SKS: It Takes a lickin…

Borrowing from the old Timex tagline— which if you already knew that you dated yourself as much as I have– check out this SKS that was recently plucked from a river by magnet fishers.

It had been down long enough that it was rusted almost solid and full of little crawling things that called it home.

However, after a good cleaning, and changing out some small components (magazine, gas tube, trigger pack) while keeping the original barrel and receiver, it started ticking again and was still holding palm-sized groups with steel cased ammo at 50 yards.
