I'm thinking of changing out the original stock...

What would be better for mobility, and perhaps even hunting.

Monte Carlo stock or Dragunov Stock

I personally love the look of the Drag, but any suggestions on comfort level and versatility on the field?

thanks

Check legality on the dragunov stock on an SKS.
It might qualify as a "thumbhole" stock.
I'm no expert and this is not legal advice.
Take it for what it's worth.

An SKS has a fixed magazine in its original configuration. So, what would the question of whether it is a thumbhole stock have to do with ANYTHING? (it is actually a pistol grip stock).

You will have 922(r) concerns with changing to a dragunov stock on your SKS. Google 922(r) compliance.

I would love to, gives great authenticity. I just don't want to give it a beating if I was to go hunting in rugged terrain.

Sounds good, I'll look into that. Thanks

i have two yugos and i am going to keep one original, and was thinking of changing the other one to a tapco stock,( my son really likes it) and he wanted to put a longer tapco mag on it but that is only 10rds, would those be a problem kind of new to the sks rules

I'd say keep it original... it works best that way. It an already compact carbine with the original stock. Plus that way you don't have to worry about 922r requirements.

But if you really feel the need to change out to a Dragunov type stock.... Go with the Choate Dragunov Stock not the cheap ATI one. The ATI one doesn't look as good as the Choate. And the Choate stock is just made alot better and has a nice solid feel. I love mine.

But ever since I refinished the wood on my WASR-10 and my AES-10B I've been considering changing my Norinco back to it's wood stock. There's just something nice about the look and feel of wood

Here's a link to the site I bought my Choate Dragunov stock from. At the time they had the lowest price I could find online...

I recommend the Butler Creek sport style stock. It's solid, durable and feels "right."

And (insert shameless plug) you should buy it here: :43:

Basically, there's no problem to replace with whatever stock, since the YUGO SKS is equipped with fixed magazine.

IMHO, I would not touch that. The SKS is cheap. Probably you will spend much more money on stock/accessories than on SKS itself.
