At the very least. When you're not expecting it, SKS on full auto is quite a hand full. Somebody could have easily gotten hurt, or worse.
It's rumored that a 'select" fire SKS was built and issued for a short time. Is this true, and if so how is it different from a standard SKS?

Is this true, and if so how is it different from a standard SKS?http://world.guns.ru/assault/as48-e.htmIt mostly just looks like an SKS, from what I understand the guts are mostly Kalashnikov, including a rotating bolt, although how they got that to work with a BHO I don't really know, maybe something others should look into. What's not mentioned is how a shipment of 'semi-auto only' Type 63s went to Australia before they went all nutty and the way they were 'demilled' was the fire selector was given an internal weld tack so it couldn't move. Chinese are nothing if not practical.
Ok, dumb question but would a SKS, or any other rifle not made for FA, not hold up once converted? Like on the AR the bolt carrier is heavier and thicker on a FA than a semi. Not saying the SKS is not a durable rifle but normally a conversion does tend to weaken the FCG and/or can only fire FA.
The barreled receiver and major components may be able to survive the extra stresses, but the trigger group would be subjected to abnormal forces that could cause part failure.Yes, the change would mean that you "can only fire FA."
I think most tilting bolt guns with FA capabilities have cyclic reducing mechanisms built in to avoid mechanical failure, even then FA versions of the M14 or FAL from what I understand just do not last like the SA versions. It's not even wear per se, but just a massive failure to dissipate heat properly.
I have the same manual Muray is referring to and it's a "key" type unit that you install or remove... Still baffles me why some people want a full-auto sks

Still baffles me why some people want a full-auto sks I still don't understand why they ever put the microchip keys in GMC trucks. Costs $135 to get a replacement!
