The SKS has enjoyed a bit of a resurgence due to some price reductions here and there, and there remains to be a small pocket of die-hard AK fanbois, but largely, the last ~10 years has seen an undeniable tipping of the scales in the “AK vs. AR debate” towards the AR, with the SKS only ever playing a distant third place in that discussion, only slightly ahead of the Ruger Mini-14. Importation bans, extremely high prices (after a steep and sudden climb in street price), 922(r) considerations, and frankly, good common sense have pushed the AK’s to the back burner, left behind by the surge in popularity and ownership of the AR-15.
