Straight pull SKS bolt action
« on: February 11, 2019, 10:33:14 PM »
I have a rather scruffy Chinese military SKS that I made into a straight pull bolt action simply by finding the right sized  allen head screw at the Co-op next door and screwing it into the hole from the barrel to the gas piston.  Didn't thread the hole, as the screw fits the hole just right and was short enough to not stick out inside the barrel.  Cost under  50 cents.  Why?  Not for any reason other than I wanted to try.  :)

Leave the gun – take the cannoli.
