That is so cool. I agree with iridium completely . I liberated a SKS from the jungle while in Asia many years ago , and wish I had left it in the "found" condition . I didn't ; and I've had many hours of enjoyment shooting & updating it to a modern tactical weapon ......but still . And those of us who know M-N's know that this archaic old war-horse is still lethal . And a "sniper", too .
Great find , no matter what you decide to do with it . Thanks for posting this .
