I would love to get an AK...but im in CTThe D and the M models were set up to take AK mags. To convert one to AK mags is a fairly difficult and expensive proposition. The D and M models do bring a premium. $600 is about right. For my money, I would rather just hava an AK. The SKS is a good platform and works very well with the factory 10 rd mag. It is fast to reload (with some practice) with stripper clips.
Take a look at the Saiga rifles. They're still legal in Cali, so I'd imagine that you guys can get them too. For all intents and purposes, they're an AK. They just have rifle style stocks which helps them slip through the legal BS.I would love to get an AK...but im in CT
you take out the trigger assembly and then the fixed mag just pops right out.Im appreciating everyone's input, but if the 10 rd box is fixed...how do people make them take clips? And can you make it go back to just the 10 rd box?
