Hi dudes bought an SKS for fun and have been modifying it for fun! I am from Alabama and found this place and decided to join looks like y'all like to have fun with weapons also!!
wanted to say welcome sks enjoy the forums
I love shooting SKS's. What country is urs from??
an interesting info site is www.wikipedia.org just put in sks and hit search
It's a Norinco I put a Choate Dragunov Stock on it and recently added a AK-74 type muzzle brake! How do the aftermarket romovable magazines work for most of you?? Can you give me details like brand,capacity,mods to your weapon to make them work or mods to the magazines themselves??
well on my russian i use a 30 round zytel that i got from cheaper than dirt it fits real tight and nice here is the part number MAG-616 they run 18.97 a piece they work well i have 500 rounds thru mine with no feed issues and i also use the stock 10 rd magazine with stripper clips which arent abd to use
keep your sks origional. if you want a ak, buy one.
thats the beauty of these guns everything that i did to mine can be swapped out as fast as you can field strip and reassemble plus the norincos arent worth a ton of cash so why not build to suit
i guess. i just love old battle rifles, and hate to see em get all dressed up. they don't make em any more, so i like keeping all of mine as stock as possible. i can trick out my newer rifles if i want to.
i agree thats why my 1895 spanish mauser in original 308 that is complete and functional stays in the gun safe except for veterans day parades when i lend it to the vfw for vets to carry
I've kept all my original parts and can put it back in a matter of a few minutes, to it's orinal shape, except for the muzzle brake I would have to work it back off. I could'nt hit the broad side of the barn with it till I changed stocks now I shoot pretty good with it! I can tear a 5lb coffee can up at 100 yards with the open sights. Not to shabby I'd say for an old fart that wears bifocals!
dont worry build it the way u want reaper just gets sentimental sometimes
ha ha. its true though.
