Boy am I glad I looked at this topic now all I hve to do is find a good price on a StG 2000.


www.ioinc.us

They are the importers / Manufacturers. You can have your FFL order direct from them.  ;D $375 last I checked.

I think I bought my 59/66 for about $120 and after discovering the original stock was too short, I found TAPCO and added the SKS pistol grip stock.  Easy gun to work with, reasonably accurate and I think with extra mags, the TAPCO and some odds and ends, it still ended up under $250 for the rifle.

While the Stag AR is going through break-in, I've used the SKS in the three-gun shoots but will soon move to the AR as I feel terrible when the vets who've been on the wrong end of an SKS in '60's and '70's flinch at the report.

But a good gun with reasonably priced ammo if you don't want to spring for an AR 10.

You can pick up a saiga or Wasr 10 and have it worked on by someone like Jim Fuller at Rifle Dynamics.

Nice Rifle. But why spend that kind of money for performance that can be had for under $400 ?

Check out Cabelas or Bass Pro gun libraries for used guns. I have seen AK type or Ruger Mini 30 guns for a less than 400 bucks floating around.  Some of these have been closet queens and are in great condition.

Thomas Jefferson: The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government. That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants."
