Sks stock question Yugo or Chinese
I have a Norinco. I absolutely love it. I put the Tapco stock kit on it and am not real happy with it and am going to put it back the way it was. The only thing I dont like about the original furniture is that the stock is short. Is there a difference in length between the Norinco and Yugo? Will they swap out easily?

The only difference with the Yugo, AFAIK, is the

longer cleaning rod, because of the grenade launcher

on the front of the barrel. The ones I have used had

SS bolt handles. Good rifles, a little top-heavy, if you're

used to a Russian, but the weight acts as a counter balance

to recoil.

Can you convert to full auto?

The length of pull is for all intensive purposes exactly the same on all SKS rifles the only difference is on the Yugo M59/66-A1 which has the rubber butt pad to aid in reducing recoil when firing rifle grenade blanks but I would only advise doing that with you stand parade blanks.

Firing a true rifle grenade blank such as the one used to launch the M60P1 rifle grenade would result in a broken shoulder pad or not. If you need a longer length of pull you can try one of these extensions at the bottom of the page there available in 1 and 2" versions.

Only if you are hoping to spend some time in prison? Not really a good idea. If you really want to shoot full auto join the military. It is not all everyone makes it out to be though. After the first few rounds it is very difficult to hit anything. I was army. I shoot semi-auto. Have no use for full auto.

Were SKS ever full auto?

Not that I'm aware of. It was always intended to be just an autoloading rifle. In theory you can convert any semi to full, but doesn't mean it is a good idea.

Think about it 450 rounds per minute cyclic rate,(@).

@ 8 rounds per second. So you would have a 1.2

second burst, on auto fire. Not to mention, you

would wreck a great semi rifle.

I find that most people who think the stock of the AK or SKS are too short are either extremely tall individuals and/or with long arms or they don't understand how the Russians intended for the AK to be held for firing.

If you square up behind the gun, vs shooting it like a clays shotgun, you shouldn't have any problems if you are an average-sized man. Although stock spacers are available, most people simply need to square up behind the weapon.

You might want to check out the fixed ATI stocks.

I'm 5'10" and have relatively long arms and have never had problems with normal AK and SKS stocks.
