Got a new project
I am a self admitted gun nut and recently picked up a cheap SKS to add to my collection. After looking the weapon I handed the seller 250.00 and off I went to remove the cosmoline. In addition to the rifle (which did come completed) I also received 3 detachable magazines, 100rds of 7.62x39, a few stripper clips. Something just didn't look right about the rifle though. It was missing its bayonet, which was nothing out of the ordinary, but after careful examination it actually never had a bayonet lug to begin with. Along with the fact that a standard SKS has a 20" barrel and this model had a 16"er, this peaked my interest. After some lengthy time on google I found what I was looking for. It turns out I have a not so common SKS- Cowboy Companion.
A quick search on gun broker for paratrooper models lists the weapon for around 375-475. Not too shabby of an investment if you ask me. In any event on with some pics.
Before you ask.....I trashed the ATI folding stock and did a thorough detail strip to get the cosmocrap of of all the nooks and crannies. I am waiting on an original wood stock to complete the project
I also threw in a "Wolverines" sticker just for good measure.....If you have to ask then it's best you not know.
