    I was considering putting on an ATI stock for this SKS Sporter, but decided to modify it with a Dremel in the meantime. I think it really improved the looks and feel of the grip. Sanded the whole stock and finished it with some clear deck oil that I had laying around (mostly linseed oil anyway)

    The wood was really soft, but has a nice grain to it. It is a very lightweight stock. The gun shoots pretty well. The trigger is long, but breaks pretty cleanly with almost no overtravel.

    Gun is pictured with a 5 round mag, but will take any AK magazine. In my opinion the SKS is a better design. You can't have a full auto AKM/ AK-47 anyway, so comparing them both as semi-auto designs I give the nod to the SKS. This gun takes AK mags, so you get the best of both.

    VERY NICE JOB. I was also working on an SKS stock over the past several days. I'd post pic's, but there is a ban against the type of hideous visuals that are the result of my ham handed wood shop efforts. I will be getting the ATI stock, now out of necessity instead of as an option.:uhoh:

    Well I never touched the stock but it is in the spirit of the name. I did an AR-15 lower with a dremel and hand tools. Nice job.
