Looks like an AK (well, kind of) . Shoots like an SKS. Priced like a CZ858. But is the SKS-47 worth it? Let’s discuss it…
North Sylva introduced today on CanadaGunNutz.com their new “SKS-47” – a concept that melds the SKS and AK-47 designs into one. Realistically, however, it’s an SKS in an almost $600 chassis that somewhat resembles that of an AK. It is important to note, however, that the cost includes a functioning rifle. We don’t know much else about it at this point in time, but what we do know is that it will employ the AK-style rock-and-lock magazine system (and yes – it does take AK mags!). The chassis is also purported to increase the accuracy of the SKS, though I wouldn’t put much weight into that claim.
Personally, I’d get the chassis… if it was, at most, only an extra $200 on top of the cost of the SKS inside it. I certainly wouldn’t get it at its current introductory price of $749 CAD much less its (currently unspecified) regular price.
What do you think? Is it worth it? Leave a comment below!
