Default Sks stock

I ordered a tapco stock a couple days ago. Wife just text me it came in today. Can't wait to get home to put it together. I also bought the tapco gas tube and butt pad. Anyone one with any thoughts about tapco stocks?

I prefer the original wood. But that is me. Hope you enjoy your new stock.

^^^^+1 I had an after market stock on mine for about 10 years but still went back with the woody. Don't throw the wood away or sell, you just never know. BTW sold the plastic stock for more than I paid.....

I like the wood look also. That's why I got the gas tube With it. That way I can just keep the old one the way it is.

I have one on my SKS. I like the way that it feels. I have not shot with it yet though. I still have the wood stock and gas tube assembly as well, just in case.

Another tapco stocker here; I kept the ramline and matching gastube as-was and use the tapco and tapco mags.

I put a Tapco on my Chinese SKS. I'm 6'3" and found that the OEM stock was too small. The silly rubber spacer/extension that is sold to help this problem looks ridiculous IMHO.
I hope you have better luck than I did with the pin in the gas tube assembly. The instructions say that it should easily come out. I tried everything, but I ended up having to drill it. Also, plan on filing &/or sanding the gas tube cover to fit. Considering the price, the Tapco stock is pretty good. I paid around $60 for mine and came away impressed. Overall it was a change for the better.

Overkill84, he may have bought the complete gas tube with installed railed cover. I bought the complete tube & installed cover & a new piston & some other bits as part of a "compliance package" to dodge that 922 rule about domestic parts count.

I had the same problem with mine. No matter what I did, I could not get the pin out. Ended up buying a new gas tube assembly, which should beat my place by the end of the week.

This is good advice!

When you to make some adds or upgrades it is better to work on new, replaced parts and have old one in orginal shape.
If you would like to sell it you will have to sets - orginal one and modified. Thanks to it you can ask for more money.
And also what is important you have spare parts if something would go wrong.

I'm doing that with my AKMSN.
