Re: remove op rod from sks for ? manual bolt action?
I wouldnt recommend it. Removing the op rod would remove the spring tension that rebounds the gas piston and cause severe battering. If you need a bolt action rifle that bad just buy one..
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
