Ok read on a few boards about useing AK mags in an SKS....people kept saying needed to make some modafacation but not what they are?....So Ill bite...is it posible?, a easy conversion or simaler to converting my 25acp to shoot 50 BMG?
I just cant see why you would want a 30 rd mag when your only firing semi auto. I have a Thompson w/ a 30 rnd stick and its a pain in the ***. I can see why the U.S. Gov. went with a 20 rd. stick in WWII. The SkS really wasnt designed for it(30 rd stick). If it flips your switch I guess go for it. But I think they stick out like a sore thumb.
As long as the SKS was purchased before the high cap ban in 94, who's to say the mag was not all ready in. I am not going to tell them. my SKS had a 30 rd mag , in 1987. And your right who would wan't one. Took mine back out in 1987. Original 10 rd mag faster and easyer to load, with stripper clips. If you buy a SKS pre-ban with a bayonet, you don't have to take it off, just becouse you purchased it after 1994.
i remember seeing an ad in shotgun news awhile back for a conversion kit to enable ak mag use in an sks,not sure who had it. i'll do some digging and see if i can find it.even though the sks is the easiest gun i've ever seen to load w/strippers,i like the idea of just yanking the empty out and stuffing in a fresh load.think i might use one of the factory 20 rounders just the same since they don't get in the way as bad.
