Question about the SKS

2271 Views 14 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Gyrene
OK, I bought my brother an SKS and I was wondering something. Is it possible to convert it so that I could use a magazine? It's currently attached. I'm sorry, I don't know a lot about the SKS. It's my brothers birthday pretty soon. He told me he'd love it if had a detachable mag. So I thought I'd see if it could be done. Can it? Thanks guys.

your a funny man ltcboy lol. The way this mag thing works in canada( as far as i understand it) is that you can have a detachable mag for your sks, but it will be pinned to five rounds. the same goes for any mag that once held more than five rounds with the exception of handgun mags. they can hold 10 rounds. also Garands are exempt because of their en-bloc style of loading. you could buy a 75 round drum mag but it would be blocked by a simple pop rivet to hold 5 rounds or less. And the mags are harder to find and more costly than they are in the US. I think that about sums it up, if you have any questions just e-mail me and i will see if i can answer them.
