  • DESCRIPTION
  • REVIEWS
High-capacity magazine. Fits standard SKS rifle. 1-piece metal magazine w/extended front lip 30 rounds of 7.62x39. Easy installation (directions below). Does not make gun capable of using AK magazines. No adapter required. Will not hold open bolt when last round is fired. Installation instructions: Remove the trigger group and existing fixed magazine, replace trigger group and fit in detachable magazine.

SKS Magazine Installation Instructions

1. MAKE SURE SKS IS UNLOADED!
2. Lock bolt open and switch the safety on.
3. Take out trigger assembly. To do so turn SKS upside down and look behind the trigger guard for a detent. With a Phillips head screwdriver insert the tip into that detent and push forward. This will release the trigger guard causing it to come out of the SKS.
4. Remove Factory 10rd. Magazine Assembly. The magazine will remove after the trigger assembly is out of the way. The magazine should just pull out easily provided the bolt is still locked back.
5. Remove the Butt Stock from Barreled Assembly. The butt stock will come out if you grab the barrel and gas tube in front of the wood stock and lift. While the SKS is upside down, with the right hand slap the Butt Stock where your cheek rest when shooting and the Barreled Assembly will separate from the Butt Stock.
6. Disassembling the SKS allows you to see how the NEW MAGAZINE mounts to your SKS.
Under the rear sight on the bottom side of your SKS is a block with a notch where the extension of the NEW MAGAZINE inserts. Once the extension is in the notch you will be able to rock the magazine into the slot in the rear of the magazine well.
7. Now put your SKS back together with your NEW MAGAZINE in place. Go shooting and function tests your SKS  with all of that ammo you bought from CHEAPER THAN DIRT.

"I purchesed the 30 round mag and to my disapointment it didn't perform well at all. The mag had to be slamed into my Yugo which let the reciver fling forward be acident. (Note: The reciver had to be open in order for the mag to go in at all.) I had problems where the recoil disloged the next round to cause jamming of the next round to loaded. On the second loading of the mag 12 ROUNDS didn't want to come up any farther when I was fireing at the rang. This was because of spring failer on the mag. The mag feels like someone in a sweetshop was stamping it out.If you buy this mag you could run into some of the probles like I did or they could work like theres no tomarrow. I could have replaced the spring with a AK Mag spring kit but Its brand new. One more bit of info on the mag is that where the round are being loaded onto (the piece betwen the spring and the guide) is PLASTIC."

"At first i was stoked-i was used to jammin strippers into my rifle on demand-the 30 rounder worked well, at first-started getting probs after about 100 rds (the 40 rd, forget about it, traded that for this one) & of course can't snap in mag w/ out HOLDING open chamber-very akward-i ddnt bother returning this one, i used it for a while & now i'm done w/ my sks altogether"

"5/5 Bullets for reliability, capacity, and looks after minor tweaks.This is not the piece of crap you might think from reading the disorganized, and down right dumb reviews posted by people who refused to try proven tactics to solve magazine problems...Easily fixable, just refer back to my review on the 20 rounder, as it also applies to this 30 round mag."

"i bought a 30rd and a 40rd and wish i had never seen either one they both jammend just bout every shot the shell would fall down and cause it to jam or the shell wouldnt come up far enough to go into the chamber it would get slammed into the bottom of the chamber i wish i would have never looked at thesse i have a 40rd clip that came with the gun and i can shoot that all day and not have one problwem with it"

"i read chance w 's review and he does make good points but i bought a 30 rd clip for my sks from here and from another company and this one is terrible. The other one is straight the spring is tuf and the bullets stand at and angel so they go into the chamber and dont jam, the body of the clip is thicker and actually feels like your holding metal not like this one here where it feels like i am holding a dang pop can in my hand. i had to bend the clip straight and do some modifications on the guts to make it even ok to use. why buy something that you have to work on before you even use it. my advise is look around."

"Well when I first got it I thought that I had just wasted money but then after refitting my yugo to its original wood stock with the 30 rnd mag It worked fine after a lil tweaking of course now its got that cool look and shoots great"

"It sounds to me, that you're using the Yugoslavian SKS...I have the Chinese version and haven't had ANY problems with mounting the magazine OR jamming/misfiring with the new 30 rd mag. I've been told by several gun dealers that the Yugo SKS is a P.O.S., and that only the Russian, Chinese, or Romanian SKS's work well with the conversion. This is just my opinion, but maybe if you tried a different SKS version, you might not have the problems that you're having."

"I have a Chinese SKS, I just spent an hour messing with this clip, bending the lips and filing the front, and the stock body. now that it fits, it still won't load properly. I wouldn't recommend it, this is too much work. The box mag is fine, and reliable, too. Wish i'de spent this money on ammo."

