At the time, many American gun owners were leery of the inexpensive guns because the quality was unknown. Years later, however, the Nornico SKS has a reputation for being drop dead reliable and has passable accuracy. At one time, you could also buy a thousand rounds of 7. Even today, it is an economical choice when compared to other calibers and makes a great mid-range choice for plinking or even self-defense. Shooting the SKS is easy because the weight and large bolt absorb much of the felt recoil, although for many, the crude sights hinder accurate shooting.
SKS rifles generally have a 10 round fixed magazine that can be loaded via stripper clips. Larger capacity fixed magazines with questionable reliability are available as well. It does take practice, however. There is no question that the SKS, in any form, lacks the refinement of the AR or many other western designed combat rifles.

This was after CNN desperately drummed up some experts saying how easy it is to convert a semi-auto AR into a fully auto version.
The idea is to make it as mechanically difficult to mount full auto hardware in a semi-auto receiver as it is to just make a new receiver on a mill. That requires skill, and time, and good machinery to do. A Vegas suite, some rifles, and presumably the dead shooter. Bump firing is the idea of rapidly pressing a semi-automatic trigger to mimic full auto cyclic rates.

Purpose[ edit ] The primary purpose is to be a handy all-in-one projectile, right quantity of propellant, primer for a shot. In modern, automatic weapons, it also provides the energy to move the parts of the gun which make it fire repeatedly. Many weapons were designed to make use of a readily available cartridge, or a new one with new qualities. The cartridge case seals a firing chamber in all directions excepting the bore. A firing pin strikes the primer and ignites it.

Rifle grenade A new method of launching grenades was developed during the First World War and used throughout the Second. The principle was to use the soldier’s standard rifle as an ersatz mortar, mounting a grenade in many older cases an infantry hand grenade fitted with a propelling charge, using an adaptor or socket on the weapon’s muzzle or inside a mounted launching cup, and usually firing with the weapon’s stock resting on the ground.
For older rifle grenades, igniting the charge generally required loading the parent rifle with a special blank propellant cartridge, though modern rifle grenades can be fired using live rounds using “bullet trap” and “shoot through” systems. While older systems required the soldier carry a separate adaptor or cup to attach to the rifle to make it ready to launch such as the German Schiessbecher , later rifle grenades were often designed to attach to the standard factory-mounted flash hider of the parent rifle; for example, the NATO-standardised 22mm rifle grenade can be mounted to most post-WW2 Western military rifles without the need for an adaptor.
The disadvantage of this method is that when a soldier wants to launch a grenade, they must mount the grenade to the muzzle prior to each shot. If they are surprised by a close-range threat while preparing to fire the grenade, they have to reverse the procedure before they can respond with rifle fire. Due to the lack of a barrel, rifle grenades also tend to be more difficult to fire accurately compared to underbarrel or standalone designs.
Prior to the development of lightweight disposable anti-tank weapons such as the M72 LAW , large HEAT rifle grenades such as the ENERGA anti-tank rifle grenade were the preferred method for allowing infantry who were not part of dedicated anti-tank teams to engage vehicles. Rifle grenades have largely fallen out of favor since the s, replaced in most of their traditional roles by dedicated grenade launchers, though there has been a recent resurgence in interest in such devices for special purposes.
