| "Often seen in the hands of new shooters, young, fresh-faced and ready to run in the woods (or in the Mazes), the SKS is a common first choice for people looking to hone their skills with a semi-automatic rifle, while still having a potent weapon for more serious purposes. Chambered in 7.62x39mm, reloaded with stripper clips, and fitted with an integrated bayonet for those with a mind to fight up close and personal, the SKS offers plenty for its low price."|

The IZHMEKH Simonov SKS (also called Simonov SKS, or simply SKS) is a 7.62x39mm conventional rifle.
This weapon can receive the following minor customization services:
- Tactical conversion: SKS Custom
The SKS Custom kit replaces the old wooden stock with an Intrafuse plastic and aluminium frame, featuring an M4-style retractable stock, a top rail for mounting optics, and a larger, though still not detachable 20-round magazine. In addition, the barrel is threaded, and the bayonet is still available, as long as you have no other muzzle accessories currently mounted.
- Stock type: Becomes Retractable (RS).
- Feeding standard capacity: Becomes 20-round capacity.
- Muzzle: Becomes Standard devices.
- Optics: Becomes NATO Short mount.
- The integrated bayonet on this weapon is foldable. By default, the bayonet is folded. Unfolding or folding a bayonet is a free action, but which can only be done once per turn.
- When in folded position, the bayonet cannot be used but allows for the use of other muzzle accessories (if the weapon is compatible with any).
- When in open position, the bayonet is deployed and can be used, but prevents the use of other muzzle accessories.
- Stripper clip compatibility: SKS 10-round stripper clip
