Yeah detachable mags. First semi rifle and no patience. If I owned it today, maybe a different story.

They work fine until people start "improving" them. Mine has been 100%.

Yea mine too. I heard any of the detachable mags have problems. Well , except the tapco 20rds special made for the SKS I hear those are pretty reliable.

Regardless I was gonna tacti cool out my SK but changed my mind , I think they look awesome bone stock.

mine has a bullpup "improvement" as well as the tapco mags and its 100% or as close as a mechanical device can be.

A Marlin Model 99M1 I got NIB for about $90 back in the early 1970's. It was a short carbine with the same tubular magazine and action as the Marlin 99. The main difference is the 99M1 had a wooden hand guard and an 18-inch barrel to make it look more like a US military M1 Carbine.

I kept it until the late 1980's when I replaced it with a Ruger 10/22.

I guess I have a different take on the SKS mags than the average.

The OE ten-round internal mag is dependable, strong, solid, and low-drag.

JMHO, but box and hi-cap mags are way over-rated...
