SKS Accept AK Mags

Postby JuniorPre 360 » Wed Feb 06, 2013 10:49 am

Does anyone know the conversion process? I'd like the SKS to shoot with AK mags.

They shoot the same round but the AK mag will not seat and stay in the SKS.

I dont know then. I knew the round was the same round. I would of thought the mags would interchange. Post on here when you find out

From what I understand, There is an sks-m or something like that that that comes from the factrory to take ak mags but to convert it you are better off to get an ak. Like less than $600 ak at least.

I already have an AK. My little brother has an SKS and I was wanting it to accept the same mag. It looks like the mags of the AK have a lip on it. You'd have to take the SKS apart and mill out part of it in order for it to work. I haven't been able to find a drop in part.

A longtime ago there used to be a conversion kit that you could buy and have instelled by a gunsmith to convert your sks to accept AK mags. This conversion however was permanent and required some mods to the rifle. You can get detachable SKS mags, but they are different from AK mags. They have a tongue on the front of them.

I saw that. So I think I might just have to go with them.