"I have to apologize to anyone who reads these \"reviews\" - I screwed up! Several people wrote in to say that their 30 rd mags didn't go in; or, if they did fit, they didn't work like they're supposed to. I opened my big mouth, and said that someone's experience must have been with a Yugoslavian SKS. I would like to formally apologize to all - I bought a 30-rd mag, and tried for 3 days to get the damned thing to fit, with absolutely NO luck. The other mag that I fitted to my SKS wasn't a 30-rd, it was a 20-rd, and evidently it WAS made for my SKS.I'm not gonna ask for a refund, due to my really tweaking the damned mag, to the point of almost destroying it. I WON'T BUY ANOTHER MAGAZINE FROM C.T.D.!!!!! Their other stuff is ok, but NOT their non-OEM stuff!!!Jim GuthrieRedmond, OR"

"I bought a 20 rnd Polymer clip and one 30 rnd steel clip to test out with my new Tapco stock for my Chinese SKS. The 20 rnd polymer loads and fires with ease, and fits the Tapco like a charm. The 30 rnd steel clip has an extended loading guard on the top, but it makes loading harder, and it gave the rifle fits with chambering each round. I tested both clips recently, and fired over 200 rounds with the Sks. After 2 tries of ammo through the 30 rnd steel clip, I gave up. Tough to load, jams in the breach, and the steel isn't even of the best quality. I'd go for the 20 rnd polymers. The reviews for them are better, and there's a reason. The polymers might seem cheaper, but they are overall just better clips to use with the Sks."

"Well, I'm not sure what problems everyone else is having with the steel 30-round mag, but as far as fitment is concerned the darn things fit well in my Yugo SKS. I haven't had the opportunity to test for feed issues yet, and I may change my review depending on the outcome of some \"range time\", but so far so good. They insert/remove easily with a little practice, and seem to be quality magazines. As a former US Army weapons expert(18B30), I can assure you that this magazine is about as good as it gets as far as ease of use. The Yugo SKS doesn't have a deep magazine well like the M16/AR 15 or similar framed semi-autos. These weapons were designed in the late 1950's, thus making them obsolete by today's weapon standards. In short, you get what you pay for. If you want a high-tech weapons system, save your money and buy something that isn't 50 years old. Just my 2 cents.Dave"

"The hi-cap still SKS mags do not fit to the rifles in 90% of cases. Regardless of model and make. Just spend the money to get some ammo \uFFFD it\uFFFDs getting more and more expensive. The word is that the polymer mags are good. Well, I\uFFFDve decided not to risk, but you may try. To Dave (aka \uFFFDthe former US Army weapons expert\uFFFD): SKS was designed in 1944-45, field-tested in 1945 (Soviet-German front) and officially adopted by the Soviet Army in 1949\uFFFD"

"OKay, I just got my order from Cheaper than Dirt today... I checked out a few things before I checked out the magazine... Went into my Chinese SKS just fine... Then I tried to close the action... There's no possible way in hell this SKS is going to close with the magazine in the current configuration it is in. Have no clue what I just got myself into. I compared it to the magazine that came with the SKS, the metal is cheaper (can tell by the look and texture) it's alot lighter and it just doesn't feel right. All they have to do is get the specifics of the mag right, I have no idea if it jams when firing or not, I just got it. Tried slamming the action shut and the magazine actually CAVED IN a little bit. Crazy stuff, if I could do it over again, I would have saved my money and looked elsewhere for a mag that was worth a darn."

"I bought two of these mags a while ago. While they fit in my pair of yugos they would not feed. I tried on several occasions to adjust them and finally got so pissed at messing with them that I put my factory mag back in. These make wonderful targets . enough said"

"You would be better off buying a piece of tin and try to fold and shape, and weld it, than buying this junk. I am a Viet Nam vet and have handled and used many sks's and ak's, I do not think the even the Viet Cong would keep this piece of junk. Money should be refunded to every one who has one of these laying around."

"I know that the best option for the SKS is the factory fixed 10 round mag. But I just had to try the 30 rounder listed here. Not only are there feed problems but I had to grind off so much of the mag just so it would fit in my SKS. 1st I had to file the duckbill as one side was several mm's higher than the other causing it to seat crooked. 2nd I had to remove the paint on the backside of the mag as it was about 1/2 inch away from attaching completely to the mag catch. Now onto the feeding issue. I had to bend tweak and grind the feed lips to ramp the cartridges properly into the rifle. Finally I applied some silicone spray onto the feedlips and spring. Now it works good.......As a target. After the mods it did fire ok but I still had issues where the last few rounds weren't feeding properly. If you have to have a hi-cap go with tapco. I use this mag as a target holder which it does a great job holding up my Osama target!!!"

