The local machinist doesn't do conversion work. Damn. Are there any famous retailers that do?

http://www.midwestordnance.com/

Is this the place that converted them originally?
(Note there is a lot of gibberish at the top of the page, just scroll down).

If your gun has a 20" barrel and takes standard AK mags, it's probably a D. If it has a 16" barrel and takes standard AK mags, it is certainly an SKS~M.

Thanks for everybody's posts so far...


there was a company called cobray ( not the cobray most think of) . these guys were in georgia . they were using the cobray name illegally. they made the kit you are woundering about. but they only come out of the wood works once in a blue moon and they are never complete kits. the people that made them are out of buisness. I talked to the cobray sales rep and this is what he told me.

The guy that does builds in the Shotgun news did this recently. Went into detail how he did it in the articles. He also played the 922r game, and tells you how to get the parts count right.
When we bought our Model M it was about $20 cheaper than a brand new Mak-90. Bought it as more of a curiosity at the time. I think it was $139 new.
With the cost of the SKS these days it is smarter just to buy a Model M or D. If I had the time and a mill, I'd make a Russian one.

oh, the horror

It can be done but it shouldn't be done because it makes the side walls of the receiver dangerously thin which could cause a castatrophic malfunction that your face will be next to. You can do by removing the material on the inside of the receiver to accommadate the AK mag giant pain because you are now working with case hardened steel (just drilling and tapping a mount can sometimes prove to be a bit killer). Then you will need to fabricate a mag latch not the easiest thing to do. There is a kit and it is extremely hard to find becuase of limited production and business failure however one does exist. It requires even more of the side walls to be removed then just fitting the mag into it. Your best options for detach mags (if that is the goal) at the moment is a mag block and modified tapco mags (20rds is the capacity).

Yes it can be done.
Is it worth it? Not In My Opinion.
You really need a Machine Shop or at least a Mill to do it right.
The "Dremel Method" is a Joke.
You will need to widen the mag well which will weaken the receiver.
You could possibly weld side plates to give it more strength.

SKS "M" and "D" models have a Metal Mag Well.
AK mags sit very deep in a SKS.
I owned a M and it was much harder to change mags on than an AK.

You'd be better off spending your money on a "M" or "D" or an AK Hunter.

20" Barrel, Milled Receiver and uses all AK mags even Drums.



This one's for sale on Gun Broker.

Why bother to do the job and risk making your SKS unreliable? With stripper clips you can reload the rifle quickly and as fast as a magazine change and it will work reliably.

Well Ill have to tell the 9 deer I have harvested with mine in the last 5 years that. It may not be a tack driver but out to 100 yds it hits the sweet spot everytime. Which here in North Ga is plenty of range.
