It's all good . I haven't heard anything from him since I sold it good or bad and I haven't seen it back up for sale here on the local gun Grapevine so I'm assuming that he got it fixed or something,, idk. as they say, no news is good news. Ima big SKS Junkie & every SKS I've had has been dead nuts reliable. However, with this one I was just glad to see it go because I was tired of screwing with it. IMO it was just a cheap production rifle made for the Western Market and setup to use AK mags as a sales gimmick. They have nothing to do with the type D or type 63 which were actual military rifles. So, I sold it and bought another military issue SKS. like all the others it's dead nuts reliablle with the factory 10 round box magazine and I like it.
