I finally used my newly minted FFL C&R. I placed an order with Samco Global Arms.
I was planning on making my purchase with CenterFire Systems but they have been out of the SKS I wanted for a few weeks.
I ordered a *New* condition SKS 59/66A1 and it came with an accessory kit included for $249. CenterFire wanted $239 but I figured with the kit thrown in it was a wash.
I have wanted an SKS for some time now...the ones I have seen at my local gun shop and gun shows in the area always appear to have some real use to them. Either the finish, the barrel or the wood was marked or damaged.
I am excited to see the condition of this gun...that is once I clean all the damn cosmo off it. I have heard that is a rite of passage for any collector of surplus military rifles so I am looking forward to it. (NOT!) I will let you know how my experience with Samco pans out and what I think of the SKS I get when it arrives in the proverbial 7-10 business days.
...that is all.
