Blah.. I think I read about it somewhere but isn't there a LEGAL kit to make your sks do three round bursts?

Thanks

The three round legal "BURST FIRE" item is a one of the time honored "STOOGE-N-ATOR" designs...



You just need three  hyperactive morons with trigger fingures still in tact.

Thanks for your help.  Like I say, I will just wait till basic training to get to shoot a three round burst.

Thanks again

You won't get to shoot 3 round burst in the army basic either, trust me.

Oh I should have specified.  Air Force.  But then again, if Army doesn't get to do it, I am sure the AF won't :)

Thanks

AF basic training is about 4 hours with an M16A1, Did it in 1991

Army basic is 8 weeks with an M16A2, Remember that every time you pull the trigger, You'll have to clean it.  Did it in 1993.

Good luck, and dont be cocky.

You'll be ok if you just think of yourself as an idiot, and you do not know more than your drill.

Thanks for the recommendations :) I will remember it. I am studying all my Air Force stuff now.

My recruiter said they do a little longer now with the M16 just because of current events. And in a few months they are going to have a full week dedicated to M16 training.

How hard was the M16 tear apart?
Thanks again

in basic you may get to shoot about 20 -40 rds in burst mode.  not all it's cracked up to be though.  the m-4 an m-16 are much more accurate in semi.  if you're in a close quaters battle, and needing to lay down some fire, you can waste ammo quick with burst.  I never used burst once in Iraq.  that's why you have saw's and 240B's

You will be able to rip it apart and reassemble blind folded in seconds. Get to the range with it every chance you can get, so what if you gotta clean to the hell out of it every time, worth it.
What's in your profile?

The M16, just like the AR15, is a PIECE OF CAKE to field strip.  For all it's faults and negative reputation, this is the one area where I have to give Eugene Stoner credit.  It is a true marvel of engineering when it comes to breaking it down.

Where will you be doing your basic training?  San Antonio?

does reliability suffer a lot in full auto/burst modes?  seems like things could get awfully hot for such a precise firearm.
