From ashes is born: SKS combat project.
« on: April 04, 2017, 02:29:19 PM »
Hello everyone. New here but not to sks. Ive owned a chinese type 56 and loved it but had to let her go. So years ago in my younger days i thought to build my own sks well the project lost steam quickly. Now here i am back with more knowledge and the will. First off im not doing this because i cant afford a ak. Im doing this because i have a yugo 56/66 reciever lying around lol. I want to make a more compact sks battle rifle but still retain the original nature. I wont be using no goofy black plastic or scopes. First off i got a chinese 56 barrel and after long hand filing got the barrel torqued. Next step is cutting the barrel to the first step or roughly 17 inches and checking whether i need to open up my gas whole. And yes there will be progress pics as soon as i figure out how to post them.

Hi...and welcome  thumb1

I would suggest since you replaced the barrel...check the headspace, least for safety sakes. If it's correct, great, carry on.
I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse......

Leave the gun take the cannoli.

Where's it? 
      
1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms... It doesn't matter how many Lenins you get out on the street begging for them to be taken.
