Finally got my SKS to the range today. First impressions: That thing is LOUD! I was really surprised that a cartridge that small could make that much boom... I have to increase the length of pull. The stock must be made for people under 5' tall... It shot OK for iron sights and my middle aged eyes...but nothing spectacular. Might have to get a forward mount scope or red dot... It was on paper at 25 yards, about 1" low and a little left... I like it! No jams, soft shooting, and cheap to shoot, what's not to like?
