Paratrooper once could be had with detachable AK mags.

I could hit a cinder block at 400 yards consistently with a nice standard SKS.

Used to have a bunch of em in late 80s early 90s.

I have a Russian built SKS. Better fit and finish than a Chinese.

I've seen great examples from both countries and same for the opposite. This is not a discussion of that though. Was wanting feedback on the paratrooper version which are all Chinese.

I gave a pretty nice 1955 Russian SKS to my stepson about 20 years ago ,
I should have kept it.

I got a little book that tells how to modify the SKS for different things, the AK mag mod, the rock n roll mod, etc. I don't trust myself to do the AK mag mod. If I had one like yalls as a pattern maybe I would try. You used to could buy a Chinese 20 rnd fixed mag, but I've not seen those advertised in a long time. 10 rnds is plenty to hunt with.

I'm leaving this one alone save for maybe removing the spike, and a trigger job. Those 20rd fixed mags don't do it for me.

If the bayonet has never been removed and the screw is still staked, I would just leave it. Someday it will definitely add value to the rifle. And actually I really think they look kind of funny without the bayonet and that lug hanging down.
