How many here like the rimmed Russian. Got a Chinese Type 53 30 years ago and enjoyed them all since. Even had an SVT40 for a few years. Got to love the fire ball out of the carbines. The Polish M44 is a favorite, beautiful finish and machining. The Finn's are addictive also. A friend loaned me his semi-auto PKM he just bought with a case of ammo and belt loader. Told me to take it out and find out how to shoot and clean it then instruct him on what to do. Had a ball with that, get one if you can find and afford it.
