    There are plenty of trashed SKS's out there so someone wanting to build one should be easy to get the parts. But that question was asked in the beginning of the thread ?why do you want a .357 semi Auto. And I think it is because you can't buy one....

    I have both the NOE 323365 GC and the .311365 with one plain base and the other cavity GC. Both boolits shoot very well. But some LE and MN rifles do prefer the 316299 sized to fit the bore or should i say + .001 or better

    The round has to headspace on the Rim, or there would be no way to fire .38 specials in it as an option. And why if you have a Rim, would it be more accurate or better to headspace on the case mouth. Then Case Length becomes a big factor. The...

    Did some measurements tonight. Putting in a Barrel Liner is out. For one, the 7.62x39 case is wider than the ,357 case, you would have to line the chamber, and the Muzzle end of the barrel is .550. The liner OD is .440 ( I have one for doing a...

    Your Concept Art looks interesting. I think the magazine looks about 1/2" too far forward, but gives the impression of what it could look like.

    An SKS in .357 Mag that takes DE magazines, the weirdest of the pistol caliber carbines, but the most interesting! Concept art - forgive my horrible editing.

    To tell you the truth, I have never removed a barrel from an SKS or AK. So the pressed in set up will be a new adventure for me. And Thanks for the tip on the pressure curve. Most of my work has been on bolt actions or single shots. But I have...

    That was my thinking also. So if your receiver has a threaded barrel then all you have to do is thread the new Barrel shank to match the receiver. But I have a Cheap Chinese POC that has a pressed in barrel. So , either stay with a pressed in...

    Years ago I had a 30 Carbine in the .256 Winchester , I think they called it a Ferret. That round was made from a necked down .357 magnum case. I remember it fed the rimmed round out of the Magazine just fine. But a 30 Carbine I don't think would...

    I think the thing people would like about this conversion would be having a common Factory cartridge. The SKS action is not that all refined to justify going to a Custom Round or being able to only shoot a Downloaded version of a Good Round But a...

    @ samari46 There are probably a dozen cartridges that would be better or easier to convert this rifle too. But the challange was thrown out about making it into a .357 Mag . Make it a Common Caliber, and it would be great if it could fire the .38...

    Now answer the Question, Why do others think this is a desireable rifle. The SKS is a great rifle. Handy, cheap to shoot, fairly accurate and plenty of power. Why Change it ?

    First Question was about getting the Rimmed rounds to feed out of the magazine. Well a Takorov does it, so does a Desert Eagle, the Mosin Nagant, the Smith and Wesson Model 52 and the SMLE. That is just a issue that has to be dealt with, but not...

    Guys, when he says he's gonna do something, no matter how odd it sounds, he usually pulls it off. I'm also interested in seeing this, but I don't doubt the guy - he's pulled off some wild stuff in the past.
