I got my first SKS in 1991 (commercial Norinco model) and have since owned six of them. Today I have a Russian 1953 Tula and a Yugoslavian M59/66A1, my wife owns a Chinese Type 56. They are fun and inexpensive to shoot, we have stocked up on ammo anywhere from 17¢ to 21¢ per round. Each of them are in very good condition with great bores and all are good shooters. All of them have all matching numbers except for the Russian, it's wearing a force matched Izhevsk stock! The Yugo looks to be new, I believe it has not been used since going through refurb.
