What type of SKS do you have, and does it have any other mods?

I just fixed a Norinco model in the shop, the receiver had really bad rust pitting. Had to make sure it was safe to fire. And had to clean the gas systems. It shot well, had to use an aftermarket detachable SKS mag that wasn't fitted because the customer didn't bring his, but it worked alright. Not a fan of the grips on them though, something about them feels awkward.

Is Badass: The Book the one by Ben who manages "Badass of the Week"? If so, I can't wait for Amazon to get it here.

Sweet. Read his site religiously every Friday afternoon. And he's a pretty pleasent chap to e-mail with to boot.

Always welcoming of recommendations I've seen him. (Burt Gummer and Leslie Coffelt to name two)

It is a 1953 Soviet SKS, it is all original except for the handguard over the gas tube which was replaced with a tapco handguard which has a rail on it.

it is like this one.

Sounds like a good investment. Much like the M1 Carbine, the top piece of the handguard has a habit of getting loose and sliding around. Getting a new Tapco rail top cover sounds pretty sweet. Personally I'd find a nice synthetic stock for it to match the gun and improve the ergonomics. Just not the Dragunov stock. Positions the gun incorrectly, totally throws off the sights. Might not be a problem with a red-dot though.

I loved that book, let my Global teacher borrow it to read. She was somewhat aghast to some of it's content, but actually enjoyed it. She was just young enough to not be a total prude.
