I love my SKS for just plinking and find it to be very reliable. However, I can't hit squat at 100 yards, unlike I can with an 16" AR. This is due to the crappy trigger.
Is there any place (on the Internet preferrably) that you can get a custom or nicer SKS trigger that will have a good smooth pull?
The best deal on the planet!!! Bill Springfield just did my assembly with less than one week turn around for less than you can take the wife to dinner. And, the reward is better too!!

I got the whole package he offers - AMAZING difference!
