Guys I found a 1955 chinese sks rifle that was used in Korea. I am in the process of buying the gun to use as a gun for SHTF. I don't know a whole lot about the rifle in general. But the gun seems to be in good condition, but I have not got to put any ammo through it yet, but i feel the asking price is low enough ( $ 170.00), that if it does need work i can get it back in a workable condition,( I already plan on taking it to a gunsmith when I pick it up) It is in it's original stock and has been re-varnished otherwise the gun would have been worth more. The stock is pretty beat-up, due to the fact it was a gun used in Korea, but like I stated earlier seems to solid otherwise. If anyone else can give me any general background on this rifle that would be appreciated greatly.
