By Duncan Long. The SKS is one of the most widely available rifles in the world, yet it remains an enigma. Is it worthy of respect as a true assault rifle? Did it gain its place on the battlefield due to politics or performance? Has it survived because it's cheap to produce or because of its functionality and reliability? Duncan Long reveals the answers to these questions, beginning with the history of the SKS and advancing to the practical aspects of operation, maintaining and modifying this abundantly available rifle. 122 Pages - Soft cover.
