    I have always lucked out on my SKS's I have never needed to bake or strip them I blue the metal and usually switch to a Fiberstock usually a Monte Carlo or Dragunov stock. I have never kept one as a stock piece or any gun for that fact.
  2. On the one I bought recently (also from J&G) I finally got totally disgusted with that !@#$% grenade sight and removed it. I left the screw-on barrel launcher at the end of the barrel because I may drill some holes in it to use it as a compensator. Getting rid of the grenade sight is not terribly difficult, actually, though it involves destroying the sight itself. Here's a link on how to do it.

    When you finish up, nothing is left of the sight but that ugly hinge below the rifle sight that holds the bayonet. I got rid of that (and the bayonet) using a Dremel Tool and mill bastard files. The barrel looks smooth and clean now and the rifle is much lighter.

    I left the Bayonet lug on my newest one. I am using the ATI bayonet lug mount bi-pod
