The SKS was designed in 1943 by a russian man named Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. It competed against the AK-47 to be the next service rifle for the Soviet Union. After the trials were complete, it was decided that the SKS was the victor of these tests and was then put into active use for a brief while with the russian armed forces, untill finally being succeeded by the AKM.
The SKS is one of the best civilian weapons in the game. It is semi-automatic, and is effective over great distances. It has an accurate sight, and a whopping ten round magazine. It fires one of the highest caliber rounds in the game, the 7.62x39mm, and hence has a very high damage output. This weapon is deadly at long range, and it's still good at close range, but it's easily beaten by other civilian weapons, like the PPSh 41.
