There is a really, really cool conversion kit for the SKS available now. It is built by Shernic Gun Works. www.sgworks.com It is about $200, and from
people I have talked to that have finally got their hands on one. (They are about 6 months behind on production due to overwhelming demand.) They
absolutely love them. It is a bullpup kit which puts the receiver, trigger group, and action in the butt of the stock next to your shoulder, and you
have a remote trigger linkage, and grip placed forward near the forearm of the gun. If you are unfamiliar with bullpup designs go to the website, and
you'll see what I mean. You get full length, full size 7.62x39 power in a 30" package. It works with defensive mags, or stripper clips. I ordered mine
March 1st, and they said not to start looking for it until June at the earliest.
Oh well... good things come for those who wait. I'll post an update
when i get mine, and let you know how it works. All the feedback I have read so far is extremely positive, and not just from the manufacture's site. I
have a friend in Florida that got his 2 weeks ago, and he says it made his old SKS "dinosaur" as much fun to shoot as his AR-15!!
