Voted "Best to the point hands down most solid true factual reply of the day"There has been enough electricity used posting about problems w/ detachable mags for the SKS to power the city of Armarillo for a month. As already said up there ^^^- stick with the original fixed mag- or buy an AK.
It s like teaching your cat to play poker- even if the cat learns, he will not play well.
I second that, ive had 3 or 4 detachable mags and none of them were worth a damn. I stick with the built in mag.mongo43 said:I just use the stock 10 round mag. It has never had a fail to feed or a double feed. They are like a timex. Take a lickn' and keep on tickin'.
This. Even with the lowly 10 round factory mag in it, if you practice with Chargers, you can pull off some fast reloads. It has worked well that way for close to 70 years, so why change it now?I have a NORINCO and I use a NORINCO twenty round fixed magazine with it. 100 percent reliable, loads with strippers, and the original 10 round fixed can be reinstalled in 15 seconds.
