1. Hey Marcus - The mag modification is fantastic and they go in and out like butter. The feeds are great on FMJ, SP and HP. I am very happy with all that you did for me. And thanks for fixing the mag latch. Don U. (Boomer34), 16Feb2010

2. Install was successful! I used the thin pin to secure the adapter and it looks like the pin already in the stock. I would recommend this to anyone who does not want to deal with the duckbill mags. Excellent product and highly recommended. Thanks Marcus! Steve C. (sks007), 27Feb2010

3. Runs pretty smooth I'd say. Ya'll better run right out and get one.
Ben Murray 27Feb2010

4. To those who would like to know what the duck-bill-less difference is. It is a quick snap, positive lock, fast change, no fumbling, closed bolt insertion, bolt hold open retaining, easy to carry extra round capacity modification that can transform your SKS into an efficient detachable high-cap magazine firearm with reliable function and massive lead slinging capabilities. A happy Mag-adapter Customer. Quote from: Martin08 on February 27, 2010.

5. Live fire went smooth as silk. Loaded two rounds in and feed went great and BHO engaged fine. Joe 15Mar2010

6. Boy is this gun fun to shoot. The mags "SNAP" into the rifle with this loud "CA-CHUNK" sound. I am one happy SKS duck-bill-less shooting fool. Thank you Marcus. Vegas Dave 01May2010

7. Success, I removed just a hair off the back of the adapter tab and no more problem. Those are some tight tolerances. I was a little short on time but I wanted to hear it make noise. Spit out 20 rounds, no sweat. I'd say it works. It makes a nice 'snap' sound when I click it home. Mike G. 01June2010

8. To anyone wondering, mag changes are just as fast, if not faster, much like loading an AK. It has that reassuring "click" and doesn't need much force to get it in place. This is a man who stands by his product. Carl 27June2010

9. At the range it proved to be more than just a good idea as it functioned flawlessly with both slow and rapid fire.The adapter is worth it's weight in gold if you desire reliable high capacity SKS fun, and with any luck the Marcus Mag adapter is here to stay. Mike A. 2July2010

10. I am a Reserve Deputy with the Garfield County Sheriff Department. With the increase in our crime, I have decided that I need to have a long gun in the patrol car when I am out in the county. I have had my SKS for a number of years and just didn't like the duckbill magazines that it took. They are too hard to carry in a pouch. Most of our deputies have AR's but I just can't afford one since I am not compensated for my work. The Sheriff doesn't care what I use and just says "When you go out to play, be sure to take all your toys with you". Thank You. Wendell G. Deputy, 18Aug2010

11.
The rifle performed flawlessly while operating on the border under some very rough conditions. I have also recommended your product to many of my fellow SKS owners who were very impressed by your product, again thank you for your assistance. Ernest 4Aug2010

Marcus: She made it home, all nice and shiny....and working great!! Hey!, thanks for all the hard work and concern. A testament to the small businessman in this country. I'll keep you warned about what's coming your way from the North..........I'm close enough to the Canadian Border to spit. Bob 20Sep2010

13. Fit is nice and snug!  The explanation of the "V" cut helped it all make sense!  Thanks again!  Excellent use of RCH by the way... I've never really heard it used outside of the music recording world.  Good to know it's such a universal measurement term!  Dennis 28Nov2010

 

14. I finally make it to the range and it ran flawlessly! William B., 7Dec2010

 

15. It was a complete drop in fit...all I did was install the adapter and modify the stock and the mags and they just click into place. Thanks again Marcus. Dmac, 8May2011

 

16. Marcus, this is an  amazing product.  I cannot wait to get a G5!!! Put me down for a G5 when they're ready! Fort Knox, 24July2011

 

17. This thing is the cats meow. Robert, 15Nov11

 

18. So simple to install and works. Jeffery, 2Feb12

 

19. Just as advertised. Michael, 4July12

 

20. I wish I had known about this system years ago. Joe, 30Oct2012

 

21. Easy install. Mags were a snap to modify. Runs perfectly. Calvin, 18Dec2012.

 

22. Christmas present from my wife. It is beautiful and works. James, 3Jan2013.

 

23. Works just like Marcus said it would. Billy, 14April2013.

 

24. Amazing. Don, 16Aug2013.

 

25. Workmanship is top drawer AND it really works. Bill, 25Oct2013.

 

26. Not one failure to feed or failure to eject, just like Marcus told me. I recommend you buy this adapter. You won't be sorry. RC, 11Nov2013.

 

27. I had an install issue. Marcus walked me through it. Runs perfectly. Excellent customer service. Thomas, 12Feb2014.

 

28. The trigger was sticking on my G5. Called Marcus, he said put a drop of RemOil in it and work the release. Worked in 5 seconds. His Customer Service is excellent.  Roland, 12Mar2014.

 

29. Bought this system and tried it. It worked perfectly. Ralph, 10April2014.

 

30. Bought one. It worked so well, I bought 3 more for my other SKS rifles. You will love how the G5 works with the Tapco mags. Gil, 20May2014.

    Hello Guys,
    I just finished building an SG Works Bullpup using a Norinco SKS. I installed the G5/1 mag adapter and it all went super smooth. This is the 4th SKS build for me and I now use Marcus's mag adapter on
    all of them. About 5 years ago I was really struggling with building a reliable removable mag SKS. I distroyed several Tapco duckbill mags trying to get them to feed reliably. Nothing really worked.
    I was 80% reliable at best. Then I heard about the SKSmagAdapter and bought a G3/1. Feeding problems 100% solved. Since then, I will not build an SKS without one. They are that reliable. And the mags
    now store easy like an AK or AR mag. No more duckbills .....quack quack!

