Hey all,

I saw over at Century arms that they have M59/66 SKS barreled receivers for $33. I am interested in picking one of these up and mabye build an SKS as a project gun. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how economical this endeavor would be? I am also interestedd if these receivers are de-milled.
Thanks guys.

I have a couple SKS 'project' guns that were complete milsurps before undergoing their transformation. You can find a decent one to start with for around $200-$300. The whole is definitely less than the sum of its parts.

Not sure how in-depth you want to take your project, but most owners prefer starting with a gun with all matching numbers as the main firing components have already been tweaked and worn-in to fit together as a unit.

Visit yooper johns (http://www.yooperj.com/) to see what to look for in an SKS. At the very least you will want a threaded, heavy-lugged barrel that screws into a milled receiver, with a milled trigger group. You can surf Survivor's SKS Boards for additional knowledge, along with this link, (http://www.victorinc.com/SKS-FAQ.html).

BTW, I will never part with my SKS's.

I've kind of wandered the same thing before, but hell I only gave $200 for my sks complete and ready to go. Stuff adds up pretty fast but maybe it can be done, I'll be interested to see what others have to say.
