sounds great !!! I hope we get some pics when it showes up. I bought one as a miss matched poor wood condition , with a free new stock. when I got it , it was soooo gobbed with cosmo it would not be possable to grade it. when I cleaned off the outside I found a BEAUTIFULL , fully matching gun , as for the stock ,,,, the one on the gun was nicer than the new replacement they sent. Hopefully you will get as lucky as I did.
AGAIN post pics!!

I got 2 59/66's and you will not be dissapointed.

This has to be my favorite all time C&R rifle bar none. The only draw back is SKS's don't have removable mags. but I still love my Yugo's.

Imagine if they had made their cars this well?

There is a question I had about the SKS, If you replace both pistons and the stock with US made parts can you then use a removable magazine? Or do you need to replace even more with US parts or cut off the bayonet lug to make it legal?
I mean we get into the same parts count problem that we do with building an AK?right?

IIRC, a SKS has 18 "countable parts", only 4 or 5 of which are available US made.

There are some other threads here, dealing with this subject.

Actually, the SKS is not considered an "assault weapon". You will be altering it out of the C&R status, but unless you add a seperate pistol grip to it you should be OK adding a high cap magazine to it......for all the good it will do you. I've never seen a hi-cap work correctly in an SKS of any type. The bayonet can stay as the no-bayonet thing is only for Chinese guns to meet "sporting purposes".
Really, there is no reason to be adding one of those crappy "Hi-cap" mags to your SKS unless you really have a serious need to torture yourself. They suck. Get some strippers and practice reloading, it's surprising how fast they work once you get the hang of it. The SKS is *utterly* reliable with it's fixed ten rounder; it is guaranteed to be a jam-o-matic with a crappy "Hi-cap". I love my SKS's, and long ago gave up on all the aftermarket stuff made for them- 90 percent of it is crap. I keep my SKS's for the history and workmanship they exhibit, and my AK's for the big mags, seperate PG, and general servicability. Your SKS just isn't an AK, and I personally recommend against trying to make it one.
Still, that's just my opinion.
