Default Pics of my "cheap a$$" rifle.

Thought someone might appreciate seeing my "cheap" gun....as it has been called. Just got the scope mount installed by tapping and drilling the receiver myself. Also altered a tapco shell deflector and bolted it to the scope mount.
Of course this setup means that stripper clips can't be used, but I have a hard time getting them to feed anyway, and I found that if you flip the gun over and open the mag, you can "dump" the rounds in , and slam it shut ....faster than using a sticky stripper clip anyway!
Using a couple of borrowed scopes until I settle on what I want, but It was grouping nicely at 150 yds sunday after a little tweaking.
Also pictured is my newly finished reloading table , built from scraps I had laying in my side yard.

Very Nice. Is that a Chinese Type 56? I owned a Norico until a friend wanted it more then I did, I will see if he wants to mount a scope on it.

Yes, Norinco, Its been fun getting it set up, I'm really intrested in how far it can be pushed with a little new technology.....Solidly mounted scope, and possibly a compensator ( don't know if that will help, but It does kick quite a bit more than a .223! have to re-aquire target between shots.)
Very fun to shoot, and you can buy lots of ammo for a couple hundred bucks! ...just have to be sure and leave yourself time to clean it afterward.

You said it was "grouping nicely", I am just curious what kind of groups.

If an SKS shoots under 3MOA I'm impressed and would be highly skeptical.

The rifle is cheap but not cheaply made. If it were built in an American factory today it would be selling for at least $800.

It works, though I would have left it as it came from the factory.

This was my last target (8" circle, 150 yds)on sunday, I was still adjusting the scope, but not bad. I was able to shoot the skeet I put on the back burm with about a 90% hit rate.
I used YUGO ammo and Wolf military classic, the Classic seemed a little more accurate.
I should state that I am a complete amature at this stuff and at this point its going to be hard to sort out what part of any inaccuracy is my fault, and what part is the rifle/ammo.

Since I plan to shoot the rifle , instead of letting it set in a safe, I figured the benefits of making it usable at distance outweighed the little value lost to drilling the 4 holes. My eyes aren't as good as when I was younger, and using iron sights isn't much fun anymore.
The origional stock actually covers the holes ...if I were to convert it back......and I DID leave the bayonet!