"If you like to tinker this mag will probably work fine for you (but be ready to tinker a lot). The ears at the top of the mag need adjustment and possible filing. I still haven't had enough time to fix mine. A friendly piece of advice if you do buy one try not to put any more than 25 rounds in at a time. If you over fill it, the mag will spread and then you will have feed issues."

"I BOUGHT THIS CLIP (30)RD FOR MY YUGO SKS, AND IS A PIECE OF CRAP DONT WASTE UR MONEY. FIRST OFF ITS ALL WRONG NEEDS TWEEKING, SECOND AFTER YOU INTALL IT AND GET IT TO FIT UR TRIGGER WONT FIRE, SO AFTER FURTHER MODIFICATIONS NOW FIRES BUT JAMS.

"I just range tested one of these the other day. Thank God I wasn't paying by the hour. It did eventually work, but I spent more time adjusting it than shooting. And when I finally did get it working, the metal tab that keeps the mag clipped in just popped off. Obviously a poor tack weld. All in all, the best I can say about it is that if you're really handy with tools, this mag will keep you busy for a while."

"Well, it fit perfectly in my stock furniture. I changed over to the TAPCO synthetic and it didn't want to fit. All I did was take a pair of needle nose and a hammer then curled the front of the duckbill in just about an eighth an inch. Now she fits pretty good, took it out today and shot it! Shoots great! Don't know what all the fuss it about? Though I have 10 of the 20 round Tapco Mags, nothing beat that fit!"

"I don't know if it is my Chinese SKS or what, but everyone seems to have trouble and problems with these 30 rounders except me. Everything I have pruchased from CTD for my SKS has worked just fine with very little or no machining whatsoever including the mags. Plan on purchasing 2 or 3 more."

"I got two of these with my Norinco and picked up a third one eventually. I seem to have feed problems and jams with one of them about every 15 rounds or so. But the other ones which work are great, can bump fire all 30 rounds without a problem time and time again. Wish I could figure out why the one which has feed problems has them, nothing I seem to do fixes it."

"Before purchasing this magazine I was very skeptical. I read all the reviews that said this mag sucks and didn't work, but when I got home I installed it in my Norinco SKS, and to my surprise with some sanding it fit nice and snug. I loaded up 30 rounds and had some issues getting a round in the chamber, but it functions with 25 rounds flawlessly. Not sure why but since that is the only issue I have had with it I am giving it 4 bullets. Thanks!"

"i bought 1 of these mags just to see if they worked, the mag i recieved does not engage the bolt catch when the mag becomes empty, also you can't insert or remove mags wile the bolt is closed, the bolt must be locked open. so if you empty a mag and remove it to place a full one in, the bolt slams shut and you must manualy hold the bolt open to put in the new mag, which is very ackward. also the mag will not hold more than 21 rds, after 21 rds the mag will no longer seat bullets properly and will cause lots of jams and malfunctions. against my advice my brother also bought 4 of these mags for his own sks. every mag was different, each one had a different set of problems and they were welded togeather at differing angles for each mag. some of the mags would not fit in the weapon, some would not seat or feed rds, some had feed lips that were longer or shorter and bent at bad and differing angles. however none would lock the bolt open and none would hold more than 21 or 22 rds."

"I bought one of these and used it yesterday. I can load 2- 10 round stripper clips into it with ease. Getting the third one is a chore. It's easier loading the magazine one by one after 20. My buddy bought one of these and the first one wouldn't even fit his SKS. After comparing it to mine we could see it was welded up all twisted. He sent it back. The exchange fit his gun but wouldn't chamber the round. The bullet was too low. So, after some manual bending the mag, we got it to chamber. Then, during the first use, the thing just came apart. The welds broke. I'm happy (for the most part) with mine. But, I won't order another one."

"First off let me start by saying this is the worst clip i ever seen. It wouldn't hold more than 22 rounds. It wouldn't chamber the rounds. Every single time I fire it jammed, and when I fired the last shot, it didn't lock the bolt back. Not to mention, I have to cock the bolt back to place the clip in. I seen other guys say they shaved sum parts, and it worked. I did that and it fit and chambered the rounds, but it still jammed. Do not buy!"

"I've had this mag for a while now and like all SKS mags I've had there is always feeding issues, unlike my AK-47 which is perfect (of course). The \"bluing\" is really some sort of paint which had peeled off in a spot about half way down the curve before it was delivered to me as that's how I got it. The exposed steel below has since rusted, but there have been no further blemishes in the paint. As far as high cap mags go it's a 3/5, as far as SKS mags go it's a 3.8/5 imo."
