I got mine in 1994 or 1995 by trading a days work for the Gun shop owner for it.
It was loaded with cosmoline. It's in really great condition, it appeard new when I got it.
It still looks the same, and I have only put about 600 to 700 rounds through it!

Why would you want to take a perfect SKS and make it tactical. IMO the SKS is the worst to make tactical, its just not made for that, it is best used just the way it is. I tried to make mine tactical and wound up wasting my money on a Tapco stock and wound up putting back on my original hardware. By the time you spend the money to make it tactical you could buy an AR or AK for the same price if not cheaper.

I am not sure what you guys mean by tactical. It's a battle rifle, they don't get any more tactical than that.

Today, "tactical" is often used to mean things like "has a detachable magazine, preferably over ten round capacity" and "has collapsible stock" and "has rails for mouting additional accessories". Basically, the M-4 vs. the M-16.

I threw a Tapco adjustable stock on my Norinco Paratrooper, replaced the internal mag with a detachable duckbill Tapco mag, replaced the stock free-floating firing pin with a spring-loaded one from Murray, and thats it. Left the iron sights alone, no muzzle break, and nothing on the top rail.....just some rail guards on the bottom for more comfy handling and added a 2 point sling.

If finances allow I would like a bone stock Norinco or Russian and bring the wood furniture back to life with some TLC....this way I can have an original and a modernized tacti-cool one

Here's the marking on one of my SKS's, see if you can tell me where made and what year.
That's a triangle with a 26 inside.
Click on "full image".



Here's an excellent article on identifying Chinese SKS's.

Aw shucks is it today already? If you believe black plastic trim to be a tactical upgrade, then maybe the AR is an assault rifle after all.

If it's a Russian one, the easiest way to tell would be to look ontop of the original dust cover, if you've still got it. It should say something like "XXXXr"

Didn't say I agreed with the current usage. I still don't like calling magazines "clips". Whack somebody over the head with it, and the AR could be called an "assault rifle", otherwise (as I was recently reminded) it doesn't have enough cartridge to be a "battle rifle". The 7.62x39mm is just an "intermediate" cartridge, not a full power rifle cartridge.


My SKS has a tapco stock and a montecarlo-style stock; I like the options.

True, you didn't. I think all the semantics antics begin with the folks who want to sell us stuff.
