That type D makes me wish there was a good way to modify an SKS to accept detachable AK mags.

An SKS Model "D" DOES accept standard ak magazines. As does the sksModel "M" model.

Quick referance on how to identify.

SKS "D" "Rare" = 16 or 20 in sks with bayo that is factory made to accept ak mags and is dressed in a standard sks stock with a metal reinforced mag well. Has stripper clip guide.

Type 84 sks. = "RARE" 16 in sks. Standard sks stock with reinforced magwell. has a spring loaded Bolt hold open on top of bolt carrier simular to a M1 Carbine. Factork made to accept AK mags. Mags were serial number matched to the gun. Aftermarkey mags will need nminor mods to work correctly.

SKS "M" "Not Common" -16/18/20in sks dressed in a heavy Monte Carleo stock with cheek rest or a thumbhole stock with a metal reinforced mag well. No bayo or bayo lug ears. Generally - No stripper clip guide on bolt carrier.

Standars sks with Duck bill mags. Common and problematic. This is a Bubba modified sks. :roll: This is a standard sks that has a duck bill aftermarket mag attatched. It is not an AK mag production sks. The duck bill mag has an extention added to the mag that attatches the same as the original mag. Usually owned by listeners of Michael Jackson music. Some people like them, some would rather have a Rohm .22 pistol. :lol:

I've read a bit on the Norinco detachable mag SKS. What I meant was I wish there was a way to effectively modify my Russian SKS to take AK mags without it being an unreliable monstrosity.

I would suggest if you are interewted in an sks with ak mags, now is the time to buy. Prices are very low.

If you want to convert your Russian go here :http://www.sksboards.com/smf/index.php?board=65.0

Checkout this thread on sks survivors board. marcus had developed an adapter that allows the use of modified Tapco mags. That will convert your Russian without any pernament damage.

Ya I saw that, I've been debating whether or not I want to convert it or leave it as the Russians intended.

I am not big on modifing a sks. I prefere the way they were made. If an ak mag is desired I reccomend a sks "M" or "D". Even better is a type 84- But they are rare as hens teeth.

Ya, when you start tweaking that much an SKS you might as well buy an AK...
If you are interested in an ak mag version SKS -NOW is the time to buy. I saw one sell on GB last week for about 300.00 :eek:
As to just buying an AK- Thats apples to oranges comparison. remind me to bring some of my sks"M" and "D' versions to the next shoot. You will be impressed. I like an AK. An ak was designed as a Full Auto weapon. In the semi auto version they have nothing on a sks other than high cap mags. When you get to a sks "M" or "D" they do not stand y to the comparison. A sks is more accurate, better built, more robust and will withstand longer sustained fire.

Appreciate the information but I think I'll stick to the streamline fixed mag on my SKS. I see your point about AK vs SKS being apples to oranges. What I meant is that when you start doing things like putting Tapco T-6 stocks and detachable mags on SKS's you start turning it into something that it was never intended to be and I don't think you're going to get out of if what you expect.

That is sooo correct. Most of us who collect and enjoy the sks have tried a lot of mods early on. We always go back to the original design. It just works best that way. A couple years ago A member on survivors board used an sks in a three gun match. Using stripper clips to reload. He came in 4 overall in a gorup of about 40. Stripper clips can be very fast reload if you practise.

I'm still remembering shooting that nice shiny one during the upstate shoot this fall. I still can?t believe how accurate it was.

Thanks,

Thats what a lot of folks say. They are very suprised. They still remember the battle weary 69.00 dollar Chinese sks that was in the old barrell next to the spittoon. I will try and bring a good selection of sks to the spring shoot.
