    I recently bought a Norinco SKS, and I was wondering if its possible to modify it to accept AK magazines? I know they sell 30 round detachable SKS replacement mags, which are much harder to deal with than an AK mag.

    Also, does a recoil buffer really make a big difference in decreasing rifle wear?

    Not really, but close. Check out That's about the best way I can think of.

    The recoil buffer is a good idea if you're going to burn a LOT of ammo.
