Kinda depends on what you want.

Mine functions great as a plinker, would be a good coyote gun either with iron sights or a scope. Has a light mount for HD too. 1:7 twist rifling to handle just about any 5.56 bullet. A2 stock won't break, forged steel pinned on front sight is not going anywhere, rear sight is forged aluminum the same as the upper. And it is lightweight, especially for a full 20" rifle. It is a nice jack-of-all-trades gun.

The light got moved to my 16" 7.62x39 rifle for a more bump in the night gun. That thing feels like a toy, so little and lightweight. I just got a reflex sight for it, I need to go shoot it now.

My three rifle builds:

I was in California in the early 90's. I left there with an armload of new SKS rifles. $100/ea back then. Walgreens (I think it was) drug store had old military rifles for sale on racks throughout the store. Enfields and such. $100 cases of Russian ammo. I don't know what happened to California after I left. I would be a felon there now if I even drove through with what I normally have in my truck.

Indiana is my new state. Best place I have ever lived. And that's out of a lot of countries and a lot of states.
