The SKS was never meant to accept detachable mags. I believe that Norinco did sell one that used AK mags for awhile, but the receiver was milled completely different. Don't waste your money on something that will be unreliable. With practice you'll be able to load it with stripper clips at a very quick rate. The SKS doesn't lend itself to scope mounting either, but try these sights:
They are reliable and similar in design to AR sights.
I am not downing your weapon, so please don't be offended. The SKS was meant to be a easily operated, utterly reliable fighting tool, and for the most part it shines in that role.[/rquote]
I have to agree. I orginally bought my SKS to do some long range shooting, 200+ yards, like a poor man's AR-15, but it's not. Without some serious gunsmithing, there doesn't seem to be a reliable scope mounting method. So, I removed the scope, installed a peep site, and added a Tapco stock. Now is is a very deadly short range gun (100 yards) and will be great when the zombies come.
