Finally fired my Norinco SKS this weekend and I guess it was all I could hope for out of a $150 rifle. No misfires or feed problems (with ancient ammo) and groups of about 3 inches, open sites at 100 yds. Are groups like that pretty standard? I didn't think it was all that bad, but I don't know anyone else who owns as SKS. But now for the big one: new Springfield M1a, standard walnut, 22 in barrel. Some feed issues with off-brand mags, but its shooting slightly less that 2" groups with off the shelf ammo. Man I love that thing. Anybody out there who wants to offer advice on an optic for this thing? Anybody else got one?
