Glad to have the original magazine installed and functioning very well. Still love my SKS.
Luck of the draw I guess, my duckbill functions perfectly with both metal and plastic 30 rd mags. Poor mans chineeeeee AK which works just as well.

I have 3 Norinco SKSs converted to take detachable "duckbill" mags (prior to 10/1/2013). Have had no FTF with Tapco 20 rd mags or Archangle 20 or 30 rd mags. Even the two Korean 75 rd drums work well. Had to dremel the Tapco mags to be able to reload them with stripper clips though.

I also have an old USA brand steel mag which has never fed reliably.

Should the nuts get their way duckbills and even stock SKS's will be on the chop block. I'm seriously thinking of using it for trade bait.... they WERE worth 4 bills a couple years ago, now... who knows?

The duckbill "conversion" (aka removing the fixed mag) is already illegal here in MD. Had to have been done before the 2013 MD assault weapons ban to be legal to possess. The duckbill mags are legal to own here, though, as long as you buy them somewhere else.

So right after the balloon goes up a lot of MD SKS's that weren't converted to take duckbills before the ban might be.

75 rd drum magazines as of now are still legal to own and use in MD. Just can't sell them here
The 20 rd Chinese fixed SKS magazines have always been hit or miss for feed issues and often need the feed lips "tweeked" to feed properly.

The Archangel 35rd mags run 100% and I have been using them for a few years + now.
