To all you SKS ppl out there I'm looking into getting an SKS for no other reason than because I want one. And that I would like a semi-auto rifle that I can afford and is affordable to take to the range. I also want to get an AR too, but the one I want is out of my price range at the moment. I have a few questions though: 1) Would the SKSs that are in their wooden stocks be 922r compliant? 2) Which variant has the detatchable orginal magazine? 3) Which variant would go with and why? My plan is to turn an SKS to the 21st century, like every one else, by putting it in to a Tapco stock/handgaurd, mounting a scope and replacing the bayonet with a bi-pod.
