Showing some love to the now-vintage Norinco SKS (VIDEO)

Imported by the shipload back in the 1980s, the humble Chicom SKS is now a classic that is increasingly getting a second look.

With the ban on importation on Norincos stretching past its second decade, many decent AKs are now more obtainable than this orange-wood clad 7.62x39mm semi-auto. The days of the “$99 SKS” have long since faded into the rearview.

With that in mind, Robski and Paul with the AK Operator’s Union talks about these interesting guns for those who may have more familiarity to the platform that replaced it in service — Kalashnikov’s AK pattern rifle — than the old SKS.
