Siminov SKS rifle
The Siminov SKS rifle is a semi-automatic, rimfire rifle. A remnant of the Cold War, it is a very common surplus rifle for sale in Canada. It served as the Soviet Union's main battle rifle for a period of time in the 1950's, but, like the American M-14, it was short lived and replaced with the AK-47.

Brief SKS Review:
For the price, you can't go wrong with this firearm. It is reliable, fun too shoot and surplus ammo is still cheap and plentiful. I cannot stress how much I love the feel of this gun. My only complaint is minor: the stock feels too short for comfortable shooting. I recommend you get a SKS Recoil Pad & Stock Extender in order to enhance the the shooting pleasure of the gun.

How to load an SKS
The SKS is generally loaded with a stripper clip. How to load a stripper clip into the SKS: place the lip of the stripper clip into the slot on the bolt of an open breach SKS. Push the ammo by placing your finger on the cartridges and pushing down. They should simply pop into the clip. Pull back the bolt and you're done!
