    There is no courage in pulling a trigger, pushing a button or doing as you're told. The real courage is standing for what you believe, regardless of the consequences.

    I remember in the early 90's just before the Brady Bill went on line, you could get a Norinco for $69.00. I waited a couple of years and bought a Russian one for $119.00. Traded it away a couple of years ago. they are a blast!

    I just acquired a Norinco about 6 weeks ago.  Sadly, no original wood stock and the front sight piece is missing.  So I went ahead and threw an ATI on it.  Great fun to shoot.  I don't think it had ever been cleaned and still fired 100 rounds with no problem.  Great buy!

    Thanks for the heads up.  I'll have to check it out.  Although after firing that ATI stock I'm really loving the added control I have... Can't resist a good "Bubba" gun I guess   :-\

    Nice looking Norinco.  I've got one that looks nice like that, but have another that looks like it was floated here behind a sampan.   Should be a good shooter for you.  Despite some bad pr, they are pretty solid shooters.  ~Craig

    Ran 80 flawless rounds through it today .  To say it was a fun gun to shoot would be an epic understatement  :happydance

    I bought a Norinco SKS in the '90's and did my first glassbedding experiment on it.

    I then used it in a few National Match Courses out to 300yd to accrue sufficient practice to qualify for the DCM Garand Purchase program. It shot pretty well for an SKS.

    I love sks's, they are pretty sweet guns, more refined-looking than other Russian guns IMHO.

    My one and only Sov. Block Gun is an SKS I got from a friend last year with the ATI stock and a 4X32 Rubber armored Scope. Got a few 20 (5) and 2-30 Rd Mags....would love to get one of the 75 Rd drums....

    Unfortunately the Norinco SKS I had patterned like a shotgun, had a heavy, slightly gritty trigger, and did not have a good engagement between the trigger and sear - you could lightly rap the stock on the ground and it would "fire" (not sure how that particular combination came about).

    I sold it to a guy for more than I had in it after disclosing its issues.

    A couple of years back when I was still in NY and visiting a LGS, I caught a delivery of Yugo M59/66A1's and snapped one up on the spot. Rifle was (and remains) coated in cosmoline. Sometime in the next year, I intend to clean it down to the pores and cycle several stripper clips of Russian FMJ through it.

    ..Just to get the feel of it...

    I have a Tech Sight handy but am not quite ready to bubbafy a pristine 59/66A1.

    I also have a 90's period Norinco that I've mentioned elsewhere that is so bubbafied the Tech Sight can only be an improvement, but there's a second sight for that one, too.

    I bought my Norinco SKS about 1995 or 96. It was actually a trade for some labor for the gun shop owner. I got it for $85 worth of labor, and it was full of cosmoline. I have a friend that used to be a gunsmith that came over and showed me/helped me clean it up.

     I will post a couple of pictures of it as soon as I take some more. I had them on another computer that crashed and burned. It will be awhile before I get the chance to take more pictures, as we will be very busy after our move for awhile.

    Ken;

    Welcome aboard. I am newly moved to SE AZ, about 60 miles East of Tucson, arrived Memorial Day W/E. Our move-in is getting to the point where the shooting stuff gets finally unpacked and some setting-up is in progress.

    What's your general location? If you are within an hour's drive, I'd like to share some brew with you. I'm an Old Cuss Jarhead from RVN in 1966-67.

    I admire the AK's but they are not my basic style of shooting; the SKS is rather more to my taste. I like LR, but so far, I don't know where to go to do it. This, too, shall pass.

    Ken;

    I looked up St Johns, and we live on the same highway, 191. However, I live about 280 miles South of you.
