Ive been saveing up my pennies and being nice to the wife to get an AK since the hicap magazines are so available. Im looking for a S_hits the fan gun more than anything else. I tried one of the after market 30 round mags before but it did not work...the bolt would not close with it in place (yes with rounds in it)... What is everyones experiences with after market mags for the SKS? Are they worth it? Any brand the best? Best place to get them? IF I could get good results with the detachable mags then I may just use the sks and spend the $$ on a diffrent toy than the AK...thanks for the input.
