$120 for an SKS! I'd be all over that! A few months ago I saw two beautiful NORINCOs in excellent shape going for $400 each. They were not there very long. I've been seeing Yugoslavian SKSs going for anywhere from $289-$399, depending on the seller and the condition and I recently saw another NORINCO go for $399. Looks like the days of the cheap SKS are gone
I've fired both a Russian SKS and my Romanian AK, and I much perfer the AK design. Although lighter, the AK has a lot less recoil. The AK is also more confortable to me. I also perfer the AK over the AR. It's not as accurate, but it's more reliable and easier to maintain (although in all fairness, a good quality AR, properly cared for with the proper ammo is reliable as well).
