    Howdy, folks. If you don't know, the barrel on some models of SKS rifles are equipped to fire a rifle-grenade. In CA, it is illegal to have that "grenade launcher" on your barrel. If one has a regular SKS, would it be possible to convert it to be CA compliant or would you have to speak with a gunsmith?

    You can remove it without harming the gun or the launcher. You have to make a clamp to use in a vise to unscrew it. I saw the article on one of the milsurp sites.

    I don' t think that you're going to be able to find any in CA anyways. I know that you've just joined the military, do you really have any time to leave the state, buy a SKS and bring it back?

    Much easier to buy a Norinco.

    For the Yugo M59/66's to be sold in CA, the importer must remove the GL and install a muzzle break. Call Turners in San Marcos. They're not far from Camp Pendleton and usually sell Yugo SKS's for 180-200. That's where I got mine.

    Check out the SKS at the bottom of the page here.. you can see what the CA muzzle break looks like.. http://petesdiscountfirearms.com/ZastavaSKS.html
