Second Hand Showcase 45: Russian SKS

SHS-45: Russian SKS

SHS-45: Russian SKS

On this episode of the Second Hand Showcase, we are looking at Russian SKS. But what caught my eye about this rifle were the things that were wrong with it. 

My point being, there is room to negotiate on a rifle like this since it’s not 100% original and “correct”.

Maybe you don’t see it? But if you do, a guy might be able to get into a quality Russian SKS for less than market value?
