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.

Not too worried about legality here. They tend not to bother us out here n the sticks

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.

To clean the gas tube, or not to clean the gas tube. That is the question. Jesse17 AR-15 Discussion 2 10-06-2009 05:41 AM
