As most of you know I recently got a numbers matching Yugo SKS. I've been looking at the Tapco Stock for it, but don't know if I should mess with the rifle or not. I know that they are considered a collectible, but there sure seem to be alot of them out there. What are ya'lls opinions on the matter?

Shak, if it were me

I would leave it be since it is numbers matching. I would try and
find one that is not #'s matching to modify, they are out there
and they are usually cheaper, but thats just me.

Shak, I'd leave it original. Hamp is right, get one that isn't matching and mess around with that one. If nothing else, it's another good excuse to buy anothe gun. That's a win win right there.

So far.......a big No!

Maybe I'll leave it alone and put the money towards a AK, or something.

NO!!!

keep it in original milsurp condition. If you want an AK, buy an AK. Don't try to make an SKS into an AK! just my opinion.
