Ok, I want an SKS and a Enfield JC. It will be in a month and I'll only have enough for one. What do ya'll recomend? I will probably be able to get the next in July. I just want a nice one and don't want to miss out and everyone sell out because I chose the wrong order. HELP!!!

I have both, so here's a somewhat educated (:D ) opinion.

-SKSes are plentiful and cheap. Ammo is easy to get and cheap. Mild recoil. Being a semiauto, they are evil. :rolleyes:

-No.5 Mk.I Jungle Carbines are not nearly as common nor as inexpensive. Ammo is easy to come by but not as cheap as 7.62x39. Recoil is VICIOUS.

The JC is more collectible but won't be as fun to shoot (unless you really like recoil) as the SKS.

If you plan to hunt deer, the JC is a better choice. .303 is much more powerful than 7.62x39.
