I own a 6 inch 586 that I got at a gun show about 3 years ago. I have not seen another one for sale since. Just about anybody that sells guns has an SKS laying around. I would not trade my 586 for 2 SKSs.

He probably went to some milsurp board where his rationale wouldn't be so out of place.

probably a lot better trade! i agree with all the others, the 586 is worth way more than the sks. i have seen the sks brand new for as low as $275 in my area. i have only seen a couple of the 586's for sale. the sks is a decent gun, but not anywhere in the same class as that 586.

The 586 is an excellent handgun and far more valuable than the sks. Dont even consider it.

I would suggest you keep the 586, and again based on my limited research they're becoming harder to find so its value will increase over time.
I agree it's a bad trade but there is no reason to believe the SKS mag well was modified. The original 10 round fixed mag comes out by simply removing the trigger mechanism. Snap the trigger group back in without the 10 rounder and the 30 round detachable mags will rock in and out. No mod's required.

On most sks all you have to do is remove the magazine put back in the pin that kept in the fixed mag and then you can just put market sks mags into it. But ya, I saw a short barreled sks at a local gunshop for $170 personally I wouldn't do it.
