Where did you get the extended mag release? Looks good!

Also how does the eo tech work out for you on this rifle? Does it hold a zero well? What mount is that you have it on? Thanks.

I don't know YET! I have not even sighted it in yet. I just put it all together today. There is a slight problem with the handguard that I will have to have addressed before I can fire it. Other than that she is ready to go. I did shoulder the weapon and turned the sight on and liked the feel of it. I don't like that it does not have magnification but out to 100 yards I really won't need it probably. The mount is a scout scope mount from bc tactical a company in canada. There is a us company at scoutscopes.com that makes them but i didn't know about them until I had already bought the canadian mount. It is an ema extended mag release for akm. It just fits over top of the stock one and tightens down with two allen set screws. It comes with the allen wrench.

As a side not everyone that I have talked to recommended the scout scope mounts as they are the only one other than the drill and tap method that hold zero.

Wow that is a nice SKS! I have shot a friend's SKS last weekend and he is currently converting to 922r compliant. it definitely gives the rifle a more modern look.

I've got a para 16" SKS, that I am keeping stock. I just like the look of it that way.

If I had a few more SKS's, I would then possibly try and bubba-up one of them.

The cool thing about mine is it can revert back to stock fairly quickly. The only thing changed on it is the threaded barrel for a brake. I'm wondering if the assault weapons ban is going to pass. I am doubting it will but I do think the magazine capacity one will pass. Thus in going to have about eight 30 round magazines and two 20 round magazines that are useless to me. I'm glad I have a couple of 10 rounders and five rounders.

I haven't read the wording of the latest ban attempt, but the '94 bill allowed what you had. Only manufacture and importation were affected, IIRC

I hope to God it wasn't a Russian (especially a non refurb) or other valuable SKS variant.

Mine is 922r compliant. I'm not sure what will happen with this new bill.

Did you use the stock gas tube or did you get the Tapco Gas Tube with the Handguard already installed? I did opt for the Tapco Gas tube and haven't got around to putting the stock on. I'm worried that I will some how mess it up by grinding to much metal off. I've heard some people say to grind the tabs on the bottom of the handguard first and that will usually allow the gas tube to sit further down and create enough space for the latch to lock in place.

Can you explain how you fit the Tapco Gas Tube if that's the route you decided to go?

Original gas tube. I had a cheese grater installed on it. The original had tube fit really tight. I took it to a gunsmith and for five dollars they filed it down on the end ever so slightly, now it comes off without having to use alot of pull force. Apparently a lot of people are failing to read the original post as most everything (equipment used) and type of rifle are clearly explained.

Yeah,

But how many people do you know that have a sporter m like mine? Ak's are a dime a dozen and not as accurate as an SKS. It's really just that simple.

On a side note I ditched the red dot because it sat to high on the mount. I'm thinking of doing the tech sights rear and kns cross hair front sights.

Many, actually. Paras too. They aren't uber rare, and to be honest, fetch only a bit more in price than others in the stable. Silk purses and sows ears, and whatnot.

While I'd agree that the SKS has an accuracy advantage, it was never designed to have the features on them that make them what an AK already is. That advantage is slight, too, as I've seen and shot some fine AKMs that held groups better or comparable to the Simonov. Once again, silk purses.

I've not seen many m's. They along with the d are rare. There are very few on survivors sks boards. I paid 550 for mine which was in like new condition. I have seen the m, d, and nr go as high as 800.00 comparable to Russian sks's.

One sold on Guns America for $450, not too long ago.

An M in the St. Louis Area sat on Armslist for a week at $600 or so, price dropped, and sold for $425. I know this as I inquired shortly after it sold.

They're out there. You might get a second one to leave in stock configuration. The only SKS I really consider rare is the East German.

Throwing all this stuff on an SKS is no worse that dressing up an AK.

I actually prefer the SKS to the AK.
