I know none of you here are big fans of the Russins. I love the classic's with wood and steel. For those of you who apperciate classics I submit to you my latest safe queen. As far as I can tell an unaltered Russian SKS. It has passed though many countries. It has had the bajesus stamped out of it. Far as I can tell it has been in Russia, Poland (maybe), East German and Hungery. This is my third sks. I have a Chicom oval 974 and an "M" sporter. I luck upon this for $190.
