Actually, you can get a 37mm flare launcher that is styled on the M-203 grenade launcher. No paperwork needed, and since it is a flare gun, they can be ordered though the mail.
That will set you back about 175 bucks, plus the AR
to mount it under.
Don't knock the SKS, I have a Chinese one allready, Both are milled and the Chinese one for sure has the screw in rather then the pinned in barrel. The trick to buying an SKS is getting one that was made for military use by the country of origin, not for commerical sale.
I have never had a jam with an SKS, something that I can't say for my uncles Mini-14 that seized up on him, when a black bear was charging down on him on a snowmobile.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
