    I got a chance to buy both (and if I could afford em both, I would)
    The SKS is chinese, the AK a Romanian wasp

    Both chambered in the same round, which one would be the better buy ?

        Depends on how much they are. I'd take the AK if I couldn't do both. Me, I'd sell the old lady and get both.












        Not really, but that's what I tell her.

            Owned both and sold the AK. I regret not keeping it and selling the SKS. Go with the AK.

              $200

              The SKS has a solid wood stock (he actually has 2 that he's selling, one with the stock stock, one with refinished stock)

              One of the SKSs has aftermarket sights l, ghost rings maybe?

                Because it doesn't have a removable magazine, the SKS is not regulated in some places as an assault rifle. Depending on where you live, that could be a plus. The folding bayonet is cool. It won't load as fast as an AK, and they are very cheaply made. But if you want a nice rifle, you're not really going to consider either.

                  Spend the money and buy an AR10, that's my upgrade from my mini 14.
                  Please move this to N+P. So I can tell you how I really feel.

                    You mean WASR? Was it import, or home build? Them are nice rifles, not the best, but better than alot. Either way, if possible check the bores, and headspace, AK's are great... Very simple, and will run forever. People will b!tch about the accuracy, but I have dropped a pigeon at around 100 yards with mine.

                            An assault rifle is whatever the dictator in charge says it is.

                            Where I live, Il Ducé says an AK is, and an SKS is not.

                            AK.

                            I have one and I love it. I had an SKS and sold it. No comparison to the AK.

                            Mine looks like this.

                              Nah, you want a semi in 308, go with a Heckler&Koch... Or even one of the offshoots, but I mean it is just me, i am not a fan of the AR's or their prodigy. Too many little parts for my liking. Not knocking them, just to each their own.

                              LOL. I wondered why I got the old red X. I didn't know we were throwing an AR platform into the discussion.

                              Personally, I don't care for the AK platform. But that wasn't the question. I have to stay on point, and not add my opinions because the elite cadre here will blow me up.

                                  You will still need to have the receiver sent to an FFL unless it’s needs work to be considered a firearm.

                                  That wasn’t one of the choices.

                                  A receiver flat, is just a stamped receiver. It is flat. You have to bend it, then weld/bolt in the lower rails... It's all actually easy-peasy... Whole lot online to show you. Used to be, parties. Everyone shows up, everyone helped out. But I guess the gubment said you can't do that anymore.
