SKU: INTERNAL: 6446399 || SKU: SKSRS-RIFLE Categories: ,


The Soviet SKS Semi-Auto 7.62×39 Rifle has a conventional carbine layout, with a wooden stock and no pistol grip. The SKS is a gas-operated weapon that has a spring-loaded operating rod and a gas piston rod that work the action via gas pressure pushing against them. Also, it has a “tilting bolt” action locking system.

The SKS’s five-round box magazine is fed from a stripper clip and rounds stored in the magazine can be removed by depressing a magazine catch located forward of the trigger guard (thus opening the “floor” of the magazine and allowing the rounds to fall out). All military SKSs have a bayonet attached to the underside of the barrel, which is extended and retracted via a spring-loaded hinge.
