    SKS Model "M"

    Had not had this out for some time. Norcino SKS Model "M". Factory modified to take AK style mags. For those not familiar with them it is in original factory condition. An
    SKS version made for civilian market. When the factory converted them they lost the bolt hold open. To insert loaded mag have to manually hold bolt open as it won't lock
    in with bolt closed. BTW they cam from factory with 10rd mags.

    I had an M for quite a while until someone offered me really good money for it. Neat rifle, some of the earlier ones had a bolt hold open feature added to the bolt.

    I have no idea what they are worth in today's market? I have a number of SKS rifles and always enjoyed shooting them. Easy to handle and fairly accurate.

    I had one with the thumbhole, which if I remember correctly could take strippers, and I sold it for about 500 ten years ago.... Wish now that I'd kept it because it was a sweet little rifle. There aren't many 'M' models out there.

    I may have had a bad apple...but the one I had was a POC....never did hold the mag securely and never fed right...and they had to be "fit''...and the no hold open feature was a dog to do if you have a coordination problem....sold it for more than paid...so I came out ok

    probably had a bad one...

    There were some that were converted in the US by a company in CA. These are the ones that usually end up being super problematic. The Norinco factory built ones usually lock mags in like a champ. That magwell isn't really necessary, I had a fiberglass stock I had filled and relieved and the mags locked up tight and didn't wobble or anything.

    Mine is factory and mag locks up super tight. Admit it is a pain to hold bolt open, try to hold mag release lever and pop mag out all at the same time (LOL). BTW some time back I was curious if it
    would take 75rd AK drum. Found they would not lock in as the wood stock makes the mag well deeper. Sides of drum would hit stock before it could be rotated in.
