An amazing resource on SKS rifles

Recommended Posts

I stumbled across this and although I am not an SKS aficionado I do know there are some here. This IS the most comprehensive gathering of pictures the SKS that I have ever seen.

 

Here is a detailed listing of what is on each of the 46 webpages of information.

And here is page 1.

Visited that page many times.  Lot's of great information there even though from a technical standpoint the website sucks.

It's an excellent site to help you figure out just what type and country  your SKS rifle came from.  Most SKS rifle stayed pretty much the same through there production life.  However the Yugoslovian SKS rifles went through a couple of changes and the Chinese SKS rifle had many varients as well as different mfg. changes to speed up production and cut cost.

Can anyone tell me, in Tennessee, are you more likely to get approved to buy a shot gun or rifle rather than a handgun?

If you're over 21, it doesn't matter. 

What does this have to do with an SKS thread from 3 years ago?

Thought it was only 21 for handguns?

Hey, thanks for resurrecting this thread! 

I went out shooting yesterday, including a Yugo SKS that I bought from a guy a few weeks ago.  He said it has a spring-loaded Murray firing pin, and had some documentation accordingly.

I shot one strip of 10, no problem.

Then halfway through the next clip, got a no-fire.   Ejected that shell, but then couldn't get anything to fire after that.

Upon inspection, none of the ejected no-fires had even a hint of a strike on the primer.

I've searched all over, and I can find lots of discussions about light strikes, but nothing about no-strikes.

Any thoughts, anyone?   And, thank you in advance!

It is and that’s what he said...a year ago in response to an irrelelevant question in an ever older thread about an SKS website.

Take the springy thing out and put a proper free-float pin in.  That’s the way they were designed.

Yeah, that's my first instinct, though you'd think the spring would get the pin where it needs to be.  That's what I don't understand. I do have the original pin, so I will try that, and will try to keep it really clean.  Don't wanna get slam-fired!

If you have the original firing pin I highly recommend you put it back in.  If you’re concerned about a slam fire, which is pretty rare, make sure the firing pin channel is free of any dried cosmoline or other such funk.  

Some Hoppe’s and a pipe cleaner will clear it out quickly.

I'm not really seriously concerned about a slam fire, because I can control that anyway, and I think the probability of it is tiny.  I will take your suggestion and put the rifle back in its original condition.  Stay tuned.....may be a few weeks though.  Might even be after the move to TN!    

Thanks, Garufa

What Garufa said. 

Not sure about the light/no strikes either, unless the tip broke off the firing pin.  Some surplus ammo can have pretty hard primers, so light strikes could look like no strikes. 

Slam fire is pretty unlikely, but there's no way you could control it if you weren't expecting it. The 3rd or 4th round would be at least a foot up.  Any rounds after that will be way off target.  It'll empty the 10 round magazine in just over a second.

As good As that site is there are so many different stamps, on some like mine that you'll never know the import year or factory.

My Chinese has bayonet stubs that look to be factory ground. The stamp is similar but not like any shown on that site.

To be compliant it has to be original or have so many US parts. Missing the bayonet is why I tried to research it.

Although I've never heard anybody getting in trouble over a non complient SKS.
