ATI SKS Monte Carlo Stock

A Big Hello to all you Bloggers out there

I did promise you that this month is going to be “Stock” month, so this week we are going to discuss another very famous rifle and what you can do to Jazz it up. What we are talking about here is the Famous, the Iconic, the Reliable, the Prolific, the Russian SKS-45 Carbine. The SKS stands for “Samozaryadnyj Karabin Sistemi Simonova, 1945″  which means – “Self-Loading Carbine, Simonov’s System -1945″ and was designed by the (2nd) great Russian inventor – Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. The Russians managed to get them into service at the end of the 2nd World War against the Germans on the Eastern Front. It became the front line rifle for the Russians who then replaced it with the ubiquitous AK-47 in the early 1950′s. Because Russia and her satellite countries had produced around 15 million SKS rifles, there were a Sh*t Load of warehouses, “Chock Full” of surplus guns when they were pulled out of service. So what do you do when you have a situation like this……………..You sell them off cheap to the World Wide Market…………………… (You just got to Love the Russians for that)

I cant think of any country in the world that doesn’t have some SKS’s in it and New Zealand is certainly no exception. Some Gun Shops are selling them in Bulk lots of 10 & 20 at a time………………..How good is That!!!!! I must say that I’ve owned my fair share of them over the years and they are a Great Little Carbine to own and shoot, and these days,  you can buy so many “After-Market, Gucchi-Bling” add on bits for them that the humble SKS can be turned into a Super Sniper, Scout Carbine, a Tactical (Ass-Kicking) Assault Rifle or a Sharp Looking Hunting Rifle. So without further ado, let’s check out the Sharp Looking Hunting Rifle look and talk about that in this Blog.

The Good folks at ATI have come up with a winner of a Monte-Carlo Stock for the SKS. This will turn your Humble, Mil-Surp, Wooden Stocked SKS into a damm fine looking, comfortable,- (This is the word I like!!!) robust, hunting rifle. Not only can you get this stock in the standard Tactical Black colour, now you can have it in the new “Dark Earth Brown” colour which I think really suits the SKS and gives it that Serious Hunting Rifle look. Just the thing for that Goat or Wallaby hunt, where more often than not, you need quick follow-up shots………….(or if you are planning a trip through Zombie Land, you will definitely need some quick follow-up shots!!!)

Here’s some of the features that I like about this Stock -

1) The butt has a Scorpion Recoil Buttpad to soak up the felt recoil, which will keep you on target for those follow-up shots.

2) The Stock has a raised Monte-Carlo Cheekpiece that has a “Soft-Touch” Cheek Pad for improved comfort when shooting.

3) It comes with a proper Checkered Pistol Grip that is much more comfortable to hold than the Non-Existent, Mil-Surp, Original one.

4) It has a proper Checkered Forend for a Non-Slip Fore-Grip and a Ventilated Top Handguard for maximum heat dissipation.

5) The stock is made from DuPont Extreme Temperature Glass reinforced Polymer and is pretty much indestructible.

6) Will fit all the Russian SKS and Chinese SKS’s (type 63) including the SKK models (SKS-M) without any major fitting problems.

Check them out on our website, Comrades and Good Hunting.
