 No.880

A thread for the extremely versatile rifle, produced by Soviets/Russians (Tula/Izhevsk), Chinese (Norinco), Yugo/Serbs (Zastava) to this day and available as (relatively) cheap surplus pretty much anywhere.

Thinking of converting a Type 56 for hunting and range shooting.

 No.881

just get a better gun

 No.882

It is a beautiful rifle however

 No.883

I’m also getting a .223 remington bolt action, but I also want the SKS too, just because it’s so neat and the cartridge is a classic.

 No.893

Just use a fucking m16 with a scope or a feggen modified scoped musket you fucking turd. Just because it says sniper doesn’t mean it’ll shoot better than your standard assault rifle that’s not how guns work. Also how far away are you gonna be for most of your targets anyways, it’s not like you’ll be using a radar heat sensing system to detect wildlife you can see with your own eyes from a distance

i will never use an AR. they're made out of plastic and i can't take them seriously

Just the furniture, like every other modern rifle because it's objectively better. The actual barrel, receiver, etc are of course made out of steel.

Dipshit you’re
You shouldn’t be using guns with that attitude
Guns are machines not playtoys you see in fucking video games.

Modern assault rifles are built to kill at far ranges, shoot at high frequencies, weigh little with a lot of rounds and produce the lowest amount of sound possible as not to dox the location of the shooter because that’s effective in combat and in hunting.

Simply going ooga booga it’s a long distance rifle doesn’t mean it’s good nor practicle, same reason is why M1 garand fags and russiaboos would fucking kill themselves if they ever got deployed in actual wars

also this is an SKS thread, please and thank you

 No.923

>>908
1.There are polymer SKSs
2.Polymer is lighter weight and more practical
3.It's okay if you don't like the look/feel of polymer and prefer wood or metal
4.SKSs are not very combat effective weapons compared to common modern semi auto fire assault rifles anyways
5.meh

how is polymer more "practical"? how are they not more "combat effective" compared to "common modern semi auto fire assault rifles"?
ppl on this board keep talking about firearms like they're supposed to supply some extremely specific kind of convenience and it's just nitpicking over something that's perfectly fine to use as long as you have basic intuition
it just sounds like you're rattling off some points from american gun magazines or blogs like every petty bourgeois western "gun nut"

 No.925

>>924
>how is polymer more "practical"
Polymer is more practicle primarily because it is lighter weight. It might be more sturdy than wood but depends on various circumstances.
>how are they not more "combat effective" compared to "common modern semi auto fire assault rifles"?
The 7.62x39 cartridge has worse range than an intermediate cartridge like 5.56x45, it also has much worse recoil. Some rounds will have worse armour penetration and/or wounding capability. 5.56x45 is also a higher velocity round and has a flatter directory. 5.56 is also more available and cheaper in the west sans panic buying, however in the former eastern bloc 7.62 or perhaps even 5.45x39 is more available and perhaps the better choice.
The standard SKS in particular is not a great rifle because it uses an inadequate 10 round internal magazine and the barrel is too long to the point that it actually slows the bullet before it exits, the resulting velocity is even slower than an ak-47.

 No.926

>>925
7.62x39 cartridges from Norinco and Barnaul are actually cheaper than Western cartridge designs in Canada and less likely to be panic bought cuz muh China and Russia ;)
down side is that they rely on import which does make the supply chain more efficient cuz globalization but also it could be easily banned
>Polymer is more practicle primarily because it is lighter weight.
who says lighter weight is better?

 No.929

>>926
>7.62x39 cartridges from Norinco and Barnau
How dirty/damaging is it to the rifle?
Also like I explained it is an inferior cartridge overall.
>who says lighter weight is better?
Anyone that has had to carry or manipulate a rifle for an extended period of time.

 No.930

>>929
>How dirty/damaging is it to the rifle?
bruh just regularly clean it
>Anyone that has had to carry or manipulate a rifle for an extended period of time.
bruh just add straps and keep it slung

 No.931

>>930
>bruh just regularly clean it
I have heard some cheap 7.62 is considerably corrosive and the steel jacket damages softer barrels.
>bruh just add straps and keep it slung
Still less heavy than desirable. And if you are going to war or even just hiking and hunting you want the cheapest equipment possible.

 No.932

>>931
yeah, the older and military surplus ones should be more corrosive, and i wouldn't put it past norinco to put them in with the fresh retail ones just to meet supply, but again, you can just clean regularly. the barrel is strong, it should be fine

 No.934

>>931
>cheapest equipment possible
*lightest
>>932
>the barrel is strong, it should be fine
Yes, depends on the rifle, a chrome lined SKS would probably be fine.

 No.935

>>924
Polymer is also more resistant to temperature and moisture changes than wood. It also does not require treating with oil and polish.

 No.939

>not wanting to scare your enemy shitless and destroy his morale by emitting deafening gun fire sounds
