This summer while I have time and money I can going to be making some improvements to old guns and buying new ones.
One of the things is I am getting a Mojo or Tech sight for my SKS, I think the Tech is gonna win out.
My other question is, while I am at it...
I know the SKS detachable mags suck.
But is there a fixed 20 round mag or something available? Does it work?
Like, a mag that attaches the same way as the stock mag, but holds 20 rounds?

They are such beasts out there. http://www.sksman.com/ is the only place I can seem to find them. For the cost of two of them you can get a new SKS! :what:

Malice, there are a few fixed magazines of > 10 round capacity for the SKS, but I don't think any of them are factory. I have one like the one on the rifle at the left in the picture below. It feeds correctly but only hold with 15-17 rounds loaded; 20 is almost impossible to load in. I have seen a similar version with a red star stamped on the side. Reports I've read seem to be hit or miss. Definitely not worth the $70-80 that SKSMan is charging for them, IMO.
I'm sure someone could design a fixed magazine that would work, but the market is probably not there. In addition, there's all the legal questions about it. I bought an SKS that was factory built to accept AK magazines. It cost more, but it was still less expensive than most AKs. I get my fix for more ammo that way.
