  1. SKS

    That's exactly it; M44. Made at Izhevsk. I like the carbines more than the rifles. They just look odd to me.
  2. SKS

    Nice man, always thought Type 81's were interesting. Updated pics of my SKS collection. (and one of the overall collection for the hell of it.)
  3. SKS

    Thanks man; yeah they are neat variants. If I had a choice of which one I could get at the time I'd definitely have gone for the 88 000 000 serial #'s. They have the stubby fsb and a standard military stock. I'm not the biggest fan of the thumbhole stock, but I don't hate it either lol. I can see the mak90 in it. I hate my state, can't own AKs . Well, AK pistols are okay, and they just ok'ed the arsenal slr-104 (ak74) so that's a step forward. I'll let ya know once I get the chance to shoot! Ah hah! I was wondering where that thing was lol. Yeah I don't blame you for selling it off; I am also a stickler for condition, looks and originality. A purist, really. I don't like seeing an SKS in a plastic folding stock & bipod, sight, shell deflector, etc.(if it's already mismatching & whatnot , I suppose it's alright; in my little world lol) ha. There's a meme somewhere I'll see if I can upload it. Will you be looking for another type 56? Or has something else caught your attention that you want in the time that's passed?
  4. SKS

    Got another today SKS Sporter (92). The variant that takes AK magazines besides M, D, NR, etc.. So this makes #6 in my SKS collection to date; and still many more to get @hangoverhomey
  5. SKS

    Yep, I love my Alby. The handguard is so unique lol. I do want to get another though, that has all #'s matching. Thats nice though, that you were even able to pick and choose which parts for your SVT dude! Nice!
  6. SKS

    :0! Dude, they are gorgeous. Your SVT looks immaculate too! Amazing pieces you got there man, thanks for sharing
  7. I for one believe the special weapon should have some type of special attribute to it. What it is, I do not know. I also believe it shouldn't be a 100% one shot kill golden gun style weapon. Thirdly, I strongly suggest it not being able to be kept on death, so that if another player kills the Sherpa, he/she earned the sherpas special weapon and can use it and the special attribute is still active. Itd create a neat market / desire for rare "Sherpa guns" in the economy. They'd be worth a lot. Theyd be sought after by everyone and not only sherpas would be able to have them, but would remain special to them because it's only them who can earn one. In addition, to make it special to the specific Sherpa who earned it, in the item description of the special weapon, there could be a little anecdote/story on how the Sherpa came to acquire it, by say, "taking on a group of 7 scavs while wounded and bleeding out, managed to kill them all but took another shot which fractured his leg, the Sherpa crawled to the exit and called for extraction." That maybe wasn't a great example , but the descriptions themselves could be story/lore rich and full of cool interesting info and epic stories , similar to the item descriptions of legendaries in Diablo III. Maybe a special attribute of one of the weapons could be fire rate increased by 5% or something like that. But also, so it's not overtly better than another weapon, the recoil also goes up accordingly. As for the cosmetic condition of the weapon, I think it would be neat for it to have trench art engraved in the wood, granted it has a wood stock lol. As for weapons made with polymer stocks and such, maybe some type of interesting cerakoting. Just to clarify; while I think it would be cool for the weapon to have a small bonus attribute that makes it better than another weapon, I strongly believe it should not be golden gun good. It should still rely on the person using its skill mostly. And if the community as a whole decided they all don't believe a special attribute should be given to a sherpas gun, if any gun at all I'd be fine with that too. But I just personally think Since it is an RPG style survival shooter, that it would fit well. Maybe on a sherpas weapon isn't the right place, maybe on a weapon everyone can find and doesn't need to help newbs out and be chosen out of 10's of thousands of people for a Sherpa title. But still a rare, pray to RNGeesus type occurrence where you get lucky and find a weapon with (-5% recoil, +7% range) or something like that.
  8. SKS

    Yep! Considering they are doing a fantastic job with the weapon animations going as far to even make the smoke patterns etc from the pressure/explosion of the bullet coming out of the barrel unique to every different muzzle brake, suppressor, compensator ,etc. and record the sounds of each gun in different conditions/areas, chances are it's going to sound just as they do in real life. Borscht— not a bad question. I asked it not too long ago (a couple weeks ago) in this same thread to one of the developers and his response was something along the lines of "cannot tell you (yet)" im one of the people who isn't a big fan of polymer on rifles that were made originally wood and steel. But I don't mind it on some, and won't go out of my way to bash people for it. I like the slr104 and such. I'm going to probably get one soon since they are now OK in Maryland . That's pretty neat though, so did/do you live in Israel? M1's are neat and also on my list of "to-gets" big fan of carbines.
  9. SKS

