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:
