As a couple of you might remember I bought a Norinco SKS back in January. Stupid me I didn't check it out as thoroughly as I should have-last time that will EVER happen.
With other rifle purchases around the same time, I haven't had a chance to shoot it a whole lot, maybe only 100 or so rounds through it.
Last time I shot it I had a 2 slam fires. I put it back in the corner for another time. Got it out yesterday, and took it apart. I believe the idiot who owned it before me might have tried to make it full auto by tampering with the trigger sear.
- I can cock it, let the action fly forward, and can't switch the SAFETY back and forth 10 times without it fireing-dry fireing it of course.
-If however, I cock it, let the action back VERY SLOWLY, I can switch the safety on and off as much as I need too without it fireing-again dry fireing
What do you guys suggest?
I thought I would order a new trigger assembly for it, and some newer parts.
Need some feedback-this rifle is very dangerous right now and I am not going to take it out again untill I can fix this problem.
What you described sounds like a FCG problem no doubt about it. Sounds like the sear is letting go when the bolt slams shut. A slamfire would be if the pin sticks out and hits the primer prematurely. There would be no dry fire in that case.
Get a complete FCG and your worries should be over. Then inspect the old one, destroy any moronized parts, and sell the rest (or keep them as spares).