    Hah yeah I always see people from Canada in an SKE group I'm in posting ads from cabelas and something tire ( forget full name) for $200 Russians. Here in the US Chinese is more plentiful, less expensive too. & Izhevsks are rare/harder to find. Can't wait to see yours! I bit the bullet and bought a Sporter today. Been wanting one for the longest time and could never find them for a decent price, always $650-800 (yeah $800 ಠ_ಠ. Unreasonable if you ask me. Unless it was the first or second gen of Sporter then I'd consider paying that much). So I got it for $550. I missed an NR a couple days back for $300 (!!!!) (NR is the one that looks like a Sporter except it doesn't have the side sling swivel, or dimple on the foregrip. It's like a normal military stock in that aspect.) Anyhow, can't wait to load up some AK mags and have some fun with the Sporter once it arrives. :0
  10. If I was in Tarkov, I would..... escape. Ta-da. That was an original one right?!
  11. SKS

    Thanks , homey . Yeah I'm a big fan of the Albanians, suppose to be getting another this week once the guy gets back from Florida. Don't know if I'll be able to though, since I am getting close to pulling the trigger on a cast receiver sks. Woah! That is a lot sheesh. Yeah there are a lot of M59/66's in outstanding condition. You kick yourself for not buyin em years ago, and I kick myself for not being born years earlier . I only got into collecting SKS' this past November. I'm 24 by the way, and hear older guys talking about the days SKS' were sold out of barrels for $69. (not rolling eyes, interpret it as more of a "looking up and reminiscing" emoticon lmao. Like a "the good 'ol days" type of thing. That's really cool you have a friend who's got a '49. Don't see myself finding or getting one for a while. Once you get your type 56 post a pic; you live in Canada , that's what you said right? Where Russian SKS' are dirt cheap. Both Russian and Chinese run for more in the states. Russian 500-750 and Chinese type 56 — $275 $350. (I wouldn't pay more than that unless there's something special about it. Like the stamped receiver I just got). I know the feeling though, looking at the games SKS model on the first page and not being able to use it! Ahhh (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ !!! Hope we are at least thrown a bone and get to see what the other variants 3-D game models like the SKS-M/D. I wanna see that AK mag >:)
  12. SKS

    Dude, I feel the same way. The way I see it, at least one of the SKS' in game should include the bayonet, even if it is purely cosmetic. I am happy though that they are including more than one variant. Nice to see another SKS fan; love the wood on the Russians, they just glow in the right light. Love my 1953 Tula. I really want to come across a nonrefubished 1949 with that 90degree end of the gas tube. Would love to come across an Izzy too. Ahh I could go on and on but I'll stop here. And in case you didn't see my others, I'll post the pic of my collection. I own, from top to bottom, a Ghost SKS in phenolic stock, Yugoslavian M59/66A1, Russian 1953 Tula (Liskie refurb — serial # stamped horizontally on buttstock and hand guard), Albanian type 56-1 (it has a Chinese magazine in it now while I repair the original Albanian mag), and Chinese type 56 (original handguard was bought and installed after pic was taken) which I traded along with cash for the stamped receiver SKS you saw. Thank ya sir! Do you have any yourself? Me too! Everyday that goes by without an update or patch notes that say "added SKS in game" is like another knife in my back... lol just kidding. I can wait; I'm going to stock the hell up with them once they're in game and hoard them hahah.
  13. SKS

    Ah hah! That may be it too. I didn't stop to think about that but now that you mention it, the Chinese did love their shellac. its smooth as anything to the touch, and yet, the wood grain gives it a gritty as hell aesthetic. What mosin do you have? I want one but not sure I want a 91/30. Maybe just so I can cross it off the combloc list. I want a car Carbine variant like the Type 53 and M44. The M44 is Russian, right?
  14. SKS

    Hey guys — just thought I'd give a little update again. For those who are interested or care about SKS'. Today I got a beauty — A Chinese type 56.... with the stamped receiver and pinned barrel. It's gorgeous. It's got more wood grain than you can shake a stick at, and it's interesting because while I am used to usually seeing stocks that are yellowish and/or dark red/brown on the Chinese SKS', this one is a really neat sandy/light brown/blonde. And the actual way it feels against your hands was really unexpected; it's smooth. Very smooth. I was wondering if maybe it could be cosmoline that wasn't all extracted when the owner before me cleaned it off, but my hands show no signs of being oily, or any traces of cosmo on me after handling the rifle. Either way, it's a joy to own this rare piece of history and add it to my collection. I attached pics of course; check her out!
  15. USP Match - that'd be really cool. For those of you who don't know , it's the "half life 2 pistol"
