Before you get to excited about adding aftermarket parts you might want to check out Section 922R
Boy! What did I say to piss you off? You hurt my feelings. Just trying to be helpful and make you aware that changing parts even a mag can get you into trouble. Carry on!.Not to sound like a smarta$$ but Tapco is American made and from the way it sounds it can't be more than 10 foreign parts?? Also I never said I was making tons of modifications...my only plans for the gun is the new mag for target shooting and a new dust cover so I can add a scope for hunting for use with original 10 round piece. Shouldn't make assumptions.
No experience with the aftermarket mags but I do have experience with the Yugo SKS. You'll love that rifle, they shoot great and no recoil to speak of. I love mine.
How do you fire with an empty chamber?I like stripper clips. I don't currently own an SKS, but I have owned a Russian and a Yugo in the past. The high capacity mags work, but can't be changed out real quick because you have to pull back the latch while seating the mag with the other hand, stripper clips can be loaded one handed quicker and can also be used to reload AK mags if you have the guide. An SKS should fire with an empty chamber if the safety is off.
