that gun treaty will be signed after the election. that will stop the importation of all firearms and ammo into this country. something to keep in mind...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2926765


Ammo will be impossible to find for both and both will be on the registration list.

If you do not register you will be an instant felon and could be declared an enemy of the state by Obama and a name on the NDAA death list.

Welcome to the USSA.

God save us all...

Ruger mini 14 is the perfect all purpose gun to have when the shtf
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10484045


As long as you dont need to hit anything with it.

The barrel is too thin, it has no longer distance accuracy.

Get the SKS and shoot a looter with a mini 14 if you really want one.

I remember reading of a test where many different rifles were put through their paces in a swamp. Most rifles failed including the mini 14. The sks held up. Both excellent rifles. If you get the sks, stay with the iron sights and don't change a thing. I would go with the newer Tapco 20 rnd mags for the sks and if rich the Ruger mags for the mini 14.

ammo resupply will be what's lying on the ground and that will be 5.56. something to think about....

Exactly, as I have said before all you need is one gun and one bullet. The rest will be provided by Uncle Sam's loyalist, and they got the good stuff. Hardly broken in and only carried once.

I love the SKS, have 2 of them, but the Mini 14 is a better rifle. Better iron sights, easier to mount optics on, and the action is certainly combat worthy as it is the same design as the the venerable M1A/M14 which is still in use by our military today.

thats why the eminently pragmatic IDF tried it and it failed miserably under combat conditions

SKS!!!!

Its a real military weapon....Its cheaper and doesn't rely on expensive proprietary magazines...when ammo was cheap(69 bucks a case), I fired off a whole case without cleaning and had ZERO malfunctions....full confidence in my SKS....my Mini 14 had some malfunction with the same test and a wandering zero when the barrel heated up....

If you can't get the AK the SKS is the next best thing.
