John Kerr: I had one put on mine in the nineties never liked the way it worked. but
there was no youtube back then.
JON H: @ jusmead.
the majority of people are too scared that they will freak up their bolt
with the mod. Its fuggin simple though. All you need is a rotary tool
(dremel) and a good fine grindin tip. You will also need alittle bit of
creativity too of course. lol
swiftjeff: @bearfoot25 I have the mag adapter and modded a new mag today. Used a
hacksaw and a duckbill from an old tapco mag to mark where I needed to cut.
Took about 30 min. Takes 10 min with a band saw. Just follow the
instructions and you're fine. You can always purchase pre modded tapco
mags. Google 'truly tactical'.
67mustangreg: so it used regular ak47 mags or what? like a model D???
SmittyWerbenjager Manjenson: Dont know what you mean, my Yugo operates flawlessly, maybe you just suck
at cleaning your weapon.
Murraysguns: You're absolutely right, on all 3 counts. :)
rocityzfinest: WOOH!! I LIKE!!
tk9hydro: Hey were can I find tat add on for the sks..to make it look like ur..
RHAYES04: this is the old style adaptor. the new style does not need the pin through
Murraysguns: @tk9hydro thesksmagadapterdotcom
Murraysguns: @voodazz Marcus has one featuring Galahad on the site thesksmagadapterdotcom
Asgard Beast: Honestly, I have looked at many modifications for my SKS magazines, but in
the end, I haven't found anything that catches my interest, especially
considering the fact that the regular Tapco "DuckBill" Magazines have been
performing just fine for me. I suppose there would be a small advantage in
not having the "duckbill" but I haven't had any issues that would cause me
to think there was enough benefit to justify the additional costs and
modifications to my rifle. Just my opinion however.
Murraysguns: @blackbeard456 Kicks almost enough to wish I wasn't so good at what I do?
jackhammerMean: Although this video did not help me find a mag adapter for a reasonable
price and convenience, It did tell me why my rifle isn't firing correctly.
That freaking grenade launcher pin! Thank you!
KanyonWilson: Selly-er and bell-ot XD
Murraysguns: Yes, it does violate 922r and causes you to have to replace original parts
with parts that are "Made in USA." I would recommend you contact Marcus at
thesksmagadapterdotcom to determine stock compatibility.
voodazz: I would be awesome if you made a video tutorial on how to install this.
Jusmead: you should have one of your gas valves in the thing so no more mistakes
also you should shave the bolt to allow instilation and removal of mag with
the bolt forward oh and you need to rasp the magwell of the wood stock to
make sure the tapco mag doesnt get pinched
HHH100: Never cared for the Yugo version of an SKS. Too many gas system problems
and checks to make. Also, never modify an SKS for detachable mags. The ten
round stripper clips work just fine as designed. If you want detachable?
Then get an AK.
Murraysguns: @RHAYES04 You're exactly right. Apparently the new version clamps to the
lug on the underside of the barrel that the mag would normally key into.
bber45: nice shooting. Good looking SKS as well
187SicknesS: not a fan of yugos but that is a mighty lovely mod you have there.
Murraysguns: @rachee23 Nothing, that I know of. And no, you won't be able to use Tapco
20s that still have the duckbill on them. The adapter simply allows you to
remove that duckbill, so it will fit in mag pockets in vests etc, and you'd
need to remove the adapter to use a Tapco 20 that still has its duckbill.
....You're exactly right! "Managable."
dreamfox1313: I don't think you could since to use striper clips would take a total of 9
moves and a 30 round mag. only takes 3 moves.
Murraysguns: @13Rudyb Yes it does. And for Walt's benefit, it's Wolf ammo, and Wolff Gun
milwaukeegregg: Why bother when the standard tapco duck bills are fine!! Spend the money on
a good trigger job!! Not a fan of yugos, nice furniture but heavy as hell
ARTONY92: @212driller- a guy on the sksboards (.com) sells them.
damiion666: What is the legality of converting an sks to take this mag adapter and a
detachable 20-round mag? Does it violate 922r? Also, what kind of stocks
are compatible with the mag adapter/tapco 2-round mag without having to do
too much stock "relieving"? I've been thinking of replacing my wood stock
with one of those butler creek stocks. I kinda want to keep the same style
in a polymer look.
13Rudyb: Thankyou mr. Murray. I just dropped my bolt in the mail for the new pin and
drop free bolt mod... I can't wait to get it back a take it to the range...
John Boucher: That is really great!! I want one!
bearfoot25: Still havent decided wether im going to give this a try or not. Im just
afraid I will mess up my Tapco Mag and throw $20 away!!!
Murraysguns: @67mustangreg Modified Tapco 20 round mags are used with this adapter.
RHAYES04: i have been helping marcus some, yes the new one is clamped to the lug with
a tailpiece. that is gen 3. there is also a gen 5 (as of about a week ago)
that will be in process. you may want to look at his sksforums for an
update. i think you will be impressed.
212driller: whered you get that from? that would be awesome to be able to convert my
sks to a detachable mag!
HHH100: Never owned a Yugo. Cleaning is not a problem. I just prefer to have
minimal concerns in operation of such.
13Rudyb: @murraysguns. Does the yugo being used have your famous firing pin with the
8SiCK0LAKE1: I would love that adapter well at least the newer versions of it, but the
price is asking for too much.
Chris Crap: Im trying to get some info on these mag adapters because theres somethings
I dont understand. Besides eliminating the duckbill and more round capacity
what else does it do? Will I not be able to use tapco 20 rounders with a
duckbill? Im thinking it just makes the mags a little more managable, then
again I could be wrong. I new a SKS owner so Im trying to get as much info
as can. Would appreciate a reply, Thank you.
