    Okay...I know that the answer for hi-cap mags on SKSs is usually a strong NO, but has anyone tried Rifletech's magazines? Not the duckbills, but the ones they make themselves.

    Really, I'm just interested in capacity. I don't care whether or not it's removable, because I really like the whole loading from the top thing, I'd just rather have more than 10 rounds.

    rifletech...

    Rifletech, iirc, is the same company as DC Engineering.

    I and others I know have not had good experiences with this company. They have a reputation for outrageous claims and poor service.

    Judge for yourself, of course, but be careful and talk to someone who has specifically used the product you're wanting..

    They are the greatest...just call them and they'll tell you.

    SKS Mags.

    There used to be non-detachable 20-rounders on the market, but not sure anymore.

    Do be aware that if you want to go with a detachable mag for an SKS, you first have to convert the SKS to a "domestic" rifle by replacing enough foreign-made parts that you have no more than 10 imported parts in the rifle, as defined by a BATFE list. Just slapping a detachable mag into an SKS imported after 1989 or so is a Federal felony violation of 18 USC 922(r).

    Tapco (www.tapco.com) sells U.S.-made compliance parts to allow you to legally customize your SKS with different mags and adjustable/folding stocks and such.

    USA duckbills have a good reputation but mine have not been reliable. I have had some jams and stovepipes. You must decide whether you want to trade complete reliability with the original mag for higher capacity and less frequent reloading.
