Check your state and local laws for what can and cannot be on it, because that stuff varies greatly.
I have a cheapo aftermarket 30 round mag that is somewhat "removable".
If you hold the bolt open with your thumb and pull the mag release with your index finger, you can change mags within a few seconds. It's best to have an extended mag release.

I am seriously tempted to get one to go with my current Norinco of the spike persuasion.
$239, wood stock is rough but bore is bright... where it isn't covered in cosmoline :-)

Interesting as the importation of Chinese arms and ammunition was banned under Klinton. I wonder where someone "found" these?

Yup, I have wondered the same thing. I noticed some at J&G Sales that look like the same batch: http://www.jgsales.com/chinese-sks,-military-surplus-7.62x39-rifles-with-bayonet,-c-r.-used.-p-58288.html $500.

I read something on an SKS forum about possibly this batch being "Chinese Aid" rifles sent to the Balkans or something; maybe that had an impact on importation. http://www.sksboards.com/smf/index.php?topic=109256.0

Of course, I also heard that the local dude found a couple of Russians in the mix.

They all seem to be Factory /26\ SKS's... there were about 25-30 at my LGS on sale for the $239 so I couldn't pass it up. Spent at least 1/2 an hour finding the best of tje batch.

If they came from Bosnia, Kosovo or Macedonia that would make sense on how these Chinese surplus sks's made it in to the US.

I wonder just how many weapons and rounds of ammo we've bought from former communist countries? I still want more.
