How to Install Tapco Stock on SKS


Tapco produces highly durable tactical stocks that replace the original wooden stock of the SKS rifle. Tapco stocks are ergonomically correct and adjustable to six stock positions. The Tapco hand guard is equipped with a Weaver-style scope mount, allowing you to quickly attach accessories to your SKS rifle. Tapco stocks are American-made and compatible with all models of SKS rifles.

Things You'll Need

  • SKS rifle
  • Tapco SKS stock
  • 3/8-inch socket wrench
  • Verify that the weapon is unloaded.

  • Remove the trigger group by engaging the safety and pressing the small button behind the trigger.

  • Simultaneously pull the bolt and magazine back; the magazine will pivot forward.

  • Remove the rifle's receiver and barrel.

  • Turn the small lever, located on the right side of the rear sight, to the lower detent. The gas tube assembly will then separate from the receiver.

  • Utilize the original hand-guard bracket and replace the old SKS hand-guard with the Tapco hand-guard.

  • Reinstall the gas tube assembly into the receiver and return the small lever to its original position.

  • Install the receiver and barrel (front first) into the Tapco stock. It should fit snugly.

  • Place your Tapco trigger guard into the new stock. Install the trigger guard front first; press down until the latch assembly engages.

  • Secure the pistol grip by placing the 2 1/4-inch hex-head screw into the hole at the rear of the grip and tightening with the socket wrench.

  • Permanently attach the stock tube onto the back of the stock by sliding it on and pushing it forward so that it’s flush with the stock. Secure it using the provided screws and nuts.
