Instilled the new firing/mag release spring seems to function perfectly have not fired the weapon with it yet. I will post a update when I do.
Why do the upgrade?
I have an SKS and it functions OK.
More for maintenance then upgrade, I don’t know how old the other one was. Not really sure how old the rifle is either
If you enter this friendly monthly shoot you can take the opportunity to test the SKS out and enter targets.
You will find some targets shot with SKS with my name on them.
Here is the backgrounder, contact @Festus if you have questions.
FEBRUARY MATCH TARGETS
All set to go. A thank you to @phuzzy42 for this months targets. As always, any suggestions can be PM’ed to me for consideration.
A reminder that for all rifle divisions, those shooting with iron sights will earn a bonus of 2 points at 25 & 50 yards while a 5 point bonus for 100 yards still applies. Five rounds per target, shoot as many divisions as you wish but submit only one target per division.
Handgunners will be shooting the “Dead Man’s Hand” Hit the suit symbol (clubs) for 10 points, a hit to the playing card is good for 5. Aces & Eights
Riflemen in the 50 & 100 yard divisions will shoot this Rifle Target
For the 25 yard divisions we have a tribute to Anne Oakley. Annie Oakley A hit on Annie will result in a penalty.

Do you know how to date my sks? The serial number starts with 32 it has the 26 triangle but it is not in the correct spot. They are on the left side of the bllt but the number is first than the triangle all the things I have seen the triangle is first.
Is it a Chinese SKS? Post some photos so we can see your rifle. I like gun porn.
Here’s a good site for Russian SKS reference.
Great sites you linked here, the Russian SKS link is my goto, very informative.
