  3. Russian SKS Harded To Find?

    Arg...typo in title :( For most of this year so far, Cabela's was sold out of the SKS and so was Wholesale Sports. I was told by a man at the gun counter from Wholesale that they probably won't be getting anymore because the Russian sanctions are making them harder to find. The Canadian...

    Military Weapons Forum
    So there I was, two days after Christmas, a new SKS before me. A couple of our Simonovs are already modernized with synthetic stocks, detachable mags, etc. I know there are many of you out there who would give me a lecture about keeping the sks platform stock because it's "good as it is". I set...

  6. SKS in a bullpup stock

    Military Weapons Forum
    I've had a Chinese Sks with detachable mags in a polymer stock for a few years now. My only gripe is that its a bit longer than I would prefer. I recently came across a bullpup stock conversion kit that I thought looked pretty cool. It also knocks about 1ft. off the total length of the rifle...

    General Discussion
    The latest tomfoolery of me any my lit'lun. She made the mistake of saying she was bored, something I don't approve of kids complaining about. So, I told her to get into full battle rattle and prep for some training. I recorded some of what followed...
  8. ProMag 30rd SKS Magazines?

    Firearms General Discussion
    I have read a great many negative reviews about the 30 round polymer SKS magazines that ProMag produces. I don't know whether or not they had designs flaws in the past which have been rectified in newer products, or whether it was operator error that caused the malfunctions reported. My family...

    Firearms General Discussion

  10. SKS bolt will not hold open

    Military Weapons Forum
    I recently bought a norinco SKS and found a 30 round steel magazine, made by usa magazines. The magazine runs fine, but it will not hold the bolt open, it looks as if it should, but it doesn't. Does anyone else have one of these magazines, if so, did you have this problem and how did you fix it?

  13. SKS Stripper Clips

    Military Weapons Forum
    Hi All, I'm looking for advice for a good source of SKS stripper clips. I have a Chinese model and my current clips seem to be just a bit too wide to fit in the bolt carrier. Any advice on places for good fitting clips for a Chinese SKS? Thanks in advance!
  14. Optics for Norinco SKS

    Military Weapons Forum
    I recently mounted a BSA 4x30 scope on the receiver cover scope mount on my SKS. After play time at the range I needed to remove the mount and all to clean the rifle. It doesn't keep zeroed that way. What are my best options for optics on the sks? Are there any scopes with decent enough eye...

  16. Import Bans of 1989 and 1994

    Firearms General Discussion
    I getting so sick of this import ban of 1989 and 1994. Like most gun restrictions this one it's complete BS. This one hardly gets brought up on the forums unlike NFA of 1934 and GCA of 1968. This ban is caused some stupid crap -restricted semi-auto rifles importation because of "sporting...

  19. New SKS sights

    Firearms General Discussion
    I've been wanting to get rid of the crappy factory irons on my sks, and I've found a few good ones, but I'm not sure which one would be best and I don't want to blow my money and regret it. The ones I've been looking at are the TS200 (tech sight), a williams fire fight set, or a mojo rear sight...
  20. Red dot or Tech sights?

    Firearms General Discussion
    I've been looking into getting a new sight for my sks to replace the rather crude rear sight. I've got the crapco setup on mine(Before you complain about ruining a classic, it was the cheapest was to get a "Assault rifle" when ak's were still over $1000) , and I had the replacement gas tube...
