    SKS mag release

    I came across this upgrade that lets you change detachable SKS mags as you would an AK.

    Looks like this could make the SKS a more viable option for those of us stuck in NewYorkistan.

    Plus us there is a bolt mod that lets you release and reload on a closed bolt (not machinegun style)

    It's an semi, nothing detachable!!! The safe act dictates that anything semi-auto can have a removable mag unless it's a .22.

      Umm... Pretty sure it's good to go so long as there are no other features.

      Also it's a semi- auto (no auto in NY), my open bolt was not related to non semi fire only to the ability to load with a round in the chamber. The exclusion for 22 is for tube fed mags over 10rds.

        Haven't they been making 10, 20 and 30 round quick detach mags for the SKS for years?

        This just seems like a lever mag release more like an AK than pulling it back against the spring. Or maybe I'm missing something....

          Not even close to compliant.
          Safe act says if "semi-auto it CAN'T have a detachable mag (actually says it can't have the ability to ACCEPT a detachable mag)"
          I'll standby and watch as you show it to Troop L and try to get their approval.

          Saying we don’t need firearms because we have the Police is like saying we don’t need fire extinguishers because we have the Fire Department.

            Yes, you're right it is semi not auto. I have never seen an SKS without features. Are you plan on cutting everything off or do they sell them "naked".
            this could get interesting, please keep us in the loop of what you do and what happens.

              SKS converted to removable mag must have NO other "evil features". Lose the bayonet assembly, keep the issued wood stock (or a plastic stock of similar shape…. no pistol grip) and no grenade launcher if starting off with a Yugo. Max 10 round mag capacity and you're good to go.
              Exercise the Bill of Rights. It's good for your Constitution.

                Not entirely true. It downgraded the aw test to 2 features instead of 3.

                Semiauto with detachable mag - check
                pistol grip - negative
                flash hider/muzzle break - negative
                forend ventricle grip - negative
                bayonet - check

                this would be consider a assault weapon. Cause NY fucking blows.

                  Should I assume that you don't have any semi auto rifles with mags? Min14, AR with Thordsen, M1A, Saiga etc.

                  If you are going to try being a smart ass, at least have correct info

                    Yup. That would be the idea. When Saiga were cheaper, there was no reason to mod an SKS but with prices, it may make sense for someone to mod an existing rifle.

                      If I remember correctly, they all have bayonet lugs or mounts, which ATF at one time said is required to import them into the USA under C&R eligibility . Not my idea but check ATF rules. In fact you could be bound up (federal) if you don't have a bayonet. lol

                        Found a better explanation:
                        "Based on what I've been told about the M59/66, legally you can't take the bayonet off. They have features that would ordinarily cause it to be banned as a non-sporting rifle (bayonet, night sights, and grenade launcher) But the were given a pass as a curio & relic. But removing the bayonet would disqualify it as a C&R, so you would have to add the required number of American-made parts on it just like on an imported AK".

                          Why are you focusing on the C&R aspect? I don't have a C&R license, yet my purchase of an SKS was perfectly legal.

                            Wow, ... This is interesting, I remember right after SAFE act(when everyone had no idea what was, or was not GTG, even moreso than today)a couple of LGS had SKSs, with the bayo lugs removed. One such specimen actually had the filings still laying on the barrel!

                              How the product worked was not clear to me until I watched the below video. I was well aware of the aftermarket SKS removable magazines and I didn't initially realize that the product is a mag release button.

                              The video is painfully long.
