    Thanks, Tom. I bought the stock from Midway USA back around 1995, when they had a good price on them. I believe the stock is made by Rhinehart Fajen of Warsaw, Mo. It was a "Drop-in" stock that required very little had fitting. I replaced the issued 10 shot Magazine with a non-detachable 5-shot one and removed the hardware. After this my SKS seemed to shoot more accurate. I've never taken it hunting but rather just shot targets with it. A very interesting rifle and FUN to shoot!!:)
     
  2. don't know what they power difference is between winch. and wolf, but wolf uses the berdan primers which are really corrosive.

    Also, I don't like the steel casings that wolf uses sometimes.

    I had one case rupture on me while trying them in my Ruger M-77 bolt action rifle! But no harm done. YEP, Wolf ammo is slightly corrosive too!!:eek:

    Berdan primed does not automatically mean corrosive:

    I usually use Silver Bear in my Cowboy Companion but I did run a few hundred rounds of some white box Russian stuff I picked up a long time ago at an area gun store. Both were Berdan primed. I know the Silver Bear isn't corrosive and I'm pretty sure the other stuff wasn't.

    Hmm, I've bought and shot a lot of Wolf pistol ammo, never noticed any corrosion issues. Stinky and dirty powder, but no corrosion. :confused:

    You might want to avoid using the ammo made in China as I am certain they are corrosive.
