The SKS-M isn't a Paratrooper.

This one had a shorter barrel than most Ms that I have seen.

I got an offer I couldn't refuse and it's got another home now.

Around here these run between 500-700 bucks.

An M barrel is pretty close to 16" already. There will be a slight gap between the fsb and gas block due to the shorter gas tube.
And a para is a shortened SKS with a normal fsb and normal length gas system, so the fsb and gas block are touching.
Even an SKSS isn't a paratrooper.

Id like one that works with ak mags and just can't get used to the look of the thumb hole stock also. Sks-M looks way better and the shorter barrel is nice.

Eventually would like a Chinese arsenal type-56 with a spike bayo. Are the Type 56 in vg condition 300 or more these days? Many seem to be pretty rough looking.

The latest Chinese C&Rs are really rough for the most part. In my neck of the woods nice /26\ models run between 375-450 in gun/pawn shops. Anything 325 or less for a non-bubba'd gun I consider to be a good price.

I picked up a KFS /016\ Security Force marked SKS - complete - bayo, sling, cleaning kit, cleaning rod, all matching excellent condition. It was marked 399 but I got it for about 350 OTD. I was happy to get it for that.

You are correct.

The SKS M Models (thumbhole or Monte Carlo stocks) has 16’ barrels.
The SKS D Models has the 20’ standard sks length barrels, usually with bayos too.

The Sporter's - uh - sporter stock takes a little getting used to, but it grows on you.

I think some contour-sanding on the hand grip would help. Someone could get creative with some rubber parts and make something really cool.

I had a SKS Sporter and used Tanker mags - perfect combo. One thing with the AK mag SK's is getting the mag insertion down to "muscle memory".

They have a sweet spot and once you learn it, they load pretty easily. Otherwise they will drive you nuts.

I have a sporter in a tapco t6 with tech sights that I use tanker mags in for a truck gun basically!

If they are stamped "SKS M" they are replacement stocks. The only SKS that is an M is one that has SKS M stamped on the side, and they came in Monte Carlo stocks.
Those are likely Sporters or NRs.

I'd say the top two are Sporters and the bottom one is an NR or a 93.
