    Finally was in a position to buy a SKS. Been eyeing them for quite some time and seeing supply steadily disappear went ahead and applied for permission to buy one from the SO. Really happy with the one I did then get, all numbers matching I.O Inc imported Type 56. Metal shows wear (But not...

    So I've gotten the itch (again) to add to my collection to "guns that are older than almost anyone I know." I've seen a few Mosins and SKS on used racks here and there, but the prices just about made me choke (hex mosin $300, pretty ugly Chinese SKS $375). Anyone have an idea what other prices...

    I have a stock chinese type 56 SKS all matching #'s including the bayonet. I just realized after having it for about 4 months that the integral mag holds 11 round. I can stack 11 rounds and then chamber the 11th round, so I have 10 in the mag and 1 in the chamber. Is this legal in NY? Or do i...

    I'm in the market for an SKS (don't care which model) and I'm wondering where I can find any. Avon Gun Shop doesn't seem to have any nor does Jackson's. Anyone know what gun shops may stock them or should I just go to a gun show?

    Hello, everyone I will be moving to Brooklyn NY next month for a job as correctional officer. I currently own a Norinco SKS from Kansas. I've been told from another forum that SKS in Brooklyn is not legal to own. Does anyone have more insight on this? I wouldn't mind if I have to register the...

    I'm wondering what a unissued Yugo SKS is worth? Numbers matching. I see prices all over the place. Yes, this is the 59/66. I'm thinking about selling mine and eventually getting down to just my target rifle and my Marlin 60 that my parents bought me when I was 12 yo. So .... what is a...

    A good friend just told me his stepfather (an older guys in his late 70's and not really up on all the new laws) thought that he had to register his sks's that he bought in the early 80's. He brought them down to the trooper barracks and the troopers helped register them for him. WTF!??

    Thinking about an SKS. They do seem to be pretty wood/steel guns. Anyone care to talk me in/out of buying one?

    Sorry if this was covered in another thread as I looked and didnt see anything. If you have an sks rifle with one of those 20rd stock fixed type magazines, is it ok under the Unsafe act for non registration and now,with Skertny's ruling on magazines and number capacity, does it mean you can load...

    Well, I go to a gun show in Yuma AZ today. Was able to find two new Ruger Magazines to replace the mysteriously missing ones for my SR22. Price was reasonable out the door. Was having lots of fun checking out all the eye candy. You can just imagine what the tables look like in a free state...

    It has a matching 5 digit numerical serial number on the receiver and that is it. No factory code or stamp, no Chinese letters and no other markings except for a very small 3> stamped on both sides of the barrel right before the back sights. Maybe its a diamond code but I have not seen this...

    I need to determine the manufacture date of an SKS, to see it is a C&R. It was a "bring back" from Vietnam. It is a Chinese made "Sterile" for export.(there are no markings on the gun to denote the country of origin). There are no markings to indicate which factory it was made in either. The...

    Earlier in the year the answer was "yes, no.. maybe" so now that some of the provisions of the Safe Act have been implemented, I wanted to find whether there's been a resolution regarding the legality of the possession of loaded 10-round stripper clips in NYS.. ..or, should I unseal the tin...
