Okay, I got a really good deal on a SKS type M with a sporter Tapco folding stock. With a 40 round mag. Well upon cleaning it and then shooting it. I find out the mag is catching the last round on the rim. Therefor jamming it. Nothing is wrong with the rifle. It cycles like a dream. Just that one last round. Any tips on fixing the mag? Or should I just buy a new mag? Thanks in advance. Shaun

The -M model takes the same magazines as standard AK's, correct? If so, then magazines should run between $10 and $20 apiece depending on condition and vendor.

Ahhh, standard SKS with "duckbill" magazine. Definitely take the 'biker's advice and dump the 40-. There seem to be Very few extended duckbill magazines that work reliably. The closer you stay to standard, the better.

With a composite stock you can try Tapco 20 round mags. IMO they are the best aftermarket mags for an SKS. I've got 8 of them and they work great. The 30 rounders work but not nearly as well as the Tapco 20's do. JMHO
