Well I have a Chinese SKS and a Romanian. I've shot some AK's berfore. Theirs just something about the SKS's I prefer. Never could get reliable feeding from the 30 round detachable mags though. So in that respect AK's got a fairly significant advantage. One thing I did find out, is, the accuracy of the 7.62 x 39 is very underrated and really does go where I tell em.
