Oh, Moss................... Keep your Chikom in its original configuration. It will serve you without fail in the form it was designed to (By the Russkomz). I've been the failed route of biting on all the aftermarket goodies (scopes, mounts, deflectors, bipods, stocks, hi-cap mags etc.) and have relegated them all to a storage box in the basement.

It's a light and handy carbine that functions very well as-is. All that other stuff will either make it heavy, less manageble or hinder its reliability. You don't need a scope to hit "bad-guy" size targets (even in the head*) at 300 yards. The cartridge will not be as effective at longer ranges as many others with better ballistics anyway.

(* please note that I do not advocate shooting at people..........just commenting on the capabilities the weapon was designed with).

Nice 500A, the cleanest and easiest thing you can do is to put a cheese grater hand guard on a wood stock. For some reason they look very cool on wood furniture. Keeping it other wise original in the most functional. But I like the way a pistol grip stock handles so I've got one of each set up.

Which stock is on there? If you like the stock, you may want to consider adding a Williams FireSight (fiber front sight) or I recently saw AmeriGlo has a tritium front sight for the SKS now.

Moss, Check these guys out for SKS parts : www.sarcoinc.com.
Scroll-down about halfway to where you see the three dates for Shotgun News ads. Click on the latest (Sept-1) and go to page C-1 of the ads. You'll see a bunch of ads for parts, and at the right there are two SKS survivor kits (A & B). "B" will give you a slug of essential repair parts, including a wood stock set. I've bought several and love them.

They also have sight adjustment tool on there.

Leave the gun as-is. You can spend a fortune trying to make it look like an AK or M-4. Spare parts, yes a good Idea. Puting high tech stocks and optics on it is just a waste imho.

I did a paratrooper conversion on mine, it makes it handier as a utility rifle. Other than that, most aftermarket stuff is just for looks. I was forced to use the tapco magazine fro two of my 922(r) parts... Ugghh I hate it. No opening floorplate! so when you want to unload it means sitting there and cycling the action 10 times... Not to mention it protrudes far beneath the weapon for no reason at all other than to look cool. It really makes prone shooting annoying.

After having that "paratrooper" for a while I sold it.

I now agree with the "leave it alone" crowd... I picked up a Romanian, threw tech sights on it, and could not be happier with it. I truly regret chopping that poor yugo... Such a dumb idea.

I finally sold my last Yugo M59/66A. My son wanted one and then I put the last one in a local ad to find a buyer who appreciated them. Still have one Yugo though. It's an M59 (without the G/L and all the other stuff). Much handier but not as much so as my sweet Chikomz. I've managed to acquire a couple more of those too of late.

The M59/66'a are fine weapons. Just a little too bulky and heavy for my taste. All my SKS's are now as-issued too except the Chikoms which have no attached bayo's and then there's one of them with a TechSight which is very nice.

Sorry Kev. I'm old school and just don't have a way to post pics. Started late in the computer game as well and have a hard time with tech/computer stuff. My generation is older and when I was in H.S. the typwriters we learned on weren't even electric and they still struck with individual letter keys.
