An SKS is a relatively low-powered, short-range rifle, not a sniper rifle. I think the correct scaremonger term you're supposed to use for the SKS is "assault weapon" or somesuch; get your cue cards straight.

It's the closest a lot of gunners can get to having a SNIPER rifle

Your aspersion is kind of silly, since anyone with a clean record and some cash can buy an actual "sniper rifle," e.g. a high-powered bolt-action set up for precision shooting, ranging from a $500 Remington M700 .30-06 to a $5000+ Accuracy International .338 Lapua Magnum.


Here's a basic Remington Model 700 deer rifle, with a bipod attached to the forward sling swivel:




The U.S. military issues the Model 700 as as the M24 and M40 Sniper Weapons Systems:




Here's a commercial Winchester Model 70 deer rifle, based on the German Mauser infantry rifle. A Model 70 was the primary issue weapon of legendary USMC sniper Carlos Hathcock:




Sako TRG chassis rifle, made in Finland and available even in gun-control utopias like Australia and AFAIK the UK:

And here's a top-of-the-line Accuracy International chassis rifle, made in the UK, yours for only $5,844.99:
