Could be the wrong forum, but here's my plight. Over the last year or so, I've acquired my first "commercial" production SKSs, although I already had a BTC spiker Para, and a PS marked weapon. Anyway, I've picked up a few more Paras, and a couple late '80s rifles. In noting the K-Sport FSB mod, I thought I might give it a go on a project. The general mentality in the past has been "If you're going full Bubba, at least use a cheap Chinese", which is exactly what the importers did, back in the hey day of commercial offerings.
But that was then, this is now. At this point I'm hesitant to sacrifice anything matching or obviously scrubbed, simply because these are all there are. I like to tinker, and I'm getting ready to fire up the Khyber Pass Fabrication squad, and give a go at replicating or cloning what was once available to the not so handy. As it stands in my stash:
Donor #1 is a parts built pinned barrel spiker rifle, with only the receiver (recognized serial #) not matching everything else. GO
Donor #2 is an all matching (including wood) early /26\ that someone previously drilled 2 tiny holes in the receiver & NOTCHED the stock. GO
Donors #3 - #7 all matching Sinobanians...
My other candidates got turned into an SVT40.
These abominations will be "What I would've done did, if I'd be the one done did it" themed.
What say ye? PAX
