I have had many sks's all Chinese, all were fine guns. I recently purchased a Russian and i love it. I probably shouldn't have but i decided to trick it out, and i'm real happy with it. If anyone is looking for the best sks mag out there go to www.rifle-tech.com
. This mag is a bit more$, but worth every penny. Looks like an ak mag "No duckbill" gaurenteed for life a simple adaptor and your done. They r very easy to change out, their 20 rd is shorter then tapco's 10 rd fixed. Their 30rd is same size as 30 rd ak, but holds 37rd's. They work flawlessly, They also have many more accessories, including a see through scope mounted on a special machined cover and when dissassemling never loses more then 1moa. They r also called DC engineering. They mainly do miitary contracts. They did a trigger job for me, not just polished but machined to specs, a smooth 5lb pull and its as safe as u can get an sks. All n all u can't go wrong with an sks, rugged,reliable, and a fun gun to shoot.
