For parts, try Sarco. They have 2 web sites and the one that works is called
e-sarcoinc.com
I recently ordered some parts for my SKS.

That's a good site, thanks man. For a temp fix I put a small tight fitting rubber o-ring around the grove in the piston. Keep it oiled, works flawlessly. Still want a new hand guard and piston though. Also want an original cleaning kit. My buttstock is empty, been looking at a new firing pin as well to prevent slam fires. This is addicting lol

I thought the stock SKS is legal but adding a detachable mag, folding stock or other mods is what causes the rule 922r requiring a number of American parts to be compliant?

Yes Mongo. I believe you are correct. It becomes illegal when it is altered.

Whats the best way to put a red dot on one of these? Was kinda considering a railed hand guard since I need a gas tube anyways. I think I'd like it farther back though. Like on the bolt cover?

Having a red dot mounted forward us not bad since you don't usually need to deal with parallax and magnification.
