my friend, The SKS has alot smaller magazine, only 10 rounds and is a Semi-Automatic but it does have a bayonet attached which makes it awesome in any right. However for what I could figure you are looking for, I would suggest the AK-47, easy to make full-auto not to mention the possibility of the drum magazine and you seem to have an attachment to it. Ill do a write-up on the SKS for you and you can decide for your self.
thanks for being so helpfull
If you can get a real russian AK... GET IT!!!! they are worth ALOT of money. The firearms ban of the early 90's prohibits the import of rifles from russia.
You can find a yugo sks anywhere for a couple hundered bucks. I have 3. I also have a russian sks in the origional box which is worth at least 5 times as much because they are so hard to find.
Many AK's and varients claim to be from different countries, but they are imported here and assembled here using aftermarket U.S parts
go with the ak, i havent heard much good about the sks and the last few ive seen have had a ton of creep on the trigger.
that "creep" is called cosmoline.
it comes on most surplus rifles. they put it on them to prevent the rifle from rusting and deteariating. it is on more than the trigger. you have to disasymbol the entire firearm and clean thoroughly.
they are both fine weapons, but very different (besides the caliber)
Really my uncle bought a new trigger for his ar cuz it had what he called creep where u pull back the trigger and there is some slack then it gets to a point where you feel it lock in place and u pull it any further it will fire. if you pull it back past that point and doesn't fire the distance you pull it past that point until it discharges he refered to as creep. Sry just didn't sound like we were talking about the same thing
my bad. I thought you meant to type "crap" and was just giving you shit. you're right though. the sks's are gonna have mil spec triggers on them and won't be as sensitive since they are surplus rifles.
I like both weapons as I said above. I depends what you are using it for. I collect all kinds of rifles and own 3 sks's. they are pretty cool in their own right. I think they are also more accurate than my ak past 100 yds. cause of their longer barrel.
I own 2 sks's: a cheap chinese one and a russian still in the box. I have never shot an AK but the sks is cheap,very accurate, and fun to shoot. As Reaper308 said above, the trigger is the least sensitive of every gun I own.
Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the sks a rifle and the ak a carbine?
If so, comparisons don't make sense.
Also, Isn't the sks a fore runner of the ak that was abandoned by the Russians?
The sks entered full production for the Soviet Army in 1946 as a safeguard against failure of the more revolutionary Kalshnikov. The sks was an efficient weapon if somewhat heavy, and gave adequate power at the average ranges for modern warfare, which by Soviet standards was 200-400yards. It had an integral 10 round magazine which was filled either singly or by 5 round chargers,and a rearward folding integral bayonet. It proved simple to operate, robust and easy to maintain, BUT IT WAS SIMPLY NOT IN THE SAME CLASS AS THE AK-47 AND WAS PHASED OUT OF PRODUCTION IN THE LATE 1950'S.(From a book called GUNS by David Miller.)
i would go with the AK-47 like said it depends on where the weapon comes from but if it came from russia its probly higher quality, plus the AK is probly the most durable weapon there is but not the most accurate
