Hey all, are the SKS to AK mag conversion for sale on eBay and gunbroker any good? Me and a my father in law were thinking about getting one to convert a norinco and a yugo... I figured someone on here had tried it...
Thanks!!!

I would rather buy an SKS that was made to take them( SKS-D or SKS-M) or use the Tapco mags than try to do the conversion. Do you have machining experience?

not much. I just like the idea of mag compatibility. I found the directions online here: http://spystyle.arcadecontrols.com/01/files/SKS_AK47.pdf

Looks pretty vague if you ask me. Doesn't tell you how much of the bolt to shave off among other things...

Well if you manage to get it done, please post pics cause i've never seen an sks using ak mags before.

Why not give it a shot on the Yugo and if you manage to do it then try it on the Norinco. Personally, my tapco mags have been flawless so I am not that interested. I did mod the bolt in my yugo like they suggest so that I can insert and remove mags without screwing with the bolt. It is an easy and I believe fairly common mod.

Looks like something they'd be making in Khyber Pass.

Saw some interesting SKS mags at Cabelas today with 10rnd-50rnd caps ($15-$29 price range)
