These spread out one's were as fast as I could pull the trigger.  The one ragged hole is where I was sighting in the magpul mbus. The bulls eyes are where I got the irons and the holosun green dot sighted in.  It's only from 25 yards off hand. Id say it could do alot better at 100 with a variable power scope.

Once I get the american defense co witness quick release mount painted then I'll remove the one from holosun that's on it right now and get it off the handguard.

Looks like a very serviceable setup  thumb1 I assume it ran well with respect to feeding and cycling?

120 rounds thus far with no malfunctions.  The only problem I had is a couple times when I was shooting it the mag dropped out and onto the ground.  You gotta really push hard to get it to click in fully.

Very nice, but why is it called a KS-47 instead of an AR-47. Had to ask, it's the way my mind works, LOL.
My Avatar is a pic of the real "Ghost" SKS in honor of xxxsks(joe). It is a pic of a fully decked out SKS in Capco hunter's kit. This was mine, the only other pic I had ever seen of one was Joe's.

The KS takes AK mags.  The AR takes...  you guessed it, AR style mags.  AK mags are far more reliable in an x39 platform.

Yeah, but the lower is fashioned after the AR so why not AR(For Stoner design)-47(for AK mag setup). That's what I'm getting at.

I have more parts to build another ar15 in 7.62x39 using c products defense mags. The only reason I got this one is I have two ak's and two sks's that take ak mags so everything can be consolidated now.

I've looked at these a couple of times.
Never too hard though. I prefer the original platform(s) for that caliber.

They sure are a cool variant though. Appears that they're pretty accurate, too.
