Upgrading the Yugo SKS with a stock and removable magazines seem like the way to go. I had wanted to do this for years, but the first modifications to accept the AK style mags were Iffy at best. The mods were pricy and many times Unsuccessful, so I would not spend the money for a Maybe.
Along comes the After market folks and after establishing a very good track record, I decided to take the plunge and give the old Yugo SKS a makeover.
After doing as much research as I could and reading articles and watching videos and corresponding with those that had done the Upgrade, I decided to go with the Tapco® products as much as possible.
I went with the TAPCO® SKS Railed Stock Without the BAYONET CUT, and the TAPCO® 20 round detachable Mags. The Scope Mount with 3 rail system as a part of the Spring Cover is not Tapco® and please watch the video about my concerns about it.
After overcoming the problems, I am very satisfied with the results. My SKS Yugo Upgraded Stock and Mag system is a great investment. I have links to where I got the best deals on the parts below the video.
You CAN get stocks With the Bayonet cut provision. If you want the stock that I used, you will need to remove the bayonet.
The video shows my efforts and problems that I encountered.
For the Magazines, the above Merchant has several brands. I could not get a good link from them, so Please just search when you get to one of the Stock pages.
