The SKS was the predecessor to the AK-47, a Soviet semi-automatic rifle chambered for the 7.62x39mm round. The SKS, an acronym for Samozaryadnyj Karabin sistemy Simonova, uses a short-stroke gas piston with a tilting bolt and a 10-round stripper clip-fed or individual round loading feed system. While the the rifle is shorter and less powerful than the semi-automatic rifles that preceded it, the SKS has a 4-inch longer barrel than AK-series rifles that replaced it, resulting in a higher muzzle velocity. This Yugoslavian rifle features a post front sight with an adjustable rear sight and a 2-positoin safety and includes a bayonet. Its wood is in fair condition and its metal and bore are in good condition.
