I know Maryland has magazine limitations. Is there anything that has to be done to an sks to be MD compliant.

Yeah, take it to Florida...

Fortunately, in the case of the SKS, there are 5-shot internal magazines available

which take only minutes to change, with full instructions and videos

on the internet-remove the trigger assembly-be sure the bolt is

either removed, or to the rear of the receiver,
and pop out the old,

in with the new. Be aware that legal and hunting compliant may also

be two different sets of rules.

You'll have to google Md gun laws(maybe under this heading,.com).

As you probably already know, the courts charge YOU with being properly

compliant and aware of all local gun laws, regardless of how little LE

professionals know...

That's why I'm asking. Was thinking about a one from another state that's online but it comes with thirty round mag. That just won't fly here. Thanks

Well where to start, a very left leaning state legislature and governor. Both of which have no limits to which they will tax and spend. Both have indicated that they would love for maryland to be more like Cal. I have a family business that is based here for more than 25 yrs. It makes it hard to swallow some of the new rules taxes and regulations.

I'm not really sure about how the MD restrictions work. I was told by a dude from MD that he could possess but not buy mags over ten rounds in capacity. IOW, he was of the opinion that he could buy some out-of-state and get in no trouble for using them in MD on his AR.
Now, what is legal for hunting is a different matter.

I know we can't purchase high capacity mags here. I have them for my AR's they were purchased in PA. I just didn't know if the sks had to be modified not to accept them to comply in MD. Thanks

I would make an offer on the SKS, but skip the 30 rounder. You could pick up a few 20's for less hassle, not to mention that there are 20 rounds in a box of cartridges.

Sounds like if you get the standard SKS with the

10 round internal mag, you'd be good to go.

Don't worry, the FFL you ship it to will help you

with details in advance. He's interested about

keeping his tit out of the wringer, too.

I also live in Maryland the mag restriction is actually 20 rounds you can't buy or posses any mag with capacity over 20 and as for the price on the Russian if your looking in the maryland area expect to pay 500-600 I just picked up a Chinese at a gun show in tamonium for 300 so if you want a cheaper price go with the norinco
