Whatever works for ya! I like the paint jobs, although I hate the desert camo. Totally useless in almost ALL of the USA, but it looks kool, and makes people question wether or not you've been there enough not to ask. LOL! Personally I like the Russian SKS over the AK CLONES. The SKS IS a genuine battle rifle, whereas the AK imports deprived of selective fire are not. My favorites are a tricked out SKS I call my "Black Rifle", and my tricked out 995TS, although I have MANY other options ) Those two are just plain FUN, and CHEAP to shoot. LOL!
