    My SKS is currently my favorite rifle. Its a Chinese type 26 and was rebarreled with what appeared to me as a brand new Russian barrel.

    I refinished it, did the trigger myself and put tech-sights on it. Its stupid accurate for what it is. I pulled a couple MOA groups from the bench on a good day. Minute of man all day standing.

    I've played around with the idea of modding it to take AK mags but I honestly like the gun for what it is. And I honestly dont want to have to deal with 922r compliance/making myself a felon... it'd be really nice to have the option though.

    Sorry to hear about the ways yours is shooting GS. Maybe a cut back and recrown could help it out? I also highly recommend the tech-sights if you feel the scope isn't working out. The sight radius you achieve is outrageous.

    I enjoy the 20 rounder chinese mags.no 922 regs but the 5 rounder for the house is the most comfortable.I cut down a stripper clip from 10 to 5 rounds to recharge the mag.

    Anyone else read SGN articles on converting your sks to ak mags? Good read but if you got your rifle on the cheap kinda pricey.

    I had some of the original "Zytel cobray sks 40 rounders" and they were trash if you filled the mag it wouldn't load, put 30 rounds in and 5 would fire before a jam if I was lucky.

    I think the barrel needs to be recrowned, it should have a rolled edge like the outside.
    And try a couple brands of ammo if you can.

    All this talk of SKS's made me break out mine to play with.

    These are both 59 Yugo's and I love the ATI Draganov stocks even though there heavy as hell. They fit me perfect. The unmolested one you can see still has the arsenal tag attached and had never been issued or fired and the trigger and internals are still packed with cosmoline. The other was an excellent condition one . One from Samco, and one from Century I don't remember just which is which though. The fired one shoots great and you can see it's nothing fancy. I intentionally found a mount that was advertized as needing final fitting and built over sized. A bit of judicious fitting and it's still solid as a rock after Lord knows how many rounds. Just a cheapy 4X too, but a nice clear no name one.

    It does everything I want an SKS to do, and better than lots of others I've had, 1"- 1 1/2" MOA is a snap with it.
