So I'v been thinking a lot about a norico sks I picked up awhile ago. I have a yugo as well. And one of the frustrating things for me was always the need to have the bolt open when replacing a detachable mag. I'v been wondering if anyone has ever thought about modifying the bolt slightly so that it wouldn't be an issue? I don't have my norinco with me so I have to go off of memory of the bolt design but if you were to remove the action and bottom metal from the stock partial inserted a detachable mag and scribed a line along the bottom of the bolt and removed only enough metal To allow the removal and insertion of a detachable mag. Would it still function correctly? I'm not saying remove the entire rails on the bottom but basicly make a cut out to allow the mag lips to pass through a closed bolt. I'm thinking that the cut outs would be short enough that it wouldn't affect the bolts movement in the reciver. Anyone have any thoughts? Or thought about doing this?
