Am new at this, only plink with a very nice Norinco and try to learn from many hours of comparing comments.
Have you looked at "SKSboards"? It might be T H E website for dedicated fans.
Dedicated as in serious, or 'lifestyle'. And I envy their knowledge.
Many of those people appear to have a seasoned comprehension of various SKS characteristics and they seem to always prefer Russians, unless a good Albanian or rare East German can be found.
SKSboards has a lot of good info. However, some of us have had run ins with the Nazis that run it.
