    and I have to say I've never seen them use a stripper clip.

    Of course they're shooting pigs and deer and bear, maybe those strips got lost or never came with the rifle.

    Much more accurate than an AK

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

      of them for a few bucks about 10 years ago. Nobody would use them unless they were at the range, probably. They seem to loosen up after several uses, although I guess if it got too bad you could bend things so they tightened up. I get the feeling they were meant for one time use in battle situations, though.

      Agree about the accuracy, the only thing more accurate with the AK is where the ejected "brass" ends up. With the SKS they go all over the place, not infrequently straight up and back down on my head.

      Luckily the spent cases seem cooler than what I remember about M16 brass all those years ago when I qualified with one in the Air Force. Air Force basic training M16 qualification is not all that tough, put 40 rounds through one in the general direction of the target without shooting yourself and you're good to go....

      Moderation in most things.
