I’m so pleased with my purchase and can see no future regret for buying an SKS.
But what I love most is the wear on the blueing. I will not be refinishing any of the metal other than maybe polishing the bolt.
The wood, I decided, will be getting a dark refinish but light enough to really see the beautiful grain in this stock.
Will be taking this and my Mosin hunting this year in place of my Tika 7mm08
