^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Well, thanks a pile for immediately hauling out the book of

exceptions, with AKMs. Mine came with no cleaning kit,

or bayo, and it's just a meat and potatoes AKM.

It's also a safe queen. I shoot my mosins more than

the AKM.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.
That's pretty much what I was thinking. At least I'm not breaking new ground with this idea.

folks want to put lipstick
on the pig, by risking reliability of the original unit, in exchange for
a higher capacity mag, and making other questionable mods.

I know I can pick up 19 out of 20 SKSs, in original condition, and they
will fire reliably, every time.

All other things being equal, get a gunsmith to do this. Because years
from now, you'll have lost interest in those stamped AKM POSs, and the
high capacity mags. But you'll regret it,if you wrecked your own SKS,
by taking it too far from original.
I really do appreciate all the input from the members here. However i just going to toss this out there. I picked up this sks because it was cheap, I already have a yugo that I love, and I needed a gun that I could practice my skills on and if I completely wreck the rifle I'm not going to be hugely broken hearted, aside from wrecking a gun that I bought. It will end up being a range toy and nothing more. I have others that would be used for anything else that I would need to trust life limb or eye sight to.

Once I return home and start on this project I'll post pictures of the different things I'm considering doing to it.

All things considered I really do enjoy all the different view points and friendly debates on this forum.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

There's a big fun factor to SKSs, sort of like Mosins.

Hey, go for it, BTW, there's a forums also, specifically

for SKSs called the SKS Survivor's Boards. Check them out.

I suggest not to go to "sks survivors boards" It was a spam/scam trying to sell you something. It would not let me close the page. I had to power off and reboot.

I have done some on my bolt. I still need to take a little more off for my tapco's but the promags I have worked. Although I will recommend the tapco's for detachable mags. I wish magpul would make some SKS mags!
