    I just trade for a sks today and I know nothing about them. It has a folding stock on it and the reciever feels loose in the stock. It has the 10 round drop out the bottom magazine. How do I identify exactly what I traded for. And what ar style stock will fit this.
    Thanks
    Pics keep saying app crashed so I will try a pic later

    I would def search for a different stock. That just looks odd to me.

    That is a decent stock it looks much better with 20 rd mag I like yours better than the Intrafuse I have on mine. You will not find anything similar to AR. Tapco intrafuse makes a stock that fits the sks and works fairly well. I prefer the origianl furniture that comes with it. It is not much of a tactical gun but it is fun as hell, very very well made, and accurate. you may check and see if your trigger group is secured properly. Look for a pin behind the trigger guard. It may not be snapped in all the way.
    here is the one I have

    http://www.amazon.com/Tapco-Intrafu...UTF8&qid=1379896530&sr=8-1&keywords=sks+stock

    Keep in mind if you get that one you will need to purchase a gas tube separately.

    just google any info you find on the reciever and it should tell you anything you need to know about your particular rifle.
    What did you trade for it?

    I traded a bunch of tools for it. I can't get the stock to fold and the reciever/trigger is loose in the stock. I will check that pin tomorrow evening after work
    This is my first rifle that's not a 22 . So excuse my dumb questions but what is the gas tube you have to buy to change stocks
    Thanks

    Its a great rifle and I think you will be pleased. It sounds like the stock may be damaged, idk. Even so there is the stock in the link I sent you that is made to fit. You can also go to ebay and find the original stock that fits it for even cheaper. The gas tube is the upper portion of the hand guard which gas travels through to activate the piston.
    this one fits the Intrafuse stock I linked in my previous post.

    http://www.amazon.com/Tapco-SKS6601...1379905643&sr=8-2&keywords=tapco+sks+gas+tube

    Here is the original that goes with the original wooden furniture

    The rifle you have has a gas tube that I am pretty sure will work with a different style stock.

    Here is your rifle in its original form

    Edit: Looks like your gas tube should work fine on any stock you buy.


    In any case you have a fun rifle there. Once you get your stock situation fixed you should be good to go.

    I couldn't stand not knowing what was wrong so I watched a you tube video how to break it down and it is missing the spring that goes into the stock right above the trigger. It appears that this spring was a dampener between the stock and trigger/reciever. My gas tube is wood that's been painted black

    There also appears to be a pin missing in the front that held the stock tight in the front

    I put a roll pin in the hole in the front of the stock where the cleaning rod was supposed to go and I went to the hardware store and got a spring to put under the trigger assemble. World of difference on the stock feeling loose. The folding stock had a stopblock in it so I took that out and it folds up nice. Ithink I'm going to shoot it this way for a while before I change stocks to make sure I like it.

    Thanks ccase39 for the help

    Unless there's a functional issue I do not think I would change stocks, that thing looks sweet, I've been eyeballing on archangel stock to put on mine. I really like that look. What power scope is that?

    I agree. It looks a whole lot better than my Intrafuse.

    The scope is a 2-7x32 tasco. Ill keep it in mind somebody might want this stock. Its in great shape but if I keep this it will get a tapco stock on it I don't care for folding stocks

    Shoot the snot out of it, then decide what you would like to tweak, if you decide to go with new furniture on her, pm me, I may buy the one on there now. If you sell it.

    I would wait for the new Archangel stock to come out. Should be out very soon.
    There is a thread with a video on it a couple of posts down.
