Default Another Project(Thank God I have an understanding wife!!!)

sks.jpg

Ok so when I saw this at the pawm shop for 300.00 here I had to have it. Seems like an SKS is a very rare thing in my neck of the woods. Now I just dont know where to go with it. The guy at the pawn shop said it was pre-ban. I am not sure how to check to see if thats the truth. I just can't leave anything alone so suggestions are welcome. I was thinking a new stock. Maybe a red-dot sight I have already as you can see changed it over to a removeable mag. Any and all suggestions are WELCOME!!!

Ok here is the first major update on the SKS. I still have along ways to go but though you guys might like to see the first upgrade. I will say that for a no gusmithing kit it took a lot of filing to make things fit correctly. I will keep adding to this thread as I do more. sksupdate.jpg
