Both the D and M model use AK mags.Sometimes they are called paratrooper models but I don't know any Chinese paratroopers that use(d) a SKS.

All that being said the/my Norinco M model SKS is my fav model. It doesn't have a bayonet to mess with (I just don't have interest in the bayonet on those rifles). It uses the standard AK mag. It's pretty dang accurate even with average ammo. What's not to like!?!?

See?? She's Purty

Mine is a Chinese Type 56. I took it out of a sampan one night in South Vietnam in 1970 while serving on river boats in the Mekong Delta. Was granted permission to bring it home as a "war trophy" when I returned home in 1972.

I have two Norinco's and they work. They are just shooters and they shoot well.
I picked up a Romanian last weekend in a trade. Best trade I ever made! Very smooth, reliable action and the trigger is pretty dang good. I was surprised to be honest, the action is as tight as my AR's

To say 'why bother' because it does not shoot like a Remington 700 with a Nikon scope is the equivalent of saying 'why bother' with a Ruger Mini 30 or Mini 14. Those aren't particularly accurate rifles either and they are manufactured today and lots of folks buy them. Not for shooting matches but for shooting. Ammo cost for these puppies is still on the cheap side compared to everything else (you can't buy .223/5.56 for $5.00/20 rounds off the shelf can you?)

The purpose of all battle rifles is to be reliable and deadly within a reasonable distance. an SKS is a carbine length rifle shooting a round that is best suited to rapid fire. Based on the shooting I have done so far I am impressed. No, it is not as accurate as my S&W AR15. but I could easily take out whatever I was aiming at with open sights out beyond a hundred yards. I would not have a use for it beyond that distance.

serious rifle by today's standards? I bet if you were being shot at by one you would take it damn serious lol.

The best SKS is the one with the least amount of cosmoline in the trash can at Roses. Crap that was 19 years ago.

Yes Norinco is chinese. The only SKS that will accept an Ak mag is the SKS-D i believe

SKS-M will also accept AK mags.
