    Did you apply the Dura Coat yourself?

    How do you like the stock?

    I have one of these Tapco stocks on my yugo sks. I'TS AMAZING. I can't understand how a simple stock swap can make the rifle feel totally different. It now handles like an AR with a 20" HBAR. I could not be any happier with mine and it is worth every penny.:) :D

    Tapco stocks

    I'm not familiar with these stocks: did you have to move the trigger forward ... [editted out personal confusion...see below]?

    I did not have to do anything abnormal. I just removed the old stock, and dropped the rifle into this one. Simple and easy.

    Sorry, my bad. Had a brain freeze and confused Saigas with pistol grips and SKSs with pistol grips... nevermind.

    Do they make that stock in Coyote/tan?

    Im thinking of doing the same thing, as its Kali legal and pretty mean looking. I was also thinking of doing the techsights rear aperature, with a red dot replacing the existing rear ramp sight, but I havent seen that done as of yet.

    I think I might want to pick up a stock and some Dura Coat for mine. I have the web page of a smith that does trigger jobs, add a peep sight and maybe a red dot.

    Yes, but you have to follow the prep instructions to the letter. This rifle has been riding for about 6 months in the back of my Cherokee during the hottest, most humid summer we've had in about 10 years(global warming, I guess:rolleyes: ). No rust.

    Stock is very nice, like Jackal said, makes it feel totally different. Mine came all black. I painted the body and handguard with 4 coats of Krylon OD and kept the pistol grip and buttstock black.

    Hmm.. I been thinking of bubba'izing my SKS with that stock. But then you gotta part the 10 parts game. IIRC, the entails replacing the fixed mag with a US made one. I hear those arent too reliable.

    I'm pretty sure that the Tapco sks stock has enough US made parts to keep the BATF happy. Here are a few pics of my Unissued Yugo.

    I usually hate the thoughts of an SKS but this is a really nice one I like the looks of.

    I forgot about the 10 part rule. Is it illegal to just change the stock out, or do I have to play the 10 part game? I don't know if it's any different but I live in CA. If I'm assuming I need to play the 10 parts game, if I change the stock out, the operating rod, and the gas piston, is that enough for the 922(r)?

    To Jackal, the stock consists of 3 U.S. made parts as listed on their website.

    Thanks in advance,

    Matt.
