Poor man's SOCOM

    Got this the other week. It's my poor man's SOCOM rifle.

    [​IMG]

    It's a Norinco SKS 7.62x39. It came with the stock in the picture, a Tapco T6 stock, 2 other compiste stock, the ATI Monte Carlo stock

    [​IMG]

    and the ATI ultralight folding stock

    [​IMG]

    It also came with the original fixed 10-round mags and a detachable 37-round USA mags (shown in the picture) , stripper clips and lots of ammo. It also came with see-through receiver mount, TAPCO high visibility front sight. The original wooden stock and the folding bayonet is missing, but what the heck, for the price I got it, it's a real bargain.

    All I need to convert the rifle into this is the bipod, scope and either a flash-hider or muzzle brake.

    Weight of the rifle wearing the Tapco T6 stock is a little less than 7 lbs. empty

    Holy ***** you have 2 SKS? How about the bayonet in the other one? You still have it?

    I think the other one (below) is a Yugo as it looks like it's wearing a refle grenade launcher and sight.

    USA 30-round and Tapco 20-round are said to be the best hi-cap mags for the SKS though the original fixed 10- round is still the best and most reliable. I intend to use the fixed 10-round so I won't have problems going prone.

    I have decided that I will remove that see-through rail on the receiver cover as it is not the best place to install a scope. Until I figure how to scope the rifle my SKS will be wearing the ATI monte carlo stock

    But I will probably leave the T6 handguard on as it the rail channel gives me this sight picture. Very quick to acquire. My front sight wears the Tapco hi visibility front sight post.

    If you have plans to sell the SKS on top please let me know. Maybe a few months later will be good.

    No, i only inherited the one on top and the ak below it, the other ak and sks belongs to a friend, the pic was taken during one of those "show and tell things".
    I'll ask him about the bayonet he removed and if he wants to sell it Ill pm you.

    Thanks.

    Please also ask him if he still has the original wooden stock and if he would be interested in trading it with me for an ATI Monte Carlo stock.
