The SKS is the Gold Dollar of rifles. Cheap and not so pretty but it will gitter done. Lots of room for tweaking and modifications but I don't think the plaid blanket stock treatment does anything for me. And actually I don't consider a stock SKS all that ugly. Sort of a cross between an AK and an M1 carbine.
