The SKS is a Soviet semi-automatic carbine chambered for the 7.62×39mm round, designed in 1943 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. Its complete designation, SKS-45, is an initialism for Samozaryadnyj Karabin sistemy Simonova, 1945 or SKS 45. In the early 1950s, the Soviets took the SKS carbine out of front-line service and replaced it with the AK-47; however, the SKS remained in second-line service for decades. It is still used as a ceremonial arm today.

The SKS is a Soviet semi-automatic Rifle. It is a powerful, mid-range weapon, considered by many players as the best alternative to the Mosin 9130. It can be equipped with a PU Scope and a SKS Bayonet attachments, and found in wood, black and green colors.

Chambered for 7.62x39mm Rounds, it is fed by a 10-rounds integral magazine, which could be loaded with individual rounds from the top through the open bolt or by using 10 Round stripper clips. The rounds can be found unboxed in various quantities or in 7.62x39mm 20 Rounds boxes and 30 or 75 round magazines for the AKM .

  • The SKS is based on the Yugoslavian SKS M59/66, a variant of the SKS. Designed by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov at the end of World War to be the main service rifle of the USSR, however, it was soon replaced by the newer AK-47 assault rifle. SKS is an acronym for ~ Self-loading Carbine, Simonov’s system.
