Re: SKS has problem firing

I had it together like the pic on top. I just don't understand what or why that would have caused a firing problem. Jeez, if I'm correct that is a return spring for the bolt, isn't it? He didn't charge me for what ever he did and that might be a good thing because I haven't fired it yet. he said he ...

Re: SKS has problem firing

I got the SKS back from the gunsmith today. He took it over the weekend and did some test firing to find out the problem. If any one ever has this problem here is the answer. The recoil spring has to fit at the rear of the reciever not on the little ledge that is at the end also. It has to fit loose...

Re: SKS has problem firing

Thanks for all of the help. I think it has something to do with the spring. Norm, the firing pin is in excellent condition. It is nice and smooth with no sharpp edges anywhere. And, I will look at the spring to see if it has been modified. Thanks again for all of the goood ideas.

Re: SKS has problem firing

I already have the trigger assembly taken out. I'm going to look for a new hammer spring since that seems to be the culprit. I am going to look around and see if someone has posted something that would be of use to me in finding a new spring. I'm going to go with juniustaylor and say trigger spring....

Re: SKS has problem firing

You kind of verified what I was thinking. The firing pin on my sks is free floating, it has no adjustment as far as I know and there is no spring, however, Murray has a spring loaded firing pin for $39 which I may try after reading your post. Thanks for your input max30109.

SKS has problem firing

I have a 1958 mod. 56 SKS that does not fire all the time. Sometimes it will fire one then skip one or fire two and skip three or four etc. I removed the bolt and the firing pin, the firing pin was way to easy to remove, I did it with my fingers no tools required. I was wondering if I need a new fir...

Re: problems with Sellier & Bellot ammo

I thank everyone for the input. I guess anything that is manufactured can have screw up's on occasion. Its good to know that all of us have a position on our favorite and least favorite ammo which gives good info for all of us. I will probably give S&B another try. But, I will shoot up my Silver Bea...

Re: problems with Sellier & Bellot ammo

The only number on the box is a bar code number, which is 7 80166 00901 6. Now this number could be on every box of 9x18 ammo that goes out, I don't know. I do know that they forgot to put some gunpowder in 2 cartridges that I have found. I have shot S & B before and have not had a problem, amybe th...

Re: problems with Sellier & Bellot ammo

This may help someone make a decision about what to buy. It may be good stuff and I may have gotten a bad bunch, but I'll not buy anymore.

problems with Sellier & Bellot ammo

I was at the range today and had bought a box of Sellier & Bellot ammo. I fired a clip full with no problem but the second clip full one of the shots felt a little light. Checked my Pistole and all seemed OK. I installed a second clip full and I felt a non-recoil no loud noise poof. I checked my bbl...

Re: Restoring

I guess it's all in a persons experience with a certaint product. I like Birchwood - Casey remover and blueing.It is a slow process, but doing it right is well worth the time and elbow grease. I know you will do well.
