Just bought an SKS last weekend at a gun show for $250, lookin at some work to do to it, I'm really intriged by this bolt mod. Effectively, it allows you to drop/insert a mag with the bolt closed. I found a thread about it on another forum, (http://www.sksboards.com/smf/index.php?topic=23876.0) but I'm a member here, so I figured I'd post here My questions are; Anyone done this mod? Does it affect accuracy? I would think it would cause the bolt to lock up less consistently, I'm trying to make a 3 gun rifle that will compete with guys in my club with ARs, and I wanna make em cry with my rifle that cost 1/4 of thiers Does it affect reliability? Such as the bolt cocking down because of the lower rails being ground off? From what I understand, this is just emulating the SKS-M and D bolts, that use the AK mags, so in effect, it's just a re-manufacture of something that's battle proven. Anyone have different results?
