typically in the $250 to $500 range. If I were you, I would shoot the hell out of it as you can get 7.62X39 ammo by the crate for pretty cheap, ammoman.com is selling 1000rds for $219 and they pay the freight.

It's comparable

Handloading will help the 'x39 do a lot more than the surplus ammo can do.

It will never give you 100% of what a .30-30 can do with the heaviest bullets, but pretty close.

That it would,

has yours been modified for detachable mags or does it retain it's internal mag?

SKS

Early Russian models had spring-loaded firing pins, most variants of the SKS have a free floating firing pin within the bolt. Because of this design, care must be taken during cleaning (especially after long storage) to ensure that the firing pin does not stick in the forward position within the bolt. SKS firing pins that are stuck in the forward position have been known to cause accidental "slamfires" (uncontrolled automatic fire that empties the magazine, starting when the bolt is released), something to keep in mind.

you can add a M4 stock to it ( I did in camo) which will let you use mags that will be easy to load in and out plus you can still load it from the top with stripper clips if you like.

If you want to keep it as a remembrance keep it clean or grease it up or you can make a case to keep it in with photo's of him,etc. But that is me.
their great for florida type hunting,(swamp,woods,hot & dry,bushy),some people sell their type of ammo for it ( AK47 use's same ammo) that is hotter.
great luck with it have fun if you do shoot it :>) .............................TY

You know anyone who uses a Tapco stock? The reviews seem good and the features as well. I also found a recoil buffer that is recommended.

I personally don't like the looks of adjustable stalks on the SKS/AK47 etc. they just don't look like they belong however a recoil buffer would tame it down a tad.

E hello

Will do you have the sporter?( shorter barrel) reg barrel? I have one it is the M4 stock camo for hunting, new receiver and big scope on it {hehe} Plus I also made sure the tip of the barrel ( which is chromed) is black ( sun shine hits it and u r givien a way),got new mags for the stock and the act like AK mags.You can watch a video of how to change out the stock on www.youtube.com and it is not hard but make sure you have a mallet for part of it.you can dress it up as far as you can think,( there is lots of toys to add on :>) ),My self would like a easier trigger pull,but you can put in to it a lot of $$$money$$$ but dose not mean that will make it worth more................................TY

sks stock

I had an ATI monte carlo stock on an SKS at one point. It actually worked pretty good except it wouldn't take the bayonet. I ended up taking it off and putting the wood back on.
