Rubber eyepiece......No raccoon eye there but damn you think he'd at least look like a cop.

He looks like a columbine shooter, not a cop.

The SKS is a popular rifle on the Russian civilian market . Guessing thats what this is.

From looking at the pic it is a Yugo M59/66 with what looks like a 3x9 scope with eye relife. The cops in russia us that setup like are law enforcement would use a Rem 700 or a Savage 10FP.

I doubt its a Yugo, Why would they use a Yugo SKS with all the Russian SKS available in Russia for cheap!
Its probably a Russian SKS in a sporterized stock.

I think those are either parents or relatives.

Its a civilian who is in the mix of chaos down on Ossettia.
Its a Soviet SKS too, not a Yugoslav...

Most popular hunting weapon in Russia is or used to be an SKS with a tighter twist to use 150gr bullets.

The SKSs sold in Russia are overhauled by Molot.

I wonder how that scope is attached. It doesn't look like the scope is attached to the top cover but rather on the side like the rail on an AK.

Does anyone know anything about that kind of mount?

Thank you for answering my question.

They look like a couple of average Joe's doing some informal plinking, rather than snipers. Are they that low budget over there in that city? Or are they just under cover?hinking.gif
