Picked up an SKS over the weekend!
I found out Saturday morning that there was a gun show in Greenville, and having been left home alone by my wife I decided to go see what they had. It wasn't a very big show, mostly private collections for sale but there were two FFLs there. Anyway, one of the private sellers had a pretty nice SKS, and I had been wanting an SKS/AK type gun for a while so I took it home. I ran a few rounds through it on Saturday afternoon just to function check everything, and then I cleaned it up last night.
I can't find much regarding when it was made, but it appears to be an earlier model before they started stamping the receivers. If anyone thinks they can help with figuring out when it was made, I can get the serial # and factory # later today. I'll also post some pics when I get a chance to get the digital camera out.
It's rock solid and shoots straight, so I'm happy with the purchase!
