Welcome from NC!
I am trying to choose between two that my local gun store has and then I have to put together the money because I have been spending too much lately. I just agreed to buy a Russian SKS and am going away on an expensive hunting trip. The Local wants $700. For the Deer Slayer.Yes! But I hope I can grow it!
Do you own a deerstalker? I love it too... It is little, short and powerfull! A very good gun for hunting in the wood.
The Ruger Deer Slayer is not in production anymore and is highly prized with the deer hunters like me. I have a Chinese SKS and am getting a Russian one next week for $375. Surplus guns can be a lot of fun.Wow! 700$! Is it still in production in America? I thought that the deerstalker was more cheaper in the US... Here in Italy, you can buy it for 300-500 € in the "used market".
How are you with SKS?
