A lot of people here have refered to me as the resident SKS expert. That title is an honor that I can't claim because while I love these rifles and have a decent knowledge of them, there is still so much I don't know. I'm happy though to have been able to help many of you with SKS issues and questions, and always enjoy spending your money when you ask what you should buy. I've been fortunate enough to make friends with other SKS collectors like martin08 and after talking with him have decided to make this thread in the Mil Surp Collectors forum for people looking for trouble shooting info, and general collecting questions. Who knows, maybe we can get the Guru of Chinese codes Howard Bearse to chime in as well. If you've got a question regarding SKS carbines be it function, etc. post it here and we'll do our best to help.
