All of these options I list could be state illegal so check with your particular state before making such addons.
As for the stock question, the best idea I can think of is go to a gun store and hold a standard stock weapon as well as a thumbhole stock and a
pistol grip style.
Whichever feels best you will probably shoot better with.
As for scope, there are not many options out there available to the sks without interfering with the stripper clips.
So you will probably have to give up one for the other.
As for detachable magazines, as someone stated above the good ones will cost you more than a good ak-47.
I had bought some knock offs and seating was a pain and a half, then I bought a 20 round fixed magazine that fed only on days that did not end in
10 round fixed factory magazine for me from then on.
As for the left hand issue and owning a communist based, you will only be right handed type gun, …. …well you know by now a deflector is your only
Sometimes they deflect back to the breach and that sucks.
As for a sniping weapon I have shot mine from around 200 yards pretty darn accurate but the weapon was not designed to snipe.
Get a Remington 700 for that as they are pretty cheap nowadays and I would arguably say they are the best overall bolt action out there.
Inexpensive, lightweight, multiple calibers, ambidextrous, many aftermarket parts, Etc. Etc. Etc.
Not THE best but high on the overall scale.
There are better options out there other than what you have in a sks but I have a soft spot for mine as it is simply just a great gun, it is the
Chinese answer to the Garand, of which I also have a soft spot for.
