    Yeah that looks good. Where did you get the tapco stock at? What'd it run? Thinking of doing something like that with my sks.

    I'd like to get a nice bullpup kit for mine but the only one i can find that isn't cheap plastic has an 18 month waiting list, so i might go for that one. It looks really nice

    Is it SGworks by chance?

    Is there a cut for the bayonet? I'm thinking of going with the intrafuse stock for my paratrooper model and I'd like to keep the spike attached. I don't want to have the bayonet lug just hanging there empty. I sure as hell don't want to cut up my front sight base. Definitely not an easy piece to find for replacement. I did that with my last SKS and had to modify an AK front sight to fit when i couldn't get a replacement.

    Yeah i'm pretty sure that's what it was. I really liked it but i don't like the idea of paying for it then waiting for a year and a half lol

    That looks good. You might be interested in putting a bipod that attaches to the bayonet lug. They sell a lightweight one at cabelas online that I paid the other week 30.00 plus ship. Was 10.00 off. Took to range and it worked great. Looks good too. I don't have the original 10 rd mag so have to use the tapco 20's and this gives it the right height on the lowest setting.

    Froom all the research I've done, sgworks is the best bullpup kit for the sks.

    My buddy has para-military sks in a tapco stock with bayonet. I would suggest just asking the question before you buy.

    Yeah, i'd love to find one of their kits somewhere that doesn't require the long wait, don't think that's likely to happen though lol

    It kind of defeats the point to get a SKS stock without capacity for the

    bayo and cleaning rod. My Tapco has both...

    Never owned one, but I've always thought the SKS was a good looking gun. Does that make me weird? :)

    A '46 Russian with a Tapco side-folder in charcoal. I've also noticed a slightly

    longer LOP, when extended, which, for me, is a big plus.

    Nice! My Chinese SKS is also in a tapco stock with a few tapco mags. My bayonet fits the stock fine, but mine is not the shorty/paratrooper. I did keep the montecarlo-style stock it came to me in, ramline i was told; if i take it hunting, it will be in the montecarlo stock.

    I'm still looking for a deal on a "cheese grater" gas tube cover with gas tube to put on her.

    I'm using the Monte Carlo now.. not too fond of the grip. I really like pistol grip rifles. I think the intrafuse is the way to go for me.

    Anyone currently running the Tapco stock and mags... Does the T-6 cut down any weight from the rifle? Also, have the Tapco mags been any type of headache? I have read many times that they aren't truly reliable...
