Question about the SKS

2269 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.

You can buy the 10, 20 and 30 round detatchables at any gunshow, or order from a vendor in Shotgun News. Just remove the fixed mag, and swap in the detatchable. Voila. Be advised, though, that they aren't generally as reliable as the original fixed design.
It's also quicker and easier to reload with stripper clips, after a little practice. Those "duckbill" magazines are a pain in the ***.
Get a Chinese fixed twenty rounder, if you want a bit more capacity. Mine still wears the fixed ten. If I want to rock&roll, I break out the Bushpup.
