Converting My SKS Yugo

I decided to convert my SKS Yugo from a standard surplus rifle to a modern day Tactical style Weapon. Here's a pic of the before look




The new stock hasn't arrived yet but here's a stock Photo of what it will look like without scope.



It will be fun to take it up to my friends hunting camp for target practice
They love shooting so this will add some flavor to the shooting practices.

Hey my old man has the same thing without the scope and bipod. It's an older rifle but still looks pretty neat. I'll try getting some pics of it. He also has a 223 or m-16 type looking thing that also looks cool but I don't mess around with it. THEN my pops in law has a M-1 30 cal older looking rifle with a 30 round mag and is in good condition. I don't know the exact name of it but I will get a pic of that too. I really like the new look of your SKS. Sorry for rambling.

check your regs most places ban any rifle that has a bayonet lug.It is considered an"assault rifle" .be careful

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

I won't ever use my SKS for hunting, I only use it for target shooting and practice.
The state of Vermont has no special regs regarding Assault rifles

"Vermont - No state restriction on the sale or possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons.
Assault weapons are as easy to buy as hunting rifles."

Here's the after pic... The matching clip is backordered but the stock fit like a GLOVE...
