    That's where the broken off pin tried to escape through the wall of the case.

    Not quite. The rear receiver cover was replaced by the previous owner with one that has a pic rail integrated. The pic rail is rock solid to the receiver cover, but the receiver cover is NOT solid to the rest of the frame. Someone who's done SKS builds (read: not myself, and apparently not the previous owner) will probably be able to point me to exactly what I need to do to snug the receiver cover to the frame, but I'm not confident enough to just pull it apart (and probably lose every spring in the process) and tinker with it...

    I finally had a chance to finish unpacking from my trip to the free parts of America last weekend. As has been said before, New Yorkistan has laws that prohibit owning most categories of military-style rifles - including the M4, AR15, and AK47. When I saw this on the shelf in a free state with nothing stopping me from buying it, I couldn't leave without one:



    Like legos for adults, I already bolted on a tactical flashlight and red/green dot scope.....

    How about a picture taken with lighting so we can see what it actually is?

    You'd still need a license in NJ.

    I did a fun drill last night at the indoor range. I had modified the magazines from my 4" Springfield XD 9mm to work in my 16" Marlin Camp 9 carbine (the slot I cut doesn't interfere with still using them in the XD). So I loaded 11 rounds, shot the right target 5 times with the pistol as fast as allowed (the range yells at you if you shoot more than 1 round per second) then I dropped the mag (leaving one round in the XD), stuck the same mag in the carbine and took 5 shots just as fast at the target on the left. I did a little better on my second try (bottom). It's handy having two different type of firearms that take not only the same ammo but the same mags as well. These were 124 gr JHP reloads that run about 100 fps faster out of the carbine than they do from the pistol (much dirtier from the blowback-operated carbine as well):



    As Clint Smith from ThunderRanch said "A handgun is for shooting your way to your rifle."
