Never heard of such a thing.

Highly unlikely.

The only way this could be possible, is if somebody did some custom work to the barrel.

A lot more work than just the barrel,mag is to short by a half inch or so to accept the round so the receiver would have to be modified also. I've seen this question come up before but in my many years of dealing with SKS rifle I've have never seen anyone actually produce one in any shape or form.

This person would have to provide a huge amount of pictures to prove this is real. My bet is you'll get pics of bigfoot first.

I own a Sino-Soviet SKS. It is in 7.62x39. Guy probably got his 7.62mm calibers mixed up.
