Intended as something of a middle finger to Canadian gun laws, a company called Pearce Armoury has come out with an upgrade kit for the SKS.

Bit of background: As of 2020, the AR-15 is banned from civilian ownership in Canada, along with many other "scary" semiauto rifles. But the SKS is not restricted. And there are a ton of SKSs in Canada, with them having continued to import large numbers of Norinco SKSs in the decades after they were barred from US import in the 1990s.

So what do some clever Canuck gunsmiths who want to find and exploit loopholes do? They produce a kit to turn your SKS into an AR15. (Kinda.)

It takes your existing SKS barreled receiver, and adds in a replacement chassis and fire control group.

Your SKS now uses AR15 stocks, grips, sights/optics, and even 7.62x39 AR15 magazines. And now you have a semiauto quasi-AR15 that legally is still an SKS and therefore kosher in the Mounties' eyes.

Hideous? Yep.

Ingenious? Yep.

And they're working on producing an updated version made with new production SKS receivers, chambered in additional calibers like .300 Blackout, .458 Socom, 5.56 Nato, .50 Beowolf, 5.45x39, and 6.5 Grendel.

The way they hang that MBUS rear makes it even more hideous. Roll Eyes

that's cool. Looks like something Der Chermans would have come up with in the late 30's.

While I applaud the loophole exploiting ingenuity, it needs a barrel-mointed front sight, or just take them off and mount a dot. I've got more sight radius on some handguns.

Its the sights that make it look odd. That and its long barrel.

The newer version is (very slightly) better-looking...
