If you can only take one, take the SKS. And ammo.

SKS and a load of ammo, though you better have a cache somewhere with ammo or a place to get some unless we get invaded by troops who use that round.

Thats oneof the main reasons I own a AR and M14 as they use standard nato ammo and its easy to find. That and 7.62x51 wont sell as dast as 5.56 will.

I'll third the notion of the SKS over the other.......... only addition to the subject--- Don't forget to stock up on stripper clips(!)

Forget about the aftermarket mags, too. None are reliable enough to bet your life on. If you want more capacity, the Chinese made a 20 round version of the standard, non-removable, mag. Fit it carefully, and you have a 20 round mag. I second the stripper clip idea.

Another option- Don't know if it's applicable here on a pump nor how well they work; But I do know they make shotgun inserts for other calibers--

How's a .12 ga that could doubles as a 7.62x39 sound?????

Didn't mean to fuddle the waters here but I thought I'd throw it out there as just one more option for ya'

Well, they will be terribly inaccurate and not a reasonable replacement for a rifle

While the SKS is a good weapon(in the right hands!) I wouldn't want to have it as my last resort gun. My SKS's are here incase the gov't goons come to get my goodies and then they can have my cheapo SKS's while I bugout with my good stuff as that's what I'm going to need to get my freedom back!

As far as SGN goes... they're no good at all for an offensive weapon which is why they're recommended for home defense scenarios. Leave it or stash it before you bugout(to where I don't know) and you'll have more room for spare ammo for your rifle and water for your incredible thirst when your life is being threatened!

I really like the 7.62x39.
I'd grab my AK first, but I could make do with one of my SKSs if needed.
I have use 'em for hunting quite sucsesfully.
A "chinese bra" chest bandolier with 180 rounds on clips is not a bad load and can be carried with any kind of pack.

Oh, and I'm glad to hear that it is still stock.
Keep it that way.
No other magazine will work as good as the original 10 rounder.

Those receiver cover scopes ain't generally worth bothering with.

There are some good peep sights for 'em on the market though, and I if yours is a Yugo 59/66 I suppose you could lighten it up by removing the grenade launcher, grenade sights and such if you just absolutely have to.

Just me maybe but I like the idea of fallback sights; I wouldn't remove it... Now as for the grnade launcher- I say have at it, glad ya' did it. Out here in the PRK can't have 'em on anyway lest ya' want a couple of new pin-stripped suits and a couple of bunk mates with room & board on the state I can attest the yogo will fire w/o it(!) IMO I think unless you're actually going to be firing grenades then having one on a weapon is beyond pointless- kinda like pinstriping a ford pinto You're talking survival and EVERY ounce matters, keep the dead weight off the lead lobber.

I like reflex type sights but I can't do red-dots (( I'm color blind and they disapear in a flash on anything but black or white in low light....)). I say do it but look for another mount. The stock sights work well and are arguable A LOT more necessary than the grenade blooper.

For anyone interested, take a look at http://www.Tech-SIGHTS.com I have their sight on my ChiCom SKS and for my money it is well worth the price. They are a very rugged sight that make the stock rear sight obsolete as far as I'm concerned. I still need to fine tune mine as I'm grouping low but well centered. Probably need to change the front sight height for the new rear sight. I might add that, once these sights are finely tuned you will be impressed. Windage need adjusting - no problem, you no longer have to mess with the front sight to do that. In my opinion these sights are what should have been originally installed on the SKS. But, I am glad they weren't as these guns have been used against us.

A folding stock with a forward grip???? What are you nuts? :throwrock: It's a rifle...not an assault rifle! Trying to make a silk purse out of sow's ear won't help you either!!

If you wanted an assault rifle ,why didn't you buy one? An SKS is made for a man who can shoot a rifle(with the proper sights like Trap has of course! )

So cann the folding stock idea and buy some more ammo and some decent sights from Tech-sights and become a good rifleman This will help you more than a folding stock with a forward grip! :fire:
