Ok, I thought I was being cute but thatís just stupid.
This is my brush rifle. Iím not dragging my -06 through the briars, locust, hedge rows and barbed wire so when I go hunting for anything coyote size and up this is what I take and itís a plain Jane for a reason.
Iíve had a folding stock on it that got wobbly which made for inconsistent accuracy so I switched it out for this Draganov style stock and love it. The collapsible stocks out now look to be better quality than the folding stocks that used to be on the market but Iím happy enough Iím not switching now.
I have 30 round detachable magazines for it but those things donít work worth a damn. Iím actually faster reloading with the stripper clips it was built to use and I got real tired of dragging it through the brush and having that long mag grab every branch that went by.
The high scope mount is cast into the receiver cover so I can still use the iron sites. Even with the scope turned down to 3X when drawing down on a deer at <50 yards if you can even get the scope on target all youíll see is fur so the iron sites are actually very handy.
The scope isnít great, its an NC Star Mil Dot 3-9X 42mm which is good enough for me to put 10 rounds into a pattern the size of a 1lb coffee can lid at 200 yards and if I put a longer scope on it with better optics Iíd also have to put a shell deflector on it since SKSís are notorious for dinging scope tubes with ejected shell casings.
So itís not fancy but its reliable and Iím deadly with it.
