View Full Version : How to Fix SKS Mags that Suck

January 3, 2013, 04:35 PM
I have bought, as I'm sure many of you have, those aftermarket steel sks mags that always seem to bind up, misfeed, malfunction, and generally suck all around. I found a relatively simple fix that anyone can do, with a file and a little patience.

Interesting handy-work.
By now I've given up on all mags that aren't original. I resorted to trading the after-market crap for boxes of ammo.
And what the heck kind of Frankenstein sks is that? You must really hate good old-fashioned wood stocks and iron sights.

What is wrong with the stock internal 10-rounder?

Mine works, is impossible to lose, and is pretty speedy with the stripper clips.

Some people like to have more than ten round magazines. Plus his was converted to a bullpup design and I suspect you can't top load those.
