A left handed sks
« on: March 03, 2008, 04:38:09 PM »
What would a left handed sks be worth is they were out there? What if there was a left handed bullpup sks or a right handed bullpup sks?   I'm in the process of making both. Just would like some feedback.

First off, welcome to the boards!

What do you mean 'left handed'...like having the safety switched over to the other side? Other than that, what else would need to be changed?

I guess the worth would be up to the buyer and what it was worth to him. Maybe an extra $25? As for the Bullpup's...I didn't know there was an active 'market' for these to begin with.

Pic's of whatever you are doing would be appreciated!

yeah the left handed one would be easy compared to the bullpup stcok. I'm right handed but my brother is a south paw. He asked me to look at it and see if it could be done.
The bullpup has been done before but is way over priced for the avg joe to by one one. plus it does not look like something i would like to buy for that much money.

yeah if i do this project it will include the safety and bolt and everything else.  To the point the empties come out on the left side of the chamber. I will post pics as i start the project all the way through the end.

As the bullpup i don't see a market for this stock. Thought it would be nice to have out there for an option.

Am I to believe that, not only is Neil Hudson alive, but he is STILL working on his Bullpup? And not only that, but he has a brother who wants one too? You can't make this stuff up folks...eagerly awaiting the results.

A left handed SKS wouldn't be worth the time.The receiver would have to be milled with the ejector on the other side,the bolt and carrier remachined.Not at all economical,especially when you consider the cost of retooling.


Why,would you want a bullpup SKS?  :scratch:   It's already a carbine.

I am lefthanded and have no problem shooting my SKS.  I have never been hit by a spent shell.  I don't see the point of converting it to a lefty.  I have seen an ambidextrous safety on the market before.  The safety lever is on both sides of the trigger guard.

here is a link that has an ambidextrous safety for $13.  http://www.sksman.com/part/parts2.php

Here is a link and a few pics of the SKS bullpup.  pretty spendy!

No kidding considering buying even a shooters grade Yugo sks and that kit could almost get you 2 AK bullpups.
