Why not? They are a fine weapon. Accurate and dependable. It's limited only by a non-detachable magazine.

I didn't know they were still in use. They might be limited by 10 rounds, but I'd rather get buttstroked by an AK or AR :) .

Looks like their mag pouches are empty. I would say a good weapon for units without a high amount of training. Semi auto forces them to aim better while given them a full auto weapon would just waste ammo.

Since Norinco SKSs are now imported for sale to law enforcement only in the Philippines, one small town council decided to
to buy several SKSs for their policemen (o better arm them) Its interesting bec the police are only armed with shotguns, norinco 45s and M 16s. SInce theres a shortage, they opt to get the SKSs which is more cheaper as offered by importers.

In the first picture, the one of the lone soldier, he has what appears to be a "chest" sling... that is, a sling whereby one can carry the rifle slung in front of you, in firing position. My Norinco is on the "regular" type of sling, for over your shoulder.
Does anyone know who makes a "chest" type sling? I'd like to have that for my SKS.

Just out of curiosity, do you know what Chinese weaponry are present in the Philippines, and who has them?

I agree wholeheartedly, but i dont feel the 10 round internal mag is a limitation considering what the SKS is designed for.
True, it does depend on the intent. Of course a soldier with 30 round detachables is probably more "comfortable" than a guy with an SKS.

its true one wouldnt have to pause as often, but the person probably wont be spraying projectiles all over the place, they will actualy have to try to aim. and you dont have to worry about snagging your mag on stuff either :)

Nothing wrong with the SKS as a battle rifle. Its usually more accurate than the AK and with stripper clips it reloads quickly.
