Re: AK or SKS
If its an AK you want (better than SKS IMHO), get you a well cared for Mak 90. Thier the best of the stamped steel versions and probably have the best trigger of them all. At best either one is a 3 moa rifle, thats 9" groups at 300 IF you pull the trigger perfectly, there's no wind and you're shooting match ammo with a perfect zero. That can easily equal a complete miss on a whitetail deer. They are NOT a 300 yrd hunting rifle.