  • Anthony D. (Monday, November 23 15 01:21 pm EST)

    Combined the adaptor with a Bullpup kit and everything Ben Murray offers. Completely different rifle- for the better. I have everything there is to buy and this makes an SKS far more fun and
    operable. Big props to Marcus for being the epitome of fantastic customer service and for caring that he produces a quality American designed and manufactured accessory for the SKS rifle.

  • MikeInTexas (Thursday, September 17 15 06:06 pm EDT)

    I had occasion to be up in Houston a couple of months ago, so I called Marcus to see if he could show me the magadapter. We looked at the G5 and the G9 and they are really great products. I am sold
    on the G9 and will be placing my order today! I am left handed so he is fitting me with an ambi mag release. Great product Marcus! Keep up the good work! MikeInTexas

  • Dean in Vegas (Wednesday, April 08 15 05:53 pm EDT)

    Forgot to mention I I bought the new version of the G3 in black anodized which disapears into the Tapco black stock.

  • Dean in Vegas (Wednesday, April 08 15 05:50 pm EDT)

    Marcus is The Man!!
    I finally got around to installing the adapter and all went smoothly. Since I also installed a Tapco Interfuse stock there was no need to modify the stock. My old cleaning rod aslo went back in place
    which was good since I have a flash hider that it lock in place. I did not use the railed upper hand guard since I like the smooth one and will now pick up a railed steel reciever to mount a 2X
    Barska tactical scope on, After that a Barska vertical front grip with intergrated light and a bipod that attaches to the bayonet mount and my SKS is a 21st Century "Black rifle".

  • Rocky (Tuesday, March 24 15 12:26 am EDT)

    I bought the G3 a couple months ago for my Yugo. I just put it in and went straight to the range. The fit was perfect with no modification needed for my tapco stock. Also modified 6 mags to go with
    it. Every mag ran flawlessly through 500 rnds. I am truly impressed with this adapter and would absolutely recommend to anyone. Oh yeah, and the customer service was outstanding.
    Thanks Marcus!!!!

  • Adam Armstrong (Sunday, February 22 15 09:36 am EST)

    Just finished up the sks with a sgworks kit and let me tell you knowing about the G/5, i probobly wouldnt have used the stock without this adapter man its so much better than the norm!
    Thanks again for the great product guys you did a great job on this thing!

  • adam armstrong (Tuesday, February 10 15 05:31 pm EST)

    I'm impressed and very thankful for the concern Marcus showed when i called to inquire about my order, which turned out to be mixed up at the post office. Its something when a random act of kindness
    is presented to you by someone you've never met or spoken to before that brings to question "why cant more people be like this guy?"
    To go out of his way to go to the post office and find my order and/ or replace it if its not there hardly would happen easy in any other situation, at least from what i've experienced from online
    shopping anyways. This guys the real deal man and i, for one of many im sure, will definately be a returning customer!
    For those of you thinking of buying from him, I encourage you fully as im confident you'll be as happy as i am with his service!
    Marcus, I thank you again for your dedication to your customers and ill speak with you again soon!

    Thank you Marcus Taliaferro for being the top leading innovator in the evolution of the SKS platform products and prompt, quick service for us SKS customers. You are great and I will definitely do
    more business with you in the future. Keep up the great work and thank you again for all your help on my SKS. Sammie Nasur

  • Robert (Sunday, November 02 14 04:37 pm EST)

    Marcus Taliaferro continues to be the top leading innovator in the evolution of the SKS platform. Marcus's products and customer service are both top notch.

    With the release of the G9/A adapter Marcus has, in my opinion, raised the SKS platform on level or even a bit above the the AR platform. The ease of mag changes is on par with the AR platform but
    without the high prices associated with the AR platform. No more duckbill mags, No more rock and lock to seat the mags, just a nice gentle push and your mag is seated and you are ready go.

    You take a tried and battle field proven firearm like the SKS, add the the upgrades Marcus has introduced and you will end up with a decades old firearm that performs better and is more reliable than
    most new production firearms available for a fraction of the cost.

    My preferred configuration for the SKS is as follows:

    Tapco T-16 stock, Either a set of Tech Sights for iron sights or a railed receiver cover held to zero with Marcus's Button head screw upgrade for scope/red dot, cheese grater hand guard, A-2 style
    birdcage threaded muzzle brake, Marcus's G9/A adapter.

    With a Marcus's G9/A adapter and the SKS configuration like I outlined above, you will have all the other shooters at the range green with envy and wanting to own a SKS like yours.

    I recently installed the g5 on my bullpup project...love it! Only thing better than the quality of the product is the customer service. Great experience as a customer.

  • Ron Chramosta (Saturday, November 01 14 11:48 am EDT)

    Installed the G5 in my SG Works bullpup today and it works great! Love having th mag release in front of the magazine. Thank you for the great product!

  • Louis (Sunday, October 19 14 10:29 pm EDT)

    Originally a user of the G5 adapter, I recently upgraded my SKS to utilize the G9 adapter with the ASC magazine. This adapter is amazing. I have shot over 200 rounds though it so far with various
    ammo - runs like a charm. Customer service was excellent - I stopped by Marcus' shop and he tweaked the installation for me at no charge. I plan on buying another one to build my son a hog hunter
    edition.

  • cmblake6 (Tuesday, September 16 14 12:05 pm EDT)

    I've had a G3 for years, it works beautifully. Due to a CBRPS stock install, I'm buying a G5. I have no doubt it will work every bit as well, and I trust Marcus with any customer service I may ever
    need.

  • Zachary Taylor (Wednesday, September 03 14 03:30 pm EDT)

    Just finished installing this mod for a customer in the bullpup stock, and saw on your instructions page that you hadn't done that yet, so just letting you know it's the same steps and rather simple.
    I'm actually Impressed (and NEVER am with SKS related anything), and would easily recommend to other customers.
