I had a russian SKS with a folding bayonet and 30 rd detachable mag...... it was definitely more accurate than my AK. I wish i would have kept it .... I sold it cause i figured I had an AK so the SKS was kinda like having two of the same rifle .

weired in my experience the sks has to be one of the most appalling rifles as far as accuracy is concerned. However they are reliable like the ak47, the ak is not the most accurate either, but in my experience with my ak variant i can actually engage a target at 100yards and hit it, I could not with my Romanian sks.

I've been looking on an AK forum and this is really clean IMO.

In my opinion, if you want the best "bang for the buck" literally, Pick up a Mosin Nagant 91/30 (Russian). I have pics of one of mine in the first post in this thread. You can get them "new" a.k.a arsenal refurbished from under $100 to around $170 based on who you are buying it from. I think it's a good first rifle, definitely not a tactical weapon though. It's a WW2 rifle that shoots 7.62x54R, which is a pretty powerful round. It's one of the oldest rounds used today, mostly as a sniper round, and hunting big game.

^ this.... its not pretty, its not light, it's cheap.... but its ballistically comparable to a 30-06, accurate, reliable, and well CHEAP.

I hunt with my m44 mosin nagant

I like reading about guns on here, but an AK or SKS that is extremely accurate, common!

Have to have a pretty loose definition of what accurate is.

I wouldn't say either are all that accurate ..... just my SKS was better than my AK is all. My AK shoot's 4 inch groups with the intermittent zinger at 100 yards . With good ammo my Hbar match AR and M-14 will do 1 inch groups no problem...... with the M-14 being the more accurate of the two.

Not really worried about it being that cheap. Pretty set on an AK and I don't mind paying ~$500-$600 for a nice one. Unless I can find a decent AR in the ~$700 range when I'm ready to buy.

get what ever gives you a stiffy......serously though, go hold a bunch, shoot some if you have a range that you can go to that rents weapons. Different pistols have different size grips, grip angles, and weights. It has to be comfortable for you. I hate my glock 23 cause the grip angle and size feels just wrong to me, I prefer 1911, sig and XD grip angles and sizes.

The xd is a great first gun so is the sig sauer p250. Don't go get something big and dumb like a desert eagle, taurus Raging Bull. Don't go for too complex of a gun with too many safetlys and levers (i.e. 1911 or DA/SA) Stick to a good DAO (Double action only) weapon and take some classes. All of my firearms training has come from law enforcement traning so I am a bit biased towards never having enough training. Every range day with the instructor I learn something new.

you can build/ buy an ar-15 in the 700 dollar range no problem.

Delton Inc. MOE Edition DTI-15 .223/5.56 Rifle Black

it needs a rear flip up sight

you can do it even cheaper if you build.
