You can get a nice sako for less than a low end 700.

Sako has the smoothest bolt and trigger out of the box of anything in that category/price range.  

I played with a Sako model 85 synthetic stainless in .308 for about 40 hours a week, and I still haven't bought it, but I will.

The only other company I would look into before Sako is Savage.  Remington really went down the drain/stayed put while others excelled in the past few years.

You can't beat a savage model 10.

I was thinking of picking up an sks before I pick up an AR but I figure I won't really enjoy it. After the AR im planning to pick up a high power bolt action. I would really like a sako but i don't know about the money. Prolly grab some sort of r700, .308, 7mm mag? I don't know.

I got bored of AR's and my sks is a hell if a lot of fun... Pick up a yugo sks and it'll be the cheapest fun gun you own.

Sounds good, looks like I'll skip on the Remington then.
I wish I could try some nicer guns, my local store is big5..

Sks are really that fun huh? Maybe I will grab one soon then.
Can't beat a $300 semi auto rifle I guess.
Get emmm!

Hell yeah, just leave the gun stock too.  No Tapco shit, no detachable mags.  Get some stripper clips and once you learn how to use them they are decently quick to reload the rifle. Maybe do some trigger work to clean up the feel of the pull.

And if you order some 7.62x39 online and you can find it for under 20 cents/round.

I hate when sks are all done up, just doesnt look right.
Can you but "Matchgrade" trigger groups for an sks?
How accurate is it really, I want a pretty accurate gun.

Birdmane you will definitely be happy with it.

SKS are awesome.  Try to get a Russian or Yugo (without grenade launcher gas system thing)

-strippper clips are fast
-it will be more accurate than you, unless you were secretly on top shot
-easy to clean/maintain.

I don't like shooting corrosive ammo on guns with gas tubes/pistons but corrosive and non corrosive can be found real cheap.

Birdmane you will definitely be happy with it.

Each different make of sks is slightly different... Some have decent triggers, some have absolute shit triggers. I like the yugo's and the soviets, *some* norincos are decent too. Even then, each individual gun is different so you'll just have to feel them out. Machining in the 70's in soviet bloc countries wasn't as consistant as modern machining.

With decent ammo and using iron sights you should be able to hit 3-4 moa easily if you know what you're doing.

They'll never have a "match grade" trigger but no assault rifle should ever have a light, short trigger. That's not the point of the rifle.

I have a yugo m59/66a1 (with the grenade launcher) and it's been great to me... But now we're getting into specifics.

Up here you can get 1120 round crates of 7.62x39mm for $200 of the corrosive czech mill surp. I haven't come across any cheap non-corrosive ammo for it yet, and hunting rounds are about $22/20 rounds. Sks's just plain look cool, just a big knife with a gun attached to it.

I get russian steel by the crate and yugo brass on stripper clips by the crate.  Real cheap and something like 1200 rounds for $169 delivered.

The yugo on strips is ideal for the SKS because you just grab a strip and load.

I get Herters/wolf/brown bear from cabelas for 1.99/20.  When I want to shoot a lot and plan on detail cleaning the gun, I shoot corrosive.  When I just shoot a little and plan on running a snake and calling it a day, I shoot wolf/non corrosive.

Don't buy brass unless you are shooting to find the most accurate stuff or hunting.  

The U.S. made ammo for x39 is under loaded, just like EVERY US made ammunition.  

The old yugo is the best IMO.
