    ARMSLIST - For Sale: Norinco SKS-M

    Looks like its too short to me. When you see something you think may get them in trouble do you point it out to them. I dont wanna look like a jerk.

    Yea it's legal. I had a 16" SKS Cowboy Companion and they just look short like that.

    Yup, like everybody sez, on my M the barrel extends 7" past the fore-end, the one on Armslist has a muzzle brake which makes it even longer...I don't care much for the "Planet of the Apes" stock on that one, but they are great little rifles. BTW check out what the Mod. M's go for on Gunbroker..

    It's legal. Also hard to find, that isn't a bad price. The M and D model Sporters weren't
    imported for long.

    Norinco made a paratrooper version of the SKS with a 16 inch barrel. Looks like that except has a regular stock.

    I would not buy that but find it kind of cool.

    It's the paratrooper model, Norinco MC5D. I still have one I bought about 17 years ago. Great rifle.

    A stock that ugly should be illegal, but it's not.
