They however have been hard to find ,and draw a strong premium over a standard SKS .
Well made and reliable.
There are two types.
The Norinco SKS-D and the Norinco SKS-M.
If you want an SKS that takes detachable magazines, these are the ones you want.
100% better than using the duckbill magazines in a normal SKS.
Is it a factory SKS designed to accept AK mags, or is it a "Bubba Upgrade"?
The former is great, although mag changes are greatly different from the AK.
The latter should be avoided.
Yes, I do.
Still stand by my statement.
SKS-M Love it.
I had an unfired sporter in the box with all accessories. It looked like the one above but with a thumbhole stock. It sold for $500 w/in the last 6 months.
I've seen the D's go for $650-$700+
we have one just like the one in nc mikes pic up there.
not spectacular accuracy, ak-ish, maybe a bit better.
100% reliable and very handy, being so short (we have the paratrooper model like mikes.
the factory built sks rifles that take the ak mags are getting harder to find for a reason.
i prefer that particular model over the ak. its a nice little rifle.
And, at the range, you will shoot atleast 100% more ammo as well!
I always thought mine was an SKS-D, not that the paperwork really identified it. Mine has no "thumbhole-stock" as a previous post said differentiated the -M and -D. So... What's the difference between an SKS-M and and SKS-D?
just about exactly when we got ours too, and about the same price too. 179.99 i think it was
Norinco. During the early to mid 1990s.
Don't know if the magazines have improved, but back in the early to mid 1990s, they were crap.
Faster to just use stripper clips than the duckbill magazine.
The "Concise Instruction For 7.62x39 SKS" that came with it.
Four 8.5"x5.5" pages, written in Engrish. ...Sorta.
What would actually make them "true"? Or on The other hand, what makes the Yugo not "true"?
