thats why I said most parts will interchange
all SKS parts will interchange with some modification to either the part or the receiver to accept the part however all parts are not retrofit.
it is far more logical to fit a Chinese trigger group to Chinese receiver than to try to fit a Yugo trigger group to a Chinese receiver or visa versa, it can be done but not advisable.
I personally would rather have all original firearm than a mongrel. If you have a defective trigger group you are better off using the original trigger group frame and replacing the defective part than replacing the whole trigger group.
if you are replacing the trigger group other than replacing a defective trigger group then that is your business and probably should not be discussed here.
another part that cannot be exchanged from one type to another is a Yugo gas tube and piston to a Chinese barrel and receiver assembly and visa versa unless you make some major mods, there again it can be done but not very smart trying to attempt unless you own some machine tools and a good deal of knowledge as a machinist, a bit of knowledge of gunsmithing would be imperative also.
there again I would go ahead and build my own version of the SKS before attempting to match parts from one type to the other, it would be much cheaper too.
any mods that I share with other forum members will be mods that any one with a few basic hand tools and a few basic power tools and some basic mechanical knowledge will be able to do.
I will not share any kind of mods that can potentially alter the safe operation and or functionality of the firearm
nor will I share any modifications that are illegal.
Gun Gripe of the Day...
Californians and New Yorkers should probably not read this thread because everything that has anything to do with our second amendment rights to own and bare arms has been blatantly violated and infringed and made illegal by the gun hating politicians who claim they represent the people of those states.
