I recently aquired a Chinese SKS with a cracked stock for next to nothing. I've seen ads for plastic and composite stocks for under $100. Is there any out there you guys can recommend? Just as importantly, any I should stay away from?

I've acquired several x-military rifles with cracked/broken stocks. Using Brownells Acra-Glas bedding material as a glue I was able to repair those damaged stocks. Since sold them to new owners who have reported no troubles to date.

The ATI brand of stocks I've used on Mosin-Nagant M44 rifles with good results. Believe TAPCO also makes stocks for this firearm. Other products from them have been of good quality and were what worked the best in each application although other brands may have worked.

I would abrade the area around the crack and use a decent grade of Epoxy or the Brownells glass beding stuff.

With a lot of the surplus weapons, if you take a $100 rifle and add a new $100 stock, you don't get a $200 rifle.

I have an sks with a small hairline crack at the top on the left side and i just glued it and restained it and applied tung oil.

If you look for an orginal sks wood stock to replace it make sure its for your rifle. They come in pinned and screwed in barrel, there both different.

I tricked out my very first sks with all the bells and whistles many years ago when the trick out stuff became available for the first time. After i finished it i swapped it all back to the orginal wood.
